Belle and Boo Partyware
It was several years ago that my husband introduced me to the work of Mandy Sutcliffe, the artist behind Belle & Boo. He went to art college with Mandy and bought our daughter, Una, 2 of the her books; Night Ride to Nanna’s and Evie’s Seaside Lullaby. Both of these books, have remained firm favourites. I think this is because they so vividly mirror stories from Una’s own young life; the drive to her beloved Granny North’s house and when her little brother was born.
Belle & Boo are two of Mandy’s favourite characters. Belle in her vintage clothes with bobbed hair and her best friend the adorable rabbit, Boo are charmingly nostalgic. Mandy’s deceptively simple, clean illustrative style captures these precious, vivid moments of childhood friendship.
This spring Belle & Boo have launched a range of partyware, including invitations, a birthday banner, cups, plates, napkins, cake frill and cup-cake wraps, a pin the tale on the donkey game and my favourite a treat donkey and cart. We are so excited to be selling them!
And it has given Mrs Fox the opportunity to include a few other items from the Belle and Boo range. Take a look at the beautiful paper Belle dress up doll and the badge’s, perfect for party bags.
Oh, and due out in May is Mandy’s next book, Belle & Boo and the Birthday Surprise... there is a pattern forming here!
