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...

Gift wrapping course in Ashby proves popular

As you may have read on our Facebook page, we’re delighted that the fabulous Jane Means has agreed to hold two Gift Wrapping Workshops for us on Thursday 25 June. For those of you who may not be familiar with Jane’s work, she is renowned for her beautiful wrapping, holding courses across the globe and appearing on national TV.  She even has a book and DVD to take you step by step through the process, as well as her own online store, where you will find all manner of stunning paper, ribbons and wrapping accessories. If you look at your pile of wrapped Christmas presents under the tree in December and sadly realise that it looks more like a jumble sale than a photo straight from the pages of good Housekeeping, then this course is for you! For only £45pp, Jane herself will teach you the art of gift wrapping, before letting you loose with the paper, scissors and ribbon – round tins of sweets will never be a problem again!  And of course we’ll keep you fortified with fresh coffee and scrummy home-baked cookies. Places are quickly being booked up, so if you’d like to come along, get in...
