As the evenings grow darker and the leaves become crisper, we are excited for those warm autumnal nights by the fire sipping our pumpkin spiced lattes. It’s time to bring out the chunky-knit blankets, dust off the slow-cooker recipe books and fill your home with the scents of the new season. From seasonal fruits to chai lattes, we’ve pulled together our favourite tips for embracing this time of year.
Of course, candles are a must to use around the home for the perfect autumnal ambience. Candles work particularly well in entrance halls, on windowsills and coffee tables as well as on the dining table. Mix up colours and heights with your candles for interest and arrange singularly or in clusters.
We recommend investing in a teapot to enjoy cups of chai, spice and berry tea - the aromas from the teapot will evoke a cosy sense of winter approaching.
This season we also love to bring the ‘outside in’. Using a rich palette of reds, oranges and yellows, your home styling can embody all that is loved about autumn. A great way to bring some seasonal colour into your home is by displaying an autumn wreath. These can easily be made yourself or your local florist is sure to have a selection on offer.
Our large Soup Tureen is perfect for warming soups and stews from your slow cooked recipe that has been bubbling away and its aromas floating about the home as it cooks. Likewise our serving platters are fantastic for freshly baked bread to serve alongside those dishes. With Halloween and Bonfire night around the corner, whether indoors or out, the occasion deserves to be celebrated in style.
Soon our Factory Shop will be filled with our decorated pumpkins. Decorated on site by our tissue transfers, make sure to stop by and see them before they’re gone. You could decorate your own at home too as an alternative to pumpkin carving this year.
We would love to see your Burleigh inspired pumpkins over on Instagram, don’t forget to tag us using the hashtag #BurleighPottery
