Both my children have their own special plants in our garden, which they chose, planted and help to look after. My youngest {and most romantic} dreamed of a yellow rose, which begins to flower in her birthday month of June. {You can see B’s conker tree here.}The first of the blooms are just starting to drop and, before they make their way to the compost heap, we gathered some up to make a fragrant sensory tub.

Rose petals have such a silky feel, and we only needed a few flowers to fill the whole tub. We added in a wedding pair of Sylvanian rabbits, along with some foil shapes for confetti and a little wedding breakfast feast.

And L collected some extra tiny flowers to make the bride a bouquet.
