I hope like me you’ve been able to enjoy the many days of glorious sunshine we’ve basked in over the last couple of months. My family and I have spent some
wonderful days walking through the countryside of Dorset and Cornwall enthralled by the stunning scenery, admiring the colours and textures in
nature, and watching the blackberries appearing in the hedgerows. We’ve spotted birds prey of soaring on thermals, butterflies flitting over wildflowers and
brave little rabbits venturing out of their holes when they think no one is looking!
And as the late summer harvest approaches wouldn’t it be wonderful to take some of these lovely things home with you and savour them for just a little
longer? Well thankfully you can in the form of the gorgeous flora and fauna inspired dining-ware available in store and online. Cream Cornwall
www.creamcornwall.co.uk have a beautiful collection called Game & Garden which is their own “eccentric take on the Cornish country estate”. Their
range of dining plates and bowls feature foxes, hares and pheasants, “their hand drawn vignettes combine game and garden…perfect for bringing a little
bit of country life into your home.” From £8.50 for a nibbles bowl this range is stylish and affordable.
