Back Seat

Hello all...

In a strange twist of fate after setting up and starting off Sure To Surprise You I got a promotion at work and I am running a sector of the business alongside the website! Simples?!

There are not enough days in the week but I love the fact that I am busy and can also bring both business together which is great....

Just need to have time to take photos and all will be well!!

Well, here we are in June and things are going well! Started a little 'sideline' to the business by selling decorations to Local Restaurants and Catering Companies for decorating customers tables for parties and celebrations which is going really well.

Got a new balloon and confetti range coming out in the next 4 weeks and I will also be starting a Cake Range in July/August for all you avid Bakers and Decorators!

Life seems to be going by in a flash at the moment! The saying 'one step forward and 2 steps back' also seems to be very apt...if only there was another day in the week to get all the jobs done?!

Inspiration is the word of the week! I think I have too much inspiration as I seem to look at anything and see an idea for the site but how do I inspire others? Music? Writing? Pictures?...Answers on a postcard please?!

An age!

Hello all who are listening (reading?!)...

Trying to have two jobs is actually becoming a little hard to do the one you want and need to focus on! My plans for new party bags is coming on well with Princess bag and also a new range of under £10 party bags will all be added to the site in the nest 2 weeks.
Also thinking of changing the site slightly with different ranges - cake one to be the most important...hmmm possibly chocolate one....Let's face it 'a balanced diet is a cake in each hand?!'

It's advertising week next week so will be tweeting, facebooking and blogging all week to try and get away from designing posters, sending out letters and business get walking round Windermere, Ambleside, Kendal and Bowness with my sellotape, bluetac and pins!

Right, I am off to feed the cats and get some sleep before starting another day...I do hope the thunder comes again...?

Welcome to Sure to Surprise You!

Hi all,

Well, the website went live on Tuesday very exciting and slightly scary! After a lot of planning and creating it has all come together and now I get to just sit back, relax and enjoy...hmmm I wish!

As this is my first blog (and I don't want to keep you for too long!) I think it only right to mention a little bit about the website and then we can go from there!

A little bit about us:

We want you to be able to have memorable occasions whether it is a fancy dress party, hen or stag party, wedding or birthday we have everything that will bring something different to your event.
If you can't find what you are looking for it doesn’t necessarily mean we can't get it for you. Why not contact us at and we can see what we can do?
Live for today, plan for tomorrow and party for tonight!

Remember to take a look at the site!
