London, 24th November 2022 – Holidays Are Coming! Coca‑Cola is teaming up with the much-loved mother-daughter duo behind podcast sensation Table Manners - Jessie and Lennie Ware - for a festive cooking, crafts and conversation celebration at the Coca‑Cola Christmas Corner.

Guests will be able to sign up to decorate gorgeous glass Christmas baubles with Hello Marilu who will transform everyone’s Christmas tree from just ordinary to festively fabulous, create personalised gingerbread creations with legendary baker Ruby Bhogal or My Lady Garden will take their stylish decorating skills from 0-100 as guests learn how to elevate their Christmas table spread with stunning tablescaping.
The experience offers a unique opportunity to get close to two of the nation’s most popular podcasters and kick-start their seasonal celebrations. Plus, it wouldn’t be a Coca‑Cola Christmas without a touch of magic, so guests should be prepared to fill their Santa sacks with a signed Christmas gift from the Table Manners pair when they leave.
Jessie & Lennie Ware of Table Manners, commented: “As lovers of food and parties, the festive period is our favourite time of year – obviously food plays a huge part in this, but mum especially loves to host and dress up the house. Any excuse to get people over for a feast & a dance. This year, we’re excited to partner with Coca‑Cola to launch their Coca‑Cola Christmas Corner where we’ll be hosting a whole day of Christmas hosting & activity sessions from decorating baubles to making gingerbread creations with a handful of gorgeous experts. Come along and join us.. we’ll see you there!”
Laura Moon, Senior Brand Manager, The Coca‑Cola Company, added: “Christmas is a time to celebrate special moments with friends and family, whether that’s gathered round the table over festive food or crafting a little gift for a loved one, and there is no two people who know this better than Jessie and Lennie Ware. This year we are so excited to team up with the iconic duo and bring the magic of Christmas to life at our Coca‑Cola Christmas Corner.”
