Father's Day is on Sunday 20th June, have you got your card and/or gift ready yet? With that in mind, here is your second Father's Day themed blog. Don't forget to check out the first one, if you missed it and are after some gift inspiration.
Father's day crates are a lot of fun to design and paint...I love that some customers will come to me with a really specific use in mind (somewhere to keep all of daddy's pocket stuff so it isn't cluttering up the kitchen worktop :D). Others come with a list of hobbies and interests and ask me to come up with something that reflects those (like the Daddy sports crate). Then there are those crates, like the simplified photo of dad and baby, which are just so unbelievably personal and special...and I am just so grateful that I get to paint them! The conversations I have with customers to develop a design give me a taste into what their 'dad' is like and the relationship they have with them. I honestly do love that. The BBQ crate is a classic example of this...'Dad' loves to BBQ and everyone loves Dad's BBQ food! If you have an idea for a Father's Day crate contact me here and we can have a chat about it, I'll then mock up a couple of design options and send them to you to think about. Then it's as easy as making the payment through my website and waiting for updates and delivery.
Today's guest business's products would pair perfectly with a BBQ crate and I know my own dad would have 'relished' the chance to sample their delicious offerings on a HUGE fully loaded sandwich (despite my mum being a magnificent cook my dad's favourite food was always sandwiches?!)
Sarah from 'The Tastes of the Mediterranean' is a real foodie and her jams, chutneys and other delicious treats will have your 'Dad's' taste buds tingling, that's for sure...Read on to find out more.
Hello, I am Sarah from Tastes of the Mediterranean.
Tastes of the Mediterranean is a family run business - I am the recipe writer/chef, my sister and boyfriend take care of the technology/technical side of things and my mum helps me at markets and events. We make artisan Mediterranean inspired jams, chutneys, savoury jams and marmalades. Olive jam, roasted garlic jam, chilli jam and cherry and almond jam are just a few examples.
We are just about to launch a range of vegan chocolate products and also sell Turkish delight.
Our business started because I was adamant I could make a savoury jam from olives!
I wrote a recipe, tweaked it a little after making a batch and hey presto, it is now one of our best sellers on our website and at markets and events.
Although we have a few traditional flavours in our range, the majority are my own creations and recipes, which are heavenly, versatile and make excellent kitchen essentials and gifts.
We have two new themed gift sets being released for Father's day - BBQ themed gift set (above) and our Father's day themed gift set (below).
You can find our full range of products and order on our website www.tastesofthemed.co.uk
Remember I will be closing Moore Crate Occasions order books for Father's Day crates on Sunday 6th June. They are £24.99 with FREE UK delivery and are available here. If you have a specific design idea in mind please contact me to discuss it.
