We're bursting full of festive cheer in the Superette studio and to celebrate our adoration for candy canes we've made the cutest fun freebie! Oh yes, order anything from our website from now until midnight 20th December and we'll pop a super little candy cane brooch in for free. It's just the perfect little thing to pin to your cardigan on Christmas morning when you open all your presents... Merry Christmas!
It was our Pop-Up Christmas Tea Party at the BUST Magazine Christmas Craftacular a few days ago and my-oh-my what a full on festive time was had by all! Our cute troupe of waitresses for the day were Patricia, Caity, Ailsa, Claire and Laura.
The Craftacular lived up to its legendary reputation as *the* busiest craft fair we've ever seen as hundreds of excited shoppers streamed through the doors at midday. The empty seats in our tea shoppe were filled in an instant and our first 50 customers popped their complimentary crackers and tucked into our new menu of homemade festive fancies.
The menu included our two Tea Shoppe favourites vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream or chocolate frosting and a victoria sandwich (this time baked in a cute heart shape). Our Christmas Specials included red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, ginger cupcakes with ginger buttercream, yule logs, star mince pies and gingerbread cookies. We also introduced - Dip'n'Sip, a hot chocolate served with pink and white cocktail marshmallows! Yum!
Everything was served up on a beautiful array of vintage crockery but unfortunately we had our first ever breakage! In fact we're now 3 teacups and a tea plate down, oops.
We dedicated one of our tables to decorating your own gingerbread! I baked about 200 cookies using my friend Jeanne's secret recipe (which took over 2 years and numerous cocktails to prise out of her) and shaped them with my friend Kali's vintage collection of cookie cutters.
We were delighted to find the Broken Hearts DJ-ing in their too-cute-for-words matching outfits, telephone receiver "headphones" and a vintage festive playlist to die for. I only wish their set lasted the whole day!
Each tasty treat was topped off with a rockin' robin drawn by Lady Luck's Leah Stewart. Tweet, tweet.
I won't tell a lie and tell you all it was plain sailing... with only an hour and a half to set up an entire tea shoppe we were kinda higgledy-piggledy at the start and then we had pesky urn troubles, eek. But after this we settled into the swing of it and we all worked our lil' socks off for our delightful customers. We hope everyone enjoyed it as much as we did! Merry Christmas! x
It's here! Our famous Swag Bags are back! We've been feverishly making lots of jewellery for our festive bags o'fun and instead of making you wait til January we've launched them in time for Christmas. Woo-hoo. They're bursting full with heartpoppin' surprises - you're guaranteed £100 worth of handmade jewellery and fun accessories, including handpicked goodies from our Love Token golden charm collection and cute treats you've not seen on the website before. Our fun filled swag bags are always a popular bargain, and they sell out quickly so snap one up and it will be delivered in time for Christmas!
24 hours after launch and we're sending out hundreds of fun filled parcels, we took this quick snap before bagging them up for collection today. We really don't have many Stocking Filler Swag Bags left so snap one up before it's too late! Everyone in the studio has worked their little socks off today not only packing all these orders but also prepping for our Pop-Up Christmas Tea Shoppe at the Craftacular this Saturday. We've assembled a bunch of Lady Luck Rules OK sparkle pop crackers filled with surprises which will be free for our first 50 customers! I'm off home now to receive my ingredients delivery and an evening of dough making. See you at the Craftacular!
