Winter wonderland of Dreams

One of my favourite shops to go to is my local garden center. As weird as that may seem to most, you will only understand if you visit it. Not only do they have a huge Yankee Candle section, full of all of the latest scents and products, they put on the best Christmas displays I've ever seen. I must confess, I was a little shocked to see that they had transformed the store before Halloween is over, but I'm certainly not going to complain! 

As we pulled into the car park, I got an inkling that something had changed. This garden center inside a tiny village, which is completely out of the way for most people, was suddenly grid locked. It must have taken us a good 10 minutes to park. 

As we finally walked into the store, I was met by a huge snowman. At that point, my face must have been a picture. It had happened, the Christmas displays were released! I walked upstairs, totally walking past the Yankee stands without even a thought (very rare for me), I saw the most amazing Christmas display I've ever seen. 

If you're not a fan of Christmas, you may want to skip the rest of this post. If you're as obsessed about Christmas as I am, you love these photographs. Sorry about the quality, I was messing around with the camera when I really should have left it alone :)









I saved the best for last. How amazing is this Cinderella display? I wish I could live in that carriage!




There was no way I could leave without purchasing one of these for my Christmas tree this year. Ahh I'm so excited for December!

I didn't want to add the 72 photographs I took to this post, so instead I'm uploading a video to YouTube with the displays. I will add it here once it's processed :)
