Mother's Day (11th March) is a great opportunity to celebrate the amazing women in our lives and I look forward to it coming around each year, not least because I get breakfast in bed - a favourite treat! I'm also fortunate enough to still have my own mother living close by and to have a great relationship with her. Continue reading
Not many people know and in fairness, we don't shout about it enough but Field Day Ireland is a truly local handmade brand...
Our candles are hand poured and finished and once cooled, they're checked and packaged up all by hand here at our factory - by a great team of women, who take their quality control role very seriously. Our soaps are hand wrapped individually also. Continue reading
Time to talk interiors and as we move from season to season, it's natural to change your wardrobe over but what about your home? One of the loveliest ways to keep things interesting in your home is to use a few simple tricks to transition your interior from summer to winter.

Something a bit more interesting than a green salad. These recipes ensure you get your rainbow of nutrition - the colourful 5 a day of fresh vegetables that we're told to eat and which is so much easier to achieve during the summer months. Is it any wonder we usually feel more healthy and full of energy at this time of year.Puy Lentils & Roast Veg
This is a long time favourite in our home and was originally one that I found in an Ainsley Harriot book. The balsamic and garlic in the dressing are the winners here - I'm not a garlic fan but when it's roasted, smoky and sweet like it is in this recipe, it's just irresistible. Continue reading
We are excited about spring time and the imminent launch of our new Field Day Garden candle. Reminiscent of an abundant fresh green garden, it's got green leaves and tomato fruit notes to really bring a fragrance of summer into your home.
To celebrate this new candle, available from the 20th March, we are going a little off-piste with this blog post and share with you one of our many passions here at Field Day HQ - Gardening
