Get Ready with Freddie Cousin Brown at Pandora HQ

freddy cousin brown bloggers freddy my love

I was so excited recently to visit Pandora HQ in Oxford Street for a Get Ready with Me event with blogger Freddie Cousin Brown. My daughter is a huge Freddie My Love fan and as soon as she heard about the event she begged me to get tickets as an early birthday present and well, I couldn’t refuse.

So on a Saturday evening in May we headed off to the flagship Pandora store on Oxford Street, and on arrival were greeted by a short queue of attendees all faithfully wearing shades of pale pink (Freddie’s favourite colour).

We were greeted by the lovely Pandora staff (all also wearing pink) and were given a gift box with a preloaded Pandora gift card in a gorgeous ribbon tied gift box, to exchange in the store (squeee!).

We headed upstairs where the hospitality from the Pandora team couldn’t have been more amazing, they had laid on lots of lovely touches – a cocktail bar, sweetie buffet, manicures, hair styling.

Freddie did a meet and greet. I have to say she is so lovely and super stunning in real life and I found myself coming over all fan girl too, much to my daughters dismay!

Later, Freddy did a really interesting and useful Q&A, outlining her top tips for getting ready in the morning, her favourite make up brands and how to stay stunning looking all day.

Freddy’s family – Mum, Dad & sister Coco were also at the event and it was lovely to meet them and chat about Freddy’s amazing success and rise to fame over the last couple of years.

After a few hours of pampering, indulging and chatting, we headed down to the store where we exchanged our gift cards for more Pandora goodies. I couldn’t immediately see anything I wanted to buy. As a baker, I tend not to wear too much jewellery, but my daughter was more than happy to make use of my gift card.

Back at the Nila Holden bakery, I was inspired to make some pretty logo biscuits with the gorgeous Pandora branding – including of course some pretty pink themed biscuits!

My daughter asked me to make some biscuits for Freddy and her younger sister Coco which we gave to them at the event. Some pink (of course!) loveheart biscuits for Freddy and unicorn and rainbow biscuits for Coco.

All in all, we had an amazing time at the event – huge thanks to Freddy and the Pandora team..!

Logo biscuits for Flymo & McCulloch UK

nila_holden_branded_biscuits_flymo

Just dropping by to show you some corporate biscuits we made recently for our client the integrated PR, Digital and creative communications agency OPR for their clients Flymo and McCulloch, brands owned by Swedish company Husqvarna

OPR were looking to source some biscuits as freebie giveaways for an industry event. Both McCulloch and Flymo logos and brands have great market awareness and the Flymo logo in particular is very easily recognisable. 

Seeing the Flymo branding took me right back to my teenage years and endless hours mowing my parents lawns (front and back!) with our hover mower. I’d always load up some tunes onto my cassette walkman – Aha and Duran Duran were real favourites for mowing duties and walk up and down the garden with the Flymo hovering and gliding across the grass. 

In discussions with OPR, we decided that the most cost effective design would be go with a neutral icing topped with the printed logos. When you have such iconic, instantly recognisable logos this approach is often the most impactful and gives a clean unfussy finish to the biscuits.

The biscuits went down a treat and we had some great feedback from our client OPR:

“The biscuits did indeed arrive in good time, all the biscuits were in good order and they tasted delicious! The event was a great success and the client was really pleased. We’ll be sure to keep in touch and bear you in mind should we need any biscuits again….”

Corporate logo biscuits for Epson UK

We were super excited to make corporate logo biscuits for our client ReallyB2B recently for their client Epson UK. Epson UK have been undertaking a series of events and roadshows and was seeking some awesome branded goodies to give away to visitors.

The brief was for us to produce some sleek, sporty & colourful car biscuits based on the Epson corporate branding. We came up with these blue sports car biscuits complete with the Epson logo.

The biscuits went down a real treat with Epson, who pretty swiftly reordered another batch! Earlier this month we made a third batch of biscuits. The brief this time was to make some car biscuits but with some tweak to the design as the team at Epson have been working on a new marketing project.

This time we made up the biscuits in white icing, and added blue detail and the Epson logo as before. Each biscuit was individually wrapped to make it super easier to hand out or include in goodie bags.

We had some fantastic feedback from our client ReallyB2B “Hi Nila, we’ve just received the cookies and they look amazing!  Thank you SO much!! You are number 1 on our list if we ever need anything similar in the future…”

Holy lama Spice Cookies..!

holy-lama-corporate-biscuits-nila-holden

We were super excited when we were approached by our lovely friends at Holy Lama Spice drops recently to work on a corporate biscuit collaboration – with a spicy twist!

Holy Lama Spice drops take herbs and spices (from chilli to cardamom and lemongrass to cinnamon) and distil the essence into a mini bottle. Just one drop adds instant concentrated extract into your cooking, baking, confectionery, without any additional additives or preservatives.

Gouri at Holy Lama Spice drops was looking for some seasonal biscuits to send out to corporate clients and partners over the festive Christmas period. Gouri asked if there was some way we could incorporate some spice drop flavours into the biscuits. Spice drops are perfect for baking so we jumped at the chance to experiment with flavours and recipes.

Gouri was particularly keen to have an elephant biscuit to tie in the with her gorgeous and exotic looking corporate branding.

Over a few days we tested and tasted and come up with some gorgeous cardamon flavoured biscuits which were absolutely delicious – and for me a hint of nostalgia as the biscuits were very reminiscent of indian sweets that my lovely Mum used to make for us when we were young (cardamom nearly always featured!).

We iced the biscuits in beautiful red & orange to match the Holy Lama branding. Don’t they look beautiful?

Gouri presented the biscuits in a box with a beautiful festive Christmas card.  The gifts proved very popular with customers and partners alike withs lots of love on social media.

And some great feedback from the team at Spice Drops themselves!

Corporate logo biscuits for a digital marketing company

datify-logo-biscuits-nila-holden

We were super excited to make corporate logo biscuits for our client Datify last Christmas. Datify – a digital marketing agency was looking for boxed gift sets to send out to customers and partners to thank them for their support and give them a surprise sweet treat through the post.

The brief was for us to produce some bright, colourful biscuits based on the Datify corporate branding. Don’t you just love those bright cheerful wall decals? This looks like one seriously cool place to work!

The team at Datify provided us with the artwork and asked us to come up with a gift box of 12 biscuits incorporating elements of their branding, corporate colours, artwork etc.

Like most corporate organisations, the Datify team were super busy in the lead up to Christmas and opted to use our send direct service whereby we make up the biscuits and then send direct to your clients, reducing admin for you and freeing you up to get on with the day job!

We were so pleased with the results, the Datify corporate branding was a dream to work with and we were pleased that we were able to replicate the bright cheerful essence of the branding through the use of teal & yellow coloured icing.

We also requested that Datify send us some printed stationery for us to include with the biscuits, incorporating a seasonal gift message.

The biscuits proved to be very popular and there has been some great sharing of messages and photos of the biscuits on social media – here’s an example below.

Corporate biscuits for the Fussy Shopper

We were so excited when we were contacted by the lovely Sophie at the Fussy Shopper recently.  Sophie was looking for some corporate biscuits to send out to customers.

The Fussy Shopper offers personal shopping concierge and corporate gifting services, focusing on the luxury goods sector, and is a a trusted re-seller of Hermès products (be still my beating heart!).

Screen Shot 2016-08-05 at 17.29.21

The brief for the biscuits was to recreate a shopping bag in cookie form, a little like the biscuit bag cookies we made for Harrods recently, but with the Fussy Shopper branded colours and logo.

As we are just as particular and ‘fussy’ (pun intended!) about branding, corporate colours and logos we worked hard to come up with just right colour and design, offering Sophie a number of colourways and options to choose from.

In the end, the client Sophie went with the a shade of teal blue with black piped royal iced accents.

The client was super chuffed with her biscuits! If you are a Fussy Shopper customer, be sure to look out for these little beauties on your shopping travels.
