THE most wonderful time of the year, Christmas, is just around the corner. To embrace the blissful season, The Temple House has prepared a series of sustainable seasonal celebrations in alignment with Swire Hotels’ sustainability vision.
The House is proud to present a seven-meter gold-coloured Christmas tree constructed partly from recycled bamboo.
Aside from the Christmas tree, The Temple House hosted a charity Christmas bazaar to spread the spirit of giving and sharing.
With sustainable festive decorations all over the House, this spectacular venue will surely become the hottest spot for celebrating the holiday season for Chengdu residents.
For the past four years, The Temple House has commissioned a one-of-a-kind tree that incorporates whimsical elements created from recycled materials.
This year, the unconventional Christmas tree features bamboo partly recycled from the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding decorated with hundreds of golden ornaments.
After the festive season, the bamboo will be reused to house the herb garden in our courtyard during the winter months.
The Christmas tree-lighting ceremony, an annual tradition, was held at the courtyard of The Temple House in the evening of 5 December.
Our guests, media friends and the community were invited to celebrate the tree-lighting ceremony and took part in the festivities with Christmas carols performed by the children of Soong Ching Ling Kindergarten, festive candies and a photo session with Santa Claus for guests to bring home a memorable Christmas moment.
In the spirit of giving, a charity Christmas bazaar was also held in the courtyard on the same day offering a wide range of festive items, including traditional Christmas mulled wine, panda cookies and cupcakes.
