Celebrate Family in your Home this Christmas

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

This is my last post before Christmas and to be honest I pondered for a while on what to feature.  I could have talked about beautiful decorations, table settings or gift inspiration but nothing felt right.  Christmas is only made special because of the people we share it with.  No matter if you spend it with your family, friends or work colleagues, those people become your family for the most magical day of the year.  It only seemed right to celebrate family no matter what that looks like.

[caption id="attachment_4316" align="aligncenter" width="620"]Quoits, £13.50 Quoits, £13.50[/caption] Young and old alike can join in a traditional game such as bingo.
