All I want for Christmas…


Snowman
Ho, ho, ho… My personalised Christmas boxes are perfect for adding that special touch to your gift. Fill with treats or keep that awkward shaped pressie a surprise. Wrap with tissue paper, pop in the box and simply tie with the personalised tag. They cost £1.50 and you can choose from 3 festive characters – a snowman, santa and a reindeer. Purchase them from my Etsy shop.

baublesYou can also pop them on the table along with the turkey and fill them with activities to keep your little elves amused at munchtime! I found some fab goodies from Not On The Highstreet that will keep them entertained…

Holidays are coming…

Christmas Invites group

There are 42 sleeps till Christmas and now that baby E has his new winter woolie its officially nearly Christmas time! I’ve been busy in the grotto, designing the new Christmas collection. Its time to plan those festive parties and to start sending out the invites.  The holidays really are coming! On the countdown to Christmas, each week I’m going to bring you my favourite Christmas party ideas to make your party a Christmas cracker. I’m so excited this year for Christmas especially as baby E is getting more aware of everything around him. I’m trying to think of somewhere to put the tree where he isn’t going to pull it down!

1. These lovely paper angels can stand or hang. Made out of gorgeous patterns, they can make great place cards, decorations, or gift tags. 2. Love, love, love these magical tissue paper honeycomb balls! I can just picture baby E’s face as I put these up and imagine lots of pointing to the ceiling! These hanging paper balls lend an air of festivity and nostalgia and look stunning combined in different sizes and colours to match and compliment any colour scheme and setting. 3. A Christmas decoration with a difference, this characterful reindeer head will look fab on any wall. Handmade from grey brown felt, with a berry red nose and of course antlers too!
