A Unique Gift For The Important Lady In Your Life This Mother’s Day…

 

 

Celebrated almost everywhere in the world, Mother’s Day is one of those special events on the calendar that is celebrated around the world.
This celebration honours Mothers and Motherhood across the globe, not always on the same date and sometimes celebrating simply ‘Mother Earth’ or ‘Mother Church’.
Mothering Sunday though is universal in that the act of Mothering is to be celebrated and in the UK  falls on March 11th this year.

Here in the UK, typically we try to make the day a special day for our Mothers.


In America it seems to have all started with Ann Reeves Jarvis who was a social activist, she was founder of Mothers’Day Work Clubs. Ann had a friend called Julia Ward Howe, who had first advocated in 1870 for the idea of a Mother’s Day as a call for mothers throughout the world to work together for peace.
The celebration of Motherhood was at the core of creating the idea of recognising, appreciating and celebrating at least one day in the year all that being a mother represents.

There cannot be a more special start to the day than perhaps Breakfast in Bed accompanied by a lovely cup of tea.
Whilst Ann Jarvis did not like commercialism, I think she too would be in favour of a nice cup of tea to start the
day. Such an easy pleasant way to start a day, just one of those simple moments we can share with a loved one.
Life is all about the moments.

The moment our kettles whistle leads to the moment you enjoy a break, share time with friends and family and a hundred other moments, savour each one – At Richmond, we believe we make the finest ‘Copper Tea Kettles’.
The perfect way to start the day and it all starts with how we prepare the tea, boiling the water in a hand-made copper tea kettle is the best!

Using less energy and creating a better flavour too. Our kettle designs have a place in any kitchen.

We are pleased to present our Richmond Kettle Company Collection, helping people enjoy lifes’ little moments… in style!

We at Richmond Kettle Company would like to take the opportunity to wish all Mothers a very Happy Mother’s Day.

Changing Seasons

Summer is the hottest of the four temperate seasons, falling between spring and autumn.
At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice.
The date of the beginning of summer varies according to climate, tradition and culture.
When it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere, it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa.
Each season is evocative and special in it’s own way. Here in the UK at Richmond Kettles, as summer changes to autumn, we are in anticipation of all the things the new
season brings, the changing colours of the rolling countryside, Halloween, Bonfire Night and cosy nights in with the kettle whistling in the background.
We are all busy here ensuring our customers are receiving both the best possible service and the most exceptional kettle you can own.
We will shortly have available again our silver plated ‘Jubilee’ kettle.

Originally introduced as a limited-edition kettle, it proved so popular we have now added it to our main range.
The fact that it is silver plated and commemorates our Queens Jubilee makes it quintessentially English and exceptional both as a treat for oneself
or as gift for a loved one.
We hope you will love it as much as we do, and as the nights begin to draw in again, pop the kettle on, put your feet up and embrace the impending season

TREND ALERT: COPPER INTERIOR STYLE

Copper is steeped in tradition being used for centuries in elegant English homes. From copper kettles, pots and pans through to lighting and bathroom décor this malleable metal is tough, pliable and highly conductive, making it one of the world’s most important substrates but above all it is beautiful.

We have seen a re-emergence of the trend for copper in British homes last year . Adding a magnificent finish and adding warmth to a room, the love for copper has been well and truly re-ignited and it is currently a must have for interior designers in 2015.

From the traditional ‘Downton Abbey’ movement (as we like to call it)
