A Handmade Christmas with Laura Ashley

Today I wanted to share with you a little Christmas post before I go full swing in to halloween...

Last week I attended the Laura Ashley #handmadechristmas bloggers event at Homemade London in Marble Arch. Where Laura Ashley had transformed the venue into a lovely Winter Wonderland, complete with a large white reindeer, a beautifully decorated Christmas tree, pretty sparkly festive decorations and wonderfully iced Biskies based on their Summer Palace print.

I was particularly loving the star fairy lights, Christmas glitter candles and the bird decorations.

Downstairs they had set up a red and green grotto with three sparkly craft tables where you could 'Decorate a stocking', 'Make Christmas cards' and 'Craft a Christmas flower crown'.

It was such a fun evening catching up with Jeska from Lobster & Swan, whilst we made Christmas Flower crowns and had our hair done in vintage styles from Lipstick & Curls.

Meeting the lovely Natasha from Candy Pop who's been a Flickr friend for years and blogger Jodi from A Handmade Cottage.

On leaving the fab event we were given goodie bags, mine had a pretty glass Snowflake Bauble and a mother of pearl photo frame that I have already filled with a cute card from Curio & Curio.

Thank you to the wonderful Laura Ashley ladies who put on such a great event.

Check out the lovely Laura Ashley Christmas shop to see all their wonderful Christmas gifts and accessories.

Have a sweet day!
