Vintage Tea Parties – A How To…

July 24, 2011

Ever growing in popularity as an alternative hen party, birthday get together or girly garden party, vintage tea parties are being held all over the UK by lovers of a bygone era.

There are a plethora of hire companies to choose from, so wherever you’re based, you can be guaranteed to fill your tables with the prettiest vintage china and glassware.

One of my favourites has always been The Vintage Patisserie since seeing them appear on Dragon’s Den. Their website is so fun and quirky and really captures the imagination.

Angel, the brains and the beauty behind the  fabulous concept, pitching her idea on Dragon’s Den:


It is with great delight that I have recently stumbled upon their new book! Yes, that’s right, now you too can learn how to host your very own Vintage Tea Party with advice, recipes and tips (even down to Victory Rolls!).  After all, it’s not just the china and cakes which will make your party fabulous!

Purchase here or here

I will be sure to pick up a copy and would advise you all run out and buy one too as they’re sure to fly off the shelves!!

    Lovely post Elle – we love creating our very special vintage style cupcakes for tea parties. Think we may have to purchase that fabulous book though – it looks wonderful! xx

      It’s a must-buy Ali – the perfect tea party is about much more than cupcakes (though yours are fabulous of course!) xx
