Christmas time, my favourite season of the year. Cadbury's, my favourite multinational confectionery brand. Can you already imagine the look on my face when I received an invite titled "A Cadbury Christmas"?! 



Now that we've figured that I'm actually in a happy place - I mean, obvious - let me tell you what we got up to at the beautiful Riva TownHouse in Sandton. Geez, I'm so excited, I don't even know where to begin. Let me grab a young Flake and let the juices flow. 



Monday, 03 Dec 2018

While Cadbury prides itself in the quality of its products and impeccable image, I appreciate brands that are able to try new things - to not only keep us on our toes but to make each season special. You're probably thinking, what on earth did that Flake contain that I just ate, right? Well let me bring you up to speed. Cadbury introduced four festive baubles that will not only enhance your Christmas tree, but they each come with a different Cadbury Dairy Milk treat and a story behind them. It's literally a ball that can open in half and has chocolates inside! I'm screaming with joy! 



We were put in various teams and were tasked with setting up a table and decorating a Christmas tree. Let me tell you - there's a whole system that goes behind everything. So be sure that this time around - as in this year, we're not just stacking the table and Christmas tree to what we think is right but we are doing it the right way.

How to decorate your Christmas tree like a bawse:

  1. Lights - place them in an up and down routine and not round and round 
  2. Garlands like your tinsel & ribbon - over and tuck to create dimensions
  3. Then add your big ornaments 
  4. Add your sticks and tree topper 
  5. Then fill in the gaps with your smaller ornaments - and voila! Magic!



Here are the steps on setting up a table in a true legend style:

  • Decide if you want a table cloth or you want a naked table 
  • Choose place mats 
  • Choose cutlery and crockery 
  • Depending on length of table, do a centre piece 
  • Just have fun



Not only did we have an eventful afternoon, but we were also given Christmas gifts by Santa. Our pressies included a Half-Built Snowman storybook, 2 x baubles (Jess the Polar Bear and Paul the Reindeer), Festive Whispers slab, Whispers Snowballs and a beautiful Le Creuset mug. I'm in Heaven and shall remain there. 






The ultimate Christmas tree decoration
