Christmas in October
This week the lovely Christmas elves that help Santa at John Lewis, invited me along to see what they have been up to.
My goodness they have been busy.
They explained that this year there will be five themes, the main one is Woodland Wonder. Then there is Forest Festival, Rural Life, Vintage Market and Odyssey.
The elves explained the various themes. Woodland Wonder is pared back colourful and bright. There are lovely lazer cut shapes and interesting lighting.
The Forest Festival is especially for children it includes the charity panda and lots of colourful forest creatures.
Rural life is inspired by Christmas's past and nostalgic, so think pine cones and lots of greens and reds. The adult Christmas stockings are fab.
Vintage market, is all subtle pastel shades and inspired by vintage Christmas's. The soft gold and pearl shades are gorgeous.
Odyssey is more grown up and modern, there is hand blown glass baubles and shapes inspired by technology, I think this is my favourite one.
Other than the themes there are all the usual fab John Lewis stuff, including Christmas food. Nom.
And even Christmas presents for all your pets.
I am loving the Alessi cat bowls.
If you do want to know more about this, those darn clever elves have only gone and made a video about it.
So if I don't say it later - Happy Christmas folks xxx
