The Temple House launching Festive Seasonal Celebrations


(Chengdu, 30 Nov 2017) In alignment with Swire Hotels’ vision, The Temple House has prepared a series of seasonal celebrations and festive decorations, with sustainability theme. This year, The Festive House presents a White Christmas with whimsical and magical elements. Natural and reusable materials are mostly used as festive decorations. The Christmas tree located in the courtyard of The Temple House, is composed by 7000 recycled aluminum shells of used tea-light candles, collected from Daci Temple. And the metal structure of the Christmas Tree is reused this year, and for many more years to come. Christmas Bazaar was hosted in the afternoon of the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony, and all the proceeds are to support local non-profit projects. Local artists were commissioned to create murals on wall panels, as a creative way to introducing seven Swire Hotels to the audiences. Going forward, The Temple House will keep celebrating festive seasons with “sustainability” and “community” in mind.
