In the fruits blog today, I finished the piece talking about ribbons. So let's start this piece with the same thing to keep it flowing!
This time, it's a Mummy, Daddy and Me Celebration - Baby Girl basket, with a really pretty Congratulations ribbon. I think the ribbon further enhances the sweetness of a baby basket. It really suits them to a 'T'! I hope the recipients, Fergal (Raheny, IE) likes them too. I know if I receive one, I'd want to keep the ribbon part. Not sure what I'll do with it, but it's too lovely to throw away.
Next, we have two birthday baskets making a scene in our warehouse today because of how great they look. The first is a Birthday Party basket.
Ordered by Nympha (Ennis, IE) and heading off for delivery to Carmel (Kilmihil, IE) tomorrow to celebrate her birthday, this birthday party is the perfect gift to surprise anybody with. It even has birthday candles and a cake in it already so you have no excuse not to celebrate now!
The other birthday basket is for Eve (Bridgnorth, UK).
There seems to be a bit of a story behind this Champagne 18th, 21st or 30th Birthday basket as well. From the gift message, we could deduce that this is a late birthday present, but it wasn't by choice. Rather, the sender's original gift for Eve had not arrived in time for her birthday because it got stuck in Customs - the sender was from the US. As somebody who had recently experienced the same thing (except the other way round, I was sending a birthday gift to a friend in US), I can understand how aggravating it feels because it seems like something completely beyond your control. I've learnt my lesson now. Order something from somewhere local to the delivery address! Like from us, if you're sending to the UK!
