Christmas shopping, Tea with Santa and Feeling festive at Wyevale Garden Centres…

After last weekend my festive barometer is overflowing with joy. Our little family have all the festive feels over here. Bridgemere – a Wyevale Garden Centre is such a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon to get you in the spirit of Christmas. We’ve been visiting as a family for years and always love kicking off our festive celebrations wandering through their displays so when the team invited us over to experience their Christmas Celebrations we were all so excited. Christmas is coming. Or should I say Santa is coming (you know like in Elf?).

On Sunday we spent the day shopping for baubles and lights. Picked out festive treats and more. Shopped for gold coins. We sought out Santa in his Grotto, chatted with Mrs Claus and her Elf, Oscar – planted baby conifers and made our Christmas wishes. And lastly enjoyed a little festive afternoon tea with the BIG man himself. What a day. George Archie you are a very lucky boy and I cannot wait for December to arrive. I love how excited he is for the festive season. We have everything we need to decorate our house and more – Wyevale have thought of everything. How blooming exciting.

How do you spend the build up to Christmas? Don’t forget to visit your local Wyevale Garden Centre. All that is left to do here is turn our own home into our own festive grotto. Christmas is coming.

    Gorgeous photos! I do love garden centres at Christmas. You’ve reminded me I need to pay a visit to our local one. I love how they transform into winter wonderlands at this time of year. It was always a favourite when my daughter was little. Have a great week x

    I have not visited a garden centre for a few years, but this is making me want to visit now. Love that you got to have a festive afternoon tea with Father Christmas himself, I bet that was so magical. Ah I miss our visits to see him x
