Isla Simpson’s Charming Dinnerware Collection for Moda Domus

I’ve long adored the work of English illustrator Isla Simpson (be sure to check out her website and instagram!) so when Moda Domus revealed their new dinnerware collaboration I was over the moon. Perfect for summer parties, Isla’s tablescape is brimming with veggie-embroidered linens and hand-crafted ceramics. No two pieces are alike, though all were inspired by “the bucolic, cottagecore charm of British gardens.” The dinner plates can even be customized to feature a name and special date (would make for the sweetest wedding or anniversary gift)! Below, explore the charming new Isla Simpson for Moda Domus collection.

The new tabletop collection styled up to perfection.

Plates personalized with a special date.

With Easter less than three weeks away I can’t help but have spring-themed table settings on my mind (when you can’t cook to save your life, you really have to step up your table game!).

From wicker cheese knives to scalloped cake plates, there are so many wonderful new designs out now that you can use for years to come. Below, explore some of my favorite spring table setting pieces.

And of course, there’s a new Daily Hunt here!

The Most Decadent Cakes on Earth

When I stumbled upon these cakes on instagram by Lily Vanilli Bakery (place your order here!) in London my jaw dropped. Aren’t they straight out of scene from Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette?!

Below, explore more of the British bakery’s brilliant concoctions.
