For me the Wedgwood brand has always been synonymous with elegant afternoon teas and decadent dining. It's one of the few homeware brands I can remember being aware of as a child that I still love and use today. I was lucky enough to visit the Wedgwood factory and museum in Barlaston, the home of Wedgwood in Staffordshire a few years ago and can recommend a visit if you are interested in learning more about the brand's fascinating history and heritage, or even if you are just looking for an enjoyable day out.
Wedgwood have just launched an inspiring new online food, drink, style and culture destinationBehind the Blue Door, and to mark the site's launch they've invited me to choose something from their beautiful new fine bone china Arris collection to give away to one of my readers.
Introduced earlier this year, Arris is a chic and sophisticated range designed for a sociable evening or afternoon tea and coffee with friends. You may have spotted the beautiful gold and white octagonal plates from the Arris collection in my edit of gifts for the home earlier this month.
For the giveaway I've picked out a set of 4 Arris tea cups and saucers. There are 4 different patterns in the set, each one featuring elegant gold detailing. These retail at £180, come in a beautiful Wedgwood presentation box and would make a lovely gift either for yourself or for a special friend or family member.
