Simply Baby Bows! Three 'Baby Bows' born this year...

Simply Bows and Chair Covers are renowned for offering family friendly franchise opportunities that are not only a great business opportunity but also allows for much better work life balance than many normal jobs! It's not surprising therefore that in this year alone three of our franchisees have given birth to babies! Three gorgeous new little girls join the Simply Bows and Chair Covers team.....

On January 6th, West Cumberland and Cumbria Director Kristy Giblin gave birth to the very beautiful Anya Nicole Giblin at 06.01 at Newcastle's Royal Victioria Infirmary.....

The amazingly cute Holly Sarah Cairney was born to one of our Dundee and Perth directors Vicki on 19th May at 00.45....

And just this week the lovely Claire who heads up our Aberdeen office gave birth to the gorgeous Megan Sadie Coutts at 16.47 on 18th June. Congratulations Claire!

How long before these little ladies can tie bows?!
