Fourth of July Party Inspiration

16 Jun

With Independence day just around the corner and many celebrations being planned in the sunny UK (?!) I thought I would put together a little party inspiration board.

As you may be aware we gain a lot of inspiration from US parties. In the UK we definitely know how to have fun and throw a good bash, but dare I say it the US just seem to do it loud and proud. If you don’t agree just take a moment to look at a couple of US based party websites including the wonderful 100 layer cake and Hostess with the Mostess. Amazing, huh?

We have some fab US based suppliers who supply most of our party products including our wooden utensils, tissue decorations and sugar swizzle sticks. In celebration of Fourth of July we have put together a little mood board of some of our favourite products.

For more party decorations and inspiration you can check out our special Fourth of July party page. However you choose to celebrate we hope you have a sun and fun filled day of celebration.

Mini Photo Shoot

16 Apr

Evening all, hope everyone has had a smashing day and caught a little glimpse of the sunshine! Today I have been busy doing a mini photo shoot of some of our new products. As a small business I can’t always afford a photographer to take glamouros photos of my products (hopefully in the future though…!).

I have picked up some great lighting and editing tips from online tutorials. LOVE an online tutorial! Please don’t take this as some sort of boast about my photos ~ just check out my product images on my site (I have a looooong way to go!!). But I actually really enjoy photography.

This is going to make me sound so old (eek!) but in high school I decided to study graphic design, art history and photography much to my parents dismay. I spent many an hour whittling away the hours in the school dark room. How I loved immersing the paper into the developer and slowly watch my image appear. When I moved to London over 10 years ago my dad lent me his old SLR camera which I swear takes better photographs than any digital I have owned. The photos from a Middle East voyage seemed to glitter and gleam with the amazing sunlight.

Anyway, here is a little snapshot of some of the banner images I created today. Let me know what you think of them!

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??
