The Champagne Academy Annual Scottish Dinner

Last week we had the pleasure of hosting The Champagne Academy’s annual Scottish dinner at Mansfield Traquair in Edinburgh for over 100 guests.

The Baldacchino was transformed for a blind Champagne tasting with all 16 Champagne Houses; the twinkling pea light back-drop was the perfect setting for such a fabulous drinks reception! Following the drinks reception, guests were invited to take their seats for dinner in the Nave: tables were dressed in twilight blue linen with gold finishing touches and completed with stunning table centres from Planet Flowers.
