Be Inspired By Fabric // Ava’s Home


Larissa, from the blog Stitching Notes, has made a wonderful “Take Along Play Set” featuring Ava from our Ava & Friends Fabric
The inspiration was to create a home for a little ‘Ava’ doll, who already had a tiny bed and blankets. 
From that she has made this little bag, that opens up to be Ava’s home, featuring little pocket “Bedrooms”, and a darling little “garden”.  

 To read more about Larissa’s project, head over to her blog.

Room Tour – Cecily’s Room

We bring a bright and dreamy nursery to you this week! Little Ceily’s nursery has a pretty hot air balloons theme, featuring our Hot Air Balloons wall stickers along side some lovely balloon blinds and light shade. 
The mobile hanging above Ceily’s cot was hand-made for her by her mum, Penny.  The instructions to make your own hot air balloon mobile can be found in The Belle & Boo Book of Craft.

If you have a Belle and Boo inspired room in your home, then we would love to see it. Send us your photos to hello@belleandboo.com

Uses for a Wooden Boo!

The Wooden Boo brooch and matching decoration have always been favourite and much loved products amongst all of us here at Belle & Boo HQ.

We get very excited when we see how people get creative with our products so we thought we would show you this little round up of beautiful cakes that use our Boo brooch/decoration as a cake topper!

I wish I could have a slice of each of these cakes. They all look so gorgeous and tasty! 
If you’ve baked a yummy Belle & Boo cake or done something out of the box with one of our products then we’d love to see! You can email us here or tag us on instagram using the hashtag #belleandboo.

Another Beautiful Wedding

When a dear friend told me she was getting married in 3 months time in a reclamation/scrap yard I did have my reservations, but knowing her I knew she could pull it together and didn’t she just. It was a magical day & night of fairy lights, tight rope walkers, popcorn, polaroid prints, homemade cupcakes, cocktails, tee-pees and above all friendship.

The next day we had a lovely 
time at Tyntesfield House exporing the sculptural installations.

Love
