The evening was a masterclass in elegance with the likes of Sabrina Percy, Amber Le Bon, Victoria Magrath, Lauren Lyle, Margaret Clunie, Nell Hudson, Natalie Salmon, Portia Freeman, The Collery Twins, Josie Fear and Sara Al Thani in attendance. Guests were met by Bvlgari’s handsome suited and booted guards to try on the sparkling Fiorever collection. Lashings of Ruinart champagne and delicious Belvedere cocktails were served alongside seasonal canapés in the exclusive Bvlgari Hotel London Suite. The sweet sound of Christmas songs filled the air, with a whimsical Christmas tree adorned by In-Water Flowers as the backdrop.
The evening didn’t stop there, after a series of selfies in the Bvlgari London Suite bathroom dripping in diamonds, guests were then taken down to enjoy a show-stopping dinner in the The Bvlgari Ballroom Foyer. The room was decorated by In-Water Flowers featuring a gold-cascading tree which filtered down the table against Maison Margaux tableware, Bable candles and menus illustrated by the talented Hatty Pedder and printed by Leeming Brothers. Incognito Artist’s Scarlett Lipidus played cool hip-hop Christmas beats to set the tone against a stunning Bubblegum Balloon backdrop, whilst artist Hatty Pedder sketched each guest while they dined.
The menu itself was curated by TWE’s lifestyle editor Alexandra Dudley, with Executive Chef Adriano Cavagnini and Pastry Chef Daniele Maresca. Guests dined on native lobster and langoustine, followed by salmon, grilled prawn and wasabi mash, finished with Brazilian maracuja and Piedmont hazelnut ball for pudding.
At the end of the evening guests took home an assortment of skincare by 111SKIN and a selection of Il Cioccolato, Bvlgari’s signature hand crafted chocolate gems from The Bvlgari Lounge (www.bulgarihotels.com).
