If you go down to the woods today

15 Oct

A former editor of mine once informed me that only stylists have picnics.

Of course I disagree… but an autumn picnic on a hanging table with real glasses and silver candlesticks in the middle of a woodland glade?

Yeah ok. I’ll give her that one.

Whimsical yes, but tell me you wouldn’t want one of these in your garden?!

If you’re into food blogs I highly recommend you check out Salted & Styled*. It’s new to me and they’ve done something that feels really innovative by using one star ingredient as the springboard for a week’s worth of recipes, profiles, styling ideas, lifestyle photography, illustration and video.

* A warning to the vegetarians / squeamish amongst you… this link contains some cute bunnies shown in a way you might not enjoy so much!

N is for Napkins

“People mentioned in Debrett’s never speak of serviettes”

An oft-quoted nugget of wisdom from my Granny – she went to Swiss finishing school so when it comes to silly rhymes about manners, there’s no better source!

And that’s why these pretty pins come now rather than eight letters down the line…

Icy white table ideas

6 Feb

Brrrrrr! I’ve spent the weekend bundled up like a dormouse in a nest of blankets, but there’s nothing prettier than a landscape dusted with snow and laced with frost outside the window. This crisp white table by prop stylist Dietland Wolf seems the perfect choice just now. Just add comfort food…

I love dried cow parsley heads. Growing up in the countryside they were everywhere but I need to try and hunt some out now I live in London… I need something to pop into my little bird vase and one of these would look cute and last a while too.
