Every year the Arnhem dream team come together to celebrate each other and share the incredible achievements and journey that we’ve been on together. We are blessed to be a team of 23 incredibly talented, driven and passionate women who are committed day in day out to doing the best by people and planet. And, our Christmas Soirée, even though it’s a little early this year, is always a highlight on the Arnhem calendar.
✨ TOP SECRET ✨
Our Christmas Soirée is always a surprise, and one thing is for sure: what’s coming is always better than what’s gone.
This year we were driven from our Byron Bay HQ deep into the hinterland to a magical location overlooking a deep valley of ancient rainforest and wild natural beauty. We started poolside with a champagne superfood breakfast to power us up for the amazing day ahead.
An Arnhem tradition, every member of the team were treated to goody bags containing incredible gifts from 10 amazing sustainable, eco-friendly brands: find out what was inside and shop the products below. We’re firm believers that experiencing generosity evokes feelings of inner abundance and the belief that we have enough to share – inspiring each of the team to continue sharing and giving daily on any level that they can.
💗 CREATIVE MINDS INSPIRE OTHERS 💗
Hearts and bellies full we were then welcomed into the studio of Byron Hinterland, Ceramic Artist - Sasa Scheiner. Connection met creativity as Sasa led us through the mindful practice of creating clay coil mugs. The most patient and tolerant of mentors, Sasa guided us step by step sharing wisdom and inspiration that flowed far beyond the clay. Exploring the medium of clay some of us definitely created mugs, while others of us got a little creative and ended up with vases, miso bowls and ring dishes – like they say, the magic only happens when your free to release it. We have so much love for Sasa.
🥂 TIME TO SAIL AWAY 🥂
Then onto the next mystery location: we set assail on the Pacific Ocean destined for hours of fine food, cocktails, laughter and dancing until the sun went down.
GRATEFUL FOR THE SMALL THINGS, BIG THINGS & EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN 🙏
This divine day was created by our beautiful girls Tash Tutton, Sarah Lamkin & Kayla Jewel
