A little catch up

It's been a gorgeous summer so far here in the UK, plenty of sunshine, trips to the park and a few too many ice creams. Here is a little catch up of the fun stuff.

A college friends beautiful wedding

 Birthday cakes

 The yummy top one made for Suzie and I by Sarah... eaten at work.
The interesting bottom one made and then eaten by my boys!

I had a wonderfully indulgent birthday, a massage followed by breakfast at the Lido. Then I mooched by myself around Clifton, it was such a treat being able to go into all the tiny pretty fragile shops that I normally have to avoid with the double buggy. I treated myself to 2 wooden stools for our studio/spare room that we are in the middle of decorating (now I just need a desk!)

The boys being all cultural at the The Time Newseum, Paint Works!

I hope you are all having a lovely summer also.

Room Tour // Chloes Room

 We bring you a very special room tour today, because Chloe's Room, which features Belle & Boo, won Instagram Room of the Week for Home Beautiful Australia Magazine!

And we can see why Chloe's room won! Her mum, Katherine, has styled the room so beautifully. We love the colours and the seamless blend of old and new style. Chloe's art collection includes our 'Shall We Skate' art print (pictured here in 10x10, but now only available in a 7x9) and 'Found'.

You can email us photos to this address, or tag us on instagram using the hashtag #belleandboo

Love, Clare

Be Inspired By Fabric // Baby Boys Outfit

Our heart raced a little when we saw this gorgeous baby boy outfit on Instagram. 
Using the My Paper Plane fabric (sold exclusively in Australia and New Zealand at Spotlight stores), Sarah made this lovely outfit to gift at a baby shower. The matching bow on the teddy is just too cute.

Christmas in July

While we're basking in the sunshine it's hard to imagine the dark, cozy, snowy days that winter and Christmas will bring. But we are so excited about some new Christmas products we have just got pictures of we couldn't help but share them!

Our lovely licensee Elite Gift Boxes will be bringing out some gorgeous new designs of Christmas tins. Here's a sneak peek!

After the wonderful success of our Easter charity downloadable PDF, we will be doing a Christmas themed charity download. Based on this picture, can you guess what it will be?

Love, Clare
