If you love cake and crafts then you need to join me after the page cut :)
So today I took part in my last craft fair of the year at my favourite Lulubelle's Cakes in Dorset. You may have flicked through the photos wondering where you have seen the adorable spot before and if so, you're right because I had it as the backdrop to my Beauxoxo Spring and Summer look book this year, and if you want, you can check out the whole look book here.
Lulubelle's Cakes is a lovely tea room and cake workshop based in Poole, Dorset, nearby to the infamous Sandbanks (basically where some of the most expensive houses in the world exist, and umm, Thunderbird house anyone? Hmm, seperate post me thinks!). In its current form, Lulubelle’s is split in two halves. The first half sells cupcakes and coffees to take away, hosts many a delicious workshop and contains the kitchen where all the baking, making and decorating happens. The second half of Lulubelle's is for the sweetest tea rooms, which offers a more relaxed, sit-down atmosphere to really savour the delicious, yummy cakes, from Battenburg, to Victoria Sponge to even french toast and it's place to either have a good old natter with your friends, or just somewhere to catch up on blogging even or have some time to relax.
While you tuck into your treats of choice and sip your tea from cute vintage china teacups with saucers, you can get stuck into reading one of the books that hides among the shelves or part money on beautiful handmade crafts from sellers across the area. sure you check out the range of gifts on sale from local artists. So, as Christmas is ever nearing, Lulubelle's decided to have a little craft fair showcasing these handmade gifts. I sold my Beauxoxo hair accessories alongside beautiful Christmas cards and photo-montages from Emily Taner, hand-painted silk scarves and other pretties from Little Vagries, seriously lust-worthy wash-bags and other amazing fabric goods from Lovely Jubbly, the sweetest ceramic cat and dog features from Emily Stracey (also, beautiful ceramic bowls from a seller I am going to update as soon as I find out the brand name, I'm so sorry!).
If you're around the Dorset area with a sweet tooth like me then you absolutely must pop into Lulubelle's and you can pick up some of my hair accessories too!
