Team SLiNK generally keep clear of the Chelsea Flower Show (we have hayfever) but this sounds like the sort of celebrating of the Chelsea Flower Show that we can get on board with. Kicking-off next week, The Sanderson is announcing a new creative collaboration with cult London florists Grace & Thorn to offer inspirational Terrarium and Hand-Tie Bouquet workshops in the tranquil surroundings of the Terrace Room in the Garden Courtyard – we’ve done this sort of thing before and it is super fun!
The workshops include a glass of champagne (we are sold) and of course your flower arranging creations are free for you to take home – or take into the office and show off at your newly found skill set.
For those wanting to stay and enjoy the Japanese urban oasis, the only one of its kind in the area, Sanderson will be offering a floral-inspired Mad Hatter’s Tipsy Evening Tea. For an additional £58 per person, floral fans will be able to tuck into a flight of four cocktails including a rose and cucumber G&T, a pomegranate and basil G&T, a lychee martini and a juniper cosmo. Savoury bites include Wiltshire ham and smoked Applewood croque-monsieur, a Chelsea chili corn-bread flower box, and a caviar scotch egg. The iconic sweet treats have adapted a ’tipsy twist’, with a Red Velvet Vodka Ladybird, Banana and Rum bread-and-butterfly and Alice’s naughty infused ‘Drink-me’ potion and as we reviewed the Mad Hatter’s tea in a previous edition of SLiNK we can guarantee you that it takes you to new levels of deliciousness.
