A novel take on the traditional afternoon tea experience, Anantara Siam Bangkok’s Art Afternoon Tea series offers a platform for Thailand’s creatives to explore new mediums and reach a wider audience, while treating guests to exquisite confectionery and visual delights.
The latest artistic partnership, called “House of Blooms”, is launching in the lobby on June 16th in collaboration with Thai visual artist Naraphat Sakarthornsap.
The whole experience, from décor to exquisite cakes and tableware, was inspired by Naraphat Sakarthornsap’s creative process, in which he tapped his childhood imagination to create a fantastical world of lavish flowers that defy the laws of nature. The resulting floral collages, displayed in the lobby in light boxes, are striking, multi-layered and playful, reminding guests to enjoy every moment and savour new experiences.
His art is coupled with and enhanced by the elegant confectionery from Anantara’s Cluster Executive Pastry Chef Anupong Nualchawee. He uses the motif of overlapping blooms to create delightful petal cakes served on a gold-plated tiered tray alongside fresh flowers and dewy moss. In ‘orchid’ cakes, he brings together tangy passion fruit and rich chocolate, while the delicate apple rose petals are balanced with yuzu meringue. Artfully camouflaged as kala flowers and orchids are two playful white peach and cherry blossom pop cakes.
Equally creative are the multilayer savouries such as shrimp wrapped in lotus and spring rolls with sea bass, as well as scones flavoured with lavender and white chocolate served with clotted cream, pineapple and jasmine jam, and caramel butter. Guests can upgrade the experience by opting for one of the refreshing mocktails or two glasses of premium champagne.
House of Bloom Afternoon Tea is available daily from 2pm to 6pm and is priced at THB 1,950++ for two guests including tea, coffee or mocktail, with additional THB 1,000 for two glasses of Moët & Chandon Champagne.
