Romantic Gold and Pink Table Setting
After discussing How To Realise Your Dreams over the weekend, I've loved reading your comments and hearing about why you also adore this time of year.  The fresh start, the clean slate and the promise of more exciting things to come!  And it's usually around this time of year we start to turn our eye to our surroundings and the environment we live in.  Cleaning, sprucing and decorating.  Anyone else been hitting up the homeware aisles?  Alongside the candles flickering away and the diffusers we've placed on our freshly-dusted shelves, it's also the perfect time to flock to the M&S blooms and bring them indoors to the favourite corners of our homes.  Beautiful to see, beautiful to smell and even more beautiful to get creative with...

Romantic Feminine Dinner Table Finishing Touches
First and foremost, ask yourself this: what is your colour scheme?  Personally, I tend to opt for bright, romantic and feminine shades including blush pink, cream and white.  They're refreshing and cheerful, especially at this time of year when everything seems about 70% less enticing.  Another reason I quickly fell in love with this colour scheme is how versatile it can be, allowing you to move your blooms from room-to-room depending on your mood, and not the decor.

Along with the obvious choice of selecting a few of your favourite bouquets to merge together into one fabulous display, another way of bringing M&S flowers into your home includes a well-placed orchid or two on your mantelpiece.  Although, if you want to get creative, you could go the extra mile and at your next dinner party place a single flower stem (eg. Carnation) across each place setting, or perhaps use any leftover blooms to decorate any negative space on the table.  Speaking of table settings, the gold-rimmed pastel coloured plates shown here are available via M&S as the Isla Set of 4 Cake Plates.

Psst!  This delicious Chocolate and Caramel Billionaire's cake was purchased in store, although an even more luxurious version can be found online at M&S!  Take a peek >> Chocolate & Caramel Dribble Cake (serves 12)
