    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.

    Fathers Day Gift Guide

    Fathers Day Gift Guide

    On Sunday 20th June the day that we celebrate all the dads and father-figures in our lives will be here again and hopefully one to remember as we'll all be able to actually spend it with them once again. However we do feel it's important to say that if this time of year is a difficult one for you, please feel free to click off this blog post. We have other blog posts you can read through, or simply have a little browse on our website. Either way, we understand, so do what's best for you.

    First and foremost we're so excited about stocking Chilly's bottles that we've just got to include them! These are a practical gift with an added touch of luxury that would be ideal for the man who loves the outdoors. If he's already got a reusable water bottle, then alternatively you could always gift him one of the insulated food pots so he can take breakfast on the go wherever he's headed.

    One thing you can never go wrong with is a good mug. By now most of you will know that we've always got an Emma Bridgewater mug for every occasion, and Father's day is no exception. Whether it's one of the lovely Dad mugs or perhaps one simply with his favourite animal or scene on, we're sure he'll be pleased.

    Is the special man in your life a busy one? If he's someone who spends a lot of time at the office (even if that's at home nowadays), stationery is great for being a gift that's useful but still oozes style and a personal touch. The Voyager journals are exactly this, with their sleek design and handy refills, as are the Bookaroo notebooks with the bonus of all their accessories to add to it.

    Now for a product for those who own that typical man cave. Whether it's a simple shed or a full-blown hideout, make it complete with one of these fab signs from Austin Sloan, or a bottle opener for when he's snuck out there for a peaceful beer on a Friday evening. These are also great for dads with a good sense of humour.

    The Asta Barrington Beer tray might be another one for the man cave to serve beers or other drink choices on. Or it would even look brilliant just as a decorative display of love for his favourite drink.

    Gisela Graham's mini mugs and jugs are always popular in our shop. The novelty of their simple yet cute and fun designs always go down a treat as gifts. You could give the tools one for the garden lover, or perhaps a sailboat for the guy who loves the sea.

    Finally, it's always heart-warming to sprinkle a little bit of sentiment into a gift, and the same applies to dads, grandads and father-figures alike. As always, East of India is your most reliable choice here, with hanging hearts, coasters or trinkets that always seem to say the right thing. Pop one in with your gift for that final touch of love and we think your Fathers day gift might just be complete. Now all you need is a card..

    And for the cards, we have our usual array of gorgeous Emma Bridgewater designs, along with plenty of other playful or sentimental themes for every type of man out there.

    The Happy Edit

    The Happy Edit

    The wonderful thing about happiness is that it can come in many forms. Although it may be hard to find sometimes, if you look a little harder, it can often be found in even the simplest of things.

    Some things we find happiness in here at Daisy Park are: going through deliveries with lots of lovely new goodies in, wrapping gifts for loved ones on behalf of customers, and putting together a theme (actually we've always enjoyed that one). You may have previously seen some of our colour themed blog posts which we find so pleasing to do, and this time we've gone for a happiness theme because we all need as much of it as we can get rif. So here's our fabulous little happy edit of glorious bits and bobs put together to create a bright yellow, joyful little collection of treats.

    Isn't it gorgeous? We took inspiration from the beautiful Jamida tray and mugs designed by Asta Barrington because we just adore it. Then of course Jellycat just makes everything happier, don't you think? So we had to throw in the lovely sunshine yellow bunny and the snow drop and daffodil plants. The general colour theme ended up being yellow, because it just seems to be the happiest colour going and we love it.
    One company featured here that is another brilliant choice for spreading happiness has to be East of India. We talk about this brand a lot, particularly around sentimental gifts, because they're trinkets always know exactly what to say.

    All tied together with a beautifully bright yellow Hinza bag, which would spark a bit of joy in any outfit, and of course the gorgeous Jamida tray and mugs designed by Asta Barrington, the true stars of the show.

    So there we have it, a little chunk of joy in the form of a blog post. What brings you happiness during these tough times? All of our lovely products always bring us a bit of happiness when we're in the shop, so we hope some of them bring a bit of sparkle to your day too.

    The Mothers Day Gift Guide

    The Mothers Day Gift Guide

    Yes, we know, it seems a little early to be talking about Mothers day just yet when Valentine's day has only just passed. But March is drawing ever closer which means the special mum day will be creeping up on us in no time as it's a little earlier this year - Sunday 14th to be precise!

    So, for those of you who like to get organised early, or simply have a bit of extra online shopping time at the moment, we thought we'd give you some inspiration for what you could get the mother figure in your life.

    If in doubt, go for a mug

    Emma Bridgwater is a brand much loved by mums all over. So if you're not sure what to get your mum, you can never go wrong with one of their gorgeous mugs. Because who doesn't love a lovely new one to hold their hot drink of choice? Pair it with one of the brands cards to really bring the gift together for a true EB fan.

    Candles

    Whilst we're all stuck at home a lot more than normal times these days, candles are somewhat of a perfect gift we think. It's likely that it's going to get used and therefore appreciated more than perhaps it would usually, so giving a gift of a gloriously smelling home might just be an ideal one this year. Choose from Country Candles for cute tins, St Eval for natural, Earthy scents or Gisela Graham for candles with a bit of fun.

    Sublime Smellies

    Is there a better gift for a mum than a little bit of a pamper? Whether it's hand cream to soothe dry hands from constant washing, or a bar of luxury soap to enjoy in the shower, English Soap Company offer some goodies that will have your mum or mother figure feeling spoilt rotten.

    East of India

    Sometimes it's hard to put into words how much your mum might mean to you. So make it a little easier for yourself by letting East of India do the work! If you know Daisy Park well, you will have heard us speak about this brand countless times when it comes to gifts. They really have the perfect words for almost every occasion and they can add just the right amount of meaning, we love them.

    Don't forget a card!

    The final piece of the puzzle, the bit that brings the gift together; the card. A beautiful card can be just as enjoyable to open as a gift, in our opinion. So it's a good job we've got plenty of gorgeous cards for you to give this Mothers day. From Emma Bridgewater to Molly Mae, humour to heartfelt, there's a great selection for you to write your thanks and send your love in, even if it is just through the post this year.

     

    Fab New Trays & Mugs

    Fab New Trays & Mugs

    Although it can be stressful, hosting friends and family can be such a fun experience. Whether it be for Christmas, a birthday or simply just a get-together, they're often where we make some of the best memories. Not being able to have these for a year now is tough for all of us, but perhaps now we can start to think a little bit about planning them once more. It seems a bit risky, but maybe, just maybe, we can start to get a tiny bit excited about a future filled with good times again.

    One of the best parts of hosting people is getting all your best tableware out, don't you think? Even if it's just having a few friends over for a coffee and cake, it's simply a necessity to bring out your best tray. And wouldn't it be nice to have some lovely new pieces to showcase when we are finally able to do these things again? If you're interest has been sparked then look no further, new trays and mugs from Jamida designed by Asta Barrington are now in the shop and they are simply delightful.

    Bursting with bright colours and bold letters, there's a tray for every personality and every occasion. From the strong women in our lives who are all about the girl power (it's a firm fave here at this female-run business), to the men who love an opportunity to crack out a cold one. There's trays with your favourite tipples written on, or simply ones that spread a bit of positivity with your serving.

    And there's even new mugs too, in the 'Love' and 'Happy' designs so now you can have matching pieces for an even more pleasing aesthetic. Plus they're made of the finest quality bone china so you know they're good quality. We particularly love the vibrant yellow 'Happy' mugs for brightening up some of these dull winter days.

     

    All of this gorgeousness is making us dream of all the possibilities we could serve when we can finally host again... homemade cocktails on the 'happy hour' tray, celebratory bubbles on the 'Yay' tray for the start of a normal life again, we could go on and on. But we'll leave you to have a little daydream yourself!
