No matter how one prefers tea to be served, there’s something to be said about the act of gathering in good company and enjoying a cup of tea. Ocean Blue World unveiled their own playful spin on the classic tea party experience with a whole lot of fashion, jewelry and design…and of course, all the trimmings of a dreamy teatime. The sweet spot? Dalia. Located inside the renowned Viceroy Los Cabos resort, Dalia restaurant became the unique tea room offering lavish surroundings, plush furnishings and a delicate menu of traditional treats. Whisk yourself away for an afternoon of trendy tea and go behind the scenes at yet another spectacular #OceanBlueExperience.
By invitation only, the women who wow in Los Cabos were invited to a five o´clock sitting of afternoon tea with white glove service from Viceroy´s finest. Dressed in elegant vintage attire with fabulous fascinators of all colors and kinds, guests were greeted by soft music and waiters in trimmed blazers pouring chilled mimosas and Bellinis. True to the customs of a tea party, the charming outdoor garden space was staged to perfection and fit for a royal indeed. Table settings, décor and event design by Los Cabos Warehouse Rentals took attention to detail to a whole new level, including the Ocean Blue Glam Lounge with its blue-themed cozy furnishings. Pretty pastel shaded florals by Lola del Campo dressed every inch of this dreamy location defining a “Field of Wild Flowers” theme.
And so “Teatime” commenced. Served in artistic ceramic pieces that were as beautiful to look at as they were to use, classic teas such as Jazmin, Ruby Red, English Breakfast and Matcha were gracefully sampled and enjoyed. The menu offered a wide range of both savory and sweets. The egg salad sandwich, chicken coronation, Victoria sponge cake and warm scones went down a treat. As the ladies sipped and top media including Foro TV, Reforma Moda, Glamour Magazine, QPR and Ocean Blue Productions prepared their coverage, the fashion show began. Sonia Falcone, founder and president of the AMA Foundation dedicated to saving the seas, presented her spectacular AMA Designs pop up fashion show — an exclusive collection of dresses, swimwear, blouses, accessories and handbags all made with 100% natural materials. The simply exquisite Daniel Espinosa jewelry was incorporated into the show as well as some furry friends including @caboava. Fashion and design were having a moment and it was hats (fascinators) off in recognition of these iconic artists.
