Champagne, roses, polo…oh my! We are blushing at the thought of the sparkling pink festivities on its way to Auckland this February.
Officially kicking off the calendar on the 19th is The Land Rover NZ Polo Open, and this year there’s nowhere more fabulous to be than at Veuve Clicquot’s ‘Rosé Garden’ Marquee. Millie Austin from La Femme Fleur will be transforming the tent into a quirky, floral wonderland. Expect roses with your Rosé, along with the best views of the polo, live music, beautiful food, and of course more champagne. If you’re lucky enough to be one of the attendees it will be the ultimate place to enjoy this year’s competition.
But fear not, because the festivities aren’t striking out at midnight. If you end up missing out, the bubbles will be continuing on all month long at Tyler Street’s, Ostro, which will play host to a new pink pop up. Yes way Rosé, you heard it right. The upstairs deck will be transformed into its very own Veuve Clicquot Rosé Garden from February 22nd to March 12th. Have your turn at a spot of polo with a round of mallet mini-put, all with a flute of the very finest in hand.
If being surrounded by all the stunning floristry has your inspired, come back to Ostro’s rooftop another night to learn how to make floral masterpieces pretty as a posy with the Rosé Garden floral master classes. Millie from La Femme Fleur will be letting you in on insider secrets, with her first class on Wednesday the 22nd of February from 6:30—8pm and an additional two on March 1st and 8th.
And if champagne and flowers needed anything else, it could only be a touch of French flair! Head to Augustus Bistro in Ponsonby with La Femme Fleur set up out front, for a floral and flute promotion running from February 14th to March 12th.
Now all that's getting us tickled pink with excitement!
