Last week we had the most amazing time at The Park Plaza in Cardiff and it felt incredibly christmassy.

If you are not familiar, Christmas in July is a popular press event happening in July to present and promote the latest trends for the upcoming Christmas season.

A tad early? Not really when you’re a journalist and need to plan your editorial calendar.

Set within the lavish rooms of the Park Plaza in Cardiff, Christmas in July was a great event fuelled by gorgeous canapés, way too many drinks and a general Christmas vibe.

Yes, Michael Bublé was singing. Yes, Santa’s elves were playing tricks.

And yes, presents were involved… courtesy of Santa of course.

Miss Squiggles was in heaven.

The Park Plaza  is a contemporary four star hotel with fab facilities including indoor pool, spa bath, steam room, gymnasium, 8 therapy room and a relaxation lounge offering a wide range of treatments powered by Elemis. Dinner is served at the award-winning Laguna Kitchen & Bar, previous winner of Restaurant of the Year in the South Wales Echo Food & Drink Awards.
