A Day at the Races: a mini-project to try!

4 April 2013

We love any excuse to get dressed up and what better reason than Ladies’ Day at the races!

A day at the dolls' house races

As it’s a special occasion why not treat yourself to a glass or two of champagne?

You might have something to celebrate with our dolls, all dressed up to the nines!

If you would like to recreate some of the features in our Ladies’ Day scene, go to “how to” at and make your own Winning Post and a hedge-topped stone-built wall adapted especially for the horses.
