A couple of weeks ago we delivered a couple of display wedding cakes to a brand new venue – The Folly at the Farmhouse at Mackworth – for a week of pre-launch events.

The fabulous Kate at Vintage Style Hire and Karen at Darby and Joan were styling the Folly and a number of suppliers (including us!) were providing bits to help show it off to its full potential.

The three themes were ‘Peaches and Cream’, ‘The Enchanted Forest’ and ‘Floral Burst’. Russet and Gray provided some gorgeous stationery. The glittery gold on the peach stationery was incredible and was also the inspiration for our Peach Peony and Pearls cake pictured in the gallery below. The second cake was a twist on our signature rustic buttercream cake to fit with the Enchanted Forest theme.

And a wedding wouldn’t be complete without favours for your guests. Natural favours sent along some of their wildflower favour packets. Perfect for creating your very own enchanted forest!

On Thursday 26th March we were lucky enough to go to the opening launch party for the Farmhouse at Mackworth. It was a chance to have a proper look around (the bedrooms – wow!) and sample some of the gorgeous food and drink.

The Secret Library

The mojitos were a definite winner and were enjoyed in the fabulously quirky secret library – complete with flying books!

The Farmhouse at Mackworth is now open and we’ll certainly be back, both for a delicious meal and also hopefully working with lots of future brides and grooms in the Folly!
