Behind door number twelve of the 2019 #WinterStuff there’s a beautiful set from Mary Berry – it’s tea for two from her brand new Signature Collection (it’s not even available in the shops yet!).
Mary Berry – she’s a proper legend in this house, and has been for a ve-e-e-ry lo-o-ong time. I remember a couple of her cookbooks in the kitchen when I was growing up. I was gifted ‘Mary Berry’s Complete Cook Book‘ in my first years of marriage, and its well-thumbed, food-stained self is still in pride of place on my kitchen bookshelf 20-odd years later.
So it’s with a happy heart that I can share today’s prize with you – a selection from the very first licensed tableware range Mary Berry has produced.
Mary says: “I designed and chose every last detail for the range. The whole process has taken over a year and I have loved every moment – down to the finest details of the quality of the china and beading on the Signature range, the thickness of stitches on the fabrics and the tonal colours and packaging design, these are both ranges I am proud of.”
“The Signature range is modern, but with classic practical shapes and using fine china is top quality. It could be used as a daily set as well as for entertaining. I think times have changed; where I used to have a posh set and day set, now we have one set we love for all occasions.”Mary Berry
Personally I love that Mary’s practicality and years of experience show throughout the range – yes of course it’s super-pretty, but they actually function too.
“I wanted to make sure the placemats were a thick quality and fitted on the table and did not overlap the next person – just as good on a round or a rectangular table. The glasses took a long time, as I wanted generous sizes for wine and water that would easily stack in a dishwasher. “
See? Practical thinking!
The full range isn’t even available to buy yet (it’ll be stocked in John Lewis – you can see it here), and we’re lucky to have a ‘tea for two’ set to give away to one lucky winner!
