Portmeirion Botanic Blue Pastry Forks

First of all, I’ve been in love with the beautiful Portmeirion Botanic Blue range for quite some time now. So, I’m super excited to be talking about them today. The Botanic Blue collection by Portmeirion has a charming antique style reminiscent of a French antique toile fabric with soft blue floral motifs set against a fresh white background.

Featuring a delicate spot background and delightful scalloped edges, Botanic Blue makes a truly perfect gift. Use to serve and eat cakes and pastries at afternoon tea, these Botanic Blue Pastry Forks are simply adorable. And we love that they are designed at Portmeirion studios in Stoke on Trent, England.

Okay, they’re cute, but why do I need a pastry fork?

I’m here to tell you why pastry forks are a totally necessary resident in your silverware draw. Have you ever tried to hold a plate in one hand and cut a piece off that slice of cake with a regular fork? I have, and It’s not a pretty sight. It totally ruins the presentation, especially éclairs. Traditionally, a dessert spoon and dessert fork are used when eating such pastries as cream puffs and éclairs; the pastry is held in place with the spoon and cut and eaten with the fork. So the pastry fork is just perfect for keeping the creamy fillings from squirting out too much and keeping dessert spoons from languishing alone in the silverware drawer.

Consequently, they’re also great conversation starters, awkward silences at tea time will be a thing of the past as your host regales you with an elaborate (and probably mostly fictional) account of how the pastry fork came to be, whilst you spend your mental capacities working out which tidbit is fact and which is fiction.

All in all, these are really pretty little forks, very slim and dainty. They make eating cake feel fancy, and shouldn’t that always be the case? They’re also very good value for the money and of course, the quality you would expect from Portmeirion.

Consequently, we’re super excited to be able to offer our readers the chance to win their very own set of Portmeirion Botanic Blue Pastry Forks. All you have to do is enter via the rafflecopter form at the bottom of this article, good luck!

    […] Today I’d like to talk about one of my ‘Holy Grail’ beauty products. It’s Le Blanc De Chanel Multi-Use Illuminating Base, I am absolutely in love with this product and let me tell you, although I was originally dubious of its price tag. It is 100% worth every penny! It retails at about £38 per bottle but there are usually voucher codes kicking around for 10% off here and there which will obviously bring the price down a little. […]
