The Vintage Tea Party by Angel Adoree
The book is a culmination of all things Vintage and Tea Party split into five chapters, starting with an introduction into hosting the perfect tea party with location suggestions, invitation ideas, sourcing props and tying the perfect headscarf. The second chapter, Brunch, is full of both sweet and savoury recipes from chocolate coconut granola to potato and bacon pancakes, and contains features on flower arranging, decorating china and making an apron. The third chapter, Afternoon, is full of cute recipes like lollipop jam sandwiches, bunting butties and, to my delight, a decadent gluten-free chocolate cake. Features in this section include making a bird mobile and how to dry edible flowers.
The fourth chapter is all about the Evening and has recipes for British favourites like beef pie, crown of lamb and fish pie. For dessert there are countless recipes, from a strawberry and raspberry Charlotte russe to pear dumplings with a caramel glaze. Features on candle making and parlour games to encourage laughter and keep your guests amused for hours! The last chapter, entitled Style, gives tips on buying the perfect vintage dress, creating classic hairstyles like the roll and the poodle and how to apply fake eyelashes. Each chapter is accompanied by fabulously British styled photos and delightful illustrations.
The Vintage Tea Party by Angel Adoree is a bumper packed book full of recipes and ideas to creating the perfect tea party. At a recommended price of £20, I think this hardback book is a great buy as there is so much content to pour over!
To summarize, The Vintage Tea Party by Angel Adoree is a wonderful book full of yummy sounding recipes with great tips and advice.
Please note that my opinions are my own and I am not paid for these reviews (apart from receiving a free book, of course!).
Have a sweet day!
