Bunting for the stall


Just recently I bought this bunting on ebay.


www.cocoandme.com - Coco&Me - coco and me - bunting with woodland animals - small

(‘scuse the harsh shadows… midnight photography…)


I was on the look out for bunting for ages so I was so happy when I finally found one I liked! I wanted a design that was not too twee or country-chic/ shabby-chic. And I didn’t want to go for the usual tricolour of red, white & blue that I’ve been seeing everywhere.


This lovely handmade bunting is in an old & rare Cranston print fabric called Bank Holiday. Depicted are dressed up woodland animals enjoying themselves at a country fair.


Currently on my stall I have a fair bit of ‘animal-theme’ going on! ^^

I have the bird design on the cheesecake & on the chocolate tart (pictures of those can be found here & here.) Then there are bunny shaped biscuits on the large cakes & tarts too (picture of the biscuit can be found here). I also have tiny yellow birds clipped on the cake racks! So having this new animal bunting is just the fitting addition, I think!

Anyway, hope all is well everyone, & I do hope to write another recipe for here soon…!!

Warmest regards, Tamami xx

  12. Cute!! (Are you still selling those wooden hares, by the way? They would go well with the bunting!) Looking forward to the upcoming recipe. xx

  13. Hi Rachel! no, those hares are long gone! When I sold out of it, I tried to get more from the seller but they had changed the varnish on it & it looked ultra scary! Hope all is well! Take care! xx

  16. Hi,
    I love the bunting…..
    Just been flicking thru ‘jamie’ issue no 23 and see you got a mention in ‘stall tales’.
    I really must come down to London sometime and have a mooch round the market….and buy cake of course! :)

  17. Hello Michiko san, thank you for your comment! Yes, I was really chuffed to see that they mentioned me in the Jamie magazine! I ofcourse bought a copy for safe keeping! :) – I hope you managed to go back to Japan to see your family! All the best, t x

  18. This made me look up bunting on the internet. I had always thought it was just something warm to bundle a baby in…who knew it was also something decorative! It is lovely, by the way, I have never seen any quite like it. And thanks for expanding my vocabulary a little bit!!

  19. Hello Heidy! Me on the other hand didn’t know that there was another meaning to bunting either! So babies can snuggle in blankets called buntings I see…! Ah-ha! My vocab expanded a little too now! Cheers! :) x
