In the window: What's the Buzz?

So, you'd be forgiven for thinking the windows might be a little dusty around here.

Truth is we've been busier than ever filling the store with new releases and old favourites and would love for you to press your nose up against the glass and take a look - we promise not to make you sneeze!

This week we're buzzing with excitement over the arrival of these adorable new invitations from Alannah Rose Exclusive Stationery.

The humble bumble bee has been elevated to new heights of garden party stardom in recent times and we have spotted some beautiful, creative parties inspired by this little guy in his handsome striped suit.

This fun theme would work perfectly for a sweet baby shower, naming day / christening celebration or of course a birthday for either boys or girls and of any age.

Style it up with an (obvious!) colour palette of classic black and canary yellow

or twist it up a little with a softer, more modern mix of lemon, white and grey. So in love with this colour combination right now - bees or no bees!

This Buzz Buzz Bee also has a new Lovely Ladybird friend - ain't she a cutie?

Pop by later to catch up with the very clever Suzi from Alannah Rose Exclusive Stationery in our very first Hip Host interview - you'll love the tips (and recipe!) she has to share with us.
