Wonderland wedding – sneak peaks!

alice in wonderland name cards for a mad hatter wedding

We just had news and some sneak pictures of a lovely Alice in Wonderland wedding where we’d supplied these cute Alice in Wonderland place cards to add to bride Jane’s other wonderful Alice themed goodies.

Alice in Wonderland continues to be a popular wedding and hen party choice for people wanting to combine this gorgeous look with a unique, quirky and fun style.  Who can blame them with effects like these???

These wonderful Alice in Wonderland cupcakes were all made by the brides best friend’s sister – wow!

Playing cards and mirrors add to the Alice illusion along with our place cards and eat-me goodies! We also included table numbers and flowers at our Lulworth Castle exhibit.

Marks & Spencer Mad Hatter Tea Party

This wasn’t just any party – this was a Marks and Spencer Mad Hatter Tea Party!

Try-Me hat

Its not very often that we get asked to help retail giants with their marketing and promotions – but when Marks & Spencer got in touch to say they were hosting a Mad Hatter Tea Party for fashion bloggers showcasing their new range of accessories for autumn we were more than a little curious!

eat me drink me labelsFor this last-minute order we designed a new selection of our popular parchment style eat-me drink-me labels to provide party tags that would match the eat-me drink-me ones – touch-me, try-me and take-me. All of our parchment-style labels are hand-made so we had to work quickly to get everything off in the post.

Together with our Mad Hatter’s Hat we sent the huge parcel signed-for next day delivery – but Royal Mail was still late! Groan! Thankfully we left an extra day for emergencies so were very relieved when we heard the package had arrived on the morning of the party! We like getting testimonials from M&S!

“We are all really pleased with the outcome of the event, thank you so much for all your help”

We couldn’t wait to find the pictures of this press party to see how it all went – and it wasn’t very long before twitter started chattering about the #mandsteaparty held at Kettners

Sheepskin Gloves touch me label

Huge thanks to bloggers Blah-blah-becky, Lelalondon and Fabfrocks for these great pictures – M&S have moved on from frumpy Bridget Jones style pants! Who would have thought they’d be dreaming up themes like Nordic Narnia, Boy Meets Girl, Global Traveller and Wilderness including Doctor’s bags, faux fur, smart bags and shoes, sparkly jewellery and gorgeous soft gloves.
