Cheese Please

It’s the night before Christmas

and all through the house,

There was a mouse stirring.

The people are laughing

Eating cheese and good festive food;

Christmas is fully planned,

The food on Christmas Eve

Is all about sharing.

This year, transform your table into a laid-back setting and encourage family and friends to tuck into a culinary free-for-all. Prepare big couscous salads, meats, stuffed courgette rolls, houmous, dips, olives and griddled bread and serve it on your vintage platters.

Vintage plates are perfectly suited to relaxed the dining experiences. Mix and match novelty plates, serving bowls, nesting jugs and serving trays in an array of blue porcelain patterns and pair with wooden sharing boards.

Don’t forget an after dinner Cheese, piled with your guests favourite blue, hard and soft cheeses, crackers and festive fruits like grapes and apples as accompaniments on of Cheese on vintage plates and Platters.

Infinity

Infinity

The state or quality of being infinite.”the infinity of space.”

Endlessness, infinitude and infiniteness, Boundlessness, limitlessness and unlimitedness,

Infinity is extensiveness,

The vastness, immensity; its the distance.
