Let's Play House by Rosanna
Petite Treat by Rosanna
Decor Bon Bon White by Rosanna
Several years ago I bought the cutest pale blue muffin tray and china cupcake cups in an array of pastel colours from the "Let's Play House" collection by Rosanna and I have been a fan ever since!

Rosanna is named after American creator Rosanna Bowles, who has a passion for tableware. Oh, and boy does it show! She designs the most exquisite dishes which turn any and every day meal times into a special occasion. My favourite ranges from her are "Gelato" and "Decor Bon Bon", with a fresh modern take on some 1950's vintage classics all in a range of faded sorbet colours.

Yipee! It is that time of year again when all the new Autumn/Winter catalogs launch online: so much inspiration at once! Here I share with you one of my favorites, Pip Studio, a Dutch design company based in Amsterdam selling bed and bath collections, stationery, cushions, tablecloths and of course lots of porcelain.

On my wish list is the gorgeous cross stitch tablecloth above in stone and white with a blue and white gingham border edged with a cotton crochet lace. Oh, and I would love some of their pretty bird print porcelain to serve cupcakes on.

Sweet Paul

Frozen Flowers by Sweet Paul
Back in January I did a post about the wonderful prop stylist, Paul Lowe. I love Paul's styling as I find it very sweet, delicate and charming as well as being very clean and simple in approach. Well, imagine my joy when I discovered he had launched an online magazine called Sweet Paul. It is full of his gorgeous styling along with craft ideas like the gorgeous Frozen Flowers which would look amazing at a garden party, or the drinks umbrellas which you could make in a print to match your tableware. The magazine is also packed full of gorgeous recipes and tips on styling.

Hampton Court Palace Flower Show 2010

Tea & cakes in the Garden
Hampton Court Flower Show 2010
Vintage Plate Water feature
Fairy Pretty

Today I visited the Hampton Court Palace Flower Show. It is the largest flower show in England, held annually in the beautiful grounds of the Long Water in Hampton Court Park, Surrey by the Royal Horticultural Society. It differs from the most prestigious flower show, the Chelsea Flower Show, by focusing more on environmental issues, grow-your-own and cookery, but of course it also includes lots of inspirational show gardens.

It was full of wonderful ideas for creating outdoor living spaces, which I was particularly interested in looking at to get ideas for my outdoor living room. Above are some of my highlights, with more to come soon...

In the market place I treated myself to two lovely vintage weathered bird cages to put in my outdoor living room.

Have a sweet Day!
