December has arrived and it’s time to start ordering Christmas gifts, or perhaps something special for yourself...?

GreenGate Alice Red and GreenGate Flora are the perfect collections for traditional Christmas decor and dining. All the other floral and pastel collections (like Marley, Tess, and Marie) make equally beautiful gifts and suit our Southern Hemisphere summer Christmas wonderfully. 


Lillian's Cottage was created to share my love of GreenGate's beautiful homeware with New Zealanders. I treasure my GreenGate collection and hope you will love using each piece you purchase, too. 

Lillian's Cottage is named after my grandmother, who I think would have enjoyed using GreenGate, too  - possibly for hosting afternoon tea on her farmhouse veranda, overlooking her rose garden... 

Please feel free to contact me, Catherine Smith, at if you have any questions. Take a moment to connect via the InstagramFacebook, and Pinterest icons in the menu, too. Happy shopping!
