How to Make Money Flower Arranging

HOW TO MAKE MONEY FLOWER ARRANGING

I didn’t really know how to do flower arranging until I got married. I wanted to save money on my wedding and when I started looking at the cost of wedding flowers I was sure I could do it cheaper myself.

For my wedding I needed 3 bouquets, flowers for the guest tables, flowers for the top table, button holes and a cake topper.  The cost was hundreds of pounds!

Fresh flowers were the most expensive. I didn’t want the stress on the day of waiting for fresh flowers to arrive.  To me, it was just another thing to worry about, so I settled on artificial flowers.

I decided to have a go at making my own and made a huge saving with all of my wedding flowers costing me £70. After the wedding I then sold them in the local paper for £50. This gave me the idea that I could make money flower arranging!

Today I will share with you how you can do the same using artificial flowers. (more…)

Diggerland Review

DIGGERLAND REVIEW

Diggerland was my 7 year old son’s choice of birthday treat this year.  We ask him each year whether he would like a party or a special day out and this year, much to my delight and relief, he chose a day out.

We love family days out and my son is crazy about all things to do with construction, so this was the perfect combination for us to celebrate his day.

There are currently four Diggerland locations across the UK.  The current parks are in Kent, Devon, Durham and Yorkshire with another one planned for the not too distant future.  We chose Devon because we keep our little caravan down there so it made sense to combine the two visits.

THE ASDA CHRISTMAS SAVINGS CARD – A SIMPLE WAY TO START SAVING

“Saving for Christmas? What”?  I hear you ask!

As I write this blog post, it’s the middle of summer and 24 degrees outside.  I’m sure saving for Christmas is the last thing on your mind.  But should it be?

The majority of Brits are hopeless when it comes to saving for Christmas.  Leaving it until the last minute is what most of us do, making the stress of the big day overtake the fun and festivities that lead up to it.

With gifts, extra food, new clothing and homewares on the list of things we spend on in the weeks before Christmas,  it’s not surprising that many people go into debt to get through.

So, what if there was a really simple way that you could start saving for Christmas now?
