Our fabulous ShopUp recap — West London, 2018

We are still buzzing from our fantastic 2018 Holiday ShopUp last Sunday and Monday in Chelsea.  Such great shops, fun customers, and a festive day out for the whole family!

As usual, our whole London team got involved in the festivities — Lara did a pomander-making workshop, Esther signed her 9 Months book, even Rebecca’s daughters helped with Santa and did face painting. It was such fun, and put us all in the holiday spirit!  Thanks to all of our ShopUp elves who made the magic happen!

Paperbirds was on hand again in the cafe making gorgeous arts and crafts with the kids on Sunday, and Lots of Lovely Art continued the creativity by taking over on Monday.  Lots of Lovely Art also had an amazing booth, showing off their great new subscription art boxes, which look like so much fun!  Each box contains three artist-based projects, four process-art ideas and a selection of quality materials. The right tools to enable children to be independently creative at home.

Maud Fontein joined us again this year to take sweet holiday portraits of the kiddos.  And Santa was happy to give a big “Ho Ho Ho” to all the cuties that came to visit! 

Eatfirst took over the cafe at Chelsea Old Town Hall, and we stuffed ourselves with their delicious, healthy sandwiches, salads, and those double chocolate cookies…yum!  Their gourmet, fresh meals can be delivered straight to you at home as well.

And look at those lovely decorations from Meri Meri! The lovely decor  added a festive touch to our Cafe and Santa Grotto. Such fun! Thank you!

And a special thanks to Nadine Brandt who took all of the lovely photos in this post.  (PS- Nadine also does family portraits, so check her out if you need to update your family photo!)

Hope you got to join us and a very happy holiday season to you and yours!
