Christmas at Fortnum & Mason
Posted on 13 December 2016
As many of you will already know, I need no excuse to visit Fortnum & Mason. The luxury, heritage and Britishness of this store makes me feel like a child at Christmas every time I visit. Known for their impressive food and tea selections, I jumped at the chance to find out a little bit more from this iconic brand. Launching their Christmas collection of gifts, decorations and delicious festive foods, I had the pleasure of attending the press preview to discover exactly how Christmas should be done, the Fortnum & Mason way.
Famed for their diverse collection of teas, the only way to enjoy a proper cup of tea is in a classic Fortnum & Mason tea cup, served from a beautiful matching teapot. The new Fortnum's striped teapot is the perfect choice for someone looking to keep things simple with a distinctive brand marking. At the other end of the spectrum, if you are looking to impress with striking artistic designs such as the split double design above, there are most certainly designs to match anyone's style.
As a tea fanatic, I was immediately lured in by the beautiful tea set designs however, the press preview was the perfect time to make some new discoveries with the brand showcasing some of the other fantastic products, targeted for the kitchen and dining room. The collection of white marble chopping / serving boards caught my eye, a very handy addition to the kitchen or the dining table for those looking to get creative with their food serving and presentation. Other items on display that are perfect for Christmas day and beyond are the golden leaf napkin rings, glass pouring jars in different shapes and sizes and large decorative serving plates.
No Christmas is complete without festive treats and Fortnum & Mason most certainly knows how to tempt us with their delicious selection of foods, covering everything from biscuits, treats and cakes to Christmas dinner itself with all the trimmings.Whilst everything looked incredibly tempting, I had the opportunity to try out their stollen bites and I can honestly say, they did not disappoint!
