SPOILER ALERT: Get 12% off Royal Copenhagen & more designs at Connox by using 12IGOR until August 29th, 2021.
My love for plants goes a long way – so long actually that I decided to host a botanical brunch this week. Together with one of my all-time favorite design online shops, Connox, I threw a little botanical brunch for three. My husband, who was a great help in preparing the food, and a good friend who helped finished the great food. But let me tell you that the food was not the main cast in this brunch – the tableware was!
It’s been a long cherished wish of mine to have a set of tableware for six people from Royal Copenhagen. Ever since I visited their headquarters and design studios in Copenhagen, I fell in love with their beautiful tableware. Many years ago I even had the opportunity to hand-paint my own Royal Copenhagen mug in their design studios. And Connox was my go-to source to find all the various plates and accessories I wanted for a beautiful brunch.
My set of choice is comprised of large Princess flat plates, Princess bowls, Princess tea cups, Musselmalet ribbed deep plates, Musselmalet ribbed small flat plates, a large Musselmalet serving platter, a Musselmalet etagere, and a Musselmalet tea pot. And all these beauties were loaded with delicious food inspired by botanicals, veggies and fruits such as a couscous with dried apricots, cherry tomatoes, nuts and basil flowers, a baked cauliflower with homemade tahini sauce, a mixed salad with blackberries and edible flowers, Danish smørrebrød varieties, blinis with caviar and some delicious mimosas with edible flowers. The brunch was rounded up with vegan chocolates and Tunisian pistachio sweets and red current tea.
For the occasion I moved my Aalto dining table (which I also found at Connox) from the kitchen to the guest room with all its plants. The last but not least ingredient was love, friendship and good laughs in the best company. And since I couldn’t invite all of you, here is my little gift for you: with the promo code 12IGOR you can get 12% off of almost everything at Connox (more than 200 design brands), including Royal Copenhagen tableware. The code is valid until August 29th, 2021. Enjoy!
