This Christmas, The Savoy, a Fairmont Managed Hotel, will be transformed into a frozen fantasia, featuring a magnificent 15ft Boodles-inspired Christmas tree and, for the first time in Savoy history, an indoor Ice Rink and cascading Louis Roederer Champagne bauble installation.
Celebrated for its annual creative festivities, The Savoy's spectacular showcase will feature sparkling Ice and Diamond inspired decorations, with Boodles' signature pink and Louis Roederer champagne festive offerings. Savoy Flowers, The Savoy's floral design team, will work tirelessly throughout the night on 19 November to transform the entire hotel. Hotel guests retiring to bed at The Savoy that Saturday night will wake up to a magical Christmas surprise on Sunday 20 November.
The Boodles Christmas tree for The Savoy, a magnificent 15ft high Nordmanniana tree will be adorned with elegant, bespoke decorations inspired by some of Boodles most iconic designs, created using cut mirror, which will hang alongside mirrored deco squares and rectangles. Perfect decorations in 'Boodles pink' tones, sit alongside ombre and mirrored details in line with the Ice and Diamond theme that has been selected for this stunning tree.
Louis Roederer, a family-owned Champagne house since 1776, and The Savoy's preferred champagne, has collaborated with The Savoy to create the Ice Rink installation in the Thames Foyer. To bring the idea to life, The Savoy has commissioned London-based creative production agency, We Are Family, who took inspiration from a child's jewellery box featuring a spinning dancer. Designed and made for The Savoy by renowned sculptor Gareth Knowles, a life-size ice skater will pirouette under the champagne bauble adorned gazebo, and continually twirl on an ice-like surface throughout Christmas and New Year in the Thames Foyer.
