Betsey Johnson designed an Eloise-themed Christmas tree for the legendary Plaza Hotel this holiday season. Inspired by the fun-loving Eloise, the heroine of Kay Thompson’s 1955 classic book, the tree will be featured in the center of the hotel’s Fifth Avenue foyer. Betsey also designed the Eloise suite AND recently opened a holiday pop-up shop in the hotel.
“I absolutely loooove The Plaza, along with Eloise of course!” says Betsey Johnson. “I’ll be poppin’ in to light the Eloise tree and kick off my Betsey holiday pop-up shop, filled with my favorite stocking stuffers and more. There’s something for everybody! Pop in and say hi! XOX Betsey”
On Monday, November 28th at 5pm, Eloise and Betsey fans can attend the Tree Lighting Tea in the Palm Court – Betsey herself will be on hand to light the tree. The tea is open to the public and space can be reserved by calling 212.546.5300 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Pricing for the Tree Lighting Tea is $79 per adult and $45 per child, and includes a champagne toast as well as a ‘mocktail’ for the younger guests.
