On Wednesday the 5th of October 2011 fashionable society ladies (and a few men) gathered for high tea at the InterContinental Hotel in Melbourne to support Special Olympics Victoria.
The Spring Racing – Champagne, Hats and High Tea event featured a fashion parade from designers: Craig Braybrook – Project Runway, John Cavill, Godwin Charli and Ganache Fashion Boutique (presenting Alex Perry and Aurelio Costarella) with millinery from Kerrie Stanley, Serena Lindeman and Zuzana Vranovska.
The InterContinental showcased their high tea skills with some delicious items. My favourite was the white chocolate mille feulle. This high tea event was a preview for what will soon be a more regular high tea event at the InterContinental Melbourne the Rialto.
InterContinental Melbourne High Tea Menu:
- Gippsland Thai beef wrap
- Tasmanian smoked salmon bagel with cream cheese
- Baked brioche with foie gras
- Brioche with Yarra Valley goats cheese and wild figs
- Fruit and plain scones with organic
- Rosella jam and whipped creamTart au chocolat

Champagne, Hats and High Tea was a wonderful event in a stunning setting. If you have the opportunity to attend next year, I absolutely recommend this event.
