Kids Paradise

Roll Up, Roll Up, the Eggnogg Colour-in Caravan is Coming to Town! Now, where was this creative dream during my childhood?

The cute vintage caravan was rescued by Eggnogg designer and founder Kate Edmunds, having been left, neglected and dilapidated, in a Brighton garden.  Lovingly restored, ‘Bertha’, as they fondly call her, is now a children’s artistic extravaganza, featuring colour-in wallpaper, table top, seating and even curtains.

If you’re looking for a fun and easy children’s party idea, then Eggnogg has the answer.  Their all new Colour-in Caravan comes complete with loads of washable pens so everyone can go colour-in crazy inside and out.
The party caravan package includes a colour-in picnic blanket and paper tablecloths to keep, plus a little picnic table and chairs, bunting and other decorations.  There are also optional extras like Eggnogg colour-in party bags, fancy dress outfits and personalised tablecloths, placemats and wallpaper. Oh, to be 6 again!

The caravan is small enough to be parked easily in most driveways, gardens and parks. It can be hired for the day or, for those who want the ultimate colour-in caravan sleep-over experience, there’s a two-day weekend package.

The Eggnogg Colour-in Caravan will be at lots of events this summer so keep an eye out for her!

So, as the four legged trend starts to soar, there isn’t a better time to get your paws on the best home accessories and gifts inspired by our favourite canine companions.

Christmas tree decorations….mainly baubles

As well as writing Christmas cards, which we genuinely love and find really therapeutic, we also love getting a Christmas tree, dragging it back home on the bus and then getting out all the ornaments from previous years and new ones we bought with great foresight in the January sales. Winning. Here are some of our faves from this year’s offerings.

Here After

We have written about the massive changes to the White City area a few times. It’s always interesting to see how areas that have been somewhat grimy and a little unloved get an update. This time designers Craig & Karl have playfully revived a derelict petrol station on Wood Lane in London’s White City to create HERE AFTER, a public and visually arresting art installation that riffs on the area’s importance to British broadcasting history.
