Lily G New Website and Country Music Rising Star

Well we all survived a tonne of Chocolate and I have just ordered a huge box of fruit and veggies to go on a week long detox fast....I'll see how long I can hold out!! Ha ha!!
Me being the spontaneous girl that I am decided at the last minute that a 2 day break to a child friendly resort was a much better idea than cooking and preparing for a family of 12 for Emerson's Easter Birthday extravaganza. So I have no beautiful Easter table photo's to show, but we did have a fabulous time at The Marriott  and I highly recommend it if you want a family friendly break.
What is news though is that a couple of months back a young Country singer named Jacqui Ryan recorded her music video in my store. She is a lovely, talented girl and we were so delighted that they decided that Lily G was the perfect location for her video..If you ever wanted to see my store Lily G up close and personal and listen to a beautiful song at the same time go here .
More news...Our new Website is up!!! Sooo exciting!! There are a few little tweeks to be done but I couldn't wait (very impatient actually :)) Hope you like The New Look!! Let me know what you all think!!
Lily G new website here .
A bit of sad news the cafe attached to my store has been closed indefinately. My brother (who has been running it for me) has been offered a fabulous job elsewhere and I am too busy with Decorating to give it the attention and investment of time that it needs. I would rather not do something if I can't do it absolutely to the best of my ability so I am closing it pending another tenant wanting to take it on.
We are concentrating on what we do best....Decorating & Design and Home Inspirational pieces.
Have a brilliant Week!!

Easter...Hippity, Hoppity!!

Hippity to the shops, Hoppity to work...The list of to do's is massive...when you have an overwhelming to do list do you; prioritise with doing a few things well?? or broad strokes on as much as possible? I always seem to end up procrastinating and find bizarre things to do like vacuum under the fridge!! ha ha!
Sooo Easter is upon us!
Don't you love Easter all those yummy pastel colours and beautiful table decorating options. Easter has always been a magical time for me and my family and I hope I am passing on that magic to my two boys.
It is Emerson's 6th Birthday the day before Easter so we will be having a combined birthday lunch for Emerson and an Easter lunch for family and friends so I have been stressing over themes....not too pretty and easter-y for a 6 year old boy, but still a seasonal feel.

He does love bunnies so that made it easier...in the end I've decided I'm going to keep it natural and fresh with some rabbits. Will post a photo once I have finished it, but this picture here is a good
illustration of what I am thinking....if it wasn't his birthday I would definitely be doing pastels and marshmallow bunnies.
I do love the simplicity of these daisies and the apple green of the table ware.

So pretty, our Easter tree at Lily G is nearly empty but there is still time to grab some gorgeous hanging eggs.

I'm not sure if I am not just madly in love with this Wisteria...DIVINE!!!

Cloche's are a fabulous way to make even the most mundane item look special..

Gorgeous for an outdoor luncheon...if our weather holds up we are definitely having ours out on the lawn...is it wrong to make everyone wear pastels?? p.s love the faux grass as place mat!!

So pretty
