Heavenly High Tea & Vintage Couture 2013

What a luxurious setting the Carrington Hotel Grand Dining Room provided on July 26, when 75 ladies of all ages came together to enjoy the Hotel’s scrumptious High Tea - a selection of sandwiches, jam and cream scones, savouries, macaroons, a glass of bubbly and a cuppa.

The afternoon celebrations were highlighted by a presentation of lavish vintage outfits modelled throughout the room and presented by Charlotte Smith, owner and curator of The Darnell Collection, in conversation with television presenter, Faye De Lanty, a self confessed fashion hound who searches the world for savvy and sustainable style. What a great excuse this inaugural ladies event was to dress up and have fun with friends.

There were lucky door prizes, fun games, a huge raffle and beautiful music provided by Drew Johnston of Dragonfly. Each person also received a take home pack thanks to Go Vita Springwood.
