LUXURY HOTEL: Christmas at The Savoy

ICE AND DIAMONDS are the inspiration for the decorations at The Savoy this Christmas. Yesterday the Fairmont Managed Hotel, was transformed into a frozen fantasia. Hotel guests went to bed on Saturday night and woke up to a magical Boodle-inspired Christmas on Sunday 20 November. The centre piece was a magnificent 4.5 metre Christmas tree sparkling like Boodles diamond jewellery and, for the first time in Savoy history, an indoor Ice Rink and Louis Roederer Champagne gazebo cascading with festive baubles

The Savoy has always celebrated Christmas in fine style and has partnered with Boodles before and this year’s showcase featuring serious sparkle and Boodles’ signature pink is spectacular. Add to this the possibility of Louis Roederer champagne and it’s just about perfect.  The flower fairies at Savoy Flowers, the hotel’s floral design team, worked tirelessly throughout the night to transform the entire hotel into an ice and diamond wonderland.

The Nordmanniana tree is adorned with bespoke decorations inspired by some of Boodles most iconic designs, as well as mirrored deco squares and rectangles all glittering alongside blushing pink touches.

Louis Roederer, a family-owned Champagne house since 1776, is The Savoy’s preferred champagne, and has collaborated with the hotel to create the Ice Rink installation in the Thames Foyer. To bring the idea to life, The Savoy commissioned London-based creative production agency, We Are Family, who took inspiration from a child’s jewellery box featuring a spinning dancer. Designed and made for The Savoy by renowned sculptor Gareth Knowles, a life-size ice skater will pirouette on an ice-like surface under the champagne bauble adorned gazebo, and twirl her way continuously through Christmas and New Year.

A Champagne Festive Afternoon Tea will feature Boodles inspired patisserie and Louis Roederer Vintage Rose cuvée and available from Sunday 20 November 2016 until Friday 6 January, 2017.
