Cable & cotton fairy lights in my favourite colours

I’m a huge fan of Cable & Cotton lights and they were top of my Christmas wish list last year so I was delighted to receive a set of them in my favourite pastel pink & blue colours from my daughter.  Here’s  a couple of pics of them featuring  in my living room last Christmas & New Year. After the festive season I kept them on my mantelpiece for a few months as these lights are definitely not just for…

Laura Ashley The Belsfield Hotel

Now everyone knows how much I love Laura Ashley as a brand and I’m also partial to  a luxury hotel mini break so when I got the chance to go and stay in the beautiful Laura Ashley hotel The Belsfield  I quite literally jumped at it! My husband had a week off work when the hotel had availability so we booked flights to Liverpool from Belfast and hired a car to drive to the gorgeous Lake District. The Belsfield is…

Harvey Norman Boucher Road Belfast

I was invited down to the beautiful Harvey Norman store on the Boucher Road in Belfast to meet their  lovely PR manager Jenny and have a look round all their collections. I had been previously for a look at their Voyage range of soft furnishings but didn’t have a lot of time to look around on that occasion so this was a real pleasure to spend time with Jenny and meet some other staff members whilst looking at all the…

When Sophie Allport very kindly sent me out a selection of their Rose & Butterfly china and asked me to style up a little afternoon tea party with it I was delighted as this beautiful china is right up my street with its dainty little rose and butterfly designs in my favourite pastel colours of  pink and blue.  The teacups are a perfect size and I love how the designs feature inside the cup too with a tiny little rosebud…

Botanical afternoon tea with Portmeirion UK

When I was asked by the lovely people at Portmeirion UK to style up an afternoon tea featuring their beautiful Botanic Garden range  I was delighted as everyone knows how much I love my florals!  The iconic Botanic Garden designs are instantly recognisable with their green borders and vibrant botanical details. The range features a variety of floral illustrations adapted from Thomas Green’s Universal or-Botanical, Medical and Agricultural Dictionary (1817)  and the botanical detail in each piece is wonderful! Featuring…

Redcastle mini break ?>

Redcastle mini break

I’ve previously blogged about staying in the beautiful Quigley Suite at Redcastle Hotel in County Donegal and how much I love it so I was delighted when hubby said he’d booked us in again for a little mini break.  As it’s only an hour and a half drive from where we live it’s ideal for a short break without having to book flights etc. I packed some magazines and my kindle along with candles and some homemade macarons as we…

Biscuiteers Butterfly Biscuits

I’m a huge fan of Biscuiteers and had previously ordered their gorgeous little pink duck biscuits for my daughter Rebecca’s baby shower last year so I was delighted when they sent me their  Butterfly box of biscuits to incorporate into a vintage tea party. Each biscuit is a little handcrafted work of art and they definitely add a touch of class to any special event. The biscuits come in a beautiful presentation tin which is lovely to keep long after the biscuits…
