“Transported Back in Time”; E2E Autumn High Tea Attendees Feedback
On March 23, 2017, we transported Canberrans back in time to March 23, 1773.
In an event inspired by the Queen of France, Marie Antoinette, the End2End Events Autumn High Tea was an afternoon of sheer extravagance, beauty and 18th Century luxury.
From the moment guests entered the marquee in the Sculpture Garden of the National Gallery of Australia, they remarked on the way the setting had been styled to transport them back in time.
“Transformational”, “Inspiring”, “Pure elegance”, “Magical” – were just some of the comments we received.
The placement of roses, candelabras and French vintage furniture came together beautifully to create a magical ambience with the French Paul Louis champagne and patisserie adding to the indulgent feel of the afternoon. Whilst the live Art painting by the lovely Nina Kosec brought that extra layer of interest and tied in beautifully with the event theme and location.
Guests loved taking photos with Marie Antoinette – The Model, who was dressed in 18th century French attire, with period hairstyling and makeup to match and a poise Only suitable to the Queen of France.
Highlights of The High Tea included the surprise fashion show of elaborate couture gowns by local Canberra Designer ‘Rockstars and Royalty’, and an insightful talk from Pat Murray from the National Gallery of Australia about Marie Antoinette’s incredible life.
The guests embraced the event theme and idea and brought their own beauty and elegance to the afternoon. They were not deterred by the rainy Canberra afternoon and enjoyed each other’s company amidst the beauty of The Sculpture Garden.
The Autumn High Tea Event was made possible thanks to some amazing collaborations and partnerships.
