My presents are already wrapped and ready, says Tamara. I’m crazy – I started Christmas shopping in September. But this year it is even more special because Sophia understands more and knows all about Santa. We are going to be in Switzerland so it will be a real white Christmas. Both our parents will be there, separately, but we will all be in the same place.
The girls have fond memories of Christmas as children at the family home in Switzerland and are recreating that magic for their own children. Not least at the party, which had an ice show and a Snow Bunny Tea Corner. And for some festive glamour there was a pop-up of Tamara’s SHOW blow-drying salon and Loreta Jag Nails.
Petra was joined by friends including Meg Mathews, Holly Candy, Jasmine Guinness, Donna Air and Tamara Beckwith.
I am definitely getting into the spirit of Christmas – the tree is up, said Meg. We’re not going away this year as my daughter Anais has her mocks in January.
Jasmine, who attended with her 10-year-old son Otis and five-year-old daughter Ruby, wasn’t quite as organised. I’m not remotely prepared, she told My blog!. We are all going to Ireland and spending Christmas at Leixslip, where I grew up. There will be about 40 grown-ups – all the family and friends – so we will be doing Secret Santa for practicality.
The funds raised from Petra’s party will be used to produce a card listing the symptoms of meningitis along with advice and information.
There always seems to be so much bad news in the run-up to Christmas, says Petra. So it would be great if we can do something positive and people become more aware of what the charity does. And hopefully we can enjoy some | Christmas cheer as well.
