Visiting The Ideal Home Show

Recently, I mentioned that I would be getting the chance to attend my first event on a press pass. Finally this past Saturday that experience happened. I attended the Ideal Home Show at Christmas 2017 in London and it was an interesting experience. I took my hubby along with me and we enjoyed our day out.When we arrived, the atmosphere had a very Christmasy feel to it as you can see from the sign at the entrance.

The event ran from November 22nd to November 26th. We attended on November 25th. This is the UK's biggest seasonal event and features hundreds of exhibitors under one roof. New for 2017 was the Eat and Drink Festival running alongside the show. As we were attending the Ideal Home Show, we were also able to attend the festival too which featured artisan food producers and a variety of food brands. The best of food and drink was on offer at the Eat and Drink Festival.

The Ideal Home Show featured such a wide variety of things about home and lifestyle, such as: interiors, home accessories, home improvements, food, cooking demonstrations, crafts, Christmas decorations, toys, games, kitchenware, flowers, gifts of every kind and seemingly a bit of everything. There was also wonderful singers who performed from the Christmas bandstand. There was so much to see within this interesting market atmosphere.

One of my favorite experiences during my time there was having a short chat with a young lady at the bloomon exhibit. She was so friendly, professional and informative. It was a joy to speak with her. Bloomon delivers gorgeous flowers right to you! You just choose your size and style, tell them where and when you would like your flowers delivered and they come right to you. They have amazing designs which can be uniquely crafted by their in-house experts. The delivery is free...you only pay for the flowers. Bloomon's flowers come straight from the grower and are delivered in water. They cut out the middleman so the customer gets the freshest flowers. I adore flowers, so I was really drawn to their beautiful creations. You can learn more about bloomon here.

There was truly something for everyone to enjoy at the Ideal Home Show and the experience certainly got me into the holiday mood. Here are a few more photos that I took just to give you an idea of some of the sights.

The Ideal Home Show 2018 returns to Olympia London between March 17th and April 2nd. Tickets are available now from www.idealhomeshow.co.uk.

Disclosure: I did not receive any free products or services. I only received a press pass to this event.
