Gustavian Antiques and Fine Dining
As the nights draw in, we start lighting fires and candles, having cosy nights in - and maybe, instead of meeting friends outside, we want to entertain them a little at home.
I love setting the table for a meal with friends. Cooking slow roast venison stews, cinnamon apples, pumpkins soups - the delicious smells filling the house with promise of christmas.
Much to my husbands despair I start listing to christmas carols in November. Yes I love christmas - In fact I love everything about it. It is about now that I start changing the decor - maybe bringing in a few warm colours and getting a little more rustic.
I love bringing the outside in. Maybe this is the time to take a bit of rustic garden furniture from outside, gathering pinecones, chestnuts and and evergreen branches. Make little autumn displays.
