Anybody who knows me well knows I love Christmas; I love everything about it and I am constantly trying to bring forward the day that we put the tree up (as husband tries to push it further away!)
So when I was invited to spend a Christmas Themed evening with Prezzy Box a couple of weeks ago – it just escalated my excitement level even more, i do not need an excuse to talk Christmas in October but it is good to have one.
So, a couple of weeks ago I joined several other bloggers and headed to Baresca in Nottingham (which is lovely and we will definitely be visiting again) to enjoy a festive evening!
On arrival I was pleased to see that the room had been decorated as if Christmas had arrived all ready – the tree was up and there was lots of present ideas’s to see!
There were workshops running too, I took part in the Christmas Wrapping workshop and had so much fun. Carolyn was brilliant and showed us lots of ideas of how to wrap you pressies without spending and small fortune and they still look fantastic! I made my own bow and it is definitely something I am going to do at Christmas!
I then moved on to a ‘Make your own Fragrance’ session with The Perfume Studio. It was brilliant we were told all about how it works and how different blends are smelt – it was really interesting! I, along with the others, were able to make our own fragrance there and then and even got to name it!
I was delighted to see as well that you can buy ‘at home’ sets, a perfect gift maybe!
I really enjoyed this session; I think it is a brilliant idea for birthdays, hen nights, girls nights and a regular night!
I had a lovely evening out and it really got me in the mood for Christmas!
We were lucky to listen to some hints and tips from the lovely Becky Sheeran (you tube star from Talk Becky Talk) and Prezzy Box. The rest of the evening was spent with a glass of prosecco, nibbles and checking out the pressies. I got lots of ideas for those I have to buy for this year – here are some of my favourites (all available from Prezzy Box).
