You think it’s early don’t you to be reading posts about Christmas well I am writing this post on Britain’s hottest day of July… 34C today and with every window in the house open there still isn’t a breath of air.
Anyway back to Christmas.
In July I was invited by BritMums to visit the Tesco Christmas 2013 in July event at The Westbury Hotel in London. As the lift doors opened I stood gobsmacked at the fabulous styling of their event, a very creative soul had spent hours building houses out of biscuits and they were utterly amazing, my first thought was ‘How can we make one like that for our Christmas this year?’
Move over gingerbread houses, you are so yesterday!
The room was divided into sections to showcase the hundreds of products on display and I was mesmerised by the lot. The gingerbread bunting, the vintage look cards, the do it yourself gift section including Belgian chocolate truffles and a Croque en Bouche that will stun your guests.
There are more tree decorations than your tree can handle and seeing as every year I buy the girls and my grandchildren a new one each I shall be stuck for choice this year
and this birdcage?
Talking of birdcages I loved this card holder and the key holder box at the top of the picture
There were so many gifts I think I have my entire family covered, love these vintage games
I was also impressed with the prices of the toys, this wooden dolls house complete with furniture only costs £20!
Then of course I took a look at the food products. You will find turkeys, salmon, meats and even lobster available. There will be a choice fo cheeses to blow you away and some very good ideas too – check out this brie filled with truffle
Chocolate in every form, including turkey
and the above mentioned DIY Belgian truffles
This radio tin filled with chocolates caught my eye. Isn’t it gorgeous?
and my girls will adore this very clever cake made out of individual cupcakes that build into a cake centre piece
I would love to have an excuse to buy this Italian Proscuitto that retails at £75 and comes with stand, knife and apron
And I really must get my hands on this heart lit with lights which will look fabulous in my home this Christmas
All in all lots of things to look our for at Tesco this autumn, products available online from October – race you!
