There is nothing we like more than dressing up and going out for a good gossip dinner with our girlfriends but at over the festive period that comes spinning round on its axis and we love to dress up to stay in. There is something so heartwarming about inviting friends round for drinks and foodie treats, Michael Bublé crooning in the background, bottles popping and mini mince pie’s being munched. Luckily for us Marks and Spencer asked us to host an evening to fully capture the festive spirit, and in true B&B style there was lots of fizz flowing and delicious sweet treat tasting.

Like probably most of your reading this, life is pretty busy. We work hard and so we like to play hard occasionally and as it’s the festive season: let the playing commence.

Always striving to be the hostess with the mostess when we have guests round we usually have little time to release our inner Nigella’s and cook up a storm in the kitchen. Here is where our knights in shining armour come along ~ Mr. Marks & Mr. Spencer.

When spreading a little festive cheer at home Marks and Spencer are here to help. With an endless stream of people popping round {and bottles popping} they’ve made it super easy to pretend you are a domestic goddess as this Christmas season they have bought their Food Hall online with a festive selection of food available NOW.

If you are anything like us we’d much rather cosy up and enjoy our company {no need to spend hours in the kitchen} and ordering food online is just so flippin’ easy. Plus as we all know, M&S food is a true British Tradition. You know you are going to get the bees knees. 

You can get a huge selection of delicious savoury food, ready to pop in the oven, but we opted for delicious sweet treat bites like these delicious mini mince pies, wheat and gluten free gold star brownie bites and honeycomb crunch bites. Perfect bitesize party nibbles.

Mouth watering yet?

 As its the holidays it would also be rude not to serve your guests some cake! This snowflake and bauble cake and this White Chocolate Snowball Wreath are not only easy on the eye they go deliciously well equally with a glass of fizz or a naughty night time coffee. In probably one of the best pieces of design we’ve seen recently, the assemble your own stand for this cheese tower is a piece of genius! Pop together in minutes et voila, a very festive, no fuss stand to display delicious chunks of cheese!

They also have a beautiful selection of homeware to accompany your food order, after all #twinningiswinning.

Match your Christmas cake with a pretty pattern china plate or we are in love with this gold mirrored tray which makes for the most decadent canapé serving plate. These nutcrackers are literally the cutest, love the white and gold guy as much as Father Christmas himself.

So if you are looking to give yourself a little break this festive season, let Marks and Spencer do all the hard work so you can fake the domestic goddesses while having all the fun. That is really winning.

Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!
