Our DMs are blowing up after posting our work lunch today - Potato Gem toasties.

For anyone who knows me even remotely, you'll know my love of the gems is strong and long, dating back to the 80s. My Dad alleges I once stabbed him with a fork when he tried to steal a Gem. I don't recall this BUT often unthinkable things ARE pushed to the recesses of our minds, so I guess that's where that memory is Dad, you monster ๐Ÿ˜‚. So how do you make such a delight? Here's the recipe:

1.Get drunk on Sunday afternoon with wedding gang @fidelandsarah, @goldandgrit, @btw_ily_weddings and @verygoodproducts.

2. Make Potato Gem Bake (PGB) for dinner because you are drunk. Should you wish to know that recipe too, it's on our blog. For realsies.

3. Have left over PGB which you ingeniously decide will be a mega treat lunch on your first day back after hols.

4. Pack up bread, butter, cheese and ham, and PGB that you couldn't finish due to drunkness.

5. Assemble your sanga; bread, ham, PGB, cheese. Wack it in the toastie maker til golden and ENJOY while thinking about how life is glorious.

As a side note, Taste Magazine's cover recipe very recently was some stolen IP of mine about Potato Gem nachos. HOW VERY DARE THEY?

Raise your potato emoji if you love the gems! ๐Ÿฅ”๐Ÿฅ”๐Ÿฅ”๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ’Ž๐Ÿ’Ž

We've said it before - it's pretty weird that in this modern day, your business report cards are popped onto Google and Facebook by your customers.

Lucky for us, we get the very bestest people who want to work with us and we love them to death and they're the raddest types who want to create something different and fab and fun and party! Like Hannah + Ravi, whose wedding you see here!

Ravi got in touch last year and together we created their India meets Melbourne wedding at Fitzroy Town Hall. Ravi said:ย "What an absolute pleasure it was to work with Kate and her team (not to mention all the other fantastic vendors Kate put us in touch with). The amazing furniture goes without saying but I think what we enjoyed most about working with Kate is that she really got exactly what we were after, had such an easy going and can-do attitude and just ran with it and made our lives less stressful. Needless to say the result was just incredible and a huge thanks to Kate for her wonderful styling and helping us pull off the most incredible day." WE LOVE YOU HANNAH + RAVI and not just because you Google reviewed us.

The label 'rustic' is thrown around a LOT in the wedding industry. And particularly when talking about vintage weddings. We are not so much into the rustic feel - or at least the one that comes up if you have a looky-loo at rustic weddings on Pinterest (ya know, burlap, lace wrapped jars, baby's breath). But we CAN get behind rustic when it looks like this!

This is what you get when fab wedding dress designer @cathleen_jia gets married at @tanglewoodestate with @poppyculture_hq on florals duty. DREAM. Rustic, but certainly not musty.

You can hire these very chairs from us. You shall find them listed on our website, as is the modern way, you rustic lovers.

I feel like we bang on about bars a very lot lot. And that is because we are party people. Who like a drink. And a party. And a chat. At a bar. With a drink.

The reason for our oft-bar-talk? Fantastic events have focal points that draw people and bars are fecking great for that.

So if we were to give some advice? Step away from the plastic trestle table. And read the previous sentence - make it a focal point!

This is our Golden Gaytime bar - styled with knickie knackies and plants also from our collection and flowers from @goodgraceandhumour and custom designed tin cans by @byjenamarie for Em + Nick's wedding at @two_ton_max. Photo by @jeromecole.

Why? Because we are on holidays. BYE! The wedding season is pretty much over for us - it's been going since 2 September so ya know, it feels kind of like a Game of Thrones winter in length and thus we need a GD break.

Stevie is still around to deal with your vintage furniture and styling needs a coupla days a week for the next two weeks.

See you all soon, all sparkly and fresh and ready for the next lot of excellent people and events!

We just finished the wedding season with a bang (and some whacking with sticks), helping our friends Tara + Adem get married in a pretty major way at Melbourne Town Hall.

Because no wedding is complete (since yesterday) without a Pinata Forest โ„ข. Twenty pinatas attached to our copper arch, transformed into a twiggy, ribbon-y forest.

Swipe across to see some action shots, including a gorgeous flower girl going for it, the aftermath and the bride and I busting out moves. Everything about this wedding was epic and amazing, as befits the legendary + grand venue and the bride and groom who are fantastic, unique, thoughtful legends.

You can see a bunch more stuff on our stories right now - including one of the greatest ceremony backdrops I've ever seen!

Congratulations to Tara + Adem and all the legend couples from the last nine months of wedding season, who've invited us to be part of their celebrations. It's been a crazy ride, and we are really grateful for every single one of you! Now we holiday. GOOD DAY!

Oh what a lovely table setting. Now that I have you, may I suggest that you head over to our Facebook account and follow us there. The reason is threefold:
1) We are a very grown up business who posts a different set of content over on Facebook. Magic!
2) You'll get to see the nice things my Mum comments on each post. It's kinda cute.ย 
3) You'll receive 12 millions dollars. This might not be true. It's def not true. But what if it is? Best go follow us and find out.

Head to our profile > click the link > and voila! It'll take you to our Facey page. Good day!

While you sit there enjoying this photo of our Smokey cane side table, we are AT a wedding, AS GUESTS, sitting in a fabulous lounge area created by us, actually getting to enjoy it AS GUESTS.

After doing a big styling set-up like today's for Adem + Tara, we'd normally be home by now, having a few celebratory beverages, trying to decide what to order from UberEats for 2.6 hours and stalking Insta to try and see images of the wedding to make sure everyone is having fun. Very dorky, but it's true.

Speaking of lounge areas - which we do really often - don't forget to include a couple of side tables per lounge area because it's pretty important to have somewhere to put things like clutches and drinks and phones and napkins and whatnot, never forget the whatnot.

They're often forgotten or omitted from lounge areas and it's a crying shame. Actually, it's just a regular shame. We have about 40 small tables in cane, timber, glass, perspex, metal, mirrors and unicorns, so we've got you covered.

My eyeballs exploded when I saw Emilio and Marta's Spanish wedding, shot by @pablobeglez. It is way too fabulous and amazing for my pathetic tiny vocabulary to try to describe, so I suggest you get across to @togetherjournal to see the whole thing. A wedding VW? HEART EYES AND YES PLEASE.

I don't think you can love vintage and retro and colour without having a raging boner for Palm Springs.

In the words of one of my heroes, Liz Lemon, "I would like to go to there". And here - specifically - because it's the Palm Spring's Woman's Club - a non-profit dedicated to intellectual improvement, social enjoyment and helpfulness in the community. And aren't they all totally rad things to want to improve.

So, one day I shall go to Palm Springs and I will take a hundred million photos and talk about how I went there to anyone who will listen until I die (most likely of being strangled by someone who just doesn't care to hear my Palm Springs stories anymore). Photo: @elizabethulrichdesign via @accidentallywesanderson which is a rad Insta account, and you should follow it if you have any decency.

If you want a wedding as rad as this, then you best start stockpiling confetti and cakes and party poppers and magic.

You could also give us a holla, because putting together OTT fun times party weddings is our jam. We LOVE starting with a blank canvas, a couple and a few hopes and dreams, and then making that into a sparkly fabulous time for all involved. Coincidentally, we have a fab new brochure outlining how we can help you create your own dream wedding, so slide into our DMs should you wanna cast your eye over it.
