The Absa Champagne Festival is one of the events that the entire events team always really looks forward to. This is the event where all your favourite things come together to create the perfect event; glamorous décor, stylish guests, impeccable cuisine and a lot of French Champagne. The recipe for the event of the year…
This year heralded the 16th annual Absa Champagne Festival, the second to be held at The Polo Room with a large glass marquee erected outside, to create a night under the stars.
Guests arrived to a black carpet welcome, where all the event essentials were given, most importantly, your first glass of French champagne. Thereafter, guests were free to roam the venue space – sampling the finest champagne, nibbling on fantastic cuisine and mingling with like-minded champagne lovers and fanatics.
The main room, the tasting area, housed over 30 of France’s best champagne houses - offering their little piece of heaven to each guest. Both the inside and outside area was styled with bespoke furniture pieces in order to bring the Parisian Courtyard theme to life. Seasonal flowers and plants were used to amplify the surroundings, while scented candles added an additional play on the senses.
