Easter weekend is nearly here and we at Wheelers have put together a small guide to help you get ready and celebrate Easter in style especially if you are hosting for the weekend with friends and family. All of us at Wheelers will be celebrating having a break and catching up with friends so you should too. Whether you are going away or staying at home we have some lovely gifts and accessories for you to indulge in.
Easter for us means spring is finally here after the cold and bitter winter months everyone is wanting spring to come along. The sun starts to shine, the warmth starts to burn through and the air is fresh with floral fragrance. Its when you can start putting the bed sheets on the line again, turning the central heating down, hearing the birds chirp in the morning and naturally your body starts feeling better.
For me its gym time again getting that body ready for summer, doing a huge spring clean and getting rid of the cobwebs from winter, once that is done its all about maintaining and filling the house with flowers and fresh floral candles burning.
To get you ready for spring some new decor for your table might be a nice idea. To help you embrace the spring decor we believe some Georg Jensen bowls might be a nice idea with a large range in store and online there are plenty to choose from for all different tastes. Each bowl can be used for different uses and there are different sizes for all different occasions. In something like our wire basket made from brushed stainless steel you could store an assortment of fruit which could sit on your kitchen counter tops all year round, one of our strawberry or oyster bowls which have been highly polished would sit beautifully on your dining table to serve different snacks inside like crisps. One of our personal favourites is our new Georg Jensen leaf bowls comes in three different sizes which you can purchase separately or in a set these look great as a set for serving an assortment of different size snacks inside or bread rolls.
Some new serve-ware might be a lovely idea for your parties over the bank holiday weekend which you can use all year round. Serve a selection of cheese's, figs, dates and grapes on one of our Georg Jensen cheese boards with an additional cheese knife. Some salad servers made from polished stainless steel to toss your salad in a home-made dressing is a crowd pleasing favourites when putting on a buffet dinner for guests. Are you baking a home-made pie or cake then you will need a serving instrument to dish out your dessert to your guests. We do a large range of different table-top accessories for all different occasions.
Make some home-made drinks for spring perfect for serving the kids drinks when they come home from school or serving guests drinks at parties. These lovely Georg Jensen jugs are great for storing home-made lemonade inside with some large chunks of ice making a beautiful spring/summer drink. Add some Pimms for a cheeky twist and some fruit.
I don't know about you but more than anything I love fresh flowers in the home and a bouquet of flowers is always on my weekly list. I feel flowers just add a happy vibe to the home whether that some bright sunflowers, tulips or roses; whatever the bouquet these stainless steel Georg Jensen vases will look beautiful in your home to keep your flowers inside. Many different styles, heights and materials available at Wheelers perfect for filling your home with floral scents.
Make some home-made cocktails in one of our Georg Jensen cocktail sets - this will add a personal touch to serve your guests if you are having a garden party this bank holiday weekend. We have a large collection of bar-ware perfect for creating concoctions this spring and summer for yourself, friends and families instead of going out make them yourself. Store your ice in one of our Georg Jensen ice buckets and your champagne in our champagne coolers.
Whether you are staying inside this bank holiday weekend, having friends over or going away a good bottle of champagne is in order. Its not everyday that you get a four day weekend so why not celebrate in style. We have a wide range of different champagnes including big branded makes like Bollinger, Laurent-Perrier, Ruinart and Dom Pérignon - a Wheelers favourite. These brands have the pick of the best grape ensuring you are drinking the most flavoursome champagne from the best grape vines. We have bottles to share, bottles to gift and bottles for parties and events. If you are planning a garden party over the Easter weekend then one of our Laurent-Perrier large champagne buckets with six bottles of Laurent-Perrier Rosé could be the perfect addition for sharing amongst friends. If you are planning a trip for the weekend then a lovely bottle of Bollinger to share with your partner in the evening over dinner might be a nice idea.
Fill the air in your home of spring time scents with our range of Aspinal of London candles. These beautiful candles come in an assortment of sizes there is the large sized candle which has a single wick, and has a grapefruit fragrance and has the burning time of 40 hours. Notes of mandarin, pink grapefruit and lime fill the room with a happy and uplifting vibe which of course is what spring is all about, its when we all come out of our winter slump.
Instead of have one large candle why not try our trio featuring the three candles Aspinal of London stock. In the set you receive three beautiful and contemporary scented candles which you can place in each room to ensure fresh scents fill each room.
The Grapefruit scented candle features a fresh and fruity smell that is uplifting and designed to create a happy vibe in any room.
