Carole went on to explain how Party Pieces came to be, saying that when her three children Kate, Pippa and James were young she was disappointed by the "complete lack of party paraphernalia" available."This prompted Michael and I to launch our own small mail order company from a shed in our back garden in 1987," she added. "And whilst we've grown in size, we're still very much a family business. "I love sourcing and developing new products and I'm delighted to share my favourite finds with Little London readers."
