Oh, 2022 what a year!
My heart is full right now and if I had to sum up 2022 in one word it would be WOW. I'd like to start this blog post by showing my appreciation and gratitude to you by saying a very big and heartfelt thank you. Thank you for supporting my small business, my dream.
This year we have provided lollipop favours for those special events in life. From weddings, big birthdays, corporate events and anniversaries, to unique and thoughtful gifts for loved ones. We have provided lollipops for over 150 weddings and our lollipops have travelled all over the world, the furthest order shipped was to New York!
"We celebrated our wedding in Helsinki and wanted to say a huge thank you for creating the most delicious lollipops! All the guests loved them, and so pleased with the fact that people actually wanted to eat them or take their lollipops with them rather than leaving everything on the table which seems to happen quite often for wedding favours!"
It's time to grab a cuppa and enjoy our 2022 Yearly Round Up Blog Post. Thank you for being here, and thank you again for supporting Emily's Lollies!
New Product Launches
Over the last 12 months, we've launched some new, exciting and beautiful lollipop designs. The Wildflower Lollipop range has been very popular with couples wanting to achieve a romantic, natural and wild wedding style. All flowers are edible and available in a range of colours and delicious flavours.
Our beautiful Bridal Party Lollies have been one of the most successful launches to date. What a unique and pretty gift to give to your bridal party on the morning of your wedding or add to your Will You Be My Bridesmaid Box?
And not forgetting our lovely corporate clients. This year we started to incorporate our customers' branding onto the lollipops with edible icing. A perfect treat for employees to enjoy, or to gift to clients at corporate events and functions.
Press & Media
One of the biggest achievements of 2022 was press features in some incredible magazines and online blogs! Such media outlets include Wed Magazine, Northern Life and Cherubs Magazine.
The 2022 Christmas Collection was bigger and better than ever before! Customers ordered our Personalised Christmas Lollipops, Star Lollipops, and our famous Believe Lollipop to gift to their loved ones over the festive period. We would love to hear what designs you would like to see in 2023. We'd love to hear from you with any new and exciting ideas.
"I ordered three of the gorgeous Christmas lollies for my son's Christmas Eve box - the believe lolly, a red lolly with his name on it and a red lolly with a gingerbread man on it. The lollies came beautifully packaged and were absolutely perfect! Will definitely order again!"
Joined Not On The High Street
Another exciting highlight of 2022 was that we partnered with Not On The High Street to reach even more amazing customers. Not On The High Street specialises in gifts, and what's better still? All gifts are made or sourced by small independent companies in the UK.
1 Tree Planted For Every Order
Sustainability is very important to me both professionally and personally. When I founded Emily's Lollies back in 2018, I was driven to create a sustainable business that leaves a positive impact on our world. I've been working with Ecologi over the last three years to plant trees around the world for every order placed. So far, we have planted 1,700 trees as part of the Eden Rainforest Project, yes that's 1,700 trees planted because of your wonderful orders! Check out our Ecologi Virtual Rainforest here.
Thank you once again for supporting my business throughout 2022. I can't wait to see what 2023 brings. There are lots of exciting things happening at Emily's Lollies including another Lollipop Making Course and New Lollipop Designs for special occasions. Keep your eyes peeled for our Birthday Collection launching very (very) soon.
Don't forget to sign up to the Emily's Lollies newsletter for all our latest news, product launches, special exclusive discounts and much more.
Wishing you all a wonderful 2023.
