I was recently invited along to the Waitrose Christmas event and I saw hundreds of products I want to remember come this autumn I’m hoping you’ll agree with me that they are really lovely, take a look.
First up a few decorations and flowers for the house. I loved the jam jar centre pieces that would make a wonderful Christmas table. Waitrose have their own British Christmas trees in three different sizes this year and some fabulous bouquets perfect for all occasions.
I also loved this DIY crate to make up the perfect hamper for a gift. the crate will only cost £5 and it’s gorgeous so will make a fabulous and useful gift to use when empty.
And then the colour scheme for the tree and decorations was simply stunning this year
On to the food halls which Waitrose are known so well for.
Christmas dinner ideas
Nibbles made easy? Heston’s thought of some for us and these pate’s in pretty Kilner jars will do just the trick, chicken liver, duck and mushroom too and they were delicious.
There were plenty of starter ideas but we’re heading straight to the main course and Waitrose this year will be offering rolled turkey breast in muslin for easy cooking and serving, it was delicious. Also keep an eye out for the stuffing balls shaped and decorated to look like mini Christmas puddings.
Then on to more Heston and this bit you’re going to LOVE – make sure you get one, an Ultimate Chocolate Bar, packaged in a box to look like a bar of gold this dessert will blow your mind.
