Dreaming of a White Christmas

On Thursday, December 10th at 8:00pm, the sun had set over Hong Kong’s newly restored historic landmark 1881 Heritage, but the evening was far from coming to a close. The stars were out, the moon was bright, there was a chill in the air, and the stunning old-world glamour filledHullett House boutique hotel was radiantly lit and set for a party…

Up the grand staircases came over 450-trendsetting holiday revellers, ready to kick off the festive season with an enchanting soiree to remember at Dim Sum & Then Some’s White Christmas Party.

To set the scene, the hotel’s glamorous Parlour and Dragon Bar were adorned with white balloons, snow sprinkled floral displays, and shimmering white candles, casting a festive holiday glow. Guests were decked out in winter white and glittering glamour, from sequins and tiaras to tuxedos and furs, and ready to party the night away in style. Attendees sipped on white winter drinks and the bar’s signature Dragon’s Back cocktails and feasted on hearty canapés while renowned DJ Doze, resident DJ at M1NT, filled the venue with smooth grooves and ambient sounds.

Especially for this event, a few of Hong Kong’s leading niche luxury brands gave away prizes we all wished we would find under our trees on Christmas morning. VIPbox Unique Gift Experiences gave a THRILL Adventure Box, which will have one lucky guest’s heart pumping over the holidays with thrill-seeking activities like paintball, surfing, kayaking, and go-karting, as well as a DISCOVER Tune In Box to help another attendee bring out their inner rock star with singing lessons or a jam session in a state-of-the-art recording studio.

To ensure we were all styled to perfection for the upcoming party season, Mischa Designs sponsored a gorgeous silver clutch bag made from the line’s signature vintage Japanese obi. And CARAT* gave away a pair of glitzy and brilliant CARAT* 3 Times Round earrings, giving winter ice a new meaning for one lucky partygoer! For the ultimate escape right in Hong Kong, one winner will have the chance to return to Hullett House for a dream overnight stay for two in the property’s all-white and truly breathtaking Silvermine Suite.

A charming historic location, a gorgeous crowd outfitted in shimmering old-world glamour, and a plethora of delectable cocktails to toast the start of the season, all in the heart of TST. . . Were we dreaming? Only of a White Christmas!
