Christmas Cheer!

On Saturday the 22nd of November from 1pm to 6pm Silly Bears will be hosting their Annual Mulled Wine Afternoon to celebrate the official start of their Christmas Festivities. The event will be held in their lavish 18th Century haven decorated with all their Christmas Edwardian finery which is always the most picturesque sight set in white twinkly lights and demure Christmas ornamentation. The traditionally furnished and tastefully decorated enclave is a truly magical spectacle and harks back to the Christmas pictures of Edwardian splendour which is the perfect pedestal for the chosen Winter Collections 2014 theme.
 
A collective of some of Silly Bears most prestigious names will be asked to create three to five teddy bears each which will be sold exclusively at the Annual Mulled Wine Afternoon as an additional incentive to pay the shop a personal look! As a special guest at the event Silly Bears would like to welcome, and for the first time introduce, one of their newest up-and-coming artists – Laurent Bergmann of Lovable Bears. Laurent will arrive from Luxemburg with an inaugural collection of his first five creations ever to be sold from within Silly Bears. As part of this collection a very special centre-piece is a Rabbit named Cole who is a an adorable character bunny with an inquisitively tilted head and sweetly pricked up ears who is adorned with a needle felted scarf finished with brass bells. This little character is the perfect centre-piece amidst a fine collective of four truly ‘lovable’ bears who have all been the centre of recent and avid attention following their showcasing in various international competitions.
 
Throughout the afternoon, guests will waited on by Silly Bears attentive staff who will help the day proceed as flawlessly as ever handling all your bear based needs and making sure the refreshments continually flow! Patrons will be served luxury homemade Christmas cookies and petit fours, which have been made by decorative cake designer Melanie Byrne of The Enchanting Merchant Company. These delights will be accompanied by a warm and toe-curling tipple of Julieann’s homemade mulled wine which is renowned for the extra splash of brandy that goes in right at the very end! To add to the grandness of the day, renowned friend of the shop and local born fiddling great, Paul Anderson, will be in attendance to greet all who cross the threshold with the sound of perfectly played notes resonating from his award winning catalogue of music. We invite all patrons to enjoy the music emanating from the dimly lit shop window whilst perusing at the bears, and not forgetting a little mulled wine hand warmer to help fend off the cold winter chill!
 
Silly Bears Mulled Wine Afternoon is truly a delightful way to add sparkle and spice to the start of the festive period. The room is always a muster with friends, families and Christmas finery to embellish the beautifully showcased bears which can do nothing more than bring delight to all at Christmas!
 
*Silly Bears events are always complimentary so please contact us if you wish to be added to the guest list to come join us in raising a glass in toast of the coming festive season!
