A fabulously festive Christmas
16 December 2015
Here at Harpers we’ve dived head first into the festivities and indulging in all the touches that make Christmas special to us.
Adorning our front door is a wreath of winter Spruce and frosted Asparagus Fern, complemented with twinkling miniature Christmas trees set in stunning vintage grey Dolly Pots dotted around our new courtyard patio.
For our Christmas celebrations this year, we’ll be serving a classic cocktail to bring out the best of Slingsby Gin, a fabulous new gin we’ve discovered from Harrogate, perfectly matched with Lillet Blanc, Cointreau, Amaretto and Orange Bitters. And serving delicious morsels of Whiskey Hot Smoked Salmon with Spiced Butter on Rye Bread, Ham Hock with Pineapple Chutney on Sour Dough Toast and Partridge, Cranberry and Juniper Sausage Rolls.
Our dinner guests will sit down to individually gift wrapped Fortnum and Mason boxes filled with delicious Italian Gianduja chocolates, wrapped beautifully in matt navy paper and decorated with mistletoe. You can pick up this on trend look by visiting ‘Not on the High Street’ for something similar.
The farmhouse is set with twinkly Christmas trees and baskets of contorted willow with glass teardrop baubles filled with tea lights and immersed in the scent of Ralph Lauren’s ‘Holiday’ classic candle, adding a festive elegant fragrance. So now we’re ready to get the fire roaring with burning pine cones and enjoy a truly fabulous Christmas with our loved ones.
Wishing one and all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year.
