A Christmas Tea Party


The fairy lights are up and winter’s first frost has arrived in London. What better way to welcome in the festive season than to throw a little Christmas tea party? Cue co-host extraordinaire, Lelanie Mulder.

The Sanderson hotel, with it’s every corner as ‘Instagram-able’ as the next, sets the scene for our festive, bloggers’ gathering. Our guests were treated to a Mad Hatter-themed tea, complete with bubbles, vintage book menus and music box sugar bowls. And the surprises didn’t stop there… Dazzling sparkles by Swarovski, fragrance by Marc Jacobs, and festive decorations from Brissi kick-started the season of gift-giving.

Our photographer, Alexandra (@ksana881), was once again there to capture the Christmas spirit.

Don’t be late! Join us down the rabbit hole…
