Get ready for Christmas with the Spirit of Christmas Fair

Get ready for Christmas with the Spirit of Christmas Fair

We know it may feel a bit early to be thinking of Christmas now, but it's actually in just 2 months, can you believe it? You might even still be looking at outdoor furniture or accessories on our website but here at Barbed, we think a little bit of planning goes a long way to find the perfect Christmas gift for your loved ones, instead of having to do some stressful last-minute shopping. We know however that it cannot always be helped, so we like to be prepared for both instances! If you like to get your Christmas planning done early, we're happy to help, and if you need last-minute presents, we're here to assist you too! If you want to start gift-hunting early and get into the Christmas mood, join us at the Spirit of Christmas Fair!

What, where, when?

The Spirit of Christmas Fair takes place every year at Olympia London - Olympia Grand, to be precise. From 2nd to 8th November, you're invited to browse the stands and uncover unique, elegant, stylish gifts for everyone, with a week of festive shopping. Hundreds of exhibitors are attending the fair this year to offer you a variety of present ideas for all tastes, and you can easily make it a day out for the whole family, as there are plenty of food options too. Christmas carols and Christmassy smells will welcome you and help you really get into the spirit of Christmas - that is if you're not in the festive mood already! If you're crafty, you will love the various workshops organised by House & Garden, mostly food-related (such as champagne masterclasses, or sessions on how to hand-ice biscuits, prepare festive canapés or the best Christmas desserts) but food is not the only topic of the workshops, don't worry! Indeed, if you need assistance and advice on flower arrangements, trimmed corsage or luxury gift bags, you can have it with some dedicated workshops!

Barbed presents Ester & Erik at the Spirit of Christmas Fair

We've been going to the Spirit of Christmas Fair for 4 years now and we must admit we can't get enough of it! We love the atmosphere, and above all we really enjoy meeting so many Christmas enthusiasts. We'd love to bring our whole showroom to the fair (this year our themes are natural, with wood and skins) and we have plenty of new exclusive gift ideas this year in our Barnes showroom, but the fair is the perfect opportunity to showcase the Ester & Erik ranges and vast colour palette. We will show several ranges of these gorgeous handmade candles from Denmark, accompanied by a selection of candle wreaths and candle holders, which are ideal to decorate your home or most importantly your Christmas table. These beautiful candles certainly set the scene for a truly beautiful Christmas feel and many of our customers come back and see us every year to get their traditional colours or even try a new glorious hue!

If there is one Christmas Fair or Christmas market you should definitely be going to this year in the London area, we can certainly recommend the Spirit of Christmas Fair. So why don't you visit us at stand G16 and get into the Christmas spirit from 2nd to 8th November? Book your ticket(s) now and get ready for stress-free end of year festivities!
