I’ve got just the ticket here in the shop. Well, it’s a metaphorical kind of ticket to the fantastic experience of using the beautifully decadent and more importantly very space saving iBride stackable plates and bowls. But not just stackable in the normal way of thinking, no, these jumble together to create a Japanese inspired urn when not in use, so there’s no more scrabbling around in under-used cupboards to find the plastic plates when the sun finally comes out as these can confidently be displayed year round on your kitchen counter or dresser.
And of course, being iBride, they are also adorned with delicate works of art so it’s almost a shame to put food on them at all. They take up minimal space in your hamper, leaving tons of room for a gorgeous linen cloth, piles of indulgent goodies and a good book. (Now I know it’s easy to pop into M&S for a ready made selection and a bottle of fizz, but if you CAN be bothered have a peek at the wonderful recipe books by Ottolenghi, particularly Plenty, and there is every kind of mouthwatering mezze concoction perfect for grazing throughout a lazy afternoon on the beach, the boat or even the garden at Glyndebourne). Made of high density melamine they are lightweight and durable and the small side plates even double as a frisbee if you forgot to pack one, so even the dog will be happy.
At last Betty is here.
Betty Linen collection by Bella Notte Linens.
Betty has arrived in gorgeous summer hues of Seaglass, Champagne and Petal. A gentle, old fashioned print, Betty encompasses all that belongs in Little House on the Prairie - whimsical patterns, pretty pastels and ruffles aplenty. Teamed with plains in Whisper Linen, Crochet Linen, Pennelope or Hendrix, Betty can be subtle, eclectic or glamorous, however the mood takes.
Mix with Olivia lace in Champagne for a touch of Grandma’s attic, Pennelope or Linen in Sable for an altogether more sultry approach, Loulah silk velvet for delicacy or decadence, (depending on the colour) or some gorgeous large pillows in the textured velvet Hendrix for a dash of sheer opulence.
The pretty bed in the shop is a mix of Betty in Champagne, Pennelope and Whisper Linen in Seaglass, Satin Venise in Sand, Loulah in Pebble, Whisper Linen in Petal and Olivia and Valentina in Champagne.
