Christmas is around the corner and presenting connoisseurs an opportunity to soak up the festivities in style is Hotel Café Royal with its exclusive pop-ups and celebratory experiences. In bringing in the occasion with fervor, the hospitality brand has partnered with Diptyque Paris to host a giant advent calendar and pop-up shop, a Christmas tree adorned with bespoke Diptyque ornaments, an afternoon high-tea as well as wreath making and table decoration workshops.
As part of the glittering collaboration, the hotel’s Christmas tree will be adorned with lucky charms from around the world, designed by German-based illustrator and author – Olaf Hajek. Guests will also be able to gaze at the Diptyque advent calendar in the hotel’s historical lobby, which will reach up to the first floor in height and feature intricate design and gilding, matching the brand’s infamous sell-out advents calendars.
Those wanting a more immersive experience, can partake in the Diptyque wreath making workshops at the Ziggy’s bar. The sessions will be led by the hotel’s in-house florist – Jamie Aston and will teach guests how to make their own wreath and personalize them with scented Diptyque ovals. Later in the month, the hotel will also offer table decoration workshops wherein guests can perfect how to make their own Christmas centerpiece with exclusive Diptyque embellishments. As a finale, visitors can enjoy the luxe Diptyque Afternoon Tea experience at the hotel’s Oscar Wilde Lounge to sign-off the grand Christmas Celebrations. Let the festivities kick-in, shall we?
