With the much anticipated royal wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton fast approaching, the St. Laurent Centre has put together a fabulous fashionable fundraiser for the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. On April 21, 2011 from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. guests of the Royal ParTea will be treated to high tea services provided by Thyme & Again, Angle’s Gate sparkling wine and delicious treats. The Governor General Foot Guard will be present adding to the elegance of the fourth floor gallery in the Museum of Nature. In addition to the beautiful setting and delicious treats, guests will be entertained with a walk-about fashion show showcasing the latest spring fashion from the St. Laurent Centre, inspired by Catherine Middleton.
Present at the Royal ParTea to speak about the royal wedding is Jeanne Beker, a fashion icon in Canada and worldwide. For me, I know Jeanne as one of the judges on “Canada’s Next Top Model”. But Jeanne is best known for being the star and segment producer of the internationally syndicated “Fashion Television“. She is an expert when it comes to fashion, as she has been traveling the world to attended countless of fashion shows and interview top designers. Jeanne will be sharing the inside scoop on the much anticipated wedding before heading off to London for the real thing happening on April 29th, 2011 at Westminster Abbey.
Recently I’ve added her to Twitter and love all of her fashionista updates.
Dressing up for an elegant tea party with Jeanne Beker sounds like an amazing way to spend a spring afternoon. The gift bags for guest puts this event over the top. Each guest will receive a gift bag filled with: full size Dior, Channel, Pandora, Smashbox, Crabtree & Evelyn, Pretty Fours and more…. The value of these gift bags supersedes that of the ticket.
The best part of this event, is that proceeds from each ticket will go directly to the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation.
