I adore Christmas. In our family we all do and make a huge fuss of it. It’s also Holly’s birthday a week before which just adds to the excitement a little bit more. One of our traditions is to visit our local garden and home centre, Bents, at Christmas time to see their stunning Christmas displays and get into the festive spirit. This year I was given the opportunity to get a sneak peek at their range and I jumped at the chance.
The store definitely didn’t disappoint and was decked out in all its glory. There were six sections of decorations, themed with colour and featuring displays at each end, as well as their captivating Christmas house scenes which my family adore.
Their colour schemes ranged from the traditional red, green and golds to the graceful pink, white and silvers. With added garnishing of feathers, glitter and tinsel, we were drawn from aisle to aisle, gazing at it all.
Their room displays were as fantastic as ever, from cosy fireplaces decked with wreaths to glamorous staircases covered in roses and ribbon.
The biggest trends I noticed were the muted colours and soft palettes of rose gold, dusky pink and sparkling white alongside various creatures, grandly announcing their presence with lights and glitter.
There are tons of festive goings-on happening in the run-up to Christmas. Today saw their Christmas displays officially open to the public and next month you can see Santa arriving along with his reindeer. In December you can have breakfast and tea with Santa and there is also a tots part for the little ones. These events book up fast so definitely visit their website for all the information and to reserve your place!
We will definitely be heading back to Bents probably on several occasions, to soak up the Christmas spirit as well as add to our village collection. A huge thank you to Bents for the chance to see their displays a bit early and get me well and truly in the festive spirit!
