I love this. I was really pleased when Hayley approached me and asked me if I would feature her and Betty on LMW as its such a fun and unique addition to any wedding. Picture this, she rocks up at your wedding with Betty, a 1950′s themed ice cream van, decked out in Cath Kidston and bunting a plenty. Inside, the vintage ice cream van is packed full of old fashioned goodies to treat your guests.
Guests can choose from locally produced farmhouse ice cream and retro flavoured lollies (cherry brandy, cider, lager and lime), old fashioned sweets from the jars, pretty glass bottled drinks such as dandelion and burdock, cloudy lemonade and her grandma’s favourite ginger beer!
Fabulous idea and no suprise that Hayley and Betty have just won Country Homes magazine’s Run Your own Country Business of the Year award and will be featured in the mag this September! Congrats to you both!This is vintage heaven and I imagine a popular attraction with the kiddies too.
I asked Hayley how she came up with the idea (it is a great one) to restore this 1973 Bedford cf, and then use it to serve up old fashioned fabulousness around the country.
“I started up as I just love vintage/ retro style….Betty is just an extension of all my passions!!! I love my job…I can smile, poodle along driving her to pretty garden parties, weddings and summer fetes!!!! And wear the most floral frocks and flowers in my hair xx My Mum died last year age 53 and I decided to do something fun…my mum would love it!!!!”
Betty can be hired for events in Bucks, Beds and Northants and can even be transported further afield should she be needed. Prices start from £200 but obviously depends on location, number of guests etc, so its best to speak to Hayley about your personal needs – for more info have a look at the site, Vintage Scoops.
What do you think ladies (and gentlemen if you are reading) isn’t this just the cutest idea? I’m trying to conjure up some events so I can get Betty down to London.
