or give us a call on 07975 694999 and we will be happy to help.
Will I need to be in to sign for my delivery?
All goods sent via our standard service are sent via Royal Mail, so they will be delivered by your normal postal worker, and will not require a signature.
Goods sent via our Express Delivery service will require a signature on delivery, or details of a neighbour or safe place where the driver can leave your parcel. Occasionally, items weighing over 1kg will be sent via courier under our standard service, and these too will require a signature. All customers who are sent orders via courier will be notified upon despatch.
N.B. Please help us to help you, by giving a delivery address where you are sure somebody will be available to accept delivery (a work address, for example), or give us details of a neighbour who can take delivery on your behalf, or a safe place where our courier can leave your parcel - ie, porch or garage.
At any time you can log in to our secure area with your email address and order number, where you will find details of your order and status updates.
If you choose standard delivery, your goods will be sent by Royal Mail, so it will not be possible to track your order.
If you choose our courier delivery option, you will be able to track your order. Please contact us via email or telephone (07975 694 999) and we will send you the consignment note number, the courier's website address, where you will find full details of your parcel's progress.
Sadly, we no longer deliver to the United States, however we do deliver to European Union countries. We have a special option for this region at checkout. Occasionally heavy items will incur a surcharge, but all customers will be informed of this before despatch and given the option of proceeding with their order.
Can I add my own sweets and cake?
Yes you can. Our filled party bags are all supplied unsealed. (The twist ties for the cellophane bags are supplied in a seperate bag.)
The cellophane bags which contain filled animal mugs are fastened loosely with a twist tie, so you can easily open them to add extra treats. If you prefer us to keep these bags open, then we are happy to do this for you. Simply select the option you prefer from the drop down box on the product page. Twist ties will be supplied in a separate bag.
Do you have any discount codes or special offers?
We have one permanent discount offer - which is free delivery on all orders over £85.00.
We do occasionally run special offers, but in general we keep our prices as low as possible to give our customers the best deal all year round.
