Tesco Christmas 2013

tesco xmas collectionYou 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

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
