A Christmas Tea at The Dorchester and a welcome to Asprey

posted on: Wednesday, 28 November 2018

Well isn't The Dorchester all nicely dolled up for the holiday season?! The Christmas trees are out, the carousel ponies are in place and the guests are arriving for a very chic festive afternoon tea in the promenade. Now all we need is a sprinkling of snow and a hot chocolate in hand overlooking Park Lane and we have the perfect Dorchester moment. 

Last week I was invited into The Dorchester for a look at their afternoon tea, in full swing with Santa hat cakes and other festive favourites. The tea was held in a Dorchester Suite, in conjunction with the fine folks at Asprey, who are celebrating the opening of their new popup shop in the hotel. This spells trouble. I already have a weakness for both brands, but having them working together is surely just a disaster waiting to happen...for any bank balance. I took a look at both the tea, and the shop, for those looking to venture down to The Dorchester for a shop and sip. Yup, I'm officially trademarking this experience as such....
