The Patesseria launch

We were so disappointed not to be able to make it to The Patesseria launch earlier in the year, but once we’d heard all the delicious details of the night, we just had to share it with you!

The Patesseria launchThe Patisseria was birthed out of the desire to create delicious patisserie and present them in the most beautiful and elegant way. It features a collection of French style patisserie with gorgeous florals and styling.  As the brainchild of Fen from MonAnnie and stylist Alex from Alexandra Rose weddings, the aim is to take you on a journey of your senses with a carefully selected balance of flavours, textures and ambience.

The Patesseria launchOn Thursday the 21stof February 2019, The Patisseria was formally launched at an elegant soiree in London.

The 5 star St Pancras Renaissance hotel steeped in history was the perfect host for the event. Re-born to become one of London’s most elegant venues, St Pancras Renaissance Hotel was originally designed to stimulate the kind of audacity, creativity and business brilliance that typified Victorian events and grand celebrations. Now it provides a stunning backdrop for intimate meetings or extravagant affairs.
