More About the Author

If ever there was a beautiful, fiery red head that knew how to bring all the glam of the golden years to life, it's Angel Adoree. Now our vintage siren is writing down her well-honed insight so that everyone can share the magic of this timeless era anywhere and for any occasion.

Angel's eye for beautiful things began at the age of thirteen when she started acquiring fur jackets, jewelled bags and glamorous hats from the vintage eras. A market stall followed and when the stall couldn't cope anymore, Angel moved to a big converted school house in Bethnal Green. It was here in 2001 that the launched 'The Vintage Experience' where Angel offered advice, styling and hand-picked vintage delights for her clients - as well as providing them with delicious cakes! The Vintage Experience lasted for seven years. When this could grow no more, the Vintage Patisserie brand was born.

Angel Adoree appeared on BBC Two's Dragon's Den in 2010 and instantly became the face to remember when she was offered £100k investment from Deborah Meaden and Theo Paphitis for developing her website and business, The Vintage Patisserie - http://www.vintagepatisserie.co.uk.

Format: Hardcover
I loved 'Vintage Tea Parties' by Angel Adoree, and was so excited when I heard that she was writing this follow up volume - and I was not at all disappointed!

Whereas the first book split the tea parties into times of day, (e.g. brunch, afternoon, evening) this one takes you throughout the year, with ideas for New Years tea parties for example. I did think about offering a 4 star review because the title is slightly misleading - I was expecting lots of the parties to be themed around the calendar year, for example Valentines, Easter, Halloween etc. However there is a general sprinkling of non-calendar specific chapters such as baby showers or a gentleman's tea...but to be honest, the ideas are amazing and have given me so much inspiration I felt like that was splitting hairs slightly.

This book really does have it all - wonderful ideas in abundance, recipes that make you want to tie your apron on at once, and so many little extras that make you feel like the book is a wonderful gift. The front cover has beautiful cut away detailing, the illustrations are lavish and there are lots of free photocopiable invitations and thank you notelets to use, lots of directions for how to put your hair up and get the look yourself, and a lovely bound-in ribbon book mark.

If you have been looking for an excuse to dust off your tea pot and become the hostess with the mostess, this is it!

Format: Hardcover
`The Vintage Tea Party Year' is the second book from Angel Adoree, nicknamed `the Queen of Vintage'. I am a massive fan of her first book `The Vintage Tea Party', but believe me when I say, this....is the PERFECT book.

Like `The Vintage Tea Party' Adoree's second offering is awash with whimsical creatures and dark, luxurious images, but there's something else here too: `The Vintage Tea Party Year' is page after page of sheer joy.

The book is separated into sections, featuring different kinds of gatherings. From Hen Parties, to Christmastime; everything is covered and all of the imaginative ideas are easily transferable to other holidays and events.

There are countless recipes including the quirky beef dinner in a jar, edible keys and asparagus cigars, aswell as more familiar treats such as rhubarb cobbler, sweet potato chips and shortbread.
Amongst the edible delights are craft projects and hair and make-up advice. Instead of using pencil drawings as in her previous book, Adoree gives us clear step by step instructions with photographs (we like this!) and all in her unmistakable style.

It is difficult to explain quite how much I like this book, other than to say it a triumph, it is a delight and it is a must for every vintage lover.

Don't you just love a book that along side recipes has craft and hair styling tips, what ! you never had one that has both ? well you never read one of Angel Adoree's seminal works. I just love this book , as soon as you seen the front cover you know you are handling something special, reminiscent of a fairy story book of your childhood, its enchanting.

This is Angel Adoree's second work and is just wonderful, vintage style and with great ideas on how to make seasonal and family celebrations special. The Vintage Tea Party year covers
New Years Eve Tea Party
Children Tea Party
Coming of Age Tea Party
Tea for Two
Hen Tea Party
Wedding Tea Party
Mum To be Tea party
Gentleman's Tea party
Street Tea Party
Picnic Tea Party
Guy Fawkes Tea Party
Christmas Tea Party
Each section has recipes, invites, thank you notes, decoration tips and funky craft ideas to get the party started. As well as penning cookery book , Angel runs a successful vintage event hosting company, this book is so much more than cook book and would make a great gift for a girl friend who loves all things vintage.

With the party season upon us Angel Adoree's The Vintage Tea Party Year is the perfect companion for any host/hostess! I devoured this book in one night and dreamed of all the events I can't wait to celebrate! Armed with all the information in this book party planning will be a lot easier!

With 12 chapters, loosely based on the 12 months of the year, there are plenty of fun ideas to pick and choose from! In saying that it's not the typical 12-month celebrations you might be familiar with. New Years and Christmas are of course present, but then it's more based on events that warrant a party. Such as: Hen-Do's, kids parties, picnics, street parties, Guy Fawkes Night and so on.

Not only is there a range of gorgeous sounding and looking food, but lots of tips to help your event go off with a bang! The hairstyles are a fun bonus as well. I would never succeed in doing the hair myself, but if I had a little help I might be able to pull it off!

Highly recommend this book for any food lover and/or any party planner!!
