As the days grow longer and warmer days entice, it's time to celebrate together, to chase the sun and feel the heat on our skin.
To welcome the festive season, we chatted to ELK Creative Director, Marnie Goding about how she is celebrating with family and friends.
How will you be celebrating this festive season?
We will all be at our family farm with loads of food, lots of laughing and maybe a little bit of daggy dancing at the end of the day.
What will you be celebrating this year?
It has been a bit of a tough year with a few health challenges for our family so it will be lovely to celebrate and enjoy precious time together.
What are your favourite ways to celebrate together with ELK HQ?
We are an office of bakers and the lead up to Christmas is a bit of an overload with incredible food that we all share is a total indulgence!
What are the party season and school holidays like at your house?
We have an open door policy so people are coming and going all the time. It is all about friends and spontaneous dinner parties.
What celebratory traditions do you love to share and continue with your family?
On the farm we go together to find a pine sapling. They are seriously always very ugly and spindly trees! All together we then adorn it with decorations we made as wouldn't win any awards for the most beautiful Christmas tree but it is great fun.

An intricate accessory offering a vibrant brilliance to any outfit. Crafted from seed beads shaped into a drop-style tassel, it has lovely colour options making it easy to gift someone their favourite colour combination.
This special and sparkly sneaker deserves to be ticked off a wishlist this season. The Medby Sneaker has proven to be a favourite in both colourways - glittery green with navy or platinum silver mixed with pink.
In honour of chasing the sun this season, a pair of Kittan Sunglasses is a great gift. The perfect combination of practicality and style, the exaggerated cat-eye design is crafted from high quality acetate and UV 400 tinted lenses, offering high protection from the sun.
The festive season calls for fun and sparkles making our Skara Ring the perfect piece. The oversized statement ring is crafted from hand-poured resin and glitter, offering a vibrant pop of colour and shine to any occasion.

A gift for the boys and the travellers! Handmade from vegetable tanned cow leather, the Mr ELK Olen Toiletry Bag has a vintage style and plenty of room for all their bathroom necessities.
