Last December we took my sister and nephew to Disneyland Paris to get us all in the festive spirit
I couldn't think of a more magical and festive place... can you?
Dressed in our Minnie ears, my sister and I might have been more excited than my little nephew
Disneyland really reminded me of who-ville from the movie the Grinch. It has to be the most festive place in the world!?
Is there anything more satisfying than a tower of Tinkerbell's?
We discovered getting THE shot, is not as easy when small children and excited crowds are involved
There, we finally got something to work with... insta hubb's to the rescue!
Disney is so picture perfect, everywhere is a photo opp!
We met a very friendly Donald... Chase was not so sure though
And than it was time for the parade!
And it as everything we hoped it would be
And just when we thought Disney couldn't be more magical, the sun went down and the fairy lights came on!
And the evening ended in the most spectacular fireworks and lights show we had ever seen!
One of our beloved Christmas traditions is our trip to London to shop for presents and get our Christmas vibe on. London is such a special place at Christmas, and really puts you in the Christmas spirit.
And Festive afternoon tea at the Dorchester is a total must . It is without a doubt the most festive afternoon tea in London. And it has particular meaning to me as this was where I took my bridesmaids after shopping for my wedding dress.
The foyer is lined with trees and at the weekend they have carol singers. If you choose to have festive tea in the week, you can enjoy the resident pianist while have your tea
With Christmas tree shaped pastry’s it a festive heaven... and they taste amazing too
My cranberry cocktail not only looked super cute, but was the perfect after shopping pick me up
And as Paris is my favourite city, I had to go for the Paris tea... and it was yummy
I really can’t recommend the promenade enough for a fabulous festive experience, for me it wouldn't be Christmas without it...
A stroll through the London streets is a festive experience in itself, with Christmas trees lighting the way...
We take a walk up to the national history museum for some mulled wine and a skate around the ice rink
And than it’s off for our annual trip the ballet to see the nutcracker. We love both the royal opera house and the Colosseum, and switch up which one we choose each year. How amazing is this Christmas tree made from ballet pumps at the Colosseum?
We love to finish our night at Covent Garden to take in the beautiful decorations and a night cap
I can’t think of a more Christmassy way to spend the day ...can you? I’d love to hear about your festive plans for Christmas!
Festive tea at the Dorchester is available weekdays from November 20, 2017 to January 1, 2018
Weekends December 30 – 31, 2017 only
