Exclusive Sneak Peek: Sweet Paul Winter 2011

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's festive-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.


  1. Can't wait to see your picks in the upcoming issue!

  2. Gorgeous photos - I especially love those little muffins with the slices of apple (I think that's what it is anyway) on top so they look like flowers.

  3. OMG Will,
    I think we are kindred spirits. I love Sweet Paul, I happen to think he beyond awesome....I can't wait to see this issue fully. I pretty much buy every magazine's Christmas issue to inspire me for the holiday season. I can confess that I have Christmas issues dating back as far as 1997. I know I'm a freak but I love it it all.

  4. The mo wrap is hallarious and would be so easy to do!

  5. really looking forward to this issue! Sweet Paul is sooo inspiring. Just wish the recepies would be in Swedish :-) Other measurements and sometimes it's hard to figure out some of the ingredients. Or maybe I'm just lazy... Gives food inspiration anyway, and makes you hungry!

  6. I just fell off my chair!! WIll these are insane! LOVE so freaking much. Paul is a genius, turns the simplest of things into gorgeousness. Im crazy about that festive display with branches and glass bottles..the dusty miller looks soo pretty!!
    Thanks for sharing + happy weekend
