A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to an event at John Lewis in Kingston. Amazingly behind the scenes in the shop they had created a little secret Christmas house. What was once offices is now a beautiful living room, dining room, office, luxurious bedroom and cosy little kids room all decked out for the festive season.
The house was created to give staff an impression of all the christmas ranges and how they work together. It looks absolutely fantastic and was so inspiring, it really put me into a festive mood. The staff at the store were all absolutely lovely and talked us through the winter ranges while we sipped on prossecco and nibbles on delicious canapés.
As usual I took way too many photos on the day and I want to share as many of them as possible with you, so grab a cup of tea and a mince-pie as this post is going to be a long one! I’ve dived them up into different areas of the house and gift ideas.
The gorgeous living room was decorated for Christmas in a beautiful silver and white theme with glass baubles and beautiful glittery stags. I loved the TV in the fireplace which was a creative touch and the John Lewis advert playing on the TV, I love Monty the Penguin!

For the Kids:
I also loved these retro children toys, which are reissues from Fisher Price. Rob’s mum still has the little record player from when her kids were small so I was delighted to see the reproduction one which is identical. Seriously tempted to get all of them for Lila!
Time to Relax and Pamper:
After looking round the house and filling up on delicious nibbles, we were treated to a little pamper with Espa who offer treatments and beautiful products at John Lewis. Their luxury products are absolutely beautiful. I was gifted a little goody bag full of lovely sample size products which I will be reviewing separately.
I’d just like to thank the wonderful staff at John Lewis Kingston for putting together such a great event and for sharing the secret Christmas house with us. It really was such a fun evening. I was also given a very generous goody bag by John Lewis containing lot’s of Christmas treats which I will also try and do a blog post on very soon.
