Life is just a bowl of cherries

Home-Decor | Ivy Ong-Wood 8 Jul 2021

As fans of Enid Blyton's Famous Five series know, food always tastes much better outdoors. In Five Go Off in a Caravan, George says: "I don't know why, but the meals we have on picnics always taste so much nicer than the ones we have indoors."

If you want to capture that picnic magic, where better than at quintessentially British fashion house Cath Kidston? Creative director Holly Marle has packed the basket with everything that you need for an al fresco meal or, if that fails, to bring the outdoors into your home this summer.

Bright red cherries are the main motif for the home collection this season. Whether hand-painted on red-gingham checks, printed as all-over florals, or used to decorate homeware pieces, this juicy fruit is sure to make everyone smile.

All you need for a picnic is here - from cherry jugs and glasses to a rustic salad bowl with a wooden lid. And if you want a proper picnic, you can buy an actual hamper. Made from wicker with a bright red trim and cherry-printed lining, the traditional hamper includes plates, glasses and cutlery for four.
