My little boy turned one on Sunday so we threw a little party for him. Egg and bacon rolls on the bbq, home grown tomatoes and basil, fresh flowers and lots and lots of cake. Our little Circus range was perfect- especially the kids’ treat bags.
Happy birthday little Rory. Hope you had a great day. x
Here are a couple of posts we have picked up on recently with our lovely cup cake papers.

Here are some very rough and blurry photos of our lovely trade fair stand. I apologise for the quality- wasn’t much light during set-up. Thank you to all our customers who visited us at the fair, and made February 2012 one of the best yet. If you have any questions about the product in the pics, please let me know. - Kate.
