Synopsis

Style Me Vintage: Tea Parties Recipes and tips for styling the perfect event by Betty Blythe

In a melding of the fun style of the 'Style Me Vintage' series with a traditional cookery book, Style Me Vintage: Tea Parties is a vintage and thematic take on a traditional afternoon tea book. 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 show you just how to achieve your own perfect event. Split into themed tea parties, it will show how to create your tea party: dress your table, decorate your room, do your invitations, costume suggestions, and offer key recipes for food and drink within each theme. Themes include: a Victorian Tea Party (lace aplenty and dainty cakes), an Edwardian Breakfast (country house pastries and breakfast cocktails), a 1920's Speakeasy (cocktails in tea cups and recipes for jazz babies), a 1930's Cocktail Party (silk, tweed, champagne with elegance), a 1940's Picnic (fiery ginger beer anyone?), a 1950's Street Party (bunting and finger food). With advice on scaling up into a tea party for many - or down to an intimate tea for two, you can't go wrong.
