Kildare Village was the setting for a truly Chic Summer Tea Party, hosted by internationally celebrated British model and muse Daisy Lowe to mark the launch of the Chic Summer Festival.
International guests, including many of Dublin’s elite were treated to the ultimate Summer Tea Party complete with floral-inspired cocktails, candy-coloured macaroons and mini cucumber sandwiches. Mismatched gilded frames with floral collages decorated the walls, while white picket fences and vintage china created the perfect garden party setting.
“I am so excited to be here to launch the Chic Summer Festival at Kildare Village. I have a love for both shopping and festivals, making Kildare Village the perfect stop for me to enjoy performances, food and entertainment this July.”
To capture the essence of Summer, Kildare Village is showcasing a unique floral couture catwalk curated by international award-winning florist Joe Massie and using the most beautiful flowers of the season. Regarded by many as the most talented florist of his generation, Joe boasts a host of international accolades and awards, and recently became the youngest floral designer to win Gold at the 2012 Chelsea Flower Show for the fourth consecutive year. His must-see floral catwalk is on display throughout the duration of the Festival. Throughout July, visitors to Kildare Village can continue to enjoy a series of festival themed experiences including: musical performances, a Heritage & Genealogy Trail as well as sampling Chic Summer-inspired eats in a unique pop-up boutique offering Irish artisan food.
