As those lazy summer days draw to a close we jump straight into the Fall Festival season and the BritsBrand girls are making their debut at several local fairs. Last weekend was the WOW Fall Festival, which welcomed thousands of visitors to the beautiful town of Woodbury, CT. We were there with our British accents, humor and bunting galore. You couldn’t miss us! With lines weaving from our tent, the ever famous scone was devoured by everyone who stopped to sample our baking. We were there….. and everyone knew it. Serving scones with clotted cream and jam, mince pies and almond slices we didn’t have a minute. Our famous European style lemonade (and no, you cannot have the recipe…..) was so popular we couldn’t keep up with the demand. Of course, it wouldn’t have been an ‘afternoon tea’ without a brew and you could catch many tea fans enjoying a steaming hot cuppa to ‘cool’ them as the temperatures soared and the summer sun made a welcomed appearance. This was a first for us and we hope now a new tradition. If I said one person asked us “where we were based” it would be an understatement and one of these days we will be proudly responding with “oh, you know that cute little tea room on the main street in………., well that’s us”. Until then we’ll continue to share what we do ever so well, and continue to ‘pop-up’ where the demand takes us. If you missed us in Woodbury, never fear, we’ll be at the Hopkins Vineyard this weekend at their wine and cheese festival and also at Byrde and the B, bringing a traditional cream tea to the guests there as they enjoy an afternoon of shopping with Cloth children’s clothing.
At BritsBrand we judge our success by the feedback of our clients. When they are smiling and happy, then so are we. If we can make your event a little more special then we’ve achieved what we set out to do. Success is measured in many ways and for us small town British girls it’s no different. To hear that we have the best scones someone has ever tasted, or we get an email saying that we went above and beyond at a private party…. then we have done something right.
We continue to grow and evolve and you’ll never find us stopping still for too long. We are ever changing, improving and developing. Don’t believe us?…. just pop in to Bella Luna Gifts in Morris and check out our brand new display!
We thank you for all your support! Keep liking our posts and blogs and of course, signing our guestbook so we know what you think.
Hope to see you this weekend, but if not, don’t worry….. we’ll be popping up at an event near you in the not too distant future.
Now, get that kettle on and enjoy a brew!
Tara for now….
