The festive season is officially upon us, with decorations going up and parties happening all around town. In celebration of the most wonderful time of year, The Strand Arcade is hosting an evening of Christmas-themed frivolity. All Things Bright and Beautiful will take place on Thursday, December 6 spanning the arcade's three floors.

On level one, grab a Belvedere vodka cocktail, featuring native hibiscus flower and lemon myrtle, then set off for a wander through the stores. As you shop, The Accent Strings string trio will serenade you with joyous Christmas tunes from the air bridge and a calligraphy station will provide complimentary Christmas card calligraphy for any purchases you make on the night. Plus, native floral posies will be given out to the first 100 guests. Holiday sweet treats will also be on offer, with Romolo Espresso e Cucina slinging lavish gold-flaked cannolis on the ground level.

As you peruse, be sure to look up at The Strand's suspended ornament display and its 27,500 twinkling Christmas lights, all drawing inspiration from the Australian landscape and highlighting the building's heritage. Highlights include three blossoming eucalyptus branches suspended from the ceiling and a four-metre-high gumnut pod sculpture on the ground floor — both of which will remain on display throughout the Christmas season.

All Things Bright and Beautiful will take place on Thursday, December 6 from 5–8pm. Get your shopping list ready by checking out the directory of shops on The Strand Arcade's website.
