So as 2011 draws to a close a few pictures to share of Christmas Day at our house. Santa was very generous, the food at Christmas lunch with an Italian family seemed never ending but the smiles said it all.
I hope your Christmas Day was as wonderful as ours.
I love hearing those magical words on Christmas morning – “Santa has been!”
Have a wonderful New Year – I can’t wait to share more and continue the journey in 2012.
There is a lot of excitement in our house with only 3 sleeps to go so I am going to sign off with sweet wishes to you all for a wonderful Christmas celebration with your family.
2011 has been an amazing year for me, for my family and for Sweet Style and I thank you for your incredible support.
The store will remain open for your orders over the Christmas/New Year period and we will ship out your products as you need them – please let me know if things are urgent and we will do our best to get them to you with plenty of time. I am looking forward to a little down time with my family in the coming weeks but I will still be around and popping in and out if I have interesting things to report or photos to show.
I look forward to exciting times and new possibilities in 2012.
As we race towards the 25th December here are a few pictures from the first of our two Christmas lunches with our family – last Sunday we had a gorgeous day with my side of the family celebrating both Christmas and my mum’s birthday.
A last minute change of colour theme to red and white but hey last minute changes can be good!
My immediate family – my mum, my sister and her two kids and my nan (my dad’s mum)
So now we head to Christmas Day and the decision of whether to go with red and white again or to mix it up – can see a last minute decision coming again!
Ok so it is only 5 sleeps until Christmas – I know it is getting tight for deliveries but if you are in a central location it may still be doable if you get your orders in quick (like today!). If however you just can’t work out what to order I do have the perfect last minute gift for you – the Sweet Style Gift Voucher – simple and easy and arrives in your inbox (or your partners inbox) within a few hours of you placing your order.
The great news about this is that Christmas gets extended so you can then go shopping from the comfort of your home on Boxing day – what could be better! So what to buy – well it has been a while since I have given a new product update here on the blog (of course if you follow along on Facebook you know what is happening on a daily basis) so here are three of my faves that have arrived in the shop recently.
First up the stunning new drinks dispensers – she comes in two styles. This is the plain version with a glass lid and base. There is also a lovely cut glass version which has a silver lid and base – check the website here for more details
Elegant new white cake stands have also arrived in the past week.
The Large and Small Sabine Glass Jars are currently my favourite of the many candy jars I stock – they looks so pretty on any dessert or candy table and also make a beautiful gift when presented full of yummy treats.
It is always so lovely to receive a make-over and to bring in 2012 this is the new me!
I hope you like it – clean and fresh and more in line with what I have been up to lately.
So who made it look so pretty you ask – the very talented Tabitha Emma.
If you are looking for a new look she is the person to call (or email as it is in this day and age). She has a fantastic website to look through and also a wonderful blog. Drop in and say hi when you can.
