Lovely Little Letchworth

The Little Green Family Show, at the lovely old Brotherhood Hall in Letchworth Garden City yesterday, was a really super event. It was hosted by NapNap (Environmental Nappies), run by the wonderful Rebecca Leek. There were all sorts of interesting stalls there, with a "green" theme prevailing, tying in with Letchworth being a "Transition" town. I confess I had little chance to look at them properly as I was out the back washing up vintage tea cups most of the time (with Ecover of course)! The Buns & Bunting girls were all kept pretty busy and the event had a real buzz. I guess re-using (recycling?) vintage china and home making all our cakes (organic eggs; fair trade chocolate; no additives) makes us pretty green too.

Over the next few weeks we are working on a few really lovely and spectacular private parties. But keep checking back for news of furture public events: there will be more on their way soon!

Blue Skies... smiling at me...

After all the excitement of the Royal Wedding, it seemed the perfect thing to do to carry on eating cake and hanging up bunting. Which is exactly what we did yesterday at the glorious "Ye Olde May Day" festival at the First Garden City Museum in Letchworth Garden City. Under the sparkling blue sky, the museum garden was again transformed, and together with May Queens, Jack of the Greens and some Morris Dancers (who certainly earned their cake!) people came and went amongst the bluebells and lilacs to to enjoy a cup of tea from vintage cups and eat ravishing home-made cakes from bone china plates. The tables were decorated with wildflowers in jam jars on chinzy vintage table-cloths and the trees were strewn with our trademark bunting...

We are immensly grateful to the museum for hosting the event and supporting us and toeveryone who came. It was lovely to see so many people - over a hundred - enjoying the little known, almost Secret Garden of the museum on such an incredible day. Spirits were high, and the Buns and Bunting girls were run off their feet delivering trays laded with retro delights to the happy customers. It really feels as though the summer has begun!
