Festive Friday!

Had a great #festivefriday today in association with The GCA. Friday November the 27th starts the spread of good will and happiness. Popped in the post greeting card sends that will be received to officially open up December to Christmas! A sparkly snowstorm of festivity to get everyone in the mood.

There isn’t a better way to get things started nice and early and it’s thanks to the efforts of the GCA that Festive Friday has come about.

Christmas is a special time, showing family and friends how much they are loved and cared for. It can also be a season that highness loneliness to those on there own. By being inspired to give a card to someone lets a smile in to melt away any winter blues.

We love the feeling of receiving cards so naturally at Belly Button we’ve fully embraced this tradition.

Lots of Christmas card writing, mixed in with our official christmas light switch on got us fully into the festive spirit!
Rachel had a huge pile of cards ready for the post!
The Christmas lights where switched on and everyone was in the festive spirit!
Even Tom had chosen a card to send!
Happy Festive Friday everybody! All we need to do now is what treats Santa has in stall ;) x

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at The Hollies Farmshop

Popped by The Hollies Farmshop last week to take a peek at their magical 'Christmas Barn' at the Little Budworth store.

Angie and the team were busy filling the shelves with a huge selection of Christmas cards when I arrived. Amongst the Christmas candles, gourmet chocolates, artisan biscuits, fun gifts and sparkling lights they had different areas of Christmas looks. Our favourite was a copper and gold look with a glisten of frosted snow. Robin our North West agent was even there!

We loved the #barn copper light sign behind the counter.

While I was walking around fairy lights were being strung around huge pine branches and twigs. Such a magical atmosphere to get everyone into the spirit.

Vintage santa and snowman baubles where hanging from this tree in traditional red and green for a nostalgic Christmas feel.

After a tour around the farmshop, Christmas marquee, Christmas Barn and luxury holiday lodges I took in the beautiful Cheshire view from their Hollies Cafe.

Thanks to everyone at The Hollies for such a memorable day.
