    Fall Into Autumn

    Fall Into Autumn

    The trees are turning, the nights are drawing in, Autumn is making it's mark and October has officially arrived. We know, we can't quite believe it either. Where did the summer go?!

    But there are so many perks of the colder seasons coming in. Cosy jumpers, the many hot drinks and hot desserts like mulled cider and apple crumble, wrapped up walks in crunchy leaves, and of course the various celebrations that take place. So in this blog post, we're getting stuck into the spirit of Autumn with all of these gorgeous goodies from Emma Bridgewater, who always know how to do it.

    Autumn Crocuses, the great Oak tree range and the Into The Woods range are all perfect for autumn. We particularly love those gorgeous golden orange colours on the Into The Woods mugs with creatures that you can spot on your autumn walks amongst the fallen leaves.

    We recently had a harvest moon, and of course there's a mug for that. Plus the village fireworks mug which is an ode to Bonfire night and the 5th of November. Aren't they lovely?

    Then there's one of the first events of the colder seasons, Halloween. The themed products around this celebration are always fun and this year did not disappoint. Us Daisy Parkers have each got a set of our own that we're using non-stop in the run up to the 31st!

    Despite summer coming to an end, there are many joys that come with the colder season, and looking at these treats makes us feel really quite excited, so we hope the same happens for you.

    Thinking of You Week

    Thinking of You Week

    Today is the last day of what has been Thinking of You Week 2021. Started by the Greetings Card Association, the aim of the week is to encourage everyone to simply spread some love and positivity simply through writing a card.

    Greetings cards are part of what makes us here at Daisy Park, so we love getting involved in this campaign every year. Sometimes they get overlooked, but a cute card with a handwritten, sentimental message inside is usually more than enough to make someone's day. So if you feel inspired, here's a few of our favourite cards and other bits that you can deliver to someone special, or pop in the post to a loved one across the miles.

    If you feel like popping a little something else into the card, an East of India trinket is the perfect little keepsake gift to give an extra boost of sentiment and all round positivity. The hanging hearts are flat and not too big so can slot into cards quite neatly, plus there's a huge variety of phrases on them to suit everyone.

    Sometimes it's nice to send someone some love without a real reason. No birthday or other event, just a reminder of how special they are to you. Take this, and Thinking of You Week in general, as your reminder to give it a go. Find a gorgeously designed card, maybe even a sweet trinket, and write a friend, family member or whoever it might be, a nice little note today. You're welcome!

    Bright New Gorgeousness

    Bright New Gorgeousness

    With Autumn slowly creeping it's way in some of us might be feeling apprehensive about the new season starting and summer ending. We're sure we're not the only ones asking where it all went?

    We love the colder months and all that comes with them here at Daisy Park, but we'll definitely miss the summer whilst it's gone. What we need is something bright and beautiful that will remind us of summer all year round. Something like cushions to bring colour to the sofa, or see as soon as you walk through the door. Something like new goodies from Bombay Duck!

    These new cushions are simply gorgeous, don't you think? Bright colours, flamboyant pom-poms and intricate stitching details all over they really are happiness in the form of homeware. They've certainly helped to refresh the shop a bit so we're sure they'll be bound to bring some sunshine back into your home, too.

    The rainbow doormat is another new favourite of ours. As it's one of the first things you see when you visit someone's home, this fabulous piece would be sure to provide an uplifting, happy vibe. This would make for a great housewarming present if you want to move away from the more traditional gifts like candles or mugs. It's not always something we might think of to buy for our homes, so treating someone to one like this will be the gift they didn't know they needed.

    So whether it's a gift for someone special, or a treat for yourself, these hand-worked, 100% cotton cushions will be sure to bring personality to your home for years to come.

    New Emma Bridgewater Autumn!

    New Emma Bridgewater Autumn!

    The days are getting cooler and the leaves on trees are beginning to change colour...

    As summer is drawing to a close and Autumn creeps in, this can mean only one thing. A new collection from Emma Bridgwater of course! This one is as gorgeous as ever, and features green leaves of the great Oak tree. We think the pieces in this range would be perfect for hosting friends or family for a cosy evening in with a roast dinner or cottage pie, or any autumnal meal that takes your fancy. You could match it with the In the Woods ranges, or perhaps the Apples design from the Veg Garden range.

    Then there's the Halloween collections. These include a fabulously bewitching Magic & Spells orange coloured range, creepy crawlies, the popular Trick or Treat cobweb design from last year, and a few others that will be perfect to use in the month of terrific terror. You might already have the treat buckets that have been hugely popular this year, along with some of the glorious napkins that would complete a scarily good table spread for a Halloween feast for all.

    After a not-so hot summer, we're feeling surprisingly quite ready to embrace Autumn here at Daisy Park. Just think of all the delights that come with it: crunchy leaves, hot apple crumbles, pumpkin carving and sparklers around fires, there's a lot to look forward to.

    What's New at Daisy Park

    What's New at Daisy Park

    Almost every week at Daisy Park there are boxes of goodies in all shapes and sizes arriving into store. It's always exciting when we get one containing new goodies because it feels a little bit like receiving a present, we love it.

    Recently we've had some scrumptious new bits and bobs trickling in and we like to keep our customers in the loop, so we thought we'd introduce you to some of them. For example, there's been some gorgeous candle trays from Pip Studio arrive, which we think would complete a dinner table perfectly by adding a touch of sophistication. Pair them with the beautifully grand candle stick holders we already have, and your table spread will be looking fit for a queen.

    Also in the home décor department is a delivery of Austin Sloan that's recently come in, with lots of signs both new and old. Here are a few of our favourites, including this Handwashing one because it's definitely been an important one this past year or so!

    We LOVE stationery here at Daisy Park. Particularly the kind of product that makes you realise you didn't know you needed it until you saw it, at which point, you simply must have it, of course. Password books are one of these products for us, so these fabulous new mini ones from a fellow small business are new favourites here. If you're forever having to click on the 'forgot password' button then these might just be a life saver for you. They'd also make great stocking filler gifts but we'll try not to talk about that time of year just yet...

    Jellycat toys never fail to provoke laughter when customers pass them in the shop. We love them too, so getting new little characters in every so often is always a joy. Some new friends in the gang include the Fabulous Fruit Blueberry, Amusable Broccoli, some adorable little backpacks, and a Bewitching Cat which would look fab next to a pumpkin this Halloween.

     

    We're always getting new cards in, to the point where we've practically got them coming out of our ears. Paper Salad are a recent new favourite of ours due to their brightly coloured, fun cards that catch the eye immediately, so we've been gradually getting more in over time. We also have some beautiful new cards from Artfile, with countryside settings on or 1920's inspired luxurious designs, there's even some fab pop-up cards.

    All of these lovely goodies are just some of our current new favourites in Daisy Park right now. But we've got plenty more coming over the next month or so, with a seasonal change pending and thus a whole new period of festivities to look forward to. This of course means lots of big new launches from the likes of Emma Bridgewater, Gisela Graham, Jellycat and more, so stay tuned for these newbies. You can keep up to date on what we've got coming here on the blog, by signing up to our newsletters, or by following us on Facebook or Instagram where we're always posting about our antics!
