Confection Perfection

October 03, 2016
Breast Cancer Awareness Month
If the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, then the way to a girl’s soul is through a divinely delicious ‘Pink Afternoon Tea’ and a glass of rosé fizz. Whether you’re staying at The Peninsula Beijing in October, or just popping in for a treat for two, book yourself in for this special occasion, designed to raise funds for the China Breast Cancer Foundation. Sweet, savoury and seductive, it’s the perfect date destination...

Served daily in the grand Lobby, surrounded by eye-catching Chinese artworks, the silver Afternoon Tea platter is adorned with pastel-shaded gourmet treats, from a crabmeat finger sandwich on toasted beetroot bread to a strawberry lime globe and a lip-smacking raspberry and pistachio éclair. Don’t mind if we do!

The Peninsula Spa’s ‘BR Body Relaxing and Nourishing Treatment’ will ensure your body gets spoiled too. You can even win a complimentary stay, plus dreamy dining and spa delicacies, if you join the hotel’s celebratory Pink Event’s Weibo’s campaign.

Culture vultures won’t go hungry either, thanks to artist Chen Man’s imaginative work for the month-long campaign. Celebrating beauty and power, and evoking dialogue about this taboo illness, Chen has created ‘Vision: Taikongnaut’ for The Peninsula Beijing. A tear-shaped photograph, it commemorates China’s first manned spaceflight and explores dynamic human potential. Now, if only they made zero-gravity pink macarons?!
