|The book begins with my Outside Inspirations and I'm excited to share the styling ideas I put together in this wonderful buttercup field in East Sussex owned by the gorgeous Lady behind Sarah-Jane Down The Lane Blog. Dragging this mustard velvet armchair into the sunny floral setting filled me with genuine happiness on the day of the shoot and Debi Treloar has captured everything so beautifully. Huge thanks to my assistant Jess Heggs and Sarah for all their help.|
As well as including ideas for Gardens in the book I also get Out & About and share my ideas for Glamping and how to picnic in style. I like to get crafty with my styling ideas so I have included DIY How to's in each section, you can have a go at my vintage crate seating and table set, lighting ideas, no sew vintage scarf cushion, lavender bracelet and floral hair garland. Plus there are tons of ideas for serving drinks, making decorations and displaying sweet treats in the final chapter, Parties & Celebrations. I'd love to hear what you think to this little taster from my latest book?
*I would like to thank everyone at my publishers Ryland Peters & Small who have helped me produce my 5th book, Barbara Zuñiga for doing a great job designing the book, Debi Treloar for her gorgeous photography and fun times, Jess Heggs and Pippa Blenkinsop for assisting me on some of the shoots and to everyone who sent me styling props and who let us shoot in your lovely gardens, meadows, barns, tents, camper vans, potting sheds, summer houses etc.
