We’re already at the end of April everyone and there is just over a month to go before Euro 2012 fever and the Jubilee finally arrives. We’ve been looking forward to the village street party for months now and as spring is well underway we’re trying to think of other gatherings to have – just to use some of our beautiful Village Fete themed partyware. We love the chip cones and helter skelter inspired cake stand in particular.

We’re also delighted to announce the arrival of Sir Bakealot and the Fluttercup Fairies – they’ve created quite a stir since they arrived as they keep having ‘bake-offs’ in the Party Ark kitchen and making a terrible mess! These ranges are all about having fun in the kitchen with your little ones – perfect for our Party Ark friends and extended family.

Finally, Pretty Ballerina has pirouetted into Party Ark – what a beautiful theme for your little dancers birthday party. All the usual partyware is available with the addition of this stunning centrepiece (which we bet will end up in the birthday girls bedroom afterwards), treat holders and ice-cream bowls. There’s even a ballet slipper piñata to complete the look.

Our 10% off April Voucher has to end in a couple of days – you’ll need code E442. Any queries, questions, problems or ideas: we’re here during office hours on 01572 748 609.

So, how are the Easter holidays going? Has all the chocolate been eaten already or is it still cluttering up the fridge and calling to you every time you open the door!?

If you do have lots left over, you could always melt it down for use as cake toppings – we have a fantastic new range for baking parties and general baking products to help your home-made cakes look truly beautiful. Take a look at our stylish cake tins, packs to wrap your cupcakes and loaf cakes and a larger range of our ever popular cake boxes.

It’s St Georges Day at the end of this month (23rd) – if you’re not sure of what is happening in your area to mark it, this St George’s Holiday website is jolly useful. If you’re planning a celebration for St Georges Day (or getting very organised for Euro 2012) we have all you need for a patriotic party.

St George, you’ll be pleased to know, is one of the fourteen holy helpers (according to the Roman Catholic church) and particularly effective at keeping domestic animals healthy. Of course he’s most famous for fighting the plague-ridden dragon and saving the princess. "According to legend" after wounding the dragon he persuaded the princess to toss her girdle around it, and the formerly-fierce dragon meekly toddled after them both. They took it to the nearest town, Silene, where George told the locals he would kill it if they converted to Christianity, which they did. There is a spring there now which cures all diseases. We’re pretty sure the legend is true, it’s not something you’d make up.

In honour of St George and his bravery we’re now running 10% off all our St George inspired party ware, you’ll need code E442. Any queries, questions, problems or ideas: we’re here during office hours on 01572 748 609.

We’re not sure whether the weather is coming or going, but we’ve certainly enjoyed the daffodils that are having a bumper year around Harringworth. Of course Easter is a very busy time for us – we’ve just had an order from a vicar who wanted some foam swords for his Easter re-enactment next weekend, for the Romans we’re guessing. There’s still time to get some last minute decorations and activities.

You may not have noticed, but last Sunday was New Year (old style). Until 1752 the year changed at the end of March on Lady Day, more or less the time of the Spring Equinox. We think this is a much better time for new year, but suspect it’s probably too late to change back now.

The old-style March new year was one of the four Quarter Days, the others being Midsummer, Michaelmas and Christmas. Apparently these are the traditional days for hiring servants so if you missed last week you’ll have to wait until midsummer.

This week is also the 969th anniversary of the crowning of Edward the Confessor, the Cornish-pasty loving king whom you will remember left the country in such a state that we were quickly overrun by French Vikings with peculiar haircuts. If you fancy a rerun of the Battle of Hastings you’ll find plenty of hats, swords, and accessories in our historical dressing up ranges.

For the Easter holidays we’re running a free postage offer for UK orders, equivalent to Royal Mail 1st Class. You should find a box to put in the discount code on the basket page and if you type in E441 it should all magically work. Any queries, questions, problems or ideas: we’re here during office hours on 01572 748 609.
