On Sunday 26th March, we will be celebrating Mother’s Day in the UK. This post acts, not only as a reminder but as a gift guide for inspiration so you can ensure your mum feels completely special and loved on Mothering Sunday. No matter what your budget is, we have handpicked a thoughtfully curated list of gift ideas which say ‘thank you’, ‘I love you’ and ‘you’re the best’.
Finding the perfect gift around Christmas time can be tough, particularly for the person who has everything! Striking the balance and gifting something which it thoughtful, original, imaginative and practical is an art but don’t fear. At Sass & Belle, we’re gifting experts and we’re here to help. Gifts in a jar are the perfect way to personalise a fun and thoughtful present.
One of the many reasons we love Autumn is because of the beautiful colours. Leaves fall turning the ground gold, amber and pink! We’re often wondering how the end of a summer can be so beautiful and colourful. In honour of this, and to pay homage to this year’s trend of bringing the outdoors in, we got creative making mini autumnal-inspired bouquets. They’re super easy to make and a great way to bring some autumn cheer in the home. Sass & Belle’s resident Visual Merchandiser, Caitlin, is not only incredible at creating eye-catching window displays, but she knows a thing or two about floristry as well. Here she shares her tips and tricks with us and shows us, step-by-step, how to make perfect mini bouquets in autumn shades.
If you’ve been hiding under a rock or lost on an abandoned island, let us fill you in – cactuses have got big. Not as in they have suddenly become giant and are now a threat to the human race, as in they are trending BIG TIME. And we can see why. Versatile and cool, they fit into a range of interior styles and can instantly transform a room. They are also a perfect way to bring the outdoors in, especially for those that are lacking garden space. Another plus is that they are fairly undemanding in terms of care. A water here, a water there and that’s it. This might be a little testing for some people, sure. We've all been subject to the internal questioning of our ability to be a successful adult when we manage to kill a cactus that only needs to be watered once a month. Whether you’re a green fingered gal who’s the queen of plants, or someone that would rather their cactus be as plastic as Regina George, we’ve got you covered. Read on to discover seven fun ways to bring cacti into your home (warning – all alternatives are super cute so be prepared to awww!)
We would be lying if we said Sass & Belle HQ don’t love a cocktail or two. Anything tropical-inspired that reminds us of warm summer evenings, we’re on board! If it quenches our thirst in the process? Then all the better! Inspired by our super summery Tropical Summer collection, we’ve created two types of cocktails, one with alcohol and one without. They are really easy to make and utterly delicious. Pass us the cocktail shaker, we’re ready to impress…
