Attendees can enjoy a refreshment while they shop, with sparkling drops including Champagne Autreau and Daniel Le Brun, craft beers or even a pitstop in the Besos Margarita Garden. Plenty of gift stalls are being set up for the weekend with everything from home fragrances and candles by The Becca Project, to luxury shower bombs by Essentially Tamara.
There will be entertainment for young and old within the event and plenty of dishes to try from Italian street food to fresh ceviche, and more than a few sweet treats.
