Deborah Hutton is so much more than a well-known media personality. She's also a TV presenter, former mag editor and designer of her own homewares range. Oh, and let me not forget to mention her hugely popular website, Balance by Deborah Hutton.Who better to turn to for advice on making entertaining at home a breeze than this lovely lady?

In years gone by - or at least in the years I was hunting for nice coasters (probably before online stores really existed), you'd be hard-pressed to find nice options in bricks-and-mortar shops.In fact, some homewares stores didn't even have coasters. And the ones that did were usually a bit cringe-worthy (coasters with names on them... I don't think I need to go into it).

If you're looking to make your little one's party stylish and memorable then you need to check out Merc + Jones. They're all sorts of amazing when it comes to party products and keepsakes - and they're pro's at personalising kids party ideas to suit your individual needs too.

It's a well-known fact that I don't get very creative in the kitchen. I leave those culinary adventures to my partner Gavin, who in return generally lets me have my run of the house when it comes to decorating (apart from that time he put me on a cushion ban).When it comes to baking or cocktails, though, you can bet your bottom dollar that I want in on the fun.

I have a crush on Tara Dennis. There, I said it!

I’m going to be that person at Reed Gift Fair this year that her people ask to back away from the stage lol. She has that sort of effect on craft lovers like me. In fact, she tells me that she does get approached on the street by people quite often, asking her for interior design hints and tips.
