Happy Holidays....

Hi All!


Hope you are all well and getting somewhat organised for Christmas day. At last I have all my main  gift shopping done and all that is left is the big food shop. Not one of my favourite jobs but my little helper will be available for that trip when she gets her school holidays later today!

This weekend I will be concentrating on tidying up the house and fixing some last minute decorations .... I love that tablescape idea above with the candles surrounded by a bauble display:) I  really must do a little festive baking with the girls, I hadn't much time up to now for that:) There is nothing like a homemade mince pie in my book, all the shop bought ones taste doughy and dry to me!


 Laura has a few friends popping over for drinks Saturday night so we will be trying out some lovely cocktails. 

I hope you all have a good weekend and get to take some well earned time out to enjoy the festive season:) I'm hoping this nasty damp weather we have at the moment disappears fast, would much rather a return to the crisp frosty mornings we had earlier in the month.

  1. Those cocktails look delicious and festive too with the red and green! Good job you have a little helper today. We've eaten all the mince pies so had to make more! By the way, I love your red and white tree - really pretty!
    Have a good weekend.

  3. I love how the cocktails are served on a cake stand and they look delicious as well. I do agree with dry store bought mince pies. We didn't get to make ours this year. If you've got time you're invited to a Christmas tree link-up. Come join us!
