'A White Christmas In The Mountains'
It was Charles Dickens who said “I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.” The idea of holding on to the magic of the festive season throughout the year is certainly an ambition of many of us … though sometimes it isn’t all that easy!
Committed to making the task a magical reality – especially during the cold of July – is leading Blue Mountains business Rick Rutherford’s Country. Over the years, the Yulefest observations of Rick Rutherford’s Country, at its heritage parent gallery in Lawson, have become a celebrated feature of the Mountain’s winter calendar, the event’s launch alone drawing over 250 invited guests from all over the immediate region and interstate.
This year’s Yulefest is one of the largest ‘Christmas in July’ celebrations in Australia and runs from July 1st all the way through to Sunday July 29th.
The theme for 2012 is ‘A Winter White Christmas’ … with glistening white trees twinkling with fairy lights and glass baubles arrayed throughout the rooms. There’s also a selection of traditional green fir trees, all decked to the nines, plus the widest range of exclusive Christmas treasures on shelves in every room. There’s pretty Victorian and English style decorations, others Folksy and Retro. There’s Santas and nativities, figurines, snowmen and so much more. A wide selection of the wares have been exclusively imported for the event and, once gone, will never be seen again.
The 2012 Rick Rutherford’s Country Yulefest is the perfect school holiday destination, and entry is completely free. Venture along to the Lawson gallery and experience firsthand the magic of a winter Christmas … and take the opportunity to grab hold of some of the unique festive decorations and finery which will never be seen here again.
The RRC Leura concept store – in the Strand Arcade (just up from the famous Lolly Shop) is also decked out in festive finery for the season, and like the main Lawson gallery, is open seven days a week.
The Leura store is located at Shop 9, The Strand Arcade (close to the famous Lolly Shop), 178 The Mall, Leura.Ph: 4784 3799
Both stores are open seven days a week.
