Entertaining

Shell we Lay the Table? One tabletop idea you conch resist when you sea it…

Setting the table at Lord Beaverbrook’s magnificent country house really took me on a walk through history. From gorgeous gardens to stone pavilions dotted around the grounds, there is an abundance of inspiration to be found here. Nevertheless, it was the shell-encrusted grotto by Belinda Eade that captured me the most and was the inspiration for Sharland England’s Autumn tablescape. It’s quite magical! The grotto […]

Terracotta Table Love

Balmy evenings, fresh drinks, good company and terracotta-toned tablescapes for me this summer! I’ve always adored warm browns and terracotta tones. They bring back so many memories of happy childhood summers spent with my family in the south of France, where eating together and entertaining was a cherished daily activity. […]

Marbled Spring Table

Is it too early to be planning my marbled spring table?! I think not and with some sunny days in my kitchen I have been creating some new styles and tablescapes. After the berry reds and forest greens of Christmas I’m enjoying bright colours, pretty glassware and florals…both on the […]

An Autumn Table

Did I mention I love tablescaping? One of the reasons I love a change of season so much is because it means a whole new palette on the table (as well as in my wardrobe of course.) This was also my first proper table top in the new house so […]

Tablescaping 101

It’s no secret how much I love a beautiful tablescape, and this baby shower table was a joy to put together. I can’t wait for the next occasion when Inès can join us and I’m already planning another corner of our new home perfect for a chic and colourful lunch, […]

My Spring Table

Nothing makes me happier than a decorative tabletop and the spring ones are amongst the prettiest, and the most fun to create. This year it’s doubly exciting because I’m also making my spring table into an Easter brunch and a mini baby shower. It’ll be Mackenzie, Honor, the bump and […]

Gift Wrapping Made Pretty

Wrapping presents really puts me in a Christmas mood and this year I’m starting a little earlier, so that we can put all the presents under the tree. Nothing completes the festive look quite like it. Usually it’s a frantic Christmas Eve rush to wrap everything between Honor’s bedtime and […]
