THE ROYAL WEDDING AFTERNOON TEA AT THE SIR FRANCIS DRAKE HOTEL
We are very excited to let everyone know that we are partnering with The Greenlight Clinic here in San Francisco and the proceeds from our tombola will benefit this amazing mental health clinic for 14 to 26 year olds based in the Presidio. Click on the logo to find more about this amazing organization.
We have some amazing British and not so British companies who will also join us on the big day! We will have some pop-up shops and amazing contributions to the tombola! Also our handmade centre pieces will be available to purchase via a mini silent auction too. Wait till you see them! All unique and created by a little trio of wacky wedding fairies!
Everyday, intriguing delights are arriving from the UK and we are creating all sorts of fun things to do, have and take part in while you are at the Royal Wedding! We have also procured, Mr. Tom Wolfe, the only American who is trained as a British Toastmaster, who will be our official announcer. We are thrilled he will be making sure all is done properly in the oh-so royal way!
Please join us for a Royal Wedding extravaganza to celebrate the nuptials of HRH Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle. The last one for a long while! We are creating an event that will take you to a wedding reception that will be way more fun than the last wedding you attended because nothing too embarrassing can happen since none of us really know the Bride & Groom! But what we do know is how to have proper British Tea Party and a jolly good time!
There will be three seatings: 10.00am, 12.30pm, and 3.00pm.
At each seating we will be showing highlights from the wedding (pre-recorded from early that morning) We will serve a traditional Afternoon Tea service with an exclusive wedding tea from Fortunm & Mason’s (18th century grocery store in London, Amy’s all time favourite!) as well as a specially created champagne cocktail, “The Markle Sparkle”. There will also be a no host bar available.
We have a variety of fun surprises planned some of which include a traditional British Tombola (a raffle in US speak) with amazing prizes, a variety of photo booths, a take & make, some silly party games and other delights.
Each guest will receive a fab party swag bag filled with goodies to help enhance your memories of the day. The event cost is $125.00 per person. The price INCLUDES Tax & Gratuity and tickets can only be purchased on Eventbrite!
