Trending: 🍂 Autumn 🍂 Posted on 04 Oct 11:50

The nights are drawing in and we're starting to hunker down and turn our minds to all things autumnal! The autumn colours outside are one of the absolute highlights of the season and it's great to bring a little of the outdoors in by using the orange, russet, red, and yellow colour palette in the home and kitchen for a warm, spicy autumn feel (but without the chilly outside temperatures!). Our top of the autumn crops is most definitely the Ulster Weavers Autumn Bear tea towel:

This amazing cotton tea towel has ripe red apples and acorns on the branch with leaves turning from green to golden brown. Front and centre you can find a bobble-hatted bear with an excellent knit jumper and mittens with a trendy pumpkin spice latte. If this tea towel doesn't give you a warm autumn feeling, we just don't know what will! Be sure to check out the rest of our autumn picks by clicking here.

This Month We're All About... Alice In Wonderland 🐇♥️ Posted on 07 Sep 10:26

We've most definitely moved into late summer now and the BBQ/cocktail party vibes have gone away 'till next year. We've decided to fill the void with an elegant afternoon tea party that the Mad Hatter himself would be proud of!

Gone are the burgers and hot dogs, replaced with delicate finger sandwiches and bite-size cakes; ketchup and mayonnaise supplanted by jam and cream. If you're not quite ready for autumn with its soups, hot chocolates, and stews, afternoon tea is definitely the way to draw out the summer feeling without actually needing to be outside (it is getting a bit chilly!)

Nothing embodies the spirit of afternoon tea better than Alice in Wonderland and our range of fine bone china goodies with metallic gold decorations are exactly what the Queen of Hearts ordered. Our bestseller from the range is the teacup and saucer set which reads 'Curiouser and curiouser!' alongside reproductions of the original illustrations by Sir John Tenniel held in the archives of the V&A museum.

As well as this excellent teacup, you can also find teapots, cake forks, side plates and tea towels in the rest of our gorgeous V&A Alice in Wonderland range by clicking here.

Trending: 🌿 Botanical 🌿 Posted on 10 Aug 10:15

One of the big homeware trends of the summer is the botanical look - an easy way to lift a room, green things up and bring a fresh feel to your home. You can choose to take things more tropical with splashes of colour: think bright pinks and vibrant yellows mixed in with lush green. Or keep things nice and simple with layers of green foliage.

Whatever you prefer, we've got some great items to fit in with the botanical theme from tea towels and coasters to mugs and plates. Our absolute pick of the bunch has to be the Sass & Belle Botanical Jungle Cotton Tea Towel:


Sass & Belle Botanical Jungle Leaves Cotton Tea Towel

Covered from edge to edge in lush green leaves, tropical monstera, palms and striped calathea are layered up in a design that completely embodies the botanical trend. Perfect for adding a bit of summer to your kitchen!
