Even though I am not exactly young any more (well OK, definitely well past middle age!), I still love and get excited by birthdays! So I am thrilled to tell you that we have nearly reached The Collage Company’s 4th birthday - yippee and nearly Happy Birthday to Us!!!

As ever, the last year seems to have flown past and we have achieved a lot both in developing the brand and building sales - so a massive thank you to all our clients past and present. We love getting feedback from our clients and hearing wonderful comments such as “ I can’t tell you how thrilled I am”...or “the product was just fantastic” is just brilliant! Please keep them coming!

Thoughts of birthdays led me to wondering what celebrations we should plan (more of this later) and to exploring a few of the weird and wonderful ways in which people around the globe celebrate their birthdays, other than the obvious balloons, bunting, streamers and cakes!

For instance, only in America (I think?!) does the latest craze seem to be ‘smash-cakes’ - cakes smothered in  icing and decoration  purely for the toddler to destroy and make as much mess as they wish??? Other rather odd (well, to me anyway!) customs include being soaked to the skin and having flour thrown all over you (Jamaica why??), birthday nose-greasing (Canada - weird!!) and having your face pushed into your cake (Venezuela)  which strikes me as a tragic waste of rather yummy birthday cake! In Vietnam New Year’s Day is everybody’s birthday and children celebrate the year and the lunar symbol under which they were born - certainly wouldn’t feel like your special day would it?!

And what about presents? I would be lying if I didn’t admit that I do get rather excited about presents on my birthday - and surprises are definitely the best type! But I would definitely have a sense of humour failure if I were to receive the gift that one friend’s brother-in law received from his wife for his birthday - a plot in a graveyard!! Other odd gifts I have come across included an urn with relative’s ashes in it (?!!), an ironing board (do you think he is still alive?!) and a case of Spam...definitely NOT the thought that counts!

Luckily, the next time you are stuck for what to buy for that difficult person who has everything or the elderly relation who doesn’t want more ‘things‘ - think unique photo collage and your job is done! Our beautiful montages are the most personal of presents and will bring a smile to the face of just about anyone!

Just send us your pics, call us on 01420 562208 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. -and the job is done - we would love to hear from you!
