December always heralds the season of merriment, mulled-wine and meaningful reunions with our loved ones. To make the occasion even more special, our hotels across Europe are partnering with leading artisans to bring you an array of parties, gift ideas, festive tipples and afternoon teas all set to the backdrop of dazzling displays. Read on for a snapshot of the exciting celebrations you and your loved ones can look forward to this season.
Asprey + Brown’s Hotel
With a milestone 185th anniversary just around the corner, Brown’s is celebrating in a truly fashionable style with another Mayfair legend, Asprey London. This landmark partnership between two greats promises an array of sparkling experiences.
Asprey London, the iconic British luxury brand and jewellers to the royal family, has transformed Brown's into a glittering sanctuary of colour. Hints of Asprey purple and silver culminate in the dazzling centrepiece of an Asprey-decorated Christmas Tree. We also encourage you to try our exclusive 'Purple Water' cocktail inspired by Asprey’s signature fragrance, infused with gin and Drambuie alongside warming notes of cacao, honey, butterfly pea flower syrup and double cream.
Book our Asprey-inspired Celebratory Afternoon Tea complete with a roaring fire, a backdrop of Christmas carols from the hotel’s resident pianist and, of course, the sweet and savoury festive treats that Brown’s is renowned for. On the 5th December you can compliment your Afternoon Tea with a wreath-making masterclass with the hotel’s in-house florist, Ellie Hartley. A special Champagne Afternoon Tea will be served on 25th, 26th, 31st December and 1st January.
Maison Serneels + Hotel Amigo
We’re delighted to partner with renowned toy makers, Maison Serneels, to celebrate a Christmas that honours the dreamy innocence of childhood and a return to tradition.
The renowned Belgian toy maker, Edmond Serneels, founded his family business in 1959, and the company’s values have remained unchanged. Every toy is unique and is made with natural materials, to encourage curiosity and the creation of childhood memories.
To ensure that this holiday season is filled with hope and generosity, Hotel Amigo is once again supporting Make A Wish, a foundation that works to grant wishes of sick children. On 26th November 2021, the hotel is organising a special afternoon tea party with five children from the foundation. This quality time with the family means a lot to Maison Serneels.
Outside the hotel, a photo booth will be strategically placed to catch passers-by and guests as they strike their favourite festive pose, perfect for the Instagrammers looking for a fun festive photo.
Salvatore Ferragamo + Hotel de Rome, Villa Kennedy & The Charles Hotel
Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich
Each of our hotels in Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich will host a star-studded crowd of celebrities to mark a special lighting of our Christmas trees, festooned in decorations. Guests staying at each of our hotels will enjoy a little Ferragamo present at turn down, as well as special gift vouchers for you to enjoy during your stay.
