Party, party!

After being nominated for 3 Henries Awards we set off for the awards night at the Royal Lancaster, London last night. What a fabulous time we had!

The wonderful announcement of our own win for Best Relations and Occasions with our best-selling Platinum range was the icing on the cake!

After the awards it was time to hit the dance floor in true Belly Button style, we danced the night away to the sound of MadHen, one of the most inspirational bands we have ever seen!

With carriages at 2am we were sad to leave after what had been such a magical memorable night. It was time to go to bed ready to catch the train back to Manchester. To end the adventure back in Manchester some of the Belly Buttons (still a little bleary eyed!) were slow to get off the train resulting in the train driving out of the station while they were still on it, leaving Katie speechless on the platform!


Don't worry though, the lost Belly Buttons have been found and brought back to the studio safely!
