The Ideal Home Show- Events

Firstly I want to start this blog post with, if you ever get the opportunity to go ….. GO! 

It was such a great day out, so much to see and do, the kids even loved it too! 

– So before we get started I will quickly explain, there are two parts of this show, The Home Show section, and the Eat and Drink Festival section! So a bit of everything for everyone! 

My friend Aldo Zilli and his wife Nikki Zilli had a stand there ‘Zillicious Food’, and they really kindly invited my friend and I to go along, I brought Lily too as Nikki brought her daughter so it was a bit of fun for the kids. 

Seeing as we all live in the same village we all travelled up to the show together by car. 

When we arrived Nikki was working on the stand Zillicious Food selling her candles which you can find on Instagram @ CASAZILLI – they are so classy and so lovely! 

My friend and I took the girls around the show and had a good look around! 

I couldn’t believe how much there was to see! We went on a Saturday so it was pretty packed, if you are anything like me and hate over crowding I would recommend to go in the week! As it was VERY busy! I even saw a man asleep at one point, which really made me laugh! The man taking a nap whilst the women is off shopping! Lol! 

Our friend Aldo Zilli (who is a celebrity chef) had a couple of cooking demonstrations which we watched and Lily even took part at one point too! It was really interesting and I learnt a few things too!

We tried lots of food but the best was obviously my friends stand, good Italian food! Love it! 

After a long day at the home show we drove back home and Aldo really kindly cooked us some dinner – who can turn down dinner from a celebrity chef? I certainly can’t! 

The day was great and really fun – I totally needed it as I’ve been having a few ups and downs recently so it was TOTALLY what I needed!! Good food, good friends, good times!

Let me know if you’ve ever been or if you would go in the future!
