Aussie Christmas Picnic

Last weekend we went on a little Christmas Picnic. Our friend and very talented photographer Kitty from Choc & Spice Photography took these beautiful photos. More details below.

This was the first photo shoot I've styled, and I had heaps of fun! I chose a strawberry picnic theme as little Miss C loves strawberries, and they really tie in with the sweetness of summer and Christmas in Australia.

We had a perfect summer's day down by the beach for our picnic and enjoyed mini picnic loaves filled with roasted capsicum (red peppers), pesto, feta cheese, salami and cos lettuce. They were wrapped in grease proof paper and tied with red and white twine and placed in cute little paper gift bags.
For dessert, the sponge cake with fresh cream and strawberries tasted as good as it looked and there were plenty of fresh strawberries to enjoy with the Hibiscus Iced tea. It was a great way to celebrate the start of summer and the Christmas season and capture some beautiful family memories.

Hello and welcome to Random Acts of Sweetness!

My name is Bethany and I am a Mum to one gorgeous little girl, wife of a Swedish dreamboat and follower of Jesus. I Love baking sweet treats and flicking through cookbooks filled with sweet treats that, let's be honest, I really won't have time to make! On a typical Saturday morning you can usually find me at home in the garden, under the shade of our jacaranda tree, drinking tea, dreaming of a party to plan or what vegetables we should plant next.
A Florist in a former life I am currently trying to plant flowers in the garden so I can pick them and arrange them in a vase! I hope this blog will be a way for me to collect and share ideas for a truly sweet life.
