5 Homeware Items That Are Perfect For St George's Day

Placemats featuring pictures of bacon and eggs and beans on toast

It’s an opportunity that’s too good to miss! We're not too proud to jump on a national saint's day - in fact, it would be rude NOT to.

Because actually, Rockett St George is a thoroughly English brand. It was founded in 2007 by friends Jane Rockett and Lucy St George, who bonded over a love of the quirky treasures they found at car boot sales. Both are passionate about celebrating individual style and creativity, and firmly believe that every item in your home should inspire joy. With this in mind, here's what you need in your humble abode this (Rockett) St George's Day ...

1. Old Leopard Brewery Serving Tray, £9.95

There’s nothing more English than a pint, we're sure St George would agree, especially when served up on a good old-fashioned beer tray. In fact, this colourful number celebrates finest India Pale Ale (IPA), but in the spirit of the story, we’re going with it...

2. Fresh Green Large Enamelled Green Serving Tower, £85

Afternoon tea is as English as it gets, so present yours on this beautifully tiered serveware – there’s plenty of room for finger sandwiches, slices of cake and delightful cream-filled naughties. A showstopper in itself. 

3. Set of 2 Breakfast Placemats, £18

Serve up your full English on a novelty placemat and make every breakfast or brunch an occasion, especially on St George's Day. Featuring a superior matt-lacquered surface that’s both durable and wipe-clean, with a non-slip felt backing, the bright colours and bold strokes pop off a monochrome striped background, giving these an art deco feel we love.

4. Fucking Rain Umbrella, £35

Nothing starts a conversation in England like the weather...specifically, bad weather. More specifically, RAIN. Luckily, we've got you covered. This sturdy brolly has a soft matt black handle and a super-strong release and refold mechanism, making it your trusted companion on blustery days. 

5. Set of 2 Monochrome Stripy Mugs, £24

Time for tea? English Breakfast, of the national drink (alongside beer), every cup deserves to be presented beautifully. If you're on tea duty this St George's Day, these little beauties add a timeless elegance to any kitchen and will inspire all the compliments. 

And finally...

Hopefully you'll find something in this eclectic mix to spark your own creativity this St George's Day - after all, it's why Rockett St George does what it does (you can read more about that here). 'Helping people feel confident about creating a home that's unique and personal is what drives us,' says Jane. 'Your home should be somewhere that makes you happy every day. Life is too short to save all the pretty things for best. Surround yourself with gorgeousness and feel your spirits soar.'
