August, Abba and.... erm.... aubergines???

Are you stuck with what to get a couple of 19 year old for their birthday? May I suggest an interflora picnic hamper and a coupe of cinema under the stars tickets!!!

Beccy and Amy are celebrating their 19th birthday within days of each other and had planned to go to Bristol to see Abba Mania, for a bit of a warm up they booked tickets at the Cinema Under the Stars in Llanthony Priory to see Mama Mia on a 35ft screen.

Well look what turned up during the morning of the screening.... an interflora Ultimate Indulgence Hamper well where do we start...  In a Domed Chest With Leather Strap there was Las Montanas Chilean Merlot two bottles of Dows Midnight Port, Swayfen Roasted Cashews with Black Pepper , Paddy & Scott's After Dinner Coffee, Lily O Briens Luxury Chocolates, Buiteman Savoury Biscuits, The Fudge Tree Company Clotted Cream Fudge, Sweet Chilli Sauce, The Original Cake Company Dundee Cake, , Spiced Plum Chutney, Savoury Oval Biscuits, , Almond & Vanilla All Butter Cookies, Shortbread House Chocolate Orange Selection absolutley everything you could possibly need for a night under the stars. There was even Edinburgh Scottish Breakfast Teabags, Mrs Bridges Apricot & Peach Preserve & Whisky Marmalade for the next morning!!!

I have been the lucky recipient of a couple of these hampers now and its so exciting when they arrive, always well packed, this one was sat in a large cardboard box wrapped in gold paper, it was all very exciting! Fab quality and a great selection of product. I’m going to surprise my youngest with a sweet nostalgia hamper for her 16th birthday, but shhhhh that's going to be a suprise!!!

They all had a great time, sitting on the grass with brollies at the ready singing voices warmed up and now VERY VERY excited about going to the hippodrome to for Abba Mania

PS - The title of this post was shamelessly stolen from the name of Beccy's FB album where I pinched the photos from!!! Thanks Bex and Happy Birthday for the 17th!!!!
