Well, school holidays are upon us and Easter looms very near so we've decided to run a colouring competition for all the fabulous kids that visit us in the shop and cafe.  We were sent this super cute colouring page by one of our awesome suppliers, OB Designs, and thought it was the perfect candidate for some colouring fun.

You can download a printable PDF from HERE to colour at home or if you're in the shop or cafe this week pick up a copy from our lovely staff. 

Now, the best bit is, if you return it to us by noon on Easter Sunday (20 April 2014) you go into the running for a Kid's High Tea from Tulips. YUMMO.

Oh and while you're here, take a sneak peak at what OB Designs make. We already have some of these softies in stock but there are also more to arrive. Cute yes?

Cute Letter Folding Tutorial

Anyone remember doing this at high school? We decided to use this letter folding technique for some recent vouchers we were making.  Did you happen to get one in a goodie bag from Canberra Creatives Mega Craft Day?

Anyway, it's super easy and pretty cute for so many uses! Be fun to write notes for the kids and pop in their lunchboxes hey? Or maybe, just like in high school, a special love letter for your sweetheart... nawww.

We thought we'd share our experience here in the form of a quick and easy photo tutorial.

Everybody Needs Good Neighbours

You may or may not be aware that our little shop is located right next door to our great little cafe Tulips and that we are regularly bombarded with delicious foodie smells wafting through our door. 

Of course it's a blessing and a curse all at the same time isn't it? It's lucky we are often too busy to be snacking all day or we may find ourselves struggling to fit through doorways and supermarket checkouts!

We wanted to share with you a quick pic of today's Friday Lunch Special. Every week chef Josh whips up something fabulous and new for the occasion. Today he's gone for a Chicken Pad Thai, so simple and fresh and AMAZING. It's a tough life being official photographer and taste-testers but someone has to do it right?

Kidtastic School Holiday Craft Program at Tulips Cafe

Have you brought the kids out to Tulips yet to get crafty? Charmaine from Homemade Kids Parties has been busy running craft sessions at the cafe for the last few months. She has ramped up the sessions for the holidays, with an earlier start (10am) and Friday sessions as well as the usual Tuesday's and Thursdays.

You can find the calendar of events on our facebook page here -

Next week the children will be making Hairy Caterpillars! Then our ever popular Potting classes will also feature.

If you have pre-schoolers and toddlers, don't forget that the program will continue after school is back, each Tuesday and Thursday from 10am. Stay tuned for that program!
