AD/ Our Annual Festive Foodgasm in Staffordshire! 🎄
On 15th November 2022, Alex, Holly, and yours truly set off from Derby, heading straight for the lovely little village of Milford, right by Cannock Chase. Why? Our annual Christmas outing at Pretty Pots, of course! If you’ve been hanging out with us in the Midsmas Facebook group, you know we’re absolutely obsessed with this place. It was our third time going all-out with their Festive Afternoon Tea at this adorable pottery spot.
Catching Up with the Golden Girls 💬
The minute we rocked up, we got to hang out with the fab foursome: Lauren, Sophie, Chloe, and the ever-awesome “Janny.” They're the life and soul of Pretty Pots and always make our visits an absolute blast.
A Tea Party to Remember! ☕🍰
After a good natter, Sophie and Chloe dazzled us with a Christmas Afternoon Tea that's seriously Insta-worthy. Check out our snaps if you don’t believe me! Good thing we came hungry. Even then, we had to pack some yummies for later. And trust me, every bite is a taste explosion. I felt like I was channelling my inner Phil Rosenthal from "Somebody Feed Phil" on Netflix!
Derby Delights vs Stafford Surprises! 🥖🥧
Oh, and shoutout to the sausage roll! Being a Derby lad, Birds Bakery is my go-to. But today, The Wissage Bakehouse, a bit further out of Stafford, blew my mind. The pork pie? Just as epic.
Latte Level-Up: My New Fave! ☕✨
Also, pro tip: Get a latte with a dash of Triple Sec syrup. Game changer. Loved it so much, I went for round two!
Meeting the Amazing Chloe 🎨
It was fab to finally get to chat with Chloe. We’ve been fans of her cool designs at Inkski Prints since spotting them in Pretty Pots' "The Christmas Barn" last year. Little did we know, she's the genius behind it all! Dive into her festive goodies on Etsy.
Christmas Barn Magic & Cheers! 🌟🥂
The Christmas Barn? As magical as ever. Just peek at our pics! Alex wouldn’t leave without snagging a festive Jellycat toy!
Big love to Lauren, Sophie, Chloe, and Janny - you gals rock! Our day was filled with giggles, treats, and all things festive. Can't wait for our next Christmas tradition here. Until next time! 🎅🎉
