Gorgeous Greys – the latest trend for 2020 Weddings


After a long colourless winter, we all yearn for warmth and colour! Antique blues, shades of grey, bright papaya, and super cinnamon rose come together for this soft & natural palette of steely mellow hues. Just like the gentle refreshment of a rainy spring day … and the joy that arrives when the warm sun comes back out to shine. Every Spring is as exciting as the last and with this stunning modern colour palette comes a breath of fresh air with its happy but mature hues. We particularly like the hints of grey on the table runners & napkins which add a distinct air of sophistication.

Thanksgiving is just a few days away & whilst we don’t all celebrate here in Blighty, there’s some great ideas around the day that would work at any time during the winter run up to festivities.

If you’re thinking of hosting a thanksgiving type dinner (and why wouldn’t you?) now is the perfect time to make the most of time with friends & family, cozied up inside on a dark winters night.
Welcome your guests with a glass of fizz, maybe Prosecco with a dash of damson gin or a warming mulled wine or fruit punch.
A complete dinner may include fresh free-range turkey, numerous delicious veggie side dishes and apple cranberry crisp or pumpkin pie for dessert.
Don’t forget the wines to pair with your meal – A sumptuous warming red or a cool crisp white – the choice is yours!
