I’ve long been fascinated by the style and sensibilities of the Brits (especially their dark sense of humor) and this entertaining book, “The Vintage Tea Party Book,” is a dream come true for an Anglophile like me.
The author, Angel Adoree, runs a bespoke tea party service in London that hosts custom events with a distinctly British flair, a new interpretation of things past. The book is divided into four sections: Brunch, Afternoon, Evening, Style. Throughout its pages are recipes (though you might need a digital scale for conversion purposes), whimsical illustrations, and images styled using Adoree’s impressive collection of vintage wares.
Treats like these truffle hearts infused with loose Earl Grey tea look delightful, and the style section in the back has me dreaming of Victory Rolls and winged eyeliner. I’m going to take Adoree’s advice and start hunting for my own collection of vintage props so I can host a soiree of my own.
