I joined the Strand Arcade for a very special Christmas event on Thursday 16 November. Whilst listening to jovial tunes played on the Level One air bridge, I enjoyed bespoke Belvedere Vodka cocktails; in theme with the Christmas decorations flavours made from Australian flora and include Lemon Myrtle and Native Hibiscus flower.
In an aesthetic ode to the beauty of the Australian landscape, The Strand is adorned in a specially commissioned installation of Christmas decorations inspired by native flowers. The beautiful oversize blossoming eucalyptus branches make their very first debut this festive season.
Suspended in the two main voids, the hero ornaments consist of three blossoming eucalyptus branches. These speculator sculptures celebrate the Strand Arcade’s steep Australian history, through utilising inspiration from native flora and fauna artfully blended with beautiful modernity.
