Enjoy Afternoon Tea with Links of London

Links of London recently introduced new charms to add to their stunning Afternoon Tea Collection! The charm additions include the adorable daisy, strawberry, cupcake, and sugar cube (which is made of solid-sterling silver, sprinkled with a generous helping of 216 sparkling pave diamonds)! To create the perfect Royal tea-inspired Sweetie Made-To-Order Bracelet, mix these in with the collection’s miniature British biscuit charm, and traditional teapot, cup and saucer charm!

To celebrate the new charms for their Afternoon Tea Collection, Links of London hosted guests for Afternoon Tea at the Windsor Arms Hotel in Bloor-Yorkville!

Tea Etiquette Expert, Lisa Orr, taught guests the differences between afternoon tea and high tea, and how the Royals enjoy theirs! (The Queen loves Earl Grey with a side of Chocolate biscuit cake).

Along with finger sandwiches and pastries, the afternoon featured a candy bar where guests could fill up their Links of London gift bags with their favourite British sweets.

Of course, the afternoon wasn’t complete without a Pop-up Made-To-Order Bracelet Bar! Each guest was complimented with a Links of London iconic Sweetie Made-To-Order Bracelet that they could customize with Afternoon Tea Charms of their choice! They also had the option to add an engraved Disc Charm and were given the chance to swap sterling silver rings with rose gold vermeil, yellow gold vermeil or rhodium rings for a bi-metal look.

Tea for two? How about tea for all of Canada!

DAVIDsTEA spread some holiday cheer with their first nationwide DavidsTeaParty! For one hour, tea lovers could visit any Canadian DAVIDsTEA store for a free cup of tea. The event supported Me To We, with $1 donated for every cup of tea served.

DAVIDsTEA also held a special live stream pop up Downtown Toronto, hosted by ETalk reporter Liz Trinnear! The event was broadcasted live on the DAVIDsTEA Facebook page for fans across Canada, drawing 16,000 views.

Guests enjoyed their cozy drinks while listening to a beautiful performance by French Canadian, Jonathan Roy! The DAVIDsTEA pop up also offered guests a Rafiki workshop, where they could bead their own bracelets.

The pop up offered a variety of delicious DAVIDsTEA blends, including Santa’s Secret, Caramel Shortbread, Matcha Matsu and, of course, the signature, Me To We.

We saw a lot of guests stop by throughout the afternoon, but no one left without capturing a memory with the digital photo booth!

DAVIDsTEA Party was a great success as people across Canada came together to enjoy good tea for a charitable cause! Iconic DAVIDsTEA cups could be seen dispersing around the city after the pop up closed up shop. It was a great experience to see Canada coming together! 🙂
