Wood Fired Pizza and other Italian favourites for Christmas dinner.

I know it's August but I wanted to share with you these photos of the Ipswich Women in Business's Christmas in July (and it had an Italian flavour). We were raising funds on the evening for Team Cupcake which is an incredible cause and a recently founded organisation supporting women living with Cancer. I think the photos say it all because we had such an incredible evening and everything was just beautiful.

A huge thanks to Wood Fired Pizza Party not only for their delicious offerings but for taking a few snaps for us

  6. Dearest Louisa,

    You got some very classy sets here and your setup is done very well too. Wish you good luck in finding ladies to adopt these lovely cups & saucers from Spode.

    Love to you,

  7. Dearest Louisa,

    Sorry, this was meant to be for the Spode cups & saucers but I had a real hard time to comment on your post. It rejected me over and over. Don't know why?!
    Am your new follower now...
    Love to you,
