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!

I really can't recommend this book enough!

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!

This is now one of my favorite books. An excellent book to source ideas for holding your own tea parties from whatever the occasion. Well written and beautifully illustrated. I love that it contains invite templates for you to use when holding your own tea parties. A beautiful book filled with loads of yummy recipes. Also includes craft ideas and even shows you how to style your hair in various vintage styles. Great for all who like to make a party that little bit extra special for their guests. I will treasure this book.

I was interested to know how ths would compare to the original first book and I feel it is even better- aside from the loveliness of all the inspiring ideas and illustrations the thing that really makes this book so special is that it is inspiring- you want I get that table dressed and that whole party tarted- very good and I have given it to the girls x 10 again!

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

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.

I saw this book in an expensive bookshop, noted it down and later bought it on Amazon.
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 :-)

I've lusted after this book for a few months and finally decided to purchase it last week. Within 2 days it arrived which was really impressive. From the outside the book is of fantastic quality, the front cover is so beautiful, although I didn't really know what to expect from inside. I was totally blown away when flicking through it, every single page is adorned with beautiful and stunning drawings, the font a stunning vintage scroll that's still easy to read, and the photography is just breathtaking. The ideas are just amazing, in each section there are exquisite invitations and thank you notes for you to copy and use. I was so happy to see my theme of stags throughout the book (my fiancée and I have a slight stag obsession!) there's even a wedding invitation that we shall most definitely be using for our future wedding!

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!!!
