So tomorrow is a pretty big event when it comes to retail and online shops, as its black Friday. In the UK we never really experienced the craziness of slashed prices and big discounts on many items. Until recently, and as each year passes it is becoming bigger and bigger! I have wrote my list of things I am gifting people this year and tomorrow I will be checking to see if any of it is in the sale during the Black Friday deals.
At home we recently got a food mixer with a blender to make smoothies and we have been trying out all different recipes to keep us ticking over the winter months. A current new favourite is this red cabbage smoothie, its super quick and easy to make, especially for those mornings running out the door. It is also very nice to have a kitchen to photograph and which has two windows, letting lots of light in. The kitchen, although it has white cupboards, isn’t really to my taste! I have big plans for the kitchen but for the time being I might just change the worktops to plain white.
Now.. I could really do with some of these Korbo baskets! Aren’t they lovely in the new copper and brass material? Perfect for storing all sorts. Just now I need a solution to store all the outdoor shoes at the back door, but maybe these are to nice to be used for mucky winter shoes.
With Christmas just around the corner, I have been trying to get organised, so I am not frantically running around trying to tick many things off the to do list.. With this in mind, I have been collecting lots of different ceramics and serve ware, because I will be hosting Christmas dinner at our home this year. I have cooked for the past four years and I always run out my ‘nice’ serve ware, especially bowls for people to help themselves with at the centre of the table.
This year I needn’t worry, as I have teamed up with Good Earth and sourced some unique pieces to add to my collection helping me entertain in style. My particular favourite is the Kansa dinner plate, although its large enough to use as a serving tray or even to showcase a dessert and the rest will marry in well with the my other dishes and serve ware I own. I don’t really like things to match, more like match in colours and always add some green to your table.
