  • Budget Ideas For Children’s Parties

    It seems there’s great pressure on parents these days to make parties for their children extra-special. Social media bragging and boasting at the school gate have raised the bar and now it’s not unusual to find your 10 year old getting invites from anything like pamper parties at the local salon, through to miniature pony rides or a disco complete with DJ, pyrotechnics and top of the range party food.  Continue reading

  • Wedding Gift Etiquette

    According to The Knot, which is a popular wedding planning website, you should be spending anywhere from $75-$100 on a wedding gift for a co-worker, distant friend, or even acquaintance. For close friends and family, a wedding gift should be anywhere from $100-$125.

    Based on a study, The Knot concluded that on average friends spend about $79 on a wedding present for the bride and groom. While all of this data is important to consider, at the end of the day, you should really spend the amount that you feel is most appropriate given not only your relationship to the bride and groom, but also your financial situation.

  • The History Of Wedding Favours


    It’s part of a long-established tradition. The wedding table, in all its finery, always contains a little gift for the guests.


    But what is a wedding favour really for?

    As UK suppliers of wedding favours, we’ve seen over the years how a wedding favour can personalise a place setting, and liven up a table, as well as providing a lovely memento of your special day. They’re a way for the bride and groom to thank their guests for sharing such a special day – and many years ago, when people were more superstitious, they were regarded as a symbol of good luck. People reasoned that if they shared their luck with others, they would share their luck with them.

    All very good reasons to include favours in your wedding – but what about its origins?

    One trend that has been ‘hot’ for a while, is the vintage-style wedding. Partly because it’s timeless, and partly because, in times of unrest, we hanker back to ‘the good old days’, when things were simpler and prettier and (seemingly) less hassle.

    To create a vintage wedding, it needs a sense of style – so here are our top tips to pull it all together.
