About

It started with tea and scones…and loads of clotted cream!

My husband and I have always liked our food, and most of our days out and holidays seem to be centred around lovely places to eat. It was on one of these occasions, in Cornwall, when we were having a delicious cream tea in the outside courtyard of a very cute tea room, that we started to talk about our future. I had always wanted to start my own design business, but had never really thought I could do it. So we discussed what I wanted to do, what I was good at and what I had a passion for, and we worked out that I simply wanted to make things, which made other people happy. Birthdays, weddings and engagements are very special to me, so I knew I wanted to focus on them. So we had a concept, we decided on Etsy as my platform, and now all we needed was a name…

It was at this moment that I noticed, during our conversation, we had dropped some scone crumbs on to the patio of the courtyard. So I picked up a napkin and was about to scoop them up onto our finished with plates, when there was a rustle from the nearby hedge. We watched with interest, not knowing what was happening, and then from the depth of the branches came these very round, very fluffy little birds. I would like to tell you that swooped down gracefully to eat the crumbs we had dropped, but I would actually be lying to you! Instead, they practically fell from the hedge to gobble up the crumbs, and then awkwardly 'flew' (note the inverted commas), back up into the hedge. They were the cutest, fattest little things I have ever seen, and they obviously had very happy lives living next door to a tea room. They made both of us laugh and smile, and so we decided to name my new venture after them…Chubby Sparrow is in honour of them and that moment.
