A very Vintage Valentines

Looking for ways of celebrating valentines day.  We love the vintage trend and have been inspired by all things vintage for the past six years so we thought we’d write our little blog with a wave of a hat to the vintage old days
We all love receiving cards and gifts.  We love these Victoria valentines cards and using the photo as a base it would be great to create a larger card with lace and fabric.
wedding  day memories on valentines day
A time to think about popping the question, or to remember your engagement, wedding day or anniversary.
We think this cake is romantic too
A day never to forget.  A time to show your love on Valentines Day to the one you love or hope to love.

Vintage Rose Catering

Our heart shaped cake can be iced or topped with fresh raspberries which look lovely and we box and tie up with ribbon and gift tag with your chosen words or poetry.

An afternoon tea

An indulgent way to pop the question see our afternoon tea page

Red is the colour of love and our deep red cake filled with frosting is luscious and divine.  Red velvet is the proper title for this cake

We  love taking out valentines gifts, baking with love and delivering goodies, bringing a special gift tag with romantic verses. We can even take flowers with cake if requested.

New Year Countdown

It will soon be New year’s eve and another chance to celebrate.  A chance to welcome in the new year – 2014, so get our your little black dress and don your party gear and invite all your friends to the last bash of this year.

You need to think about the music, decorations, drinks and party food.

We think  canapes, buffets and finger foods which are easily eaten and allow your guests to carry on talking and drinking without getting stuck into a three course are an ideal option for new years eve and are ideal foods that can be eaten on the go as often there is not enough seating for all on the evening.

   Canapes at Chatsworth House    Tasty sausage rolls

Canapes at Chatsworth House

Our buffets offer a wide range of canapes and cold buffet style catering all freshly created for your special occasion, allowing you to see in 2014 in style and without any cooking in the kitchen beforehand.  Try our mix and match finger foods like a few of the following
