Overview

A vintage and thematic take on a traditional afternoon tea party, with recipes for food and drink, and complete information on how to style the table, room, invites, and guests
 
The current trend for retro styled events and afternoon tea parties is as much about styling as it is about food and drink, and this book will help readers achieve their own perfect party. Split into themed tea parties, it will teach aspiring hosts and hostesses how to dress their table, decorate their room, and do their invitations, as well as offering costume suggestions, and key recipes for food and drink within each theme. Themes include a Victorian tea party with lace aplenty and dainty cakes; a 1920s speakeasy with cocktails in tea cups and recipes for jazz bunnies; a 1930s country house party with silk, tweed, and high tea with elegance; a 1940s street party with bunting and finger sandwiches; a 1940s tea dance for those who like some swing with their tea; and a 1950s Famous Five picnic—ripping ginger beer anyone? With advice on scaling up into a tea party for many, or down to an intimate tea for two, you can't go wrong.
