The North Star at ARIA

General Information

Inspired by ARIA’s central Strip location, the installation was aptly named “The North Star,” guiding guests to the resort to be immersed in the starry scenery and breathtaking designs. This year’s installation was designed by local-based artist and wedding planner Andrea Eppolito in collaboration with the ARIA Pastry Team and MGM Resorts Event Productions. Seasonal cocktails will be offered in the Lobby Bar for the duration of this installation.


The North Star: “I see ARIA as the North Star of Las Vegas Boulevard, grounding and guiding both locals and guests to a place where they can be dazzled and delighted not just during the holidays, but always,” states Andrea Eppolito. As such, the central star will be surrounded by crystal shards one could imagine shooting through the sky. The patisserie designed custom confections including beloved holiday symbols, such as sugar ornaments, wrapped presents, and time-honored treasures such as dolls and bears crafted out of chocolate and fondant. Above our heads, the starry night comes to life with a series of swaying lights and celestial starbursts. The finishing touches on our winter wonderland comes from the horticulture department and include flocked evergreens, soft dusty miller plants, and white florals throughout. The design itself is timely and timeless, but your ability to encounter and interact with it is limited to just a magical seven weeks during the holiday season. This is a “never before, never again” opportunity for locals and visitors to be delighted and inspired by the magic of the season.”
