Bought as a present, but had a good read first. The recipient absolutely loved it. I would recommend this book

Angel Adoree has done it again! Like The Vintage Tea Party, The Vintage Tea Party Year is a fun, beautiful and interesting book. Filled with a mixture of classic and more unusual recipes, it also has fresh takes on dishes such as Banana-Eton Mess and Beef Dinner In a Jar; as well as unique delights such as Asparagus Cigars and Edible Keys. Like its predecessor, the book is beautifully illustrated and decorated, and Angel has elaborated on the vintage hairdo tips and invitation ideas. Angel has also organised her recipes and tips by the calendar year, including New Year, St. Valentine's Day and Christmas. However, she also includes landmark events such as Hen Parties, Baby Showers and Children's Birthday Party- the Circus themed birthday party is a highlight!
The other highlight is the Gentleman's Tea Party- fantastic ideas which are far too good for just the men-folk to enjoy!
In short, any fan of The Vintage Tea Party will not be disappointed and it makes a perfect gift!

I fell in love with look but found some of the content a little disappointing, not all recipes are well written and easy to understand

Oysters, chocolate-covered spoons and lampshades made from mother-of-pearl shells?

This would perhaps be a nice book for those with more money than they know what to do with and eons of time on their hands, but for the rest of us, really not practical.

I mean, the lampshade looks nice enough, but by the time you've sourced the dozens and dozens of shells required and paid goodness-know-what for them, you end up with a lampshade that you could have bought for a tenth of the price for a good department store.

And how many folks in real life serve oysters at a tea party? Desperate Housewives, perhaps, but for real people, no.

If you want a recipe book, buy a different one.
If you want a craft book, buy a different one.
If you want something silly to pass the time until the butler arrives with cocktails, this is the book for you!
