FORNASETTI – Scimmie Otto-scented Candle
I love Fornasetti candles and I find the Drunken Monkeys one a fun addition to your table set. Not to mention the heavenly smell! A blend of refreshing thyme and lavender opening up to more earthy notes like cedarwood, incense and birch. Also, I really like the cotton wick, which ensures a clean burn avoiding any black smoke.

I have always loved Themis Z lifestyle range. This Greek inspired impeccable collection includes homeware and fashion accessories. I picked the Serenity espresso cup and saucer set, because no dinner can be considered complete without a good cup of coffee.

The high-gloss lacquer gives it a clean, sleek finish making it ideal to serve your pre- dinner drinks and canapes.
