Duvets, Dens and Dining


treats


If I could imagine my dream way to spend an evening with the ones I love, it would involve good food, sitting somewhere cosy and luxurious with fairy lights and being wrapped up in my duvet and soft Egyptian cotton while watching my favourite film and getting lots of hugs and cuddles from my boys. Opening up a bottle of bubbly, indulging in some devilishly good chocolate treats and to top it off not having to do the dishes would be perfection.


I don't feel I am alone in thinking the idea of having freshly cooked food brought to you in bed or sitting on pillows in a Bedouin style den is an amazing way to spend an evening. Some of you may have already heard of the pop-up Duvet Dining experiences that have taken place in London, Belfast and Edinburgh recently and are the brainchild of TK Maxx who are celebrating the launch of their fun and creative Ridiculous Possibilities campaign which is capturing the idea that anything is possible in store. They also and set me a challenge to re-create our own DuvetDining experience at home.

Duvet Dining


We are always up for a challenge and thought we would do a child friendly version by creating a whimsical den packed with loads of soft pillows, throws, duvets and soft linens from TK Maxx, as well as other little touches such as vintage tea cups and bohenima lanterns. It can be hard to get both of the boys to sit down and eat together but on this occasion I didn't think it would be a problem and needless to say when the boys came into the room their faces lit up with excitement, they immediately made themselves at home.


Duvet Dining
Some little man really enjoyed himself


We had a delicious afternoon tea delivered for us so we could really experience DuvetDining for ourselves and all our eyes widened when we saw the fresh strawberries, blueberries, scones and brownies and some child friendly sparkling authentic french pink lemonade. My youngest absolutely loves fruit and nearly devoured all the blueberries himself while my eldest divined into the Belgian Chocolate brownie. It was really a magical way to spend an afternoon with lots of delicious food, laughs and cuddles to be had, as well as a touch of luxury.

My eldest kept asking if we could do this every day and even though that may not be practical on a daily basis we are certainly going to embrace more DuvetDining into our lives and with regular deliveries being made each week to TK Maxx stores and at prices up to 60% of RRP, I challenge you to pop into store and see what Ridiculous Possibilities you stumble on to.

  3. This looks like so much fun! I love things like this, reminds me of the duvet forts I used to make when I was a kid - might have to recreate this on a day that I need to feel ultra comfy!

  9. Ah! This is so sweet! I loved making dens too when I was little - our classic was a sheet over some dining chairs, with piles of books on the chairs to keep it in place. It was so exciting, especially if we were allowed snacks!
