The event was held in the gorgeous Paper Mill Studios where Jamie Oliver’s show has been filmed. The kitchen is just amazing with a conservatory style roof allowing light to flood in.
The main room was decorated beautifully with a giant lit wreath, Christmas Tree, and ribbon canopy. I loved the colours and will be thinking about creating more of a colourful theme for our Christmas lunch this year perhaps with the addition of metallics.
We were treated to some very pretty treats of colourful meringues, donuts and cupcakes. I’d love some of these for Christmas day!
After enjoying some treats we headed to the lovely tables for some making! There were lots of great activities set up and we were able to make our own Christmas crackers, pom poms, badges, and gift tags. Geraldine from Little Big Bell was also demonstrating how to wrap gifts beautifully.
Christmas crackers are really fun to make using coloured paper and then decorated any way you like with stickers or stamps. We filled ours with a candy cane, confetti and a beautiful badge. I think there is something special about making your own gift tags and crackers. The event really highlighted how lovely it is to have more of a home-made Christmas. The best part is that you can create items in any colour you like and build an entire theme around it.
The lovely ladies from Prettly Beauty were on hand to give us gorgeous locks! I chose a braid and Miss R chose a braid with curls.
Another highlight was the amazing wall just outside Paper Mill Studios. It is pastel heaven!
