We haven't been able to keep our hands off these cuddly companions since
they arrived at head office!
These adorable animals are made by the prestigious toy company, Jellycat and are beautifully made to the highest standard using super soft plush.
The bouncing bunnies come in two sizes. The medium bunnies are at £15.00 and the small bunnies are only £10.00.
These sweet Small Bashful Bunnies have a vintage floral pattern on their ears and paws, and would make a lovely present for a new-born (although really, we just want to take one home for ourselves!)
We also have a few forest animals, who have fantastically furry tails. From the hedgehog to the auburn fox, they have all been designed with cute curious expressions on their little faces.
Jellycats dog designs are incredibly popular with children who have been nagging their parents for a puppy, alongside a more traditional baby-shower gift of a little lamb.

Orla Kiely Sweetpea

Our Orla Kiely range has perked up from the navys, browns and mustard yellows of the Autumn/Winter range to pale pinks, olive and apple greens of Kiely's new Spring/Summer 2013 collection.

The new Orla Kiely Sweetpea range is fun, bright and features a playful take on Orla Kiely's iconic stem design. All designs come in this beautifully bright 'Apple' colour and 'Multi' which features subtle tones from pink to chestnut.

The Sweetpea Double Zip Pouch has two handy zipped compartments, a popper closure and plenty of space for all your cards. It also has 100% leather trims and a lovely matt laminate finish. This fun and functional purse is only £55.00.

The Big Zip Wallet is a classic Orla Kiely design and we think that this Spring/Summer print is perfect for it. It's laminated with olive nylon twill lining, zip closure and comes with several handy compartments.

Another classic design (and our customers' favourite) is the Orla Kiely Midi-Sling Bag and Classic Shoulder Bag. We love the contrast of the bold brown strap against the apple green print and the colours couldn't be more perfect for spring. Both prints and designs are available for just £125.00.

Toot Sweet!

How amazing is this cake table from our Web Manager's wedding?! The theme was a Village Fete, and to add a personal touch, everyone was asked to bring a home-baked cake to the reception after the wedding.

With guests baking delicious coffee cakes, all kinds of fairy cakes and an incredible home-made battenberg, they needed something as stunning as their baking skills to display them on! The Toot Sweet range from Meri Meri party decorations, featuring the super cute Ferris Wheel centre piece and Mini Pinwheel Toppers, really brought the whole table together.

From polka dot cup-cake wrappers,  to the retro inspired sweet cones and ice-cream cups, all these splendid decorations are under £20.00.

The most stand-out piece from this collection has to be this striking Ferris Wheel centre-piece, which holds cupcakes and actually spins around!

We also love the old-school Helter-Skelter which we think would be great fun for a children's Birthday party too.

Whatever the occassion, this Toot Sweet range are bound to add colour and excitement to any party table.

All are available now on
