OK, folks, this is such a treat for us to kick start the weekend with... a first look inside the forthcoming winter issue from Sweet Paul magazine. Many of you know that I am a self-confessed magazine addict but that addiction goes up a level at this time of year. I'll often buy magazines I wouldn't normally buy throughout the year just to see their take on festive entertaining, gifting, decorating and recipes. So, of course, I'm more than a little excited to be able to share these teasers from Sweet Paul'sfestive-themed issue today. Within its 172 pages you will find recipes for Holiday cookies, edible gifts, finger-food and party cocktails. There's a tartan-themed Holiday celebration with spiced turkey and sage stuffing (yum!) and a feature on all things chocolate. Plus, you'll also find Sweet Paul's best winter comfort food, including his favourite mushroom tart. As well as foodie treats there's craft ideas aplenty, from DIY wrapping paper and wreaths to driftwood and linen makes as part of the issue's Natural Christmas story. Also, there's my usual Will's Picks feature, which offers ideas and inspiration for vintage Holiday decorating with a modern twist, including market picks for your home and tabletop. I'm excited, are you? Mark your calendars and check back here to read the full issue of Sweet Paul at 8am EST on Tuesday 15 November.
