Halloween is this Saturday! Here’s how to throw a themed drinks party without a plastic ornament in sight. In fact, you won’t even need to carve a pumpkin.

If you visit a supermarket this week, you’ll be confronted with a sea of Halloween decorations in classic colours: orange, black, deep purple and green. This colour palette was the inspiration for this post…but instead of stocking up on plastic props, I created a spooky party spread using lots of natural ornaments. Read on for tips on hosting your own rustic, sophisticated and perfectly seasonal party. Continue reading

One Humpday Post about Autumn colours is not enough! How could I resist the amazingly saturated red of these gorgeous berries? Stay tuned for tomorrow’s blog post – they feature prominently.

Off With Their Heads! Creating Tablescapes with Colourful Cut Flowers.

2015_10_12-JennisTable-flower-deco-05

You don’t need a giant bouquet to create a striking floral centrepiece. Pluck the heads off simple supermarket flowers and you’re good to go!

Last month, for my mother’s birthday party, I created a floral table runner constructed entirely of flower heads strewn along a white tablecloth. It was simple to assemble but looked so cheerful and striking, and contrary to what you might think, the flowers lasted for weeks afterwards. For today’s post I’ll be recreating the tablescape for you, as well as using the same flowers to demonstrate four more ways to use your flowertops (and how to preserve them afterwards).

2015_10_05-JennisTable-autumn-porridge-31

Autumn has been creeping up on us for a while now, but it’s not all drizzle and gloom! It’s finally porridge weather!

The days are darker and the evenings chillier, and I’m sure I’m not the only one reaching for cozy food to counteract the cold. But why stop at a quick breakfast on a weekday morning? Why not throw a Weekend Breakfast Party, and invite friends over for a colourful, creamy, crunchy, fruity feast?  With a helping hand from cheerful tableware, it’s a sure-fire way to inject joy into these grey-skied days.
