Laguiole Cheese Knife

With a wedge of blue cheese and some homemade oat biscuits this would make the perfect gift for a cheese lover.
Available in pearly blue, green, ivory, red or black, they add a touch of glamour to your cheeseboard, are dishwasher safe and come from a top manufacturer in France.

Laguiole Butter Knife

I bought a few of these gorgeous little butter knives for gifts.  They are the perfect price and size for taking to a dinner party as a hostess gift or for adding to some other treats – maybe a matching cheese knife or even a block of Lewis Road Creamery Butter.

These Laguiole knives are from Coutellerie Neron, considered one of the best knife manufacturers in France. Each item includes an authenticity certificate and is dishwasher safe (top drawer).

Colour range is red, blue, ivory, green and black.


Mosaic Plates

I just discovered these stunning mosaic plates from Pols Potten. Beautifully hand painted, these ceramic plates come with matching bowls if you like or you can contrast with another pattern.
Check out also the Hippy patterned plates and bowls.
Not sure which ones I like best actually, what do you think?

Set of 4

Washed Blue Napkins and Tablecloth

On a whim I purchased these washed blue napkins with the tablecloth to go with them – quite an odd decision as we almost only ever use a tablecloth at Christmas.
I love the colour though, almost turquoise and such a complimentary colour to terracotta and rustic tableware.

Napkins come in a packet of 4 and are 50cm sq

Beehive Glass Drink Dispenser

Is this not the cutest drink dispenser out there?
I am imagining summer parties and loads of ice cold lemonade…

The dispenser comes with the stand and holds 8 Litres,
dimensons are 19.5cm x 22.5cm x 29.3cm

Check them out (plus a whole lot more) at Pop Roc Parties!

Bamboo Fruit Basket

Sometimes things just pop into my inbox that make me look twice and these bamboo fruit baskets are exactly that.
This collapsible apple shaped bamboo fruit basket is spiral-cut so if you want to collapse it to use as a trivet or to store away then you can flatten it out.

Discovered on a NZ website that is well worth a look – their glass candy jet planes are so cute…
