Coming very soon to Rowen & Wren, the Christmas Collection….
Coming very soon to Rowen & Wren, the Christmas Collection….
Before we opened Rowen & Wren we were the kind of customers that despaired at seeing any element of Christmas any time before October. Because of this we made the decision early on that we would only ever launch our Christmas collections after October, irrelevant of when other shops launch theirs which seems to be getting earlier and earlier. Therefore, as October nears we’re making preparations to launch our largest Christmas collection yet, in typical Rowen & Wren style we want to warm you up to the coming season so we have a couple of posts lined up to introduce the kind of Christmas we aspire to and the images that have influenced the collection to date. They’ll be no alarming countdown of Fridays, or Paydays, or anything else to startle you, just beautiful images to look forward to what’s ahead……

As you may have gathered, Autumn is our favourite season. The perfect Season for country walks and a spot of foraging followed by hearty meals incorporating your finds. From early autumn, you’ll find rosehips, sloes and blackberries springing up in hedgerows everywhere. We’ve found a favourite new use for our foraged blackberries over on the Cafe Johnsonia blog: Blackberry Basil Kombucha Shrub Cocktail http://bit.ly/1teyDCE

The humble water glass, we use one everyday so why compromise with a shabby old tumbler, why not trade it in for our product of the week….
Add the perfect detailing to your dinner or breakfast table with our delicately dimpled tumblers made exclusively for Rowen & Wren. Beautiful glassware should be used everyday and these are the ideal glasses for every occasion, from dinner parties to everyday use, they will make the perfect wedding gift or housewarming present. Their delicate beading adds both a pretty detail and a tactile finish: http://bit.ly/Zq2HPz
September marks the start of a new season, although it’s always sad to see Summer coming to end, Autumn brings with it a festoon of wonderful new design ideas hence the need for a September wish list. We’re inspired by a palette of nude and camel tones with darker peaches and pops of mustard and citrine. Our want for a geometric floor continues with this example from the Grand Hotel Tremezzo becoming our latest favourite, and our mood for interiors gets slightly darker with blue-grey walls and warm coloured accents.

We’re always amazed how strong trends run through plants and flowers, the foliage of the moment is most definitely the fern. Previously a little overlooked, we’ve enjoyed seeing them used in everything from wedding foliage to botanical illustrations. Therefore we were keen to incorporate them in our Autumn collection, the perfect plant for our new Zinc planters, organic, robust and perfectly green! http://bit.ly/1pKrzq2

As Autumn beckons and the evenings get a little cooler, we start to crave a very different type of food to the Summer months, comfort food! Pasta is always our favourite of comfort foods, due to its ease, speed and of course taste. This newly found Nigella recipe comes highly recommended for any pasta fans, simple but scrummy! http://bit.ly/1ihHk4B

Peppermint is one of our favourite flavours, whether it’s in tea, ice cream, or chocolate, or used fresh in recipes and salads. Therefore we’re always looking for new recipes, sweet or savory to incorporate it. if you’re a regular follower of our blog you will have noticed that we have a few favourite chefs that we go back to repeatedly, Jamie Oliver being one of them. Therefore having discovered this recipe of his we simply had to share it. Jamie’s Lemon, Lime & Peppermint sorbet is both refreshing and tasty, serve as a light desert or an in-between course cooler.

As we prepare for the launch of our new Autumn collection, we can’t help but harvest beautiful Autumnal images to help warm us up (or more to the point cool us down) for the coming season. Therefore it’s only right that we warm you up to it too. Although we’re always sad to see the Summer end, we love Autumn and all that it is associated with it. William Cullen summed it up perfectly; “Autumn, the year’s last, loveliest smile.” We look forward to sharing the new collection with you in a matter of weeks…..

Christmas may be the furthest thing from your minds at the beginning of August, but it’s very much at the forefront of ours. We recently had our Christmas photo shoot, so as to share our excitement of the results we thought we’d give you a little behind the scenes snapshot. It was during one of the hottest weeks we’ve had in a while, but armed with a variety of Christmas trees and festive foliage we created the perfect set up for a Christmas shoot. We really look forward to sharing the full collection with you all in October.
There are many drinks that we enjoy in the summer month’s (and plenty in the winter month’s too!). For a lazy summers evening there’s nothing nicer than sharing a chilled bottle of rosé. Not only does it taste great, but it’s one of our all time favourite colours as you will have seen on previous posts. Whether in its palest blush form or deeper coral shades, there’s nothing prettier or more enticing than a rosé filled glass or coupe. Of the above images see if you can spot the Rowen & Wren one, coming very soon to the site!
