Dining inspiration

I’m hosting our BODIE and FOU Xmas diner at our home this year. We are a small team, Polly is off to Australia early next year and I thought it would be nice and intimate to do this in the lounge by our fireplace rather than in a pub again. We have a new, beautiful table, no chair yet but I have enough stools around the house to figure out something. You can get the same string lights here.

I wish we could do the same in London. Well, as usual…when I have something in mind, I just act upon it so I have contacted them to see how we could make one happen in London….
