The Final Treat Petite

Welcome to the Final Treat Petite!

Thank you to everyone that linked up in November! There were some warming winter treats, great ideas for edible Christmas gifts and dinner party dessert stunners. Don’t forget to give the blog’s featured some comment love and social media sharing if you like or make any of the recipes featured!

As you may have guessed from the title of this post, this is the final Treat Petite post from me and there will be no link up this month. Can you believe Treat Petite started back in September 2013?! It was Cakeyboi’s original idea and he approached me to host the linky together. We hosted it on alternate months for 3 and a half years until he decided to take a step back from blogging and I took over the linky alone. We also used to have themes every month, previous themes included ‘Fit For A Queen’, ‘Let’s Get Fruity’ and ‘Childhood Memories’. In July 2016, the link up went theme-less and any Treat Petite was allowed. I’ve loved being involved in this link up and the fabulous bloggers it has lead me to meet along the way, but I’ve decided the time has come to close the (oven) doors on Treat Petite. I do feel genuinely sad about this, but I also feel ready for it. The end of the year feels like the right time for it too. And I must end with a huge thank you to everyone who has supported this link up and joined in over the years!

  1. Oh….. that’s so sad Kat….. and I missed the last one!
    I have loved this linky and (I think) was there for the beginning!
    Thanks for all your hard work in hosting over the years, I have really appreciated the time and effort that you have put in xx

  2. Bless you a linky is terribly hard work, people don’t realise what goes on behind the scenes. I’m gutted I hadn’t linked up more, but blogging can sometimes be a luxury for me with life getting in the way n all that jazz. Thank you for featuring me in your last every linky though…I am truly honoured xxx

  3. Aw I feel so sad that you’ve decided to close the proverbial oven doors on #TreatPetite Kat, it’s always been such a lovely linky 🙂 – though I completely understand the amount of time that running a linky demands.
    Great last round up with some lovely Chrismassy ideas 🙂

  4. Such a shame Treat Petite is ending but I do know what a huge amount of work a linky is to run each month. There are some lovely entries in the final round up x

  5. Hi Kat – sorry to hear the event has closed and even sorrier to take so long to find out but the end of last year and the start of this year have been pretty hectic and I haven’t been getting out and about with blogs as much as I wish. You (and Cakeyboi) have done a sterling job with the event and hope you are enjoying a little rest from the event organisation – seems you have been busy with blogging still!

    1. Hi Johanna, thank you so much for your support with this link up! Yes I’m definitely keeping myself busy! 😀
