Decking the Halls at Brown’s Hotel

When Christmas cards come to life and your tree is adorned with all manner of literary wonders, you know you are in for an evening to remember. Last night we celebrated the unveiling of our partnership with Brown’s Hotel with no small dose of festive frivolity.

From the revellers glimpsed from the windows at the front entrance to the garlands bedecked Brown’s hallowed halls, guests were invited to spend an evening inside the imagination of Smythson and Brown’s Hotel.

Whilst sipping Ruinart Champagne and Belvedere cocktails, guests explored our Christmas takeover with it’s larger than life Christmas card handcrafted from our iconic White Wove paper with well wishes calligraphed inside.

A plethora of Nile Blue boxes were nestled under a tree overflowing with our signature Panama and Wafer notebooks whose witticisms were selected to spread the spirit of the season.

Even the canapes took a turn for the whimsy with Brussel sprout and pancetta tartlets, cider glazed pigs in blankets and seasonal duck with salted skin so deliciously prepared that the humble sprout was humble no longer.
