We’ve grown up watching movies that show a cold, snowy Christmas spent in front of the fire or skating around on ice rinks, and why shouldn’t we get our fair share of the winter Christmas fun? We love our warm Aussie Christmases by the barbie, but living in the Land Down Under means we’re also lucky enough to get to celebrate two Christmases.
Christmas in July (or Yuletide)
is our answer to the wintry Christmas we’re deprived of here in the Southern Hemisphere, and it’s basically just another excuse to have a feast, have some fun, and drink some mulled wine. Bring a bit of cheer to your offices this winter by celebrating Christmas in July – here are our top picks for having a joyous and toasty Yulefest this winter season.
1. Host a Yulefest party
Just because it’s not December, that doesn’t mean you can’t decorate a room and fill it with Christmas cheer! Host your own Yulefest party, with Christmas trees, bonbons, a roaring fire, plenty of gifts, and of course – lots of food. Our venue, The Kitchen Hub, is in the centre of Surry Hills, where you can throw one heck of a festive feast before hitting the several small bars that line the suburb’s avenue. There’s plenty of space for delicious feasting, Christmas banter, and maybe even some dancing, too!
2. Hire a private chef to cook the ultimate feast
Fill your belly with warm, delicious meals without moving a muscle! Hiring a private chef to cook up a multi-course Christmas in July feast is the ultimate way to indulge this Yuletide. Bring a chef into your offices and transform the place into a winter wonderland, or invite the chef into your home for the ultimate relaxing winter’s feast by the fire. What’s on the menu? Whatever you like! At CHEFIN, we cook to cater to your needs, and we deliver an impeccable menu each time.
3. Winterlight, Parramatta
There might not be snow, but there will be ice! For just over 2 weeks in Parramatta Park, Winterlight festival is home to Sydney’s biggest outdoor ice skating rink. There’s also an ice slide and Ferris wheel for the necessary photo ops. Take the team out for some ice skating fun followed by a glass of mulled wine and dinner in one of Parramatta’s many restaurants for a fun and festive Christmas in July celebration. Winterlight runs in Prince Alfred Square, Parramatta from 6-22 July.
