It’s #CrackingValue At Poundland This Christmas – A Festive Table For Feasting!

I am an absolute sucker for a bargain but… Only if it’s a ‘good one’ and by that I mean quality over everything. I see no point in buying something that looks the part but which will fall apart tomorrow so my thrifty shopping doesn’t happen every day. However… I am a massive fan of Poundland and this Christmas they really have pushed the boat out when it comes to money saving AND quality!

I have lost all snobbery when it comes to shopping in cut price supermarkets! I used to turn my nose up but now I see the products are often better quality and the money saving is immense so… Why wouldn’t it be the same at places like Poundland? It’s not!

I have been working on a #CrackingValue Christmas project with them and boy… I’ve found some amazing bargains. Along with a team of professional bloggers we’ve been tasked with showing you all what beauty you can get for you home decor this Christmas by spending one mere Great British Pound and I have to say… Task it was not!

My job was to create a table fit for a family of Kings on Christmas day and I am SO pleased with every little thing I bought I know they will become things I get out year after year! Take a look at my festive Chrimbo table!

I have broken down the prices of everything that came in packs individually like the crackers, batteries and chocolate Santas and the price of everything on this table, from the cushions to the centre piece, came to a budget busting £28! Now THAT is #Cracking value!

Although these are meant for gifts to pretty them up, I think they look rather lovely on the side of the plates don't you?!

My centre piece glitter red stag and the cushion behind him are both priced at £1 in Poundland!

Even the plates and bowls can be bought for a pound and they even do festive cuttlery sets!

I put chocolate santas in the glasses but Poundland also sell bags of choclate Christmas puddings and Brussels Sprouts which I think would look equally as delightful! Cheers!

Have to say, although I love everything, the Joy and Noel light up signs are my favourite! They take 2 x AAA batteries each but don't forget, you can get massive packs of batteries in Poundland for just £1! In fact, who doesn't need batteries on christmas day so make sure you stock up!

And while I was stocking up on batteries I also managed to bag myself all the wrapping paper I will need. I got in a muddle because they do 3 rolls for £1 and I thought they were that price each so I had to run back in and pick up something else to make up the money of my vouchers… I bought a couple of packs of fire wood which usually is quite pricey but you get a big pack in Poundland for £3… There’s nothing more lovely after the Christmas lunch than to sit in front of the T.V with the family and this year we will be doing it in front of our wood burning stove – how cosy is that!

Packs of fire wood from Poundland for £3!

And I couldn’t resist one more purchase… While most things cost £1 (of course), they do have lots of offers on higher priced items. One which astounded me was 110 Finish Dishwasher tablets for £8, I have NEVER seen them cheaper than that anywhere else but… We’re talking festive here so I didn’t make that purchase for this shop. Instead I bought a snowman shaped pass the parcel filled with goodies, jokes, family forfeits and fun. They say it’s an alternative to crackers but I thought we’d just have both, why not?! The pass the parcel snowman costs £4 and one little Jimmy was quite miffed that we didn’t get to play with it properly and have to wait for Christmas day… Look at his face!

Snowman pass the parcel - £4!

So… As you can see I got some amazing things and everything looks wonderful! I’m thrilled with my purchases (Aside from spending my vouchers I also spent a bit more and bought some fantastic stocking fillers which I can’t wait for the children to see! I’ll tell you more about those at our #CrackingValue Twitter party which is going to be this Friday at 12.30-2pm! Join us to talk about all the bargainous things on offer at Poundland and maybe bag yourself one of our fab prizes! We have 5 x £25 Poundland vouchers to give away during the party so make sure you’re there and in it to win it. Follow #CrackingValue and see you then!

  1. You did a superb job! I was surprised to see that you picked up firewood from there?! Who would have thought! I also popped back in to see if I could find that Snowman and I couldn’t find it 🙁 x

  2. I’ve read a few of the #CrackingValue posts now and this is definitely one of my favs. The photography is beautiful and your enthusiasm for what you’ve put together makes me want to get in store. I have an idea of what I’d like to do with all this table top stuff. It’s perfect for what I have in mind. My Poundland is usually tidy so I hope I find all of this. Love that it looks festive and classy yet not at all poncy. Very well done to their buyers and to you bloggers for making it all look so at home in situ xx

  3. Absolutely adorable! I love the look on Jimmy’s face is amazing, he looks thrilled with his snowman parcel x
