The finished product. 2 jars for the couples, 1 jar for the singles, custom labelling and hand made custom packaging.
Congratulations to Krystle & Ben who were married last weekend. Lime & Thyme did their wedding bomboniere. Here is a quick photo of all the jar labels, string and wedding packaging packaging pieces before they were all put together.
We have just been advised that we have been accepted at the Leura Village Fair.
During the garden festival, Leura garden enthusiasts open their gardens to the public and you can visit their gorgeous gardens daily between 05.10.2013 - 13.10.2013.
The Leura Village Fair is held on the last weekend of the festival 12th & 13th October, 2013 and if we are lucky, the beautiful trees in the middle of the main street of Leura will be all out in flower.
Here's a photo of the lovely pink blossoms from two years ago.
How nice that our very first blog post is too announce our recent success in the 2013 Sydney Fine Food Awards.
Raspberry Pickled Pears
Pear & Vanilla Jam
Raspberry & Pear Jam
This is the only competition we entered this year and we are delighted with the results. What's great about the Fine Food Awards is they give medals based on points, rather than issuing a 1st, 2nd or 3rd so it's not a competition as such, but more an opportunity to earn recognition for a product. In addition the judges provide feedback and comments which can often help to take a good product and turn it into something extra special. It's nice to know that of the 6 products we entered, 4 products had something that the judges thought worthy of a medal.
The best feedback and recognition comes from our customers when they come back because they love our products, but it's nice to receive a bit of "official" recognition as well.
