THE [VERY EARLY] SUMMER DINNER
In TP tradition, a group of clients, collaborators, press and editors joined Tessa in a hidden garden for her annual Summer Dinner.
The theme of this year’s party was English gardens, coinciding with the designer’s soon-to-be launched collection, Once Upon a Time in My Secret Garden, itself inspired by all things horticultural and botanic.
With spring perfectly in full bloom, and with (miraculously) not a drop of rain in sight, guests enjoyed berry cocktails and garden-themed canapes outside in the garden, before sitting down to a dinner of trout, duck and tart inside a glasshouse-like marquee. All details, from the name cards to the placemats, playfully expressed Tessa’s love for nature and the great outdoors as well as prepared the scene for was what to come from April’s jewellery launch.
