In the words of the great Johnny Mathis, “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas”, and we know the perfect way to get into the spirit!
If, like us, the festive season is the only thing that gets you through the other 11 treacherous months of the year, then let us be the bearer of amazing news when we tell you that it is only four weeks until Christmas. That’s right people, it’s now socially appropriate to set up the tree, string the lights and blast Mariah Carey on repeat.
If you’ve always envied the northern hemisphere and their picturesque white Christmases (damn you Europe) then this is your year because the amazing people at Westfield Garden City are bringing a little piece of the north down under with a stunning Christmas Tree forest popping up! Best. News. Ever.
You’ll be able to stroll through this wintery forest and be pleasantly overwhelmed with Christmas cheer. However, Westfield know that it wouldn’t be Christmas without a little magic and they’re making dreams come true because this will actually be a Wishmas Tree Forest. That’s right, the kiddies will be able to place a Christmas wish upon the branches and one lucky little elf will have their wish granted by Westfield.
As if this pop-up couldn’t get any better, there will be stacks of activities for the kinder and even something for the parents too including how-to's for stylish Christmas wreaths and festive table settings.
All of the Christmas joy will be going down on level 2 from November 25 and is the perfect way to kick off the happiest time of the year.
What: The Wishmas Tree Forest
Where: Westfield Garden City, Level 2
When: 25 November – 21 December, 10am-2pm daily and 5-7pm Thursdays
