Our DIY Sweetie Cart

Hi Ladies my Dad is making me a Sweetie cart and Ice Cream buffet cart for our wedding, 28th August.

Im so excited about it image

Our colour theme is lemon and soft pink. I am thinking of painting it a mix of lemon, pink and white? What do you think?

Progress so far...

Thanks xx

    Fabulous! What a talented dad!

    I think they would be beautiful painted but I would stick to one of the colours rather than all three (probably white) and then perhaps put bows on the handles (lemon and pink).

    I agree with ezz100, You definitely should hire out afterwards!
  • wow that looks amazing

    Amberlinnie, that's INCREDIBLE!

    My great uncle used to be really good at making things like that; he made my rabbit hutch and my doll's house when i was little. It's so nice when someone you love has made it for you!

    I quite like the idea of painting it in lemon and white stripes, sort of circus tent feel, then using the pale pink for details like the hearts, wheels, edging.

    Yes I am very lucky, all I asked for was a back drop and the box step haha! He has made another one but designed it so there is a freezer built under it for ice cream.

    Yes I am thinking mostly white, with the back drop lemon and white stripe. I love the idea of bows! I think I might get fabric for the canopy? He want to put lights in it.... He is getting carried away image

    No a bad idea renting it out, little side business for me there, I am already thinking about doing cupcakes. hehe.

    I will post another pic when I have painted it, see what you ladies think.

    Thanks image
