More tea vicar? Pop-up Vintage Tea Room

Jodie and I of  Vintage Allsorts & Cake created our first pop-up vintage tea room together on Saturday. The venue was a modest (needed a bit of sprucing up), but pretty village church hall (with parking).  We had fun listening to old fashioned music while we transformed the room with our bunting, pictures, fresh flowers and beautiful lace tablecloths and the room was spritzed with delicate air freshner.  We then displayed our scrumptious homemade cakes and biscuits on beautiful cake stands and vintage plates and switched on the coffee machine – just in time for our first customers.  We had every table full within the first 45 minutes and it continued steadily until we shut at 4.  Our milkshakes with cream and sprinkles on top and gingerbread men were popular by our youngest diners and our full afternoon tea service was in demand too.  All in all, we met some lovely and interesting people and enjoyed welcoming them to our quintessentially british pop-up tea room.  Can’t wait to do it all again on Sat 15th June. x

Nearly ready to open the doors.  There was no time to take photos once the customers arrived!

    • Thanks for the comment. They are really simple and fun to do and I will be going to other peoples too as such value for money and a bit different from High Street coffee bars. Our next one is at this venue, in the village of Watton at Stone, Hertfordshire. Also, we are booked to supply tea and cakes at the Classic Vintage Car & Motobike fete in Harlow, Essex on 6th July, where we will be dressing for the part! We are mainly around the Hertfordshire/Essex/London areas. xx

      • Ahhh okay! We are from Kent so slightly out, but we normally attend as many classic car shows as possible. Not because we like cars, but because we like dressing up! Hopefully we will catch you somewhere soon xx
