Here's to...

Happy New Year!

We'd like to start 2014 with a huge THANK YOU to all the clients, friends and family who have supported us over our first year.  We have had a fantastic time, and couldn't have done it without you all.

It's been a bit quiet on here for a few months, partly because I'm very bad at remembering to update, and partly because we've had a rather tumultuous time.  One of the events we provided food for was the funeral of my poor old father-in-law, so things have been a bit sad and busy as a result of all the attendant paperwork.  However, it was a comfort to know that on such a solemn day we were able to provide a lovely tea, and (I hope) one which he would have enjoyed himself.

We held it in the village hall, which is a beautiful old-fashioned venue, and it perfectly suited the event.The village hall has seen a fair few parties over the last 12 months, and I hope we are at a lot more, either catering or partying. Or both.

Other events have included a few parties over the Christmas season, mostly canap├ęs and sweet bites, which are great fun to do.  We took part in the pre-Christmas East Knoyle Fair, the first time that has taken place.  Several small businesses in East Knoyle got together and decided that it would be a good idea to hold a Christmas shopping event over a weekend, and we were invited to take up some space in the excellent Valley Forge showroom.  It was eclectic, a mixture of mulled wine, cakes, preserves and gorgeous hand-made ironmongery, but it seemed to work.







I particularly like the Iron Angel there.

Here are a few pictures taken whilst we were preparing for one of the canape parties:






I do like the massive trays of spicy chicken cakes and sesame honey sausages.  The Cheshire cheese/Christmas Cake cubes were a success, once people got used to the idea.

So, here's to a happy, peaceful and prosperous New Year to you all, and I hope everyone has lots of parties.
