YO YO YO MERRY LEGITMAS!
This week we’re featuring a bunch of products which I personally took for a test drive to make sure that only the very best party paraphernalia was selected for you, our lovely reader!
In the quest for making a Christmas table which didn’t look ‘naff’ AF, I joined forces with the experts in scrumptious delights aka Fortnum and Mason. The guys invented the Scotch Egg so if anyone knows about delicious treats, it’s them!
Our mission, to decorate an entire table with delights that weren’t just gorgey, but edible too!
We were also lucky enough to get a motherload of pasteis de nata from the amazing team over at Cafe De Nata. They were so mind-blowingly delicious that 1 of the dinner guests went into a food coma shortly after eating one. Not to be too worried though, he was overheard whispering ‘worth it’ as he passed out.
I also put my own little spin on ye olde lump o’ coal. Swapping out the booboo price for some incredibly surprising little treasures!
Not least of which includes the sculptures by artists Patrik Fredrikson and Ian Stallard, of London design studio Fredrikson Stallard. Their incredible works are hand sculpted out of foam and pressure blasted with velvet fibers to create the illusion of colossal rocky ranges, yet function with incredible ergonomic excellence as soft, squishy, form responsive chairs. It literally doesn’t get any better.
Below is a super silly quickfire with Patrick Fredrikson himself, where we ask all the burning questions you never knew you always wanted to know!
Thanks for being such a charming and delightful beast, Patrik.
