Eddie Zaratsian celebrates Tea With E at the Langham and Vanichi’s SEEN section looks at the highlights from the day.

Event designer and floral artisan Eddie Zaratsian knows how to throw a party. On November 17, 2015, his afternoon Tea With E at The Langham in Pasadena, California celebrated Zaratsian’s extensive network of event/wedding/social planners and tastemakers. Hosted in the Viennese Ballroom which was built in 1914, Zaratsian modernized afternoon tea and supercharged the gorgeous, stately interior of The Langham.
