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…..

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.

A Mint & Gold Dessert Table

2 Apr

Hi folks, hope you are all well on this fine Tuesday. Late last year I organised a styled shoot of two of my favourite colours – Mint and Gold! These two amazing colours are a match made in heaven especially when incorporated into Weddings.

Now ya’ll know how I LOVE a good ole Candy Buffet, but I have to admit I LOVE a dessert table even more. With this one I combined the two. A little candy and a little dessert and this is what happened…….

Now creating your own DIY version is not that hard. If you are planning on creating a dessert table for a party or your own wedding, why not try a mini version first? It will give you an idea on the time it takes to create and will give you a chance to practice any recipes before your big day.

Sugar Swizzle Sticks are now in the UK!

28 Mar

We are soooo excited to announce that we are now stocking sugar swizzle sticks otherwise known as rock candy in the US. You may have seen the white or brown sugar swizzle sticks that you can swirl lovingly in your coffee or tea, but we have colour! This really is BIG news!

I have had many requests for these and people often ask why can’t you find them in the UK? Several rumours have been circulating including the colouring is not approved by the Food Agency and they are too expensive to import in. Yes, it is not cheap to import them that much is true BUT hopefully my prices are still are affordable. In regards to the colouring; we have been given the green light to import them. We are using a supplier in the US that are aware of the colouring issues therefore uses as minimal amount of additives.

So what is Sugar Swizzle Sticks? It is the product of the further refining by recrystallisation of pure cane sugar.  In fact, it is the purest form of sugar available, because all impurities are excluded as large crystals form.  Crystal growth is based on the particular characteristics of sugar (sucrose) chemistry, and cannot be done with the various “sugar free” substitutes found in the market.

What can you use Sugar Swizzle Sticks for? Swizzle Sticks have has a huge presence on the party and wedding scene in the US and around the world. Often they are used in candy buffets and dessert tables to compliment a particular colour theme. They can be eaten right off the stick, similar to a lollipop! Swizzle Sticks can also be used as a nice addition to your favourite cocktail or glass of champagne. Just add to your drink, stir and watch the magic happen!

Can we tempt you to try??
