Kempinski Hotel Bahía has certainly put the sparkle into the festive season this year, not least with an €11 million Christmas Tree!
The five metre tall tree has been decorated by Debbie Wingham with €11 million worth of jewels and precious metals. Debbie, a world famous haute couture designer turned couture cake designer, has created some of the world’s most exclusive couture cakes, decorated with jewels and valued at over $15 million. She counts Katy Perry, Drake and Justin Bieber among her celebrity clients.
Debbie and the Kempinski Pastry Team have also created an edible art installation, which will be displayed at “Diamonds and Champagne” event on December 28. At the cocktail dinner each guest will be handed a champagne glass on arrival, and at the bottom of each glass there will be a diamond. The twist is that one of the diamonds is real and a certified gemmologist will view each diamond until the real one is found, with one lucky guest will walking away with a diamond worth over €2,500.
The now traditional life-sized Gingerbread House is also on display as well. Created each year pastry chef Malika, the house takes over three weeks to complete.
