Last night, Vintage Queen and dear Laura Ashley chum Angel Adoree played hostess with the mostess once again for the launch party of her newly released book ‘The Vintage Tea Party Year’, the much anticipated sequel to our coffee table favourite ‘The Vintage Tea Party Book’. Angel (founder of hosting company ‘The Vintage Patisserie‘) returns with sheer finesse, taking you on a beautifully illustrated journey through 12 months of parties, picnics, tea-time treats and quirky craft projects. Get inspired for every occasion with tips for everything from a New Year’s Eve soiree, wedding tea party and baby shower to an intimate dinner date for two or a hen party with a twist.
Judging by yesterday’s press launch, the Vintage Patisserie ladies sure know how to host a party! Taken from the book’s extensive range of yummy recipes, we got to sample everything from wild mushroom and pigeon breast pithiviers (our favourite) to pear & mint chocolate tartlets (a work of art). All yummy treats were washed down with gin cocktails served up from her team of glamorous 50’s clad ladies…
