a very bassike christmas with deborah sams

December 03, 2019

bassike co-founder deborah sams invites us into her avalon home with her husband toby and son jett, to share how she’ll be celebrating the festive season, her must-haves for entertaining, and how she’s giving consciously this year.

what are you most looking forward to this holiday season?

spending time with my family in sydney. days at the beach, swimming, and savouring all the amazing summer fruits and seafood we are so lucky to have in this country.

 

what is your favourite christmas tradition?

i absolutely love and embrace putting up the christmas tree and decorating throughout our home.

 

what is your most cherished holiday memory?

summers at the beach and spending christmas holidays in my local area of avalon.

 

what does christmas mean to you?

christmas is a time for family - spending time together, giving, and taking time out to appreciate all the simple things in life that you often take for granted throughout the busy year.

how will your family be celebrating this christmas?

this year, both sides of the family will be coming to our home to celebrate with a big christmas lunch, followed by swimming in the pool, lots of champagne and fun games.

 

what is your favourite dish to prepare for christmas lunch?

fresh prawns with mango salsa.

 

what are your must-haves for holiday event hosting?

ice cold french champagne, lots of fresh flowers like white hydrangeas and magnolias, good friends and family and of course, great music.

"

How will you be giving consciously and sustainably this year?

when i shop, i like to shop locally and support australian businesses and local retailers.

 

what is your approach to holiday dressing?

you’ll find me in top-to-toe bassike. i’m loving our summer linen pieces, and the check gauze gathered neck dress from the resort 20 collection.

 

how do you rejuvenate and refresh in the new year?

lots of down time. i tend to fully check out, spend time with nature, and keep it very simple. because i’m so busy travelling most of the year – new year’s is all about being at home and really switching off.
