England's green and pleasant land
England’s green and pleasant land
We’re feeling Quintessentially English this week - I’m sure you wouldn’t expect anything less, given it’s St George’s Day on Tuesday. Quintessentially English for us means; English gardens, picnics on the river, scenic countryside and freshly baked scones with Hugh Grant! These scenes of England are never far from our thoughts when we are designing new products.
So today we are highlighting some quintessentially English products from our range, ones we think have a bit of a St George’s Day feel about them, hope you think so too:
Check out our new stripy deckchair - a very English design and great for lounging in the garden or picnicking on the beach. As you’d expect, it folds flat and can be thrown into the boot of your car.
With this warmer weather creeping upon us, treat yourself to breakfast in the garden and enjoy freshly squeezed juice from a traditional hand juicer for the perfect luxury of homemade morning orange juice.
Admittedly more Cate Blanchett than Hugh Grant but we feel the trug has a lot of English-cool about it … charming when filled with flowers and irresistible when filled with homegrown vegetables, they are actually a very useful accessory to have around.
We think it’s beyond question that St George loved a boiled egg for his breakfast and so our egg baskets in a range of neutrally based heritage colours couldn’t be a better choice, or try our new egg holder.
Given the unpredictable British weather, keep a step ahead with barometers and thermometers, the perfect accessories for garden fun.
Now, St George’s day wouldn’t be the same without sharing a cup of tea and a plate of scones with friends and family. One of our handy canisters sitting alongside a two-tiered cake stands will add perfect English vintage charm to any dining table … and store your leftovers in a cake tin, perfect for keeping them fresh.
