Just Shoot Us

Its been a hub of activity here at Dand HQ, with yesterdays big bake off and morning tea, and earlier in the week we were lucky to be able to play stylists for the day in a photo shoot for Country Home Mag due out in Summer 09/10. Here are some 'behind the scenes' shots from the day - you'll have to wait till the end of the year to see what clever and pretty ideas we came up with so stay tuned

We are all looking forward to a restful weekend, hopefully with some dandicrafts involved, ready to get back to the drawing board next week!

Australia's Biggest Morning Tea

This morning the Dandi ladies hosted a decadent tea party with all sorts of cakes, muffins, cupcakes, scones, slices and biscuits. We had around 25 guests attend and raised over $500 for The Cancer Council as part of Australia's Biggest Morning Tea.

Our party in full swing

It was lots of fun baking all the yummy treats and all recipes were a huge success amongst the grateful guests who happily tucked in.

Some of the yummy goods on offer

Us Dandi ladies are feeling very satisfied with our efforts and appetites! Morning Teas can be hosted any time during May or June so visit the Biggest Morning Tea website and register your interest!

Dandi introduces the latest bold, bright and beautiful design to the oilcloth range – Bloom. A vibrant burst of berry red flower petals with accents of curling white stripes, the print is a subtle nod to nautical inspiration and the perfect backdrop for your home d├ęcor.

The Bloom print will adorn Dandi’s popular range of oilcloth aprons for adults and kids, tablecloths, tote bags and a new mini tote-bag. Bloom oilcloth is also available to purchase off the roll so you can put your own creative twist on Dandi’s signature style for your own kitchen or home products. An added bonus of the range is the easy care of oilcloth, simply wipe clean any spills - no washing required!

The Bloom tablecloth lends itself to easy outdoor entertaining – whether in the garden, having a BBQ or out for the day with a picnic. Let the tablecloth set the scene and accessorise with simple dinnerware in plain colours. Dandi’s plain dyed napkins in berry, white or wisteria work back with the Bloom print for a striking nautical look.
