We Love CJ Housewares

We have discovered an Australian website that sells the most quirky, fun dinnerware imaginable- CJ Housewares

Citrine Dinnerset

Cups and teapots, cake stands and dinner sets in the most brilliant colours and designs. All whimsical and beautifully made and not at all ordinary! A set of three stackable cake plates is currently $139 and the Citrine dinner set valued at $599 is currently selling for $329.
The stackable cake plates in the most delicious pinks of different intensities embellished with flowers – all handpainted –  are just one ‘must have’! Set this on a table with a white cloth around which you stack your home baked goodies – cupcakes, vanilla cake with white frosting, homemade lemonade – all in the shade of a spreading old tree. Invite your girlfriends for a lady like autumn afternoon tea and admire!

Tea For One “Cottage Daisy”

Single cups holding a teapot all handpainted for $39 would make a sweet gift for a special somebody in your life.
Just one piece of this most quirky of earthenware will make your heart sing whenever you look at it.
Check out the CJ Housewares site to be delighted!

Eggcellant Easter

Martha Stewart Mini Easter Baskets

A time for getting together with family and friends and sharing Hot Cross Buns on Friday and chocolate eggs on Sunday.

Lay in a supply of your favourite buns to eat hot, dripping with butter and a cup of hot chocolate, with your best friend and pretend it’s diet food!

Make the most of our autumn weather and on Sunday set an ‘Easter table’ outside – a white cloth embellished with green and yellow ribbons – the colours of Easter. Add baskets to hold the eggs you have hidden and your friends search for, in the garden. If you are really keen invite your friends around for an Easter egg painting spree – using hard boiled or blown eggs and food dyes for dipping them or simply water colour paints and some cheap brushes to test your artistic skills!

Koko Black Mini Bunnies

There could be one large basket or individual smaller ones into which the eggs are piled along with rabbits and little chicks – all symbols of Easter. Over time, you might like to continue this tradition, with hand painted wooden eggs and other special bits and pieces which you could tuck away to only re-emerge at this time of the year.
For lunch after all that activity, serve a lamb dish and a special dessert, finishing  with the chocolate Easter eggs –  you’ll vow you will never eat that much chocolate again – until next time………

Please note: Bridal Survival will be closed from the 10th of April and will reopen on the 13th of April. All new orders recieved during this time will be dispatched from the 13th of April.
