Your Matariki host and homeware guide


Your Matariki host and homeware guide

Not only is Matariki about the Maori New Year, it is also about coming together with your friends, whanau, and community to reflect, celebrate, and look forward to the year ahead!

If you're looking to host Matariki at your home, look no further! Westfield Riccarton has you covered for all of your host and homeware needs.

Rug up:

Matariki appears in our skies in the month of Pipiri (June - July), which can be quite chilly when you're heading outside. Cosy up in the luxurious blankets from Bed Bath N' Table or Kmart. These are sure to keep you warm while you search for Matariki and her six daughters in the night sky.

Create a feast:

What's a celebration without some delicious kai? And what better way to bring everyone together than a decadent grazing platter! Stevens has a wide range of servings boards to create the perfect Matariki spread. You can also visit Kmart for decorative serving bowls, plates and cutlery.

Bring everyone together:

Nothing brings a crowd together on a winters night like a game. Whether it be a board game, card game, or a puzzle Whitcoulls has the perfect range to keep all ages entertained.

Add sparkle to your night:

Bring Matariki and her six daughters into your home with light! Farmers have the perfect tealights to place around your home to create a warming environment. Or if you'd like to go for something you can use all year round, how about some fairy lights from Kmart. These can easily be sprinkled around the room to add festivity and light.
