Are you celebrating your big day this summer? With peak wedding season soon to be in full swing, we lend a hand with our ideas to help you add the final touches to your celebration. Whether you’re going with the traditional white colour scheme or celebrating your big day in non-conventional style, we have plenty of ideas for the season to rock your boat.
If you’re a couple who love all things vintage and are looking for something with a nostalgic, whimsical feel for your celebration you’ll love the Vintage Rose range. As the name suggests, this collection is unashamedly romantic, featuring a classic rose bloom as a central motif across everything you need to dress your reception. As well as lovely pieces of tableware, perfect for your evening buffet or canapés, the range includes gorgeous accessories to integrate into your celebration. If you want to give your cakes that special extra something add some cupcake cases and picks, perfect for making your sweet treats stand out. We love the idea of creating a tower of cupcakes, iced in pastel colours and topped with pretty rose sugar craft decorations. A co-ordinating cake stand is also included in the range, a simple way to make an eye-catching display. You could perhaps include your cakes in a candy buffet, a trend which is becoming increasingly popular and which makes a great alternative to the standard sit-down dessert course.
Looking for something a bit different for your child’s birthday celebration? Something that hints at good-natured mischief and fun? Then our new range – based on one of popular culture’s most enduringly popular duos – is just the ticket.
There are few double-acts that have captured the imagination quite like Dennis The Menace and Gnasher, the prank-loving duo who first appeared in The Beano comic way back in 1951. Their hilarious misdemeanours have spurned a popular TV show, too, bringing the pair to an even wider audience of new fans.
Now lovers of the duo’s colourful exploits can theme their special day around their heroes with our new party range, the perfect antidote to the more ubiquitous ranges on the market. It’s a bold, colourful collection, perfectly encapsulating the spirit of the comic strip with its vibrant colours, distinctive typography and iconic black and red stripes.
If you’ll be welcoming a new arrival in 2015 you might be wondering about having a baby shower. In between all the other frantic preparations for the big day, it might seem a bit daunting to consider a party on top off all the other things you need to do on what can seem a never ending checklist! But the good news is it’s one of the few times you can ask someone else to do all – or at least a big chunk of – the preparations. Traditionally these parties aren’t organised by the mum-to-be but by a close friend or family member. Which is good news if heaving your pregnant tummy around is using up all your energy right now! That’s not to say you can’t get involved in the preparations, but it does mean you can leave the practicalities to someone else while you focus on the less labour intensive stuff! It’s worth bearing in mind that these parties are often organised as a surprise for the mum-to-be, so if you are thinking of having a gathering, you might want to check with your close friends and family that they haven’t already got something up their sleeves.
