The two still share much in common - a commitment to celebrating the simple, a passion for fresh, an appreciation of local, a focus on quality and detail, the delight in mixing up textures, and the pure joy in exquisitely photographed product and place. And then there’s Donna’s aesthetic which is mirrored in so much of BBA’s signature design - a relaxed-meets luxe feel, linen and lots of it, muted colours such as khaki, denim, creams and navy.
It's always with great anticipation that we wait for Donna Hay Christmas to hit the shelves to see what new recipes she’s developed to create a twist on favourite traditional foods as well as the newbies she’s created to tantalise the taste buds throughout Christmas and beyond. Then there’s her special festive drinks. Colourful and scrummy blends of flavours combined to create beautiful drinks to toast the year that was and raise a glass to the new year ahead. So in celebration of the festive season and with New Year hot on our heels, here are our favourite Donna Hay cocktail recipes to mix up on this New Years Eve. And Donna’s secret to a classic table setting? Mixing soft linens with handmade pieces and timeless glassware is her secret. How positively BBA! Maybe next year you could be welcoming in the New Year raising your glass with your favourite people at one of the beautiful properties in the Byron Beach abodes luxury holiday accommodation portfolio. Now there’s a plan!
