Eat, Drink and Be Merry!
e are fast approaching the most magical time of the year again… Christmas! After a rocky year, we all deserve a little indulgence and festive magic to lift our spirits. So this week our blog focuses on up and coming Christmas events our bespoke uniform clients are holding, to guarantee to finish 2020 with a little sparkle, and to get the spring back in our step for next year!
The Savoy invites you and your loved ones to celebrate the festive season in style. With world-renowned decorations and an unbeatable location looking over the River Thames and near Covent Garden, Somerset House, and Trafalgar Square, there could not be a better place to celebrate.
The Chefs at the Savoy have created mouth-watering menus full of festive treats to delight every appetite, with modern twists on loved classics showcasing the best of British. Afternoon tea takes on an extra layer of magic with delicate pastries and cakes promised to burst with Christmas flavours, as well as a selection of the finest teas picked by expert tea sommeliers, all served in the fairy-tale setting of the Thames Foyer.
There is no moment quite like walking into The Dorchester at Christmas. The lights are sparkling, the majestic trees are lining The Promenade, and a magical air of festivity hangs in the air…To capture the magic of Christmas, this year The Dorchester hopes to make their guests’ wishes come true. Visitors can watch as a flurry of twinkly snowflakes appear on the hotel façade, guests can post their wishlist to Father Christmas, as well as see their famous Christmas tree standing proudly in the lobby.
The Promenade will hold a festive afternoon tea, and executive chef Jean-Philippe Blondet presents a contemporary reinterpretation of festive cuisine in the world famous Alain Ducasse. On Christmas day, the restaurant will serve up a six-course menu, including wine pairings costing £360 per person, and on New Years Eve a seven-course menu, including wine pairing at £530 per person.
We were delighted to learn, that Chatsworth house would be opening their doors to the public for a warm and heartfelt celebration from 3 December. Christmas scenes will flow throughout the house with music from all ages, including festive favourites from the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire.
From a warm and inviting Christmas Eve scene in the State Bedchamber, complete with stockings hung by the fire, to a decadent festive table fit for kings and queens in the Great Dining Room, it will be a visit to truly remember. Perhaps most exciting of all, the State Rooms and Sketch Galleries, usually closed for conservation during the Christmas period, will be part of the route for the first (and likely only) time ever, and be beautifully dressed for the festive season.
