Easter | Decor Inspiration

Decorating your home for Easter is becoming increasingly popular.  I have been doing it for years and love sprucing up my home with pretty decorations for the bank holiday weekend.  Here is a look that I absolutely love and something that I will be popping into the memory bank for next year.  Glamorous and sophisticated with grey and metallic tones.

Easter in my own home has taken on a pastel colour palette.  Pale pink and blue decorated eggs hang from my Easter tree amongst branches of pussy willow.  I love the freshness of this time of year when Spring is in the air. My next task will be to set my Easter table for a delicious family dinner on Sunday.  Follow us on Instagram and Twitter if you’re interested in seeing some more pretty pictures.

What’s your Easter style like? Do you decorate an Easter tree?


Wedding | Boho Style

As the wedding season approaches we’re expecting to see an increase in the boho style, with many brides opting for barefoot weddings, floral crowns, and rustic, outdoor ceremonies.

We’ve scoured Pinterest for some boho inspiration.  There is definitely a festival feel to this style which would be pretty wonderful for a Summer wedding don’t you think?

We like to stay on trend here at Sweet Mabel so we are now stocking our own boho themed wedding range thanks to party supplier, Ginger Ray.

Happy New Year!

It’s great to be back after a very lovely Christmas and New Year.  As always the festive period was filled with plenty of fine food and copious amounts of prosecco; there really is no better way to celebrate.


Celebrations aside it was also rather lovely to put my feet up and start making plans for the year ahead.  Fortunately I did get a new moleskin diary for Christmas so I spent many an afternoon scribbling away in my treasured black book.  I was also lucky enough to receive two new interior books as gifts: Selina Lake’s Winter Living and The Shopkeeper’s Home by Caroline Rowland.  They are both fabulous and jam packed full of inspiration, I highly recommend them to anyone with a passion and love of interiors.


My husband and I finished the holiday with a mini break to the Lake District to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary (just another excuse to drink some fizz).  Langdale has to be one of my favourite places.  As you leave the city behind and turn on to the country roads you also leave behind all of the stresses and strains of everyday life.  It’s a little haven for me.

We usually take a tent and pitch up at Great Langdale National Trust Camp site but as it was a special occasion we opted for a camping pod instead.  The sturdy hut and heater were very welcome on a wet and cold January weekend.

We had a wonderful time and after a blustery walk up to Blea Tarn for a Champagne picnic we found a quaint little pub with a roaring fire.


This year we have vowed to enjoy more of the countryside and I’m hopefully going to use the inspiration I find from the great outdoors in Sweet Mabel.

Our virtual shelves will be filling up over the next few weeks with more handmade gifts and we’ll be preparing for our first market of the year in Altrincham.  With so much to look forward to we can’t wait to share it all with you!



Autumn Market Days

We had another fabulous day at Altrincham Market on Saturday.  We took our beautiful wares and embraced the Autumn air by showing them off alongside chopped logs and glitter dipped acorns.  We even unleashed a few festive wares for our early Christmas shoppers.
