Thanks for popping in.
Fortnum & Mason is such a well known shop in Picadilly, London. It's always a treat to visit the beautiful store but when some of their wares arrive at your home, all elegantly packaged, it is so exciting that I thought you might like to have a look.
Take this box of chocolates, for instance. Beautifully turquoise with gold picture and lettering . . .
. . . the box, once opened, reveals a delightful picture inside the lid, with the chocolates neatly enclosed within the waxed paper which is sealed with a bee sticker. The little booklet showing the selection,.
advises to keep them in a cool, dry, secret place to enjoy them at their best!
Sitting in little frilly cases, they do look very tempting in fact it says on the card -'Temptation has never been so tailored to your taste buds'.
A large tin of cookies, again looking resplendent in turquoise and gold were equally gorgeous. I think my favourite was the salted caramel but they were all exceptional.
Even the jars of jam had little messages on the inside of the lid saying the contents was the cream of the crop.
Another treat, this time from Lavolio, arrived in this pretty tin.
There's a glimpse of what's inside through the waxed paper.
Coated in the thinnest, crispiest sugar shell, inside are different nuts surrounded by chocolate, all hand made in Italy. Scrumptious!
Many thanks, you know who you are!
I know we are all trying to cut down on packaging but on a special occasion it really adds to the excitement.
P.S. for some equally exciting treats pop over to see Mrs Tiggywinkle on A Shropshire Patch.
