We’re not sure how it hap­pened ei­ther, but the year-end party sea­son is im­mi­nent! Yes, that’s right. It’s time to take note about who has been naughty or nice, while adding a bit of sparkle to your wardrobe and em­brac­ing those dates in your cal­en­dar where you have noth­ing booked (tip: block out some dates now for the fam­ily to rest!). Love or loathe the fes­tive time of year, there’s no get­ting away from it. We have put a our own spin on Silly Sea­son in this edi­tion of haven, adding loads of gift-giv­ing ideas and party plan­ning tips to see you through this busy so­cial time. But it’s not all about Christ­mas – our ‘Cel­e­brate’ edi­tion has many of your dif­fer­ent types of cel­e­bra­tory events cov­ered. You’ll find a rain­bow of gift ideas in­side and our con­trib­u­tors also weigh in on the best ex­pe­ri­en­tial gifts and teacher thank you gifts. We’ve also got some fun tips on adding trop­i­cal flavour to any party this sea­son. I am buy­ing up bulk pineapples – you’ll see why on Page 16. I ac­tu­ally love this time of year. The weather warms right up and we start the count down to sum­mer hol­i­days. It sure can be busy with year-end recitals, school events, wind-up par­ties and sea­sonal soirees, so stay on track, en­joy the shows and let us help you get a han­dle on how we can help Santa with his shop­ping list this year. Speak­ing of par­ties, we can’t wait to wrap up the year with all you girls at our first an­nual Girls Day Out high tea! There are still two ta­bles left as I write this col­umn, so gather the girls or come along and meet some new faces! Talk to us!
