Amelia's Cafe


We have been having a lot of fun lately playing shop, well cafe's to be precise. A little while ago Kate took her eldest daughter for a hot chocolate locally and stumbled across Amelias' Coffee Shop. She got chatting with the owner Martin about Belle & Boo-ing the children's corner and this is the end result.....



I think you'll agree it is very sweet, so please drop in if you are in the area and take a look.

AMELIA'S COFFEE SHOP
115 Coldharbour Rd, Bristol, BS67SD

Instagram Favourites




And on the slightly gloomy Friday, we leave you with these lovely photos from the #belleandboo search on Instagram.

I adore how mandybollegraf has personalised the Balloon's postcard with the birthday girls name!

Thanks to our lovely customers and suppliers for posting them.

A Week in Devon




We just got back from a wonderfully relaxing week in Devon. We are lucky enough to have friends that have a beautiful house in Instow just minutes from the beach and whilst they were lying on the beach in the Seychelles (let's not dwell on that bit!) we made the most of what North Devon has to offer. The weather was lovely, we had good friends come and stay both weekends and the boys loved dune jumping, The big Sheep and Atlantis where at times they were the only children on the rides so we felt a little like celebrities!


Love

Brand Licensing Europe - 2014

It's that time of year again for another trade show! 


We're currently at Brand Licensing Europe, at Kensington Olympia. If you're attending the event, then please pop by and say hello. We're upstairs on stand J42! 

We're so pleased with our stand. It's similar to last year, with a few little changes. 
The theme is Belle & Boo's garden and it's got lots of lovely little details on it. Here's some pictures!

We've got so much new product and sneak peeks on the stand that you might notice. We hope to roll out some more information on these over the next few weeks. 

We hope you love it as much as we do!
Love,
Clare

Spooky Halloween Wall Stickers

We're big halloween fans here at Belle & Boo HQ, so we wanted to design something wonderful to add to our Halloween collection.

And here's our end product! Wall stickers!


They come in 2 designs, 1 of Belle & Boo and their little cat friend and the other of Ellis & Easy.
Each sticker pack comes with 48 stickers, so you can have fun adding the Halloween dress up outfits to the characters as well as 'carving' your own creepy pumpkin faces (but without the gunky mess!) for the pumpkin patch.  The two designs come in the same size, so you can buy both and mix and make a bit scene if you fancy.


As with all of our wall stickers, they are removable and reuseable. Just be sure to keep the backing sheet they come on and store them in a safe place and you can use them again year after year.

Fancy Food


I feel like there's not much that can be said about the above biscuits/cookies. They just need to be admired!

When I first spotted them on @yuliadubova's Instagram I was utterly speechless and there was lots of debate in the office about how they were made. Were they printed? Hand painted? Moulded?  Turns out they were hand painted by a very talented baker for a 5 year old birthday party. What a lucky 5 year old! 

Here's some more stunning pictures of the cookies and the party.

Bookshelf Makeover

Our  customer, Anjana got crafty when giving her daughters bookshelf a makeover.

She painted and collaged this pine shelf into a masterpiece! Can you spot Belle and Boo on the top shelf? She cut out the characters from our First Meet greeting card and I have to say I think they look very at home amongst the hot air balloons and mushrooms!
