It’s so fun getting crafty at Christmas and at Sass & Belle we love a DIY or two! Homemade things always go down a treat and people appreciate the thought and effort that goes into a creation. This year we thought it would be super fun (and surprisingly easy) to make our Christmas crackers and we were right; it was both simple and more importantly enjoyable. Read on to learn how to achieve this and simple and effective craft idea which will brighten up the table.
During the summer we had some beautiful origami cranes taking pride of place in our Sass & Belle store windows. Made from our delightful wrapping paper (which you can buy here), they proved to be very popular with customers and passers-by! We had people bartering, buying and begging us to show them how to make these beautiful decorations. Here we have a step-by-step video showing how easy they are to make.
Halloween is nearly upon! We adore the spooky festivities and in honour of the celebration we got a little crafty with some pumpkins. While we love the tradition of carving a pumpkin, we thought we’d mix things up this year. Let’s just say we challenged ourselves to make Halloween pretty, and we think we succeeded!
Today is Environment Day and to celebrate we are sharing with you our words of wisdom on growing your own herbs.

We also love herbs and think the addition of treats such as parsley and dill can transform a recipe. Not only is it lovely to grown your own, it helps saves the environment by reducing the transportation of pre-made herbs and thus your carbon footprint becomes that bit lighter. Follow our ‘how to’ and get your hands nice and grubby and green…
