    Summer Florals

    Summer Florals

    Here in South Molton in lovely North Devon we’ve got the summer season event of ‘South Molton in Bloom’ getting underway. Businesses around the town contribute and it means that beautiful bright flowers can be seen all around the square and elsewhere. We love it so much that we thought we’d theme this weeks blog post on all things floral to celebrate one of our favourite times of the year.

     

    Emma Bridgewaters newest floral range is certainly one that has a place here. We love it, particularly the sunflower tray which is just so bright and sunny. Plus the mini tins which are super sweet and can be used to store little bits and bobs, or used as part of a gift stuffed with some sweets. Then there’s also the brand new calendars. We know it’s only July but we’re already getting ready for next year, and thanks to their gorgeous design they even fit in with the floral theme too.

     

    Pip studio goodies are always bright and colourful much like seasonal flowers, especially the Blushing Birds ranges. Available in reds, yellows, blues pinks or khakis, there’s plenty to choose from to suit all tastes and add a touch of vibrancy to your home this summer. Even if it’s just for decoration such as using a mug to keep pens or makeup brushes in.

     

     

    Gisela Graham mugs are such lovely mugs to have in the home or give as gifts. The sunflower mini mug & jug is the cutest little set and matches really well with all of the other lovely flowery goodies. If you’re a lover of sunflowers and have some growing in your own garden, these might be perfect for a cuppa whilst you give them some TLC.

     

    Finally, although not necessarily floral in design, Hinza bags are such a great accompaniment to any flower or garden theme as they’re so useful for either storing gardening tools or making a quirky alternative to a plant pot. We think they look fabulous with some flowers in!

     

    We do love a bright window, and right now our display is certainly looking that way, with all of these tulips, sunflowers and more, plus all of the lovely flowers all over town, its really looking quite gorgeous at the moment, just what we’ve all needed!

    New Goodies Galore

    New Goodies Galore

    Here in the shop we've had lots of gorgeous new goodies arriving since opening up that we simply couldn't resist showing you. Including diaries, tins and jewellery, along with adding to our slowly growing collection of sustainable products such as Chilly's reusable water bottles, there's lots of lovely newness, so read on to get updated.

    The new Emma Bridgewater tins have been very popular since they came in earlier in the month. Their bright, floral designs are perfect for the upcoming summer season for storing all of your baked treats in.

    We've been wanting to stock Chilly's bottles for a long time now so to finally have them is super exciting to us. Of course we had to get the Emma Bridgewater designs in, but if you're not a fan of patterns there's plenty of sleek, bright block colour choices instead. These guys are the originals when it comes to insulated bottles, so you can be assured that your cold drinks will stay cold for 24 hours and hot for 12. Plus it's another way to cut out a little bit of plastic and therefore help the environment which is always a good thing.

     

    On the topic of sustainability, our other most recent addition is beeswax wraps. These can be used instead of plastic alternatives such as clingfilm or plastic bags and apart from anything else, look fabulous as a part of your lunch. But they can also be used to store snacks, or keep things tidy in your fridge instead of endless plastic tubs. They wipe clean really easily too so they're super handy all round.

     

    One thing people often forget that we sell is jewellery, and we've recently had some gorgeous new pieces come in too. We're lucky enough to stock the ever-so stylish brand One & Eight, known for it's minimalistic, coastal-inspired, premium quality jewellery that we just love. They're a local, sustainable company and all of the items come in either mini glass bottles or sleek metal tins so they look fabulous as gifts.

    These are just some of the wonderful new bits we've had into the shop recently. There's also been new diaries from the company Busy B, new home décor treats from Gisela Graham, and new cards and gift wrap from Paper Salad plus much more. But we'd be here all day if we went on! So for now here's a taster of some of our favourites and we'll leave the rest to you if you want to have a little explore. You can start in the 'new goodies' section of our website, which you can find by clicking here, or just browse whatever takes your fancy yourself.

    New Home Treats

    New Home Treats

    If there's one thing this pandemic has done, it's that it's made us far more aware of our surroundings. Whether it's sparked a new found love for the beauty of where we live, or provoked a realisation that perhaps it's time for somewhere new, it's probably impacted us all in some way. And with that, it would seem that many of us are making moves to new homes and new areas perhaps more than ever.

    Sound familiar to you? Well, if you know someone who has just moved house or is just about to, here is the blog post you might need to give some inspiration on what gift to get them. Throw in a card and you're good to go.

    Trays

    It can sometimes be difficult to know what homeware to get someone if perhaps they have a specific style or already have plenty of mugs, plates and dishes etc. But often a good tray can go overlooked and there are some really gorgeous ones available. Take the Asta Barrington ones for example, which are bright and beautiful and you can even choose one with their favourite drink or phrase on if you like. Or there's the Emma Bridgewater trays for those who love the classic country look, these are practical gifts too as they're a good size and sturdy.

    Tins

    Sticking to alternative homeware, tins are another brilliant option. Not only are they really useful (you can never have enough tins, right?), but again, there are also some really lovely designs out there - the Emma Bridgewater ones being an obvious choice. You can fill them with goodies to add to the gift too, for example getting some luxury crackers and popping them in a cracker tin, or filling a biscuit barrel with their favourites.

    Candles

    A common gift choice for a new home, but for a good reason. A good quality, delightful smelling candle can be a real treat as a gift. You could opt for the Country Candles New Home candle to mark the occasion, or instead go for their favourite scent, or a reed diffuser from St Eval that they can easily spruce up an empty shelf with.

    Austin Sloan Signs

    For those whose homes follow a more rustic theme and who like a bit of humour, an Austin Sloan sign will always go down well. They can be hung in any part of the house or garden, and are a great way to bring some extra personality to the place.

    East of India

    It wouldn't be a special occasion without some sentiment from East of India. If it's just a small token you want to give, or a little extra piece to add to the main present, a trinket might be perfect.

    Gift Vouchers

    If you're still feeling like they already have everything they need, or you're not sure on their style yet, sometimes a gift voucher is the best you can give. That way they can save it for when they might need it, or choose something they've had their eye on for a while.

    Cards

    And finally, you can't forget a card! The Emma Bridgewater one is one of our all time best-selling cards, so naturally had to get a mention, and it really is lovely. But there are other options too and all are gorgeous. Now your gift is complete!
