WHERE: Shops at Arrive
Over 200 Houstonians popped by Shops at Arrive this weekend and were treated to a flurry of exciting holiday festivities. The shopping center glistened in lights, and debuted a show-stopping interactive, balloon-filled popup, cleverly dubbed #JingleBellPop. Lines of eager selfie-takers and families seeking a unique holiday photo entered the magical display where they were able to view the installations created by Festivities TX. The themes ranged from candy land to winter wonderland and a wall decked with balloon lettered lyrics from Jingle Bell Rock–all to create backdrops for the perfect snapshot. Joining the seasonal festivities were local vendors Golden strand Jewelry and Emilia Collection. To round-out the merry celebration, visitors enjoyed light bites from CRÚ Wine Bar and Pondicherias well as drinks, a hot chocolate bar, homemade fudge and a swag bag filled with goodies. The Mistletones Christmas carolers and a DJ provided festive music for the jolly crowd.
