It’s Coming! House of Fraser’s Christmas in July Event 2016

Yes, it may be July but the Christmas countdown has begin…think of this post as your 5 month warning! It may seem a bit off kilter to be checking out what we will be wearing at all the Christmas do’s you will be attending and what you are hoping to get in your stocking whilst it’s a balmy 21 degrees outside. But once we stepped inside House of Fraser’s winter wonderland, we couldn’t wait till the big day the jolly fat man will be coming down our chimney, hopefully with a plethora of House of Fraser‘s finest. Click this way and prepare to feel friskily festive, fillies!

The window declared “It’s Coming!” and we couldn’t argue as we crossed the threshold from sunny Soho Square into the ice white festivities of House of Fraser’s Christmas in July event. After signing in and collecting a cake pop that Willy Wonka would be envious of, we ascended the sweeping staircase to discover what marvels that will be in-store this Christmas 2016.

At the top of the stairs we had our first hard decision…Candy Floss or Elderflower & Apple Martini? We decided to go for one of each and watched as the magic happened before our eyes by our uber skilled bar-tender. Drink in hand, we may have quenched our thirst, but our taste for fashion, lifestyle, beauty and gifts galore was insatiable! Onwards, to gift land!

Draw in by the luxurious scent of gorgeous candles glimmering and flickering, the gift showcase room was a veritable treasure trove of trinkets, sumptuous sets and covetable bags galore. Shelved in a cavalcade of coloured nooks, the offering has something for everyone this Christmas that will make them feel loved and that extra bit adored!
