Kitsch Wrapping Paper from M&S

Marks & Spencers are my absolute favourite store. I love their food, wear their clothes (sure sign of middle age creeping in) & most Saturdays we have breakfast in their cafe.

They are celebrating their 125th year, & as I've blogged before, they are celebrating with beautiful retro branding of their grocery items.
They've got the vintage look so right, not a tacky reproduction of what they imagine retro to be, but genuine wonderful illustration.

I was delighted to see their Christmas gift range include a lot of the retro branded kitchen items, but disappointed my local medium sized store didn't have any wrapping paper or cards in that style.

Dandering around the store however, I found this colourful dolly mixture wrapping paper. It's photograph yumminess has become the Christmas wrapping paper for us this year.

I plan on Christmas being kitsch of course. To do this I'm going to dress the tree how we used to when I was a child. Mismatched ornaments, different kinds of fairy lights, and I think the paper will go wonderfully with the assault on the eyes!
