Hello Dolly!

In this post we would like to give you a break from us talking about us, and talk about someone else instead! We would like to talk about one of our recent clients - 'The Vintage Tea Traveller'. Their business offers a unique service where you can experience vintage dining at it's best! They contacted us as they needed a character design for their vintage caravan 'Dolly', and wanted us to illustrate her, and create a character to use at events and for merchandising. Here at 'Flossy and Jim', we love anything vintage,  so you can imagine our delight being given such an exciting brief, with such an adorable caravan!

'Dolly' the vintage caravan!
Dolly the vintage caravan was fully restored in 2013, and is available to rent for weddings, celebrations or events and festivals. She is fully self contained and offers everything from tea and cake to cream teas and the full afternoon tea experience. They provide an 'at seat' service all served on proper vintage china or they can offer a takeaway service including their renowned "takeaway cream tea".

How quaint!

'The Vintage Tea Traveller'

'The Vintage Tea Traveller' offers hire of the use of their vintage tea room set including all the crockery and cutlery, and offer staff that are dressed in period dress to serve your guests!
They can provide you with unlimited tea and a selection of biscuits (already our best friends!), and a slice of home made cake per guest. Choices include victoria sponge, coffee and walnut, carrot cake and chocolate. You also have the option to add sandwiches and a traditional Devonshire Cream Tea if required. To ensure a vintage atmosphere, 1930's/40's music is played on the retro wireless. We love this company!

'Pinkies Up!'

How yummy does this cake look? *Dribble*

So, here is our 'Dolly' character design! We think she looks very happy to see you!
