Straw Bales 

Choose to have one or two dotted around to add to the atmosphere, or dress with blankets and use as seating for your ceremony or in your marquee.

A lovely selection of signs and boards to help share information with your guests about where to go or what to do during your big day.

Box of Blankets 

nannies in blankets

A stack of warm blankets can be a welcome thing on a summer’s evening. Wrap up warm as you toast marshmallows over a fire, or tuck young-ones up when its time for bed. Add them to hay bales for great seats or to the grass for a picnic lunch. Also great for wrapping up your nanny!

Our collection is forever growing and we are always willing to add to it, so if there is something you would like that isn’t listed, let us know as we might find just the thing tucked away in the attic, or we might be able to make it!
