Ferm Living Spring 2012

Ferm Living Spring 2012

Today on label love I wanted to show you the gorgeous new treasures from another of my favourite interior brands, Ferm Living. I am loving the pretty chic colour palette of rose pink and shades of mint and teal. The signature geometric print looks great on trays, cushions and ceramics. The whimsical wallpapers look fresh and new, and the display boxes in an array of colours look great on the dove grey wall. I am coveting said display boxes and the stackable jars.

Cloudberry Living in the UK stocks a a large choice of Ferm Living, from wallpapers and cushions to the cute house wall shelves and knitted vases.

Here's how the gorgeous collection looked at the Top Drawer interior show this week.

Last year my little sister got engaged and has asked me to be her wedding planner. What an honour! I, of course, accepted gleefully. Over the next year she has agreed to let me show you our inspiration; a few of the crafts and recipes we will be preparing for her special day. I shall of course show you all the details of the day afterwards!

First up, I wanted to share with you the much anticipated Vintage Wedding Fair, with 1940s singers and vintage updos, which is happening next month in Milton Keynes. Set in a quirky 14th century barn and organized by the fabulously adorable Mrs Scoops and Little Miss G, the event is sure to be stylish, fun and useful.

What can you expect? Well, to start with there will be Betty, the fifties styled ice cream van, from Mrs Scoops, who brings retro style and delicious ice cream to your event from pretty bunting-adorned Betty! The talented Nevie Pie Cakes, whose unique cakes are just too adorable for words. For all your Wedding stationery needs there's Vicky Trainor, whose vintage range is full of the most beautiful embroidered, appliqued invitations, table numbers and seating arrangement plans. For vintage crockery hire there's Magpie, who has a large selection of the prettiest crockery in a range of colours to suit all themes along with cut glass candle holders, glass bottles and linens.

On the fashion front there's beautifully stylish wedding dresses from London's leading bridal designer, Johanna Hehir. Oh, and on our must see list there's Poppy, whose illustrated bridesmaids dresses come with their own story book!

We can't wait to go!

Today on label love I wanted to show you the gorgeous new treasures from another of my favourite interior brands, Miss Etoile. I am in love with the gorgeous candy coloured paper blooms in the Spring/Summer 2012 catalogue.

Chocolate snowflake mousse

Chocolate snowflake mousse by Torie Jayne

A few weeks back my sister and I made some delicious chocolate mousse that went down a treat! To fit in with my colour scheme on my Winter Wonderland dessert table I made aqua chocolate snowflakes filled with a rich, velvety chocolate mousse. I will definitely have to make these again, maybe in pretty egg form for Easter!

Chocolate snowflake mousse (makes 6 snowflakes)

Ingredients


Snowflake mould



Cooking instructions

  • Melt white chocolate and stir in food colouring.
  • Pour coloured white chocolate into moulds and, using a brush, coat sides of moulds in chocolate and leave to set.
  • Place cream in a bowl with a pinch of caster sugar and whip until soft peaks form.
  • Melt 200g of dark chocolate in the microwave on a low heat or in a double boiler on the hob, continuously stirring so as not to overheat.
  • Stir melted chocolate into whipped cream until you have an even coloured mousse.
  • Spoon mousse into chocolate coated snowflake moulds and place in fridge to firm.
  • Melt remaining 100g of dark chocolate and coat the top of the mousse with dark chocolate to seal in mousse.
  • Place in fridge to set.
  • Turn out snowflake filled moulds just before serving.

The new Spring/Summer 2012 catalogue is full of so much eye candy, from the cute pastel coloured birdcages, to the perfectly pretty printed glass jars, to the array of beautiful patterned tea towels. There are, of course, the usual to-die-for cake stands in ornate glass and metal, and boudoir inspired glass perfume bottles.
