I marvel at The Marvellous Tea Dance Company



Marvellous does not even come close, I have just polished off THE most delicious cake I have ever tasted. So tasty in fact I could not wait until morning to tell you lovely Pocketful of Dreams readers all about it.

I met The Marvellous Tea Dance Company ladies at todays Vintage Wedding Fair in Harrogate, their pop-up tea room was so enticing but I was very good and resisted temptation to stuff my face there and then, opting instead to take away two lovely slices of cake to have at home. And boy am I glad I did.

The two slices in question included a classic Victoria Sponge, complete with glittery strawberries and perfect for little old me. Plus a manly portion of the Guinness Cake for Mr Dreams. Well! I have to say my greedy eyes got the better of me and after one little forkful of Mr Dreams’s slice I made him share half with me (of course sharing half of mine with him, I’m not a total Miss Piggy).

Simply the most delicious cake I have ever eaten. FACT.

I am still drooling, you just have to check these ladies out. They offer an authentic Tea Dance experience complete with patterned bunting, pretty embroidered tablecloths, crocheted doilies, vintage gilt mirrors, fairy lights and plenty of those delicious cakes as well as sandwiches and tea served in the cutest vintage china.

Check out their website for forthcoming events or a quote for your own Vintage Tea Dance, I guarantee your guests will be talking about these cakes for months, even years to come!

Loving all the pastel popping up on the runways. It doesn't have to be sugary sweet it's all in the application. #wedding
Sometimes we just need a little reminder. We're definitely dreamers and proud of being so, constantly thinking up new and better ways of doing things, thinking about how we can improve & what we want to achieve. Tag a friend who needs reminding of this. 👇
Oh @Dior how we love thee. Industrial scaffolding contrasted with delicate pastel pink & shimmering mirrored walls. So inspiring
Working on something a little different in the studio currently. Incorporating the family tartan of one of our #wedding grooms and the brides love of fresh green.
Gamechanger! @hemsleyhemsley #healthyliving #hemsleyhemsley #spiralizer
So I'm honoured to have been nominated for the #20BeautifulWomen challenge, but being the inquisitive creature I am I wanted to understand what it was for & how it started but it seems it's a bit of a mystery. Maybe something to do with the book by Saba Tekle via @huffingtonpost or simply to celebrate women who are beautiful inside and out: visionary, kind, inspiring and empowering women. So yeah I'm all up for that. Author of said book defines a beautiful woman as this: "A beautiful woman shares her story so other women won't feel alone. A beautiful woman is peaceful: she has made peace with her past. A beautiful woman is passionate: she is on fire with a strong desire to change the world. A beautiful woman is purposeful: she knows why she was born and does what she was created here to do. Be beautiful." My 20 beautiful & inspirational ladies are all tagged in - I tried to cheat and add more but it won't let me!
Could not be more excited for my gorgeous client #augustbride #Repost @object_style with @repostapp.

We're talking heavenly handwriting on the blog currently & lusting after this @urbanic hand-lettering card printed in copper foil on a moody grey stock. --- In an increasingly digital era, it’s refreshing to see talented designers perfecting this age-old tradition with a modern twist. Combining modern printing techniques with the elegance and class of this most stylistic art form.
Drink it all in: I try to live relatively healthy and know one of the very best things I can do for body and mind is to drink plenty of water. Bought myself a pretty jug to sit on my desk to remind me to drink more, I aim for 4-5 of these per day. It's a small goal but the difference is huge, less bloating, clear skin & a clarity of mind that's unbelievable. What are your health goals this year? Tag yourself in and share....
