GODIVA Chocolatier rings in the Festive cheer with GODIVA’s 2015 Winter Wonderland, “It’s More Than Just Chocolate” Christmas event was held recently with a lush Christmas garden,Christmas trees surrounding the venue, green grass spread amongst the garden and chocolate statues were proudly on display.
The event officially started with a spectacular and meaningful lighting ceremony. To kick off the ceremony, the guests each held a Christmas tree light in hand, each representing different elements of the evening - love, caring, sharing, kindness, art and childhood memories. The GODIVA gift box was lit up, as soon as the guests placed their trees on the box.
“It’s More Than Just Chocolate” was the theme for this year’s GODIVA Winter Wonderland. Conjuring the emotional side of chocolates, the theme this year was to ask the audience for searching for what chocolates meant to them. Giving and receiving, they are both emotionally rewarding.
Various elements of the meanings of chocolate were stationed including the Caring Station, whereas guests tailor-made hot cocoa tubes for someone they cared about; the Art booth is where a professional illustrator drew beautiful portraits of guests, filled with chocolate and Christmas elements; the Childhood Memories Station is an area where guests were overwhelmed the sweet memories where their mother made them their favourite treats as a child, GODIVA recreated this by having Chocolate.
Christmas canapés and winter warming hot cocoa were circulated, “It was lovely to see so many smiling faces this evening. Christmas is a time for friends and family to share gifts as well as spending time together. It was wonderful to see our guests to do just that, and spend a pleasant evening enjoying the holiday spirit.
GODIVA believes that everyone is always on the search for someone to love, and everyone deserves to be loved. GODIVA is more than just about chocolates, we want to share the love with the people around us,” Andy Farrow, Managing Director, Pacific Rim has expressed.
