With the cooler weather having arrived it now feels very much like Autumn. The colour of the leaves on the trees are changing by the day if they aren’t already shedding. Tones of orange, yellow, green and brown against sunny blue skies look simply stunning and reminds us why we love the changing seasons. With the temperature starting to drop, there is something about this time of year which makes us want to cuddle up with a blanket, light some candles and watch a good movie. Not to forget sip on a nice cup of hot chocolate topped with marshmallows and whipped cream. One of our favourite guilty pleasures!
Now that pumpkin season is finally here we wonder how many of you decorate your homes for Autumn or for Halloween. We tend to decorate for Autumn with a small pumpkin here or there. Our pumpkin garlands pictured below add a lovely touch along a mantel or a sideboard whilst looking stylish at the same time.
A great way of helping to bring the outdoors in is by collecting pinecones which look great added to a display. We have recently added some moss balls to our website which have travelled to us all the way from Denmark! These are a rather Danish concept but one that we love as they also look great added to a display as pictured below or added to a large bowl or tray. Another way of bringing the outdoors in is by getting some sprigs of eucalyptus or foliage with red berries on and placing it in a vase or jug. You never know what you may have on your doorstep. Inexpensive and stylish which is right up our street!
Here at Le Petit Nest HQ we have been busy preparing for Christmas. We have so many new beautiful products for the home to share with you all and some stunning bags for Autumn/Winter from Katie Loxton. Toadstools look to be a big hit this festive season and we have a fair few lines featuring them to take you through autumn and winter.
Our diaries are almost full for party bookings for October, November and December and we will be doing several pop ups including one at Rookery Park (Saturday 10th November 11-4), Oulton Community Centre (Saturday 17th November 1-4) and The Florence Day Spa (Friday 7th December 18:00-21:00). If you like our products, do come and say hi to us, at what we are sure will all be wonderfully festive events. If you’re not able to come and see us then do keep an eye on our website as we are continuously adding products. For those of you who are local to the Lowestoft area, we are happy to give you the option of collecting your order. Just pop a note in the comments box at the checkout to let us know that you would like to collect your order and we will get in touch with you to arrange a date.
Last but not least we cannot believe that it’s been almost a year since we launched Le Petit Nest down at The Red Herring. The time really has flown but we’ve enjoyed every minute. Watch this space for details of a giveaway coming soon!
