Did you see us in Homemaker Magazine?

16 Sep

Hello! Did you see us in Homemaker magazine last month? We were so happy to be featured in ‘Gather Friends for a Sweet Occasion’. I have been a BIG fan of Homemaker magazine for sometime so was chuffed to bits to mentioned.

Some of our products to be featured were our paper straws, baking cups and candy bags. I love the colour combination and something I would have never thought of myself; blues, apricots, pinks and teal.

Let us know what you think! Happy Monday to you all xxx

Miss Etoile Autumn / Winter Collection

14 Sep

I have been a big fan of Danish design company ‘Miss Etoile’ for some time. Two weeks ago I headed up to Birmingham to check out the latest products at the Autumn Gift Fair and to my utter delight Miss Etoile were exhibiting! It was a chance to see their products in the flesh and I wasn’t disappointed.

Initially I will stock their cake stands, cake toppers, paper lanterns, confetti, doilies and sweet jars. Too happy! Miss Etoile represent glamour and elegance. The best thing is that the quality of the items is amazing but doesn’t have the price tag to match! Here are a few of my favourite products…..

Pastel Party Items

Miss Etoile products will be available from The Sweet Hostess online shop by the end of the month. All products are now being featured on our website. We hope you love the items as much as we do!

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Happy September lovely people!

What a busy August! How was yours? If you live in the UK like myself you must be feeling pretty chuffed about the gorgeous weather we have been experiencing – Thank you England!

I have loved August and looking back on my photos their has been so much going on! Two of my friends have gotten married and you will see a vintage inspired candy buffet I did for one of them. It didn’t really go to plan as the table provided was way too small and the immense wind meant I couldn’t display all my decorations, but the busyness of it all sort of goes with the vintage theme.

Plums. My lovely plums 🙂

Bottom right is a baby shower dessert table, which incidentally will be one of my last for a while (more on this later). The heart shortbread and cupcakes featured on the dessert table. I loved the little glitter heart cake toppers.

I discovered crazy jelly beans. Loads of different flavours and shapes – Tasstttttyyy!

Gold and white shredded paper, cute and crafty. New in the shop.

Wishing you a wonderful week xx
