Bavarian Style 

October 2020

 

This month we are introduing our new business boxes. Personalise them with your logo or colour scheme. 

 

These are also perfect for restaurants.

Due to health and safety reasons, table decorations are currently not allowed in most settings. So, we have designed a compact, safe,  place setting box to  enhance your customers experience when booking a meal for an occasion or celebration. They are simple and would be taken home by the customer- leaving no mess or extra tidying up, which keeps the clean down after guests have left quick and easy. Another positive is that these boxes are collapsible, making them easy to store and then need minimal filling due to their small size. We can add a general tag or create a batch that is specific to an event. Contact us and we can begin to discuss  your custom order. 

A Clear Business Plan

September 2020

 

Our perspex signs have many uses.

They are great for weddings, engagements, birthdays, and many other occasions. Also, we can add a favourite quote or saying. 

If you run a business, we can create the perfect perspex sign. 

We use hand painted calligraphy techniques to add the lettering. A brushstroke effect background is created to bring the writing to life. 

We can add a realistic silk floral arrangement to the top of the sign, which looks stunning. 

We have easels available for purchase too,

so get in touch to discuss these further. 

Ribbon that is

100% Recycled

July 2020

 

This month we have sourced a sustainableand fully recycled ribbon. 

Amazingly, our ribbon is produced using waste clear PET plastic bottles. During the production process, the creation of virgin yarn is eliminated, meaning that no oil is extracted from the ground, which is needed to weave the ribbon. Plus, the plastic bottles have a useful second life rather than being put in landfill or the ocean. Solar powered manufacturing and the amount of CO2 emissions and greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere is also reduced during this recycling process.

90% of the water used in the maturing process is recycled. 

This sea blue ribbon makes it's debut in our 'Jewelled Oasis Collection', a gateway to warmer climates and rich textiles. And.... it ties the MOST luxurious bows. 

Joining Forces

 

 

June 2020

 

We launched our first Giveaway this month with our favourite girl at 'Tiger Lily Jewellery'. 

We created the gift wrap that the winner will receive their prize in. 

We are proud to join forces for this release and work with another Suffolk small business, supporting another powerful female and their dream.

Oh 2020...

 

May 2020

 

This year has thrown us all some incredibly difficult challenges. 

We created these 'Made with love, spread the kindest' boxes for friends and family.

 

Kindness is one of the most important value to have.  

Did someone say glittery carrots?

 

March 2020

 

Easter time brought a new collection and theme to our window display in Gaol Lane. 

We created hanging cherry blossom garlands and brightened up the window with colourful Egg bags. 

Our quirky nature shone brightly with our glittery carrot boxes. The range of ribbon textures stick out to make the perfect greenery. 

The Logo

 

December 2019

 

During December/early January we received our logo, created by amazing graphic designer, Emily Frith. 

We were over the moon, pun intended, with the logo. It is an incredible design and we are so delighted with it. 

The best start to our new business.

Banquet fit for a Bride

August 2020

We were delighted to decorate a pod in Stoke by Nayland for a pre-wedding celebration. 

Due to safety precautions, we were unable to decorate the table but instead created simple favour boxes for each guest to take home with them. We also made one of our gorgeous perspex signs for the bride which can also be used to decorate the church/ceremony room and reception. 

 

A beautiful keepsake. 

 

New Year,

New Collections

 

 

June 2020

 

With the upcoming (and very exciting) launch of our new website -eek! we have been developing, improving and enjoying the crafty time in our Art Studio, the epicentre of our creativeness and home to our designs. 

We have increased our Bridal party range, acted on feedback and broadened our Groomsmen Collection, AND introduced the personal collection: The Rosanna Range. 

Window Dressing...

 

 

June 2020

 

We took our favourite Rose Gold trend and created a limited edition collection, featuring butterflies and printed mandalas.

 

We loved dressing this Suffolk window front again...  

Workplace of Dreams 

 

April 2020

 

We have been planning and dreaming about what our new workspace could look like. 

So, whilst at home in April we started making it into a space to be creative - and to very proud of. It is an inspiring and VERY organised work space that we have fallen in love with. 

It represents our quirkiness and love of colour perfectly. 

We can't wait to get creative in our new studio!  

 

The Love Bug

February 2020

 

This month we have created a range of gift wrap to celebrate the month of love. 

 

We displayed this limited edition range in the window of J&W Hairdressers, Suffolk. 

We definitely have a love thing for this collection...

Mood boards and Sketches

 

November 2019

 

This month 'The Midnight Mouse' really 

began to take shape. 

November has been a month of visualising, 

creating, experimenting, designing and

critical thinking.  

We spent time in our favourite brunch 

spot in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, looking through our mood boards and recording 

annotations in a note pad. 

What an exciting month...

Wedding Debut

We showcased our products alongside many other business owners and creative people. 

There were wedding cakes towering to the left of our stand and the lovely girls at the Glitter Bar in front of us. 

An amazing day talking and planning with you all...

The Magical Midnight Hour

 

October 2019

 

We started our gift packaging adventure in October 2019 after creating table decorations for a fairytale-loving friends wedding meal. We planned the event and room inside one of our favourite rustic Inn locations in Suffolk.

 

 The design focused around the Cinderella tale, capturing the magic midnight hour with golden carriage gourds and book paper mice, which later inspired ‘The Midnight Mouse’ name. 

The late night atmosphere felt magical and wintery. Everyone was in high spirits and we felt as though we had created something truly special. That's how we want everyone to feel when receiving our packaging.
