Decorations: I love spending time outdoors. The way the sunlight changes throughout the day is so magic. Simple decorations made out of paper are so easy and using coloured paper make a mega impact. Here’s DIY paper flowers here’s the how to guide for these realistic looking ones. For something more extravagant I’d love to get my friend Tord Boontje is so masterful with delicate natural floral shapes. I have this same lamp (see picture above top left) as a focal feature in my bathroom at home. Real flowers are also so classic. I love my regular delivery from Freddie’s Flowers. My sister makes such wonderful displays, foraging country flowers and displays them in vintage vases. Here’s my Bird Jug with freshly picked blossoms (photo by Erin McIntyre).

Cakes Designs: As you know, I use nature as inspiration for much of my work. Edible decorations on the top of cakes and pies make great table settings.
