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. 

Love Clare

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
Mandy

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.

love
Mandy

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'.
