Sutton Stracke Has the Most Angelic Christmas Tree (VIDEO)
The RHOBH boutique owner and her assistant, Avi Gabay, had a blast while making her home look festive for the holiday season.
If there are more celestial Christmas decorations than the ones in Sutton Stracke's home, we couldn't name 'em. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast member recently provided a peek at her house during the holidays, and it's glistening with angels, a golden glow, and Avi Gabay.
In a December 20 Instagram post, the boutique owner shared a video that shed light on her decorating process. Keep scrolling to see Sutton and her assistant Avi laughing, singing, and generally having a ball as they topped off Sutton's 2023 Christmas tree.
Sutton Stracke's 2023 Holiday Decor
In the Instagram video, Avi was kneeling on top of a chair, affixing an illuminated angel to the top of Sutton's tree. The flocked, fluffy tree was already embedded with white bulbs, and the angel's star-shaped lights added to its shine.
As they decorated the tree, Avi and Sutton took a moment to honor the occasion. "What's the prayer? Is there a prayer?" Avi asked. Sutton decided that they should sing instead, so a rousing round of tunes followed. Luckily, Sutton's daughter Porter was on hand to capture the holiday magic on film.
In the caption, Sutton wrote: "We wish all of you a Merry Christmas and certainly a Happy New Year! Love Sutton and [Avi.] Video cred to [Porter.]"
Who Is Avy Gabay?
Of course, Avi does far more for Sutton than angel installation. Bravo audiences were introduced to Sutton's assistant on the Season 13 premiere of RHOBH. Viewers got a first glimpse of Avi at Sutton’s store, where he was taking notes as his boss gave him a lengthy rundown of tasks to complete. “What’s going on today?” he asked Sutton.
“Review spring order [and] cashmere order,” Sutton told Avi. However, handling logistics at the upscale boutique wasn’t the only duty Avi took care of during his shift. He also catered an intimate lunch for Sutton and her longtime friend Jennifer Tilly.
Later in the episode, Sutton opened up about her assistant's official job desciptoin during her confessional, where Avi took it upon himself to reveal just how important he is to Suton.
“Avi is my assistant, but also house manager,” she said before Avi jokingly interjected: “Property Manager, Head of Operations, my everything.”
Jokes aside, Avi and Sutton have a clear bond. On September 20, Avi shared a heartfelt birthday tribute to the RHOBH cast member. Set to the tune of Christina Aguilera’s "These Are the Special Times," Avi’s video montage included several photos of him and Sutton from over the years. “Cheers to this beautiful lady who I sometimes call [boss],” he wrote as the caption.
He continued, “May we always make good memories together. Love you, always your [Ricky Ricardo].”
