Fairmont the Norfolk and Champagne house Moet & Chandon was pleased to host guests to a luxurious tea party dubbed “The Champagne High Tea”. The glamorous event rekindled the English Tea affair dating back to the early 1700s. An exercise that started as an apparent way to keep Anna the Duchess of Bedford from mild hunger pangs in between meals, later developed into a fashionable social event.
Following this tradition elegantly curated was the theme dressed attire “Fifty shades of champagne” brought. This event brought together key influencers and media personalities from across different digital platforms who met to an indulgent selection of savouries inclusive of signature cakes, finger sandwiches, macaroons and the property’s renowned strawberry complemented by a premium selection of teas and Moet & Chandon Champagne.
Fairmont The Norfolk considers itself the “home of high tea” in Nairobi. It is also a strong influence on all-time classic delights complemented with exquisite teas and offering the ultimate afternoon experience for both residents and travellers.
