Tablemats that will be talk of the table

Mary Berry

While Mary Berry has long been a baking legend thanks to her buns, biscuits and brandy snaps, you might not know that she has designed a rather lovely selection of kitchen accessories too – including placemats.

‘As you might expect, her cotton placemats are understated and tasteful with practicality in mind (they are machine washable at 30C). We love the grey colourway – because it goes with anything and can be easily dressed up to the nines with other tableware. These mats are soft, beautifully detailed and slightly padded, which is just what you need for hot plates.’

Best Teapots for the perfect brew!

Marry Berry

A good quality teapot that offers value for money and stays hot throughout tea time.

‘A classic white teapot here – would you expect anything else from Mary Berry? – that is as serviceable as it is stylish. Made from fine china and with a timeless beaded design and subtle grey trim, this pot holds 800ml (three cups) and would be at home in formal or informal dining situations.’

Best pasta bowls for loading up the carbs!

Marry Berry

Part of the queen of baking's crockery collection, this bright white pasta bowl is finished with an elegant raised dot pattern around the edge which looks just as stylish when used as a stand-alone piece or as part of the wider range.


‘Despite being made from fine china it can be used in the microwave and the oven up to 230C – perfect for reheating that last piece of lasagne. Measuring 21.5cm across, we found it big enough for a portion of pasta and a small side salad.’

Best cutlery sets that make any meal a special occasion!

Mary Berry

16 Piece Cutlery Set

‘Full of country kitchen charm, and undoubtedly one for Bake Off fans, we love this vintage inspired set of table tools with sweet ceramic handles.’
