High times at Marriott

HEAD to the fashionable Mother's Day High Tea Soiree at Brisbane Marriott, featuring a glamorous Style Session by Westfield Chermside.

Delight in an indulgent high tea filled with an abundant selection of freshly baked scones, sweet pastries, finger sandwiches and mouth-watering savoury bites, perfectly complemented with Yellowglen sparkling wine, tea and coffee.

The morning session will be hosted by the vivacious Amanda McLeay and all guests can soak up the style advice as resident Westfield Chermside stylist Kim Ring talks you through the latest trends, key pieces of the season, where to find them and how to pull it all together.

Fashion's biggest names are all at Westfield Chermside, with more than 100 fashion stores.

All guests will go in the draw to win one of several fabulous prizes and receive a gift bag and the signature High Tea Soiree cake couture, beautifully boxed, to take home.

High Tea Soiree by Marriott supports Variety - the Children's Charity to empower Queensland children who are sick, disadvantaged or who have special needs to live, laugh and learn.

The event will be held on Sunday, May 13, from 10am-noon and 1.30pm-3.30pm.

Tickets are $70 per person (parking not included).
