Spring is finally here which means that new spring themed cookware sets are bound to be popping up. Le Creuset has announced not one, but two stunning new collections that will make cooking your Easter ham a fashion statement. The two collections, the Sakura collection and the Flowers collection, bring the brightness of spring into your kitchen.
The Sakura collection, which is inspired by the beauty of the Japanese cherry blossom, is a small set that includes a kettle, mugs, teapot and a round dutch oven. The pastel pink is decorated with gold foil and cherry blossom appliques. The collection is to commemorate the 25 years Le Creuset has sold their products in Japan.
The second collection, the Le Creuset Flower collection, is the perfect kitchenware for spring. Complete with a flower shaped Cocotte, a mini cocotte, magnets, an ovel cocotte and a flower trivet, this collection is bright and airy. Let's take a deeper look into the collections.
