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!
Having bought the 1st book last year I was hoping this would be just as good but happily it's actually better, everything from the cover detail to the layout is really colourful and inspiring with it's beautiful illustrations, photographs and great creative content.
Wonderful for stylish girls and ladies of all ages!

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.
I love all things vintage so it caught my eye.
Its a very fun and eye catching book thats great to look through and read.
I must confess i bought it mainly for appearance, its got some good hair tutorials and little bits and bob in there amoungst the recipes.
Some really interesting recipes, im not sure all of them are really that practical, maybe a bit fiddly, youre probably not going to have all the little accessories and things they use to give the food such a vintage look, i probably wont end up making them all but overall a good read with some quirky ideas.
Id recommend this if you can get it a little cheaper, i wouldnt pay full price as i didnt find id use maybe half of whats in the book.
Fun book though :-)
This is an absolute must have for any vintage, shabby chic and anthropology lover. It is going to be a treasured and much loved piece that you shall be able to pass down. Beautiful beyond words!!!
