Fleur Wood: Food Fashion Friends
I received an email last week telling me that one of my favourite Australian fashion designers, Fleur Wood has released a new book titled 'Food Fashion Friends'. I love an excuse to visit her store and so I picked myself up a copy. If you've ever visited one of the Fleur Wood stores you'll know it is a visual treat full of great ideas. The store I went to has a padded fabric counter covered in a doily tablecloth, one wall covered in ceramic rabbits and the change room curtains are made of patchwork fabrics. Love.
I'm sure there were more details in the store but I was distracted by the clothes and her new book. The book is filled with beautiful photos, event styling ideas and recipes with ideas for throwing a tea party, children's party and more. I have been wanting to organise a garden tea party at my place and this book has given me the motivation.
My favourite party ideas? The peacock cane chairs painted in various pastel colours, overturned pot plants covered in table clothes and used as tables, the mismatched plates and cake stands and the coconut ice recipe looks delicious. There's lots more inside too.
