John Paul and Eloise DeJoria Host Holiday Party At Malibu Estate

By Rob Giardinelli      Photography by Silvia Mautner Photography

THE SCENE:  A beautiful Sunday was the setting for an afternoon of delicious food, divine cocktails, friendly faces and incredible experiences…with the festive theme of Flannel & Frost. The Malibu estate of Austin-based philanthropist and entrepreneur John Paul and Eloise DeJoria was the perfect setting to host family, friends, celebrities and employees of John Paul DeJoria’s brands, Patrón Spirits and Paul Mitchell. It also honored The Giving Keys, an organization devoted to paying it forward through providing employment to those transitioning out of homelessness through creating jewelry with repurposed keys. The plaid-clad guests arrived in a cheerful spirit that grew ever merrier as the day progressed.

THE VIBE: The welcoming, inclusive vibe was evident from the moment guests entered the grounds as the gracious hosts rolled out the red carpet for their guests, personally greeting each of them and posing for pictures against a hand-painted winterscape backdrop and Cirque-esque holiday characters. After being wished well by the DeJorias, party-goers then entered a magical winter wonderland that brought out the kid at heart in each of the attendees.

The cuisine was a feast featuring an all-organic menu of delectable dishes, while others were able to sample cocktails from the entire brand of Patrón Spirits including Ultimat Vodka and Pyrat Rum. Anyone who felt like getting glammed up had the opportunity to go to the pop-up Paul Mitchell Salon for a makeover. The young and the young at heart were able to pose for pictures with Mr. and Mrs. Claus in the children’s Toyland area, and many of those who posed with them sported custom scarves they created onsite as a keepsake for such a special day. Nature lovers got to admire the many animals on display for guests to engage with including an alligator, an eagle and a porcupine. The thrill-seekers were able to sled down a hill with views of the Pacific Ocean courtesy of the two tons of snow trucked in so that everyone could feel just a touch of winter – even in Malibu. Those who wanted to see a spontaneous performance from an entertainment legend got to witness Dick Van Dyke not only sing a duet with his wife Arlene, but also spontaneously dance a jig to the Katy Perry song Roar.

In addition to Van Dyke, there were plenty of pop cultural bold-face names from all aspects of the entertainment industry including, to name a few: Clint Eastwood, Smokey Robinson, Matthew and Camilla McConaughey, Jane Seymour, Peter Fonda, David Foster, Camille Grammer, Harry Hamilin, Suzanne Somers, Ed Begley Jr., Fran Drescher, Nathan Fillion, and in one of the final appearances before he passed away, the late Alan Thicke, all of whom seamlessly blended in as part of an experience those on hand will not soon forget.
