SUMMER EXPRESSIONS

Choosing and using unusual containers is a matter of personal taste. I used cake tins as striking planters to help create a stylish metal-piece display with cacti of different varieties. Taking a look at everyday objects, like cake tins and tin cans, gives you ideas for indoor house plant arrangements. Experimenting sometimes, with old or discarded items, can give a new lease of life to them, as unusual plant containers. Here I grouped our cacti collection by filling the cake tin top with coloured pebbles & used other matching metallic finish objects, to make the table top attractive, thus creating a good summer display.

Perfect for the Celebration - Bon Appetite

Coming together to share a meal on a dining area is one of life's simplest pleasures. It's more wonderful when you do it with a beautiful table scape on a festive celebration like Easter with your loved ones. In gathering around a table we voluntarily make time to slow down and connect with each other. Whether it is for dinner or brunch, with a bunch of friends or for an intimate two, it automatically sets the tempo, for some "us" time. The ritual of breaking bread with one another, reminds of our enduring symbol of bonding. No wonder, a lot has been said about a family that eats together stays together. To eat well is to live well, rings true even today.

Happy Easter

GREEN TEA TALK

What makes green tea special is the fact that it is a universally consumed beverage across the world in a variety of forms. While some like it chilled, the others love it sizzling hot. Green tea can really work wonders in detoxing. I was left to set a beautiful table  with a amazing Chinese kettle, white Daisy and a beautiful green coloured swan bowl.
