We also spent our evenings playing cards, listening to the crickets and eating bread and camembert.
I’m certainly feeling the long hot summer nights. I’ve just been to The South of France in a little town on L’Ardeche river. I spent most of it in a hammock! There’s super cool luxury hammocks and summer seats at HomeSense this week.
Have a wonderful summer of love!
And happy wedding bells to my friend Laura xx
Wedding treats with a difference
Ooooh I know it is nothing to do with homeware but I love it!
Wedding gifts with ding dong. Check out our website at HomeSense.com
There are hundreds of wedding presents with a difference at HomeSense.
We don’t want you to give the gift everyone else is giving.
I’m a fan of simplicity for an invite.
So with all these weddings this summer, what is the etiquette on buying a pressie?
There’s something not quite right about giving cash, however they don’t want to end up with five magimixes.
So what should you give to thrill the bride and groom?
I recently got engaged and lots of my friends are getting married this year.
There must be something in the air!
Outdoor living is becoming ever more comfortable. Instead of knee-grazing bistro tables and spindly metal seats, think woven furniture and terrace cushions.
Eating outside has never been so fun. Take inspiration from Brideshead Revisited and Jane Austen classics. You can find unusual outdoor furniture and picnicware at HomeSense at up to 60% less. Make your garden unique this Summer.
I had lunch in the garden today too. This picture reminds me of my favourite hotel where they know how to eat ‘en plein air’ in style. The tasteful simplicity is what makes La Colombe D’Or one of the best destinations.
Yesterday I was discussing the flowers that I want for my wedding (I’m getting married next March and already planning the flowers). I think this an adorable idea for displaying flowers. I think I would rather they were on the tables in odd old washed out bottles though. Love the eccentricity. Did you know that Homesense has over 100 styles of vase instore?
