At Sweetpea & Co. we see the value and potential in discarded, forgotten or secondhand items, that others may miss. Items left by the roadside, lost in the back of a cupboard for years or donated to charity shops, are found by Sweetpea & Co. and are given a new life. Our aim is to restore and improve these items with creativity, love and skill for others to enjoy both now and for years to come.

what we do

upcycling craft

From baby bunting, lavender hearts to christmas wreaths and stockings at Sweetpea & Co. we lovingly handcraft beautiful items for yourself or a special someone, made from secondhand or discarded materials in Crouch End, North London.

Are you going to a wedding and would like to bring some natural, biodegradable confetti to throw over the happy couple? Then these two organza bags filled with real rose petal confetti are what you need! I have collected mainly british and locally grown rose flowers which would have been thrown away or composted, and have naturally air dried them to make beautiful rose petal confetti. The dried rose petals are packaged in two neutral organza bags, which are a perfect size to fit in a wedding handbag or pocket. Each bag is a good amount for two guests to throw over the newlyweds. The rose petals are naturally coloured and biodegradable, and therefore suitable for most venues that do not allow artificial confetti to be thrown. However, it is best to check with the venue beforehand to avoid disappointment.

Reflections on being vegan for lent

I thought I would write a blog post about my attempt at being vegan for lent this year and things I learnt. When I told friends about this, I had so much support and encouragement – sharing good vegan recipe blogs, and one friend posting me her vegan book ‘The Daniel Fast’! Overwhelmingly amazing! My friend Kat, […]
