Another fantastic year (2016) for Julie’s Candy Cart

                2016-05-21 16.42.10               


Thank you so much to all my clients, new and returning, for another successful year.

This year Julie’s Candy Cart has been to a variety of celebrations. The most popular celebrations that the candy carts have been to this year are weddings, closely followed by 50th birthday parties and anniversary parties. A Christening and a Holy Communion were also celebrated with the wee candy cart this year.

The Do-it-yourself candy stands, this year, have been more popular for children’s birthday parties, 21st birthday parties and halloween parties. A Christening was celebrated with the ferris wheel also this year.

My new wishing well made it’s first appearance later on in the year for a wedding. It made a lovely feature in  the wedding suite.

My free hire offer of a post box or wishing tree, with any candy cart booking made within 2 weeks of enquiring, is still very popular with brides. The post box has made many appearances this year and the wishing tree chosen on a couple of aoccasions.

Thanks again everyone and have a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy new year.

An Interview with Jo Lamonby of Cyprus Villa Lettings.

Nearly two years ago I was holiday shopping on   I was specifically looking for a villa with a private pool in Cyprus. I contacted half a dozen owners but one stood out for me,  Jo Lamonby. She was super efficient, helpful and bent over backwards to help us with all the information that we needed. This made all the difference to our booking and our holiday.

During our holiday, which was fantastic, it came to light that Joe was in the process of starting her own villa lettings company. We stayed in touch and have just run a competition together for a free week in her luxury villa in Pernera, Cyprus with added extras.
