It’s that time of year again! Topher and I had a great time at the Ideal Home Show last year so when I was offered a free ticket to go again this year I said yes straight away. Since Topher works during the week at a school now, I brought along Emma.
There was an eat and drink section of the show last year but now they’ve gone all out and given it an official festival right alongside the home show. Being a foodie, this was definitely the bit I was looking forward to the most!
There were so many amazing stalls and we had such a good time trying samples and storing away cards for a later date. I may have also purchased some flavoured tequila! It was too much to resist. Otherwise I was very well behaved with my purse. I do have a honeymoon to save for after all.
It wasn’t too hard to find the rum…
How cool is this little drinks van? I wish we could have had something like this for our wedding!
How awesome is this fudge? So pretty!
And this Pimm’s teapot was amazing. I wish I had one of these in my garden.
There was loads going on from workshops, to live demonstrations and we walked away with so many ideas.
Then it was over to the Ideal Home Show section.
My favourite bit definitely had to be the little room set ups they had. I don’t even have kids but I want this room below. The wallpaper is gorgeous.
This room really makes me happy but I now want to go on holiday!
I really like the wallpaper in both the room above and below though I don’t think I’d use it in such a large room. I have an idea to use it in our downstairs bathroom to give it a bit of personality. At the moment it just looks like more of a store cupboard than a guest bath.
