The FLOWERBX Afternoon tea
We are are delighted to announce our brand new collaboration with the online flower delivery service that has taken the UK fashion industry by storm: FLOWERBX. With a curated selection of cakes that represent the season’s most exquisite flowers, this partnership is as beautiful as it is delicious.
The Balthazar x FLOWERBX Afternoon Tea brings together the skill of our Head Pastry Chef Régis Beauregard, with the floral expertise of FLOWERBX CEO Whitney Hawkings. To start, a selection of traditional, freshly prepared finger sandwiches will be served, including cucumber, mint and homemade hummus; smoked salmon and lemon crème fraîche; and lobster prawn roll. Buttermilk scones with Devonshire clotted cream & homemade strawberry preserve, along with floral sweet treats, will follow.
Cakes in the shape of colourful seasonal blooms, in beautiful FLOWERBX hues: Sky Blue Hydrangea, Violacious Tulips, Petal White Anemone, Sunburst Dahlia, and the newly introduced, deep red Balthazar Rose. Each FLOWERBX cake has been expertly paired with flavours to complement both the flower and the hue. These include Apple and Blackberry Tulip, Coconut and Yuzu Hydrangea, Salted Caramel Anemone, Lemon & Blueberry Dahlia and Balthazar Raspberry Rose.

THE FLOWERBX FIZZ
Guests will of course be able to choose from a variety of fragrant and traditional teas however if you fancy something a little stronger, Balthazar Bar Manager, Brian Silva, has it covered. The Flowerbx Fizz cocktail is a delicious concoction of pinky vodka, cocchi rosa, cocchi Americano, Blanquette and crushed violet petals; the ideal accompaniment to the floral flavours of the cakes.
THE BALTHAZAR ROSE
A red rose is a symbol of love, and often described as the most coveted flower in the world, as such we’re honoured that FLOWERBX has created a unique colourway dedicated to us. The beautiful, deep red Balthazar Rose is new to the site, added to celebrate this exciting collaboration. The Balthazar Rose will be available online from Monday, 12 March.
