Finishing Touches

Hello from Ashby de la Zouch, I haven’t posted a blog for quite a while, well to be honest nearly a year, so with a little persuasion, badgering and a swift kick it is time to sort it out, so where do I start … I have read the guides to successful blogging, I have even done a few drafts of what I want to say, I have shown them to friends and family, so why haven’t they hit this page sooner … to be honest there is no logical answer to this question other than my love of all things sweet probably got in the way, sticky fingers and keyboards can be a problem. So here goes, bear with and all that this week’s blog title is …. Finishing Touches. So the Chief Sweet Taster that is me, has a little passion for ribbon, tissue and wrapping paper there is nothing better than a parcel arriving on your doorstep that has been packed with crisp tissue paper and held together with ribbon … it’s like opening a present to yourself and that is where I started, with a dress I had ordered online, arriving in a gorgeous brown box lined with tissue and finished with a ribbon … the dress by now was insignificant! My thoughts then turned to my own website www.ashbytreats.com and how we present our own sweet treats … so I invested time in ensuring that whenever or whatever you buy from our online store you can be confident that your treats will arrive in a brown box, tissue lined with your goodies packed in individual stripped paper bags, suspended in wood wool and most of all the tissue folded over and held with one of our lovely Sweet Memory Lane stickers, we also pop in a little note that tells you which one of the Sweetie Team has packed your order too … I call these the finishing touches and it’s not only online that you get this service we offer it in our lovely little sweet shop Sweet Memory Lane, just of Market Street, Ashby de la Zouch in the heart of the National Forest. If you are buying something extra special from our website as a gift you can also tick to have your purchase beautifully gift wrapped as you check out from www.ashbytreats.com … our gift wrapping service uses beautiful quality wrapping paper selected for the season or occasion and finished with beautiful ribbon … if you are visiting us at Sweet Memory Lane you can chose from our lovely selection of wrapping papers yourself and the team would be delighted to wrap your gift in store. Bye for now from The Chief Sweet Taster and her team always open at...
