Sneak Peek: Target Australia’s Christmas 2015 Preview
Yes, this is a Christmas-y post. In August. I know everyone freaks out when Christmas decorations start popping up in shops after the September school holidays, but fear not. This is just a sneaky-peek at what Target Australia has lined-up for Christmas and summer this year, and Lisa and I were so impressed we thought you had to have a first look, too.
Feast your eyes on their amazing outdoor collection for summer. Some of these pieces are in-store right now…
With highlights including a fantastic round watermelon beach towel, we can’t wait for summer to roll around and get our hands on this fringed beauty.
There is also a matching watermelon cushion, an awesome multi-purpose side-table that looks like a giant disposable plastic cup, a tropical-print sunlounger and an inflatable pineapple esky. Imagine that bobbing around the pool this summer. So much fun!
Lisa and I also loved their collection of gorgeous beach towels for summer – beautiful prints, vibrant colours, great quality – and at affordable Target prices.
OK, hold tight, but Christmas is coming…
You can see why we had to show you. The table settings were beautifully styled, and we loved the combination of pink, gold and stunning orchids. Keep an eye out for the white and gold plates, in a mix of star and festive patterns. You could easily mix and match a few pieces with your existing white dinnerware.
We also had our eyes on the awesome cookie cutters (pineapples! gems! icecreams!) and the faceted gem timber serving board set. Both great gifts and fun for entertaining in December.
Oh My Doughnut Bauble! In this table setting (above), bright and vibrant colours combine with playful ice-cream accessories (and the most adorable doughnut Christmas tree decoration).
Think you’re over pineapples? Think again. Can you spot the glorious pineapple Christmas tree decoration (above)? It really is a object of beauty, and like everything else in the summer collection, it was designed by the in-house team in Australia.
We loved the colour palette in this tropical-inspired setting. The plastic outdoor tableware is transformed by the smart peach and navy blue combo, and we can’t wait to get our hands on them come summer time.
And so concludes our sneaky peek of Target‘s Christmas and summer homewares collection. There are a lot of fab new pieces coming out, and it’s a good indication of the capabilities of the Australian design team to deliver on-trend pieces that look fantastic, and don’t cost a fortune. (Did I mention there are globe string lights coming out. True. Beeline.)
