Xmas Ideal Home show ~Earls Court London
simply.food recently hosted a giveaway for the Xmas Ideal Home show tickets. The event was a santas grotto for shoppers. I visited the show on Friday the 18th and It was truely wonderful.
The whole place was wonderfully decked in a white carpet of artificial snow which generated a wonderful christmassy ambience. In the entrance visitors were showered witha flurry from the snow machine as they entered the show.
The ground floor had Christmas trees of all shapes and sizes as were some wonderful exibits all related to the home interiors.My favorite was the upper floor where I was transported to a food bazzar and crafts section .
Wonderful aromas filled the air of delicious multinational cuisines.Many cheeses, mediterranean delights and cakes and bakes were all just too tempting.
The beautiful little craft stalls with many unique hand made gifts were truely magnificient and the many kitchen and home gadgets had me enthralled for hours and I had to fight hard not to purchase every gadget I fell in love with. Beautiful christmas decorations glisting on the shelves were all so inviting and the choices were incredible and very difficult to choose what to buy .
