It’s not just any Summer Fete…

Yesterday Alexo and i popped along to the M&S summer interiors press preview. It was so much fun!

It was themed along the lines of an English Summer Fete, bright colours, an array of summery fizzy cocktails, sea-side style entertainers blowing balloons and wearing old fashioned swimming costumes! As always the waiters and waitresses were lovely and friendly, serving tiny versions of British classics – Scampi and Chips, Fish and Chips, Mini Pasties, Popcorn Cones and an abundance of cupcakes. The collection wasn’t bad either! Some great bright cushions in leafy prints, shiny candy-coloured holdalls and some beautiful summer furniture pieces will be hitting the stores come spring.

A great afternoon and just what was needed to brighten up a dreary Febuary day – executed in the true polished M&S style. Thanks team! : )
