Holiday Tastemakers

How Creative Consultant Bradley Agather Does the Holidays

The in-demand creative consultant on where to order catering, her go-to spot for a holiday outfit, and plenty more.

We asked Dallas tastemakers for their seasonal staples—those items that, for them, the holidays wouldn’t be complete without. Creative consultant Bradley Agather shares her favorites.

Favorite place to buy gifts: Highland Park Village—you can knock out all your turtle doves with one stone.

Favorite hostess gift: I like to bring something they can enjoy the morning after a big night. My go-to is a sleeve of Model Bakery’s English muffins. (Yes! They do indeed ship directly to the Big D!)

Best place to buy a holiday party outfit: Canary (Hot tip: stalk their Instagram stories if you want to snag your size)

Go-to holiday catering company: Art2 Catering

Go-to source for holiday tabletop and serving pieces: I’m all about a mix. My grandmother’s silver candlesticks look divine next to new favorites from Blue Print and the Ivy House.

Go-to holiday cocktail or spirit: A glass of champagne with one ice cube, s’il vous plaît!

Go-to bottle of wine for the holidays: Schramsberg Brut Rosé

Favorite holiday sweet treat: The “Santa’s Cookies” flavor from MELT Ice Creams

Favorite holiday scent: Diptyque Paris’ “Pine Tree” candle

Must-have decorative item: Handmade needlepoint stockings

Favorite holiday tradition: It’s a tradition for us to eat lunch at The Mansion on Christmas Eve. We have been doing that for as long as I can remember. I look forward to it all year.

Best place to see holiday lights: Beverly Drive
