There’s something about Spode that is utterly magical. It’s elegant, timeless and beautiful… and when it comes to setting the table for a festive feast, the iconic British style, its heritage and the beauty it brings to any setting is unlike anything else I have ever experienced.
Spode is traditional, but still so relevant, modern and stunning. And in its 250th anniversary year they are celebrating by launching their very own tea-inspired gin… and it’s delicious!
This is Spode’s 1770 Italian tableware in Cranberry, which is sold exclusively at Fortnum & Mason. The design is just gorgeous and sipping gin and tonics from these teacups felt incredibly decadent and Christmassy :)
With skills, knowledge and expertise that have been passed down for 250 years, the Spode backstop is the mark of finest craftsmanship and will always bring a depth to any table setting.
Setting this beautiful table has really got me into the Christmas spirit! And with my tree arriving this weekend and a day of decorating, cookie baking and gin & tonics ahead, I am well and truly on my way to the Most Wonderful Time of The Year…
Merry (almost but not quite) month of December! We are very nearly there…
