Happy 5th Easter Birthday | Gift Baskets For Children

I was commissioned to make an ‘Angel’ Cake which was a proper angel cake, albeit it a chocolate version, with a proper little angel on top and little mallows-her favourite in the…

We got a lovely surprise yesterday when Sylwia called into the office with both her boys, and we got to meet lovely baby Antoni. It’s hard to believe he is almost 3 months old already! He seemed so tiny compared to my big 8 month old. When he was born we sent Sylwia and her family a beautiful baby gift basket, Sylwia deserved a truly special one after years of gift…

April 27, 2017

It only seems like a few days ago that I was typing out the Easter Delivery schedule, and now we are about to be treated to another day off for May Day. Yes it’s hard to believe, especially with the recent cold weather we’ve been experiencing (snow for goodness sake!) but on Monday we are into the month of May! The first Monday in May is known as May Day…

Wishing You Well, Mother’s Day Round Up

After reading Andrea’s “Flowering Gift Basket” blog of 21st April, I was thinking back to the old days and of all the flowers and plants that I had handled over the years. On Mother’s Day alone, this year I made up over 200 flowering plants for our gift baskets for mums going out in the space of 3 days.  It does have compensations, however, when there are a few plants…

BasketsGalore Baby Boom – In House & Beyond

April 20, 2017

I noticed Kate blogging yesterday about how she’ll soon be becoming an Auntie and it made me think how we’ve had a bit of a baby boom here at BasketsGalore in the last year. First of all my 2nd baby son, Theo, arrived 8 months ago in August, closely followed by Pawel’s baby girl, Julia. Then this year we had the arrival of Sylwia’s 2nd son, Antoni. At the minute we…

BasketsGalore Food Finding Fun At IFE 2017

April 3, 2017

Some of the team “forced” themselves to attend the International Food & Drink Event at ExCel in London a couple of weeks ago, while the rest of us held the fort back here in the lead up to Mother’s Day. We imagine it was a tough task taste testing potential new products to include in our Gift Baskets and Christmas Hampers, but somebody has to do it eh? The photography for…

Shape Up For Spring: Fruity Healthy Gift Baskets

March 29, 2017

Andrea and I are both trying to eat really healthily these days, her to loose the final bit of baby weight and me because I have been told that I am wheat intolerant.  It has really helped me to cope with the wheat-free diet knowing that Andrea is on a low carb diet which is even more restrictive than mine.  After all there are loads of gluten free foods on the…
