Christmas Fayre


Thanks for popping in. 

Aren't there a lot of Christmas Fayres around at the moment.  They conjure up the feeling of festive spirit before you go but in reality they are a bit of a squash.  You are carried on a tide of eager people past all the colourful stalls crammed full with tempting goods. Royal Ascot Racecourse was no exception. Packed to the rafters but with small areas of calm, a few things caught my eye especially in the food section.

A delicious Christmas scent wafted over from Scented Floral Creations

A tree decorated with rolled up magazines at Papa Razzi, whatever next!

A few other ideas for trees from Stonecrop Nurseries

A sparkly one

Hampers full of tasty snacks from The Truckle Cheese Company

Couldn't resist these yummy cakes from Farmhouse Direct Ltd.

How about a bird box?

Or a carefully cut out card from Cardology

Some twinkly lights

Or some wobbly ornaments.
 These cakes had to come home with us - summer fruits frangipane tart, coconut tart and an orange chocolate nut shortbread. Yum!

After the battle, a spot of fresh air was most welcome as we headed to the tunnel to Ascot Heath in the centre of the racecourse. More to follow.



  1. I like the citrus/ floral stack. It looks beautiful. And the cakes too, of course! xx

    1. There seem to be a lot more of the citrus stacks around this year, such a great idea. x

  2. I agree Christmas fairs sound like fun but they are often a mad squash. Looks like the cakes were the best reward :)

    1. The cakes were delicious, it was nice to find something a bit different for a change. x

  3. What lovely things to see and enjoy! Glad you had a good time!

  4. I just love Christmas Fayres.
    Great photo's here, it looks fun.

    All the best Jan

    1. Thanks Jan, yes it was packed full with wonderful things.
