Designer Breakfast to Feature Award Winning Carrier and Company Interiors
To kick off the day’s festivities, Near & Far Aid will host a pre-tour Designer Breakfast at the Patterson Club, from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., featuring award-winning husband and wife design duo Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller of Carrier and Company Interiors, whose client roster includes Anna Wintour (VOGUE) and famous photographer Annie Leibovitz. Carriers’ work is always a mix of timeless and contemporary design, from elegantly traditional, to luxuriously minimalist or glamorously bohemian. Guests are sure to leave feeling inspired as they set off for the day!
Afternoon Tea Party to Return to 2017 Tour
Following its successful debut last year, Near & Far Aid will once again host an Afternoon Tea Party. Patrons will have the opportunity to take a well deserved break from the Tour and enjoy a traditional English Tea in a private home. The Afternoon Tea Party will be catered again by Royal Tea Company and will feature continuous service between 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
