Last week I have the pleasure of working with Lisa from Pretty Pedestals to put together this lovely Wedding Morning Brunch – the perfect way to start your wedding day with your bridesmaids and close family and I would say this would go down a treat for a morning wedding celebration as well.

Lisa has a beautiful collection of Vintage Cake Stands and Bowls that she hires out as well as special furniture pieces that look just wonderful with elegant stands on top.  All that you see in the images below is available for hire plus so much more.
The food that we served was all super healthy and filled with loads of goodness to get you through your big day.  Granola, Mini Pancake Stacks, beautiful fresh fruit and to drink a divine Apple Cocktail.

Today we are sharing one of the yummy Granola recipes but keep checking during the week as well will also be sharing the recipes for the other items in the coming days.

Pretty Pedestals is located in Sydney and if you head to my instagram or Facebook page you can go in the running to win a $200 Pretty Pedestals voucher for stand hire, simply by reposting or sharing the photo of the beautiful stands and tagging @sweetstyle and @prettypedestals using the hashtag #styleprettypedestals.   You need to be able to collect and return from Pretty Pedestals in Sydney.  Alternatively if you are not on Instagram or Facebook then please leave a comment here telling us how you would style these pretty pedestals
