Tuesday just became a whole lot more interesting, friends! Yep, the first ever holiday issue of Sweet Paul magazine is now live and as the biggest issue to date, it’s positively bursting with inspired ideas for foodies, entertainers and crafters alike. It will always be a special issue for me as it includes the first iteration of the Will’s Picks feature. Each issue I’ll be sharing hints, tips and ideas for decorating, entertaining and crafting. This issue I’ve written about throwing the best Christmas party on the block, including table and home decor tips to quick canape recipes and ideas for getting the party started. Do let me know if you happen to try any of the craft/decor projects, games or foodie items out – I’d love to hear from you! Given the issue is a joy from start to finish I really wanted to share some of my favourite pages from it. However, as the styling in the magazine is so super duper inspiring, I couldn’t pick a number one story but I do keep clicking back to Light Recycling, Thanksgiving and A Cake Tin Full of Memories. Which story is your favourite?

  1. yipppee! so exciting. love your picks. and yes, that acorn napkin ring is a gem. Loving that light recycling image too– obviously. 😉 Congrats Will! You're coming UP!!

  2. It looks fantastic Will! I am ever so pleased for you. Your layouts are so consistently dynamic. I love that white ornamental tree. Beautiful work Will!

  3. Too cool for words. I'm digging your office party ice breaker idea. And that Tree of Memories is my favorite thing in the post. It's so simple and cheerful (and green, in more ways than one). Excellent work, as always.

  4. Will this is fantastic!! Big congrats to you, I just love your picks! Such beautiful inspiration for Christmas xx

  5. Love your picks, especially the C&B leaf platter and Joy pears – what a lovely table you set and such festive flair! Can't wait to take a minute and read the full issue…

  6. Will my darling I am SO SO proud of you! You are on a roll man! xx

    I loved the latest issue by our favourite Norwegian man, and your spread was wonderful. I loved the party ice-breakers, nodded in agreement with your music choices, and just generally so enjoyed the pick'n'mix goodies you gave us!

    Though the whole issue was yummy (I have bookmarked several articles), I would pick 'A caketin full of memories' as my favourite of the three options you gave us. I love the idea of using old photos for tags and wrapping paper. Such a sweet idea that I will definitely try one day.

    Once again congrats to the fabulous work you are doing. Am a huge fan and am so happy for your success!! xx

  7. Hugest congrats on your first piece for Sweet Paul and its totally fab! Love the glass pears from Habitat, in fact I love everything.

    I was planning on foraging round the park for the branches for a mini tree and you have just reminded me what a great idea this is 🙂

    And I'm totally putting that playlist on my iphone!

    You are talented Will xo

  8. Will, congrats on the “Will's picks” action, and of course what a lovely white Xmas tree that adorns the cover there. I'm a hopeless Xmas fanatic and I know good stuff when I see it. Kudos.

  9. I just devoured the issue. You and Sweet Paul make an awesome team! And the acorn napkin ring is to die for (especially with a last name like Oaks…I just love acorns).
