Simply a wonderful year!

Friday, December 21, 2012

We have had the most amazing year at Simply Bows and Chair Covers and none of it would be possible without the continued support from our clients past and present who we would like to thank and wish a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Our reasons to celebrate 2012.....


Opened our 10th Office

Susan Boyle and her daughter, Vicki Cairney, opened our Dundee office of Simply Bows and Chair Covers in Summer 2012. Susan joined Simply Bows and Chair Covers following 12 years in the leisure industry in Scotland having worked for David Lloyd Leisure and was previously working as a bridal consultant. Susan’s daughter, Vicki, works alongside her and brings with her a variety of experience from the fashion industry. Also, having recently planned her own wedding, Vicki is passionate about the creative aspects and importance of organisation in wedding planning.

Susan and Vicki now work around the Dundee and Perth region providing a bespoke service and top-of-the-range products made to measure for a variety of locations such as hotels, country houses and private homes.


We Won Theo Paphitis SBS
Each Sunday between 5pm and 7.30pm Theo, best known for appearing on the BBC’s Dragon’s Den series and being Chairman of Ryman Stationary, asks his quarter of a million followers on Twitter to send him details of their small businesses and why they deserve to be named as one of his top six of the week.
Using the hash-tag #SBS (Small Business Sunday) thousands of businesses contact Theo each week which he then reviews and chooses who he deems to be the best. Winners are then named via his Twitter account on Monday evening and added to his successful website, . Week commencing 22.10.12 Simply Bows and Chair Covers was one of the six chosen businesses.
