10 weeks today...

and it will be Christmas Day!.... working in retail Christmas is planned a year in advance, but there is always a ripple of excitement when I exit Bond street station and see that the Christmas wraps have gone up around the legendary big yellow store windows. This means that the final countdown has begun and that Christmas will land across all floors within the store over the week, culminating with the big window reveal.
This years Christmas has a story book feel with the windows being the front cover to the Selfridges story... filled with wonder, excitement, fairy-tale legends and some special guests!.... pop back over the coming weeks for a sneak peak into the Enchanted Christmas on 400 Oxford Street.
 
With the Christmas shop opening in the summer, last week it was time to launch Christmas within the Foodhall, complete with a new signature brand range.
The foodhall is now festooned with signature yellow, green and gold decorations, foliage swags dripping with baubles and 8ft trees embellished with large crackers. Large pulled crackers spill out from the ceiling, over the signature tables which are plump with puddings, mince pies, panettone, florentines and gingerbread. I saw some of these product way back in July and the press show and completely fell in love with it.....Favourites include the jar of Gingerbread boys & girls, the giant Mr Selfridge gingerbread. The mince pies are amazing along with the florentines; flavours including chocolate orange and salted chocolate caramel and the golden mini Christmas puddings are decadent and delicious... I'm sure Mr Selfridge would have loved them all......check out some of the range here....
......lots of these will be falling in stockings and gift boxes this year...a little slice of yellow in world of green & gold.... gorgeously delicious... it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
