Easter, a long lunch

By Thursday, April 2, 2015

I absolutely love Easter. I especially love cooking a big Easter lunch for family and friends, it is something I look forward to and I think is really fun to do. I set the table the night before for breakfast using my cabbage cups and saucers with the matching plates, of course. I always have a little Easter egg on each persons setting ...

  • Easter, gift giving

    By Wednesday, April 1, 2015

    One of my favourite things to do at Easter time, other than consume one too many chocolate bunnies, is to decorate the home of course! The few days off, the big lunches, the easter egg hunts and the gift giving - all perfect occasions to get the family together and celebrate. And you know me - if there is a ...

  • Easter, glamping

    By Tuesday, March 31, 2015

    With the easter break and end of school term looming our days to organise a little getaway are numbered. Perfect time for a a sweet little camping trip I think. Or should I say glamping! To be totally honest I’m not sure my traditional camping skills are up to scratch, if I have any at all. I mean sure, lazing about in a ...

    Episode Six starts on one of Melbourne's most exciting day of the year - the AFL Grand Final. The Big Group have been holding a function in the September Club which is a corporate entertaining area for approximately 5000 guests to use before the game begins and also becomes an after party after the game for the last couple of years.

  • Ferns, for the indoors

    By Friday, March 27, 2015

    Next week is leading up to Easter and I am really excited about how Ferns will be a part of my festive decor. I am not even going to start on how fast the year has gone by already...Easter already?! This year my theme is all about eggs, bunnies, nests and plants and I plan on using various vases and cloches ...

  • Ferns, on the table

    By Thursday, March 26, 2015

    Sometimes when I have friends over and can't find that perfect table centrepiece (you know you got to have one!) I go to my favourite trick of using ferns. There is no reason the plants you have to decorate your home cant be pulled onto the dining table and sometimes you just need to mix things up a little and ...

  • Ferns, gorman

    By Wednesday, March 25, 2015

    Gorman have nailed it this season with their Greenhouse Range which features an assortment of fern prints - I just love them! Sure - they area little out there but in true gorman style - they have just the right amount of kookiness and cool. Lisa Gorman is fantastic Australian designer that never fails to bring a smile to my ...

  • Ferns

    By Tuesday, March 24, 2015

    I love having fresh flowers at home ever week but as we all know, that can get expensive. The bright green of fish ferns and maiden hair ferns have given me a great way to achieve the same feel of fresh flowers but with a little twist. I have them potted all about the house and at this time of ...

  • Real Housewives of Melbourne, Episode Five

    By Monday, March 23, 2015

    I do love a Mother and Son shopping day and Pettifleur certainly is the mother to shop with. Her and Nathan's shopping morning is very entertaining and the start of episode 5. Nathan is a lucky boy getting that beautiful new suit and it sure was entertaining to watch them put together his new look, I loved it. Next we have Gina ...

  • Orange, decor

    By Friday, March 20, 2015

    You may have noticed that my home is a little eclectic? It’s pretty jam packed with books and flowers and candles and layers and layers of collections. It is busy and interesting and I love it. Pops of orange in my home are few and far between but I do bring them in come autumn time because it is just ...

  • Orange, ingredients

    By Thursday, March 19, 2015

    The smell of oranges wafting through the house is such a gorgeous aroma, be it a burning candle or a boiling orange on the stove. Mix in a little cinnamon and spice and you’ve got autumn right there! There are so many great things you can make out of the humble orange, from freshly squeezed juices to beautifully dense syrupy ...
