LIFESTYLE: Christmas, Bower Style
WE. LOVE. CHRISTMAS. THE INEVITABLE CHAOS IT BRINGS – THE DESPERATE ATTEMPTS TO FIT IN CATCH UPS THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN TIMETABLED EARLIER, THE PLANNING, THE PREPPING, THE LAST MINUTE CHORES AND THE MIDNIGHT WRAPPING AND CARD WRITING – IS ALWAYS WORTHWHILE WHEN IT FINALLY COMES TO SIT DOWN AND CELEBRATE CHRISTMAS TOGETHER.
For Taliah, Bower owner/creative, Danelle, our property manager extraordinaire, and Georgia, our marketing and communications creative, it’s all about family and friends, some time-honoured traditions, cooking up our favourite dishes, and hunting down special gifts for special people. That and how to set a stylish table and what to wear on the day.
And if you like The Bower aesthetic, we’ve given you some of our favourite places to shop for last minute presents that reflect our obsession with local fashion designers, bespoke home wares, artisan-crafted baskets and rugs, natural fabrics and gorgeous kids stuff. Come see how we do Christmas Bower style!
