Ginger Mum Column: A Nordic winter wonderland

Local lifestyle blogger Ginger Mum talks about Elm Tree Farm and their Scandinavian Events to get you into the festive spirit.

Hi everyone!

I am not a winter girl in any shape or form but it’s sequin season so time to get excited! Have you booked your Christmas party yet?

No?? C’mon people it’s November – this is not a drill!

Scandinavia Events at Elm Tree Farm are bringing the sparkle back to Christmas in MK, for those of us who are looking for that bit more for our buck this festive season.

With their Nordic wonderland over 9 giant tipis, with a camper van photo booth, gin and fizz bar, street food and live request band. Can’t wait!

Heading into the long winter ahead, me and the kids will be hanging out at Gravity in MK because now that’s opened, Xscape surely has all the entertainment under one roof.

More than just another trampoline venue, their climbing walls are awesome and with D-I-Y slush bar, the kids will be in their element!

Winter passes for three months are a bargain buy, taking the kids after school or weekend mornings before the crowds descend is my brainwave to keep them happy, active and shattered for bed until the sun shines once again.

Congrats to The Dolls House MK who won the best hair salon at the MK Beauty Awards – not only a thoroughly Instagramable hair haven but an essential self care destination to boot.

If you pick up a copy of this month’s Red magazine, you will find yours truly doin’ it for the gingers once more, do let me know what you think!

My top gift tip for this Christmas is something practical but with a personal twist and these bespoke bags from Tillyana not only make amazing gift bags but are a gift all of their own.

I love mine and take it everywhere – find them and more at They do some sweet personalised cushions for kids too, my boys love theirs.

It’s LBD season again and the pick of the bunch has to be this Oasis floral cut laser dress from John Lewis in centre:mk which, at a very reasonable £55, will see you through most of the festive soirees to come.

Happy shopping folks and see you in December!
