Marché de Noël in Poul-Fétan









The first weekend of December marks the beginning of Christmas for us, and I guess it does for a lot of people! We put the tree up and decorated the living room on Saturday and we made sure to prepare a festive lunch that consisted of a platter of cheese, homemade mulled cidre (based on the recipe from Jamie Oliver!) and apple stollen for dessert. Our tradition is to watch Elf (or Harry Potter) on the same day and we absolutely love it. It's bound to put us in a good mood, no matter what's going on in our life.

On Sunday, we went to Poul-Fétan's Christmas market to carry on with our festive weekend. Although we felt that there wasn't enough decorations around and that the Christmas spirit was a bit low, we enjoyed going back to this beautiful place (previous blog post here!) and we found loads of great crafty items and foodie products, all artisanal. Plus, the galettes and biscuits were delicious!








We found this tree made out of palette wood and we felt it would look perfect in our house! The lady that sold it to us had a cute stall with loads of products sculpted from palette wood and the prices were so reasonable that we couldn't resist. We also found some delicious chocolate products from Lady Merveilles for my parents but I didn't take a photo of these unfortunately. We did try some samples though, and thinking back, I think we should have bought a couple more for ourselves ;)

All in all, we had a nice time, but we're hoping to go to another Christmas market soon that will have more of a Christmassy atmosphere and maybe more stalls with a larger range of products. We'll keep searching!
