The Vintage Tea Party Book Giveaway!

vintage tea party
Recently, I was given The Vintage Tea Party Book. Though I hadn’t heard of it before, I did the unthinkable (!) and judged a book by its beautifully illustrated cover. I knew I was going to love it.

Thankfully, I’m not eating my words! Written by vintage goddess Angel Adoree (of Dragon’s Den and Vintage Patisserie fame), this book covers everything from tea party recipes, to vintage styling, to invitations, to vintage hair – from brunch to dinner time. The book is a visual treat in itself. I have yet to try a recipe but – from what the internet has been telling me – all of the results are as delicious as the photos.

To share the love, I’ve got a copy of The Vintage Tea Party Book to give away to one lucky reader!

To enter:

– Leave a comment below and tell me your favourite tea-time treat!

The contest is open worldwide. You have until June 31st, 2012 to enter. The winner will be chosen at random.

Good luck! xo
