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 .
To take weight off my tired feet I sat and watched a wonderful live food demonstration followed by a beauty demonstration. I certainly learnt  a few good tips both in cooking and make up.In all the day was wonderful and very enjoyable.I hope that the 5 winners of the Giveaway who received the tickets enjoyed the show as much as I did.
