I’m joining The Novel Bakers for Tea Party Week, with The Vintage Tea Party Year, by Angel Adoree, British Author, Expert of all things Vintage, Stylist and Baker
Angel Adoree cordially invites you to accompany her on a journey to create your perfect vintage tea party year.
The Vintage Tea Party Year takes you on twelve months of parties, celebrations and teatime treats as well as introducing more games and craft projects for your chosen theme. See the New Year in with vintage style, make Valentine’s Day extra special, give every child their dream tea party, find inspiration for weddings and baby showers, be the talk of the town with your own summer street party and wrap up for winter with a vintage-inspired Christmas. Angel’s inimitable style will take you on a seasonal journey and help you put on the perfect tea party whatever the occasion.
I couldn’t begin to do this book justice with 300 pages and a year’s worth of inspiration! I fancied a picnic from the adorable summer picnic section, but I didn’t fancy our oppressive heat.
I did venture out to for a little boating food fun with Potato “Ships” from the Children’s Tea Party section.
Roast your potatoes, scoop out the potato flesh and set sail with the fillings of your choice.
Hoist a sail with a piece of ham cut into a triangle. A bamboo knot pick makes a mast to skewer your ham or your sail of choice, topped with a grape tomato.
“Rose” Beef Bites with Horseradish Cream
“Rose” Beef Bites are a pretty way to serve a roast beef canapé for a party!
This is my favorite kind of appetizer since you can mix your horseradish cream and assemble the beef in advance, rolling into a small rosette.
To make horseradish cream, mix 1/2 cup sour cream or creme fraiche with 1 tablespoon grated horseradish and salt and pepper. When it’s party time, toast your baguette slices, assemble and serve with a peppery arugula leaf.
And last but not least, a little British fun a Victoria Sponge Union Jack Cake!
Decorate any sheet cake with berries to design a British Union Jack flag or American Stars & Stripes.
“All there is left to do is to eat, drink, love, laugh, and be armed and prepared in the kitchen, so that you can thoroughly enjoy your tea party and hold onto the memory of it forever.”
