Party season has begun at M&S

M&S Christmas Food - Pikalily Food Blog

There’s just something so inviting about the food court at M&S and on a recent trip to their Sprucefield store we couldn’t resist from helping ourselves to lots of goodies.  As our wedding draws ever closer we decided to stock up on some party food so that we can feed any guests who decide to pop by on the run up to our big day.  With a 3 for 2 offer we certainly got value for money.  If you’re looking for some party food for the upcoming festive season then we’d strongly recommend checking out the range on offer at M&S.  They also have some Christmas party food combos available to order online.  To give you an idea of some of the food you can grab this Christmas at M&S, here’s a list of the food we got.  All of these can be frozen to allow you to get the whole Christmas period out of using them.  We’ve sampled a few of each of them ourselves and the rest are now stored away awaiting guests over the Christmas season.
