It’s a crisp autumn evening, and amongst a bustling crowd, the Dovetail team can spy the white sprinkling of snow, a scattering of Christmas trees with beautiful baubles adorning the branches, and of course, delectable foodie delights. So what does this mean? Only one thing - the Harrods Winter Showcase is in full swing!
Monday 17th October saw the arrival of the Harrods Winter Showcase, the highly anticipated annual event held by Corporate Service at Harrods, which this year was hosted at the hip and trendy The Soho Hotel. Throughout the evening, guests are invited to experience and sample the wide-ranging Harrods Hampers on offer for the festive season, and we must say that this was an enchanting experience yet again.
The highlight of the evening, and set amongst the smart and stylish trunks and baskets, was the variety of tempting produce on display –all of which feature within the selection of hampers. These offerings successfully tantalised taste buds, with our ears constantly pricking up at the murmurings of ‘mmm’ and ‘aaah’ from the guests throughout the evening. And who could blame them, when they were able to indulge in treats such as divine caviar, melt-in-the-mouth macarons and creamy cheeses! Of course, alongside the fizz of champagne and the irresistible cocktails on offer, everyone was more than impressed (and spoiled) by so many enticing delights.
As if feasting on the delicious products and beverages wasn’t enjoyable enough, truly getting the guests into the festive spirit were the bewitching entertainers meandering the event. Dressed head to toe in white extravagant costumes, with one entertainer memorably wearing a beautiful and intricate deer mask, they truly captured a sensational winter atmosphere – and had guests queuing for a photo opportunity too!
After witnessing the smiles and laughs all round, and hearing the tremendously positive feedback, it’s fair to say that the Harrods Winter Showcase was an unforgettable experience for all. We’ve no doubt that many guests were inspired by the remarkable Harrods Hampers, and that receivers of the hampers around the world will be more than delighted with the arrival of their festive gift. Are you green with envy? Us too!
