What a year its been! We thought it would be nice to do a yearly round up, the past year has been amazing here at B&G, from the launch of our new site, 2 amazing events & another successful trip to Paris to get inspiration and innovative new ideas for all of you!
We are so proud of everything we have achieved this year, as an independent business we want to continue to grow and be innovative with our brand! We love how many of you want to help us do that to ,with your custom, sharing and all round kindness about how you see us as a brand!
We launched our brand new website at the beginning of this year, a makeover that truly speaks to you as we always wanted! We hope you all still love it as much as we do. We collaborated with some of our favourite influencers on personalised candles which you have been loving.
We continue to create our signature flower arrangements, we even teamed up with Windsor Bishop for some beautiful wedding open days to share our beautiful flowers with 'brides to be in Norwich.
We said we love you and good bye to our Polzeath store. Much love to our Cornwall days, but we now look ahead to the B&G Norwich HQ era of B&G!
We launched even more beautiful scents of our B&G Signature Candle, with a range of bath and body lotions and hand washes too!
Another successful year of Paint Workshops, with so many of you wanting to learn more we have created some unique and creative workshops for our 2018 calendar! We are so excited for more of you to learn and create with us!
We held not 1 but 2 events this year! The first being a blogger event which was so lovely to catch up with our blogger gals for an evening of nibbles, prosecco and each ups!
Our 2nd event was our biggest ever and an amazing collaboration with other amazing local businesses', Hairsmiths and Bond being just a few in a star line up of local businesses' that took part and collaborated with the event!
We had another successful trip to Paris for the Maison et Object Trade show to source buy and soak up so much innovation and inspiration, that we can't wait to inject into the store even more next year! We even had a cheeky trip to Disney which was truly magical.
We have continued to hold our Paint workshops, with so many of you learning and creating with us. We have now added some new techniques and fun courses to next years calendar too!
An incredible opportunity came to us in the last third of the year from the oh so lovely Tiffany Watson and her new venture THREE SIX FIVE, we created and put together her stand set up at Stylist Live in London. What an amazing experience that was and such a great response from all involved.
One of our final highlights of the year is the amazing Royal Arcade Christmas Decorations. We banded together illustrators, art students and creatives to create 1000 handwritten envelopes to hang from the ceiling of the Arcade! Wow how magical has it looked over the festive period!
Lets look back at some highlights of 2017!
We can't quite believe how quick the year has gone, but looking back we can't quite comprehend how much we have achieved! It has been one hell of a ride, and we have enjoyed every minute of it!
