That's it, we are on our last week of advent ideas, only 7 more to go!!
As children we always had a table present, very strange you may think. As we sat down for our family Christmas lunch there would be a plate of presents waiting for us, just something small but enough to keep us focused throughout the meal! It would take pride of place towering over our meal.
I can not claim this idea as my own - all down to my mum. I have just updated the idea with white tissue paper parcels and red and white ribbons.....
....a little country check, fresh stripe, chantel, snowflake, swiss dot and not forgetting gingham. Thanks Mum!
There are no rules or guide lines when you take part in one of our ribbon challenges - you can do what ever you fancy with our ribbon. The creation that Lucy sent us was stunning. A full size advent Gingerbread calendar, a different gingerbread man or biscuit for everyday. Sadly several of the biscuits were broken, a shame the post office didn't treat it with more care.
I tried to repair what I could.......
but I am much happier with a needle and thread then an icing bag! - Sorry Lucy.
I took these photos when I returned from Paris, we were very busy in the office and I had left the advent hanging on the wall while I quickly went to check that the photos had come out ok. I must have left it longer than I thought because on my return to the warehouse I captured this....
.......ummmmm that is gingerbread number 1!!!
Lucy, I can say your creation went down well with all the team.....yummmie.
