Christmas Spiced Salt

I saw this cute idea on a Dutch cooking blog earlier this year and re-created the concept at my own '09 Christmas table, with some modifications! I combined Star Anise, Pink Peppercorns and Murray-River sea salt in a pistachio-coloured 'MUD' salt dish. Very Festive! MUD is an awesome Australian ceramic brand that is stocked all over the globe.

Eleni's Cookies NYC

A NYC must-see at Christmas!

Eleni's Cookies has two enchanting NYC locations (Chelsea & Manhattan) The brand's attention to detail is second-to-none & their packaging is drop-dead gorgeous. Please support this amazing business if ever you visit the area (cookie pre-orders are a MUST).

Christmas in Wonderland

This year's Christmas theme was 'Christmas in Wonderland'. I decorated the table with small toadstools and shiny red apples & kept the colour palette traditional; red, white and green.

A few sprigs of real holly, striped bon-bons & candy canes completed the look.

Kate Spade Christmas

Kate Spade is an uber-talented American designer whose range just screams 'look-at-me' colour. Whilst in NYC this December, I bought her gorgeous Christmas cards (along with her zany matches & other papergoods).

'Merry' & 'Bright' indeed!

Happy Christmas everyone....
