One of my guilty pleasures is going around the different garden centres in my local area and looking at the displays of Christmas decorations. I thought I would do some posts on my personal favourites.
Pennells Garden Centre in Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire, is one and luckily only a few minutes in the car away from my home. Pennells, Cleethorpes
They really have pushed the boat, or should I say sleigh, out this year and have moved the display from the area of previous years and into the back section of the centre. It is very shiny and glittery, which I love. This year they also have the moveable singing reindeers which can not help but raise a smile in even the worse Grinches amongst us.
Now so far this year they had the most decorations that I myself would buy and I could not believe it when they have a whole section on leopard print sequin decorations!!! Yes!!!
Did you read one of my latest posts on being slightly obsessed with leopard print
I fell slightly in love with this large sequin, leopard but over £100 it was sadly out of my price range but oh how I love it!!
The decorations remind me very much of one of my favourite brands Biba They are very decadent and grown up. I think I love every single item in this range and did treat myself to a leopard print flower which will not be packed away after Christmas but used as a corsage and a hair accessory! Perfect for a drag queen or showgirl!
Silver seems to be a popular Christmas colour at Pennells but there was also a wide choice of other colours and the prices range from a couple of pounds to the unicorn that was £700!!
There is a big red chair all waiting for a special visitor but please check with the centre itself for opening times as they do vary from centre to centre.
There are plenty of gifts for all the family, cards, food items, garden items, although these do take a step back at this time of year.
There is a cafe and restaurant but make sure you give yourself plenty of time to visit as it does get very popular.
Well Pennells certainly gave me the Christmassy glow and I know if I feel the Grinch creeping up then just head down the road to Christmas land!
