    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.

    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.

    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!
