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
Some of the cakes on our cake table
Nearly ready to open the doors. There was no time to take photos once the customers arrived!
Gingerbread men, ginger biscuits (to sit on the side of the cup) and vanilla decorated biscuits. Boxed up the night before.
Cake has been very busy working on a new venture, in addition to creating party cakes, I have joined forces with Vintage Allsorts (suppliers of vintage chinaware, glass and cutlery) and we have created Vintage Allsorts & cake. We will be supplying afternoon tea, both traditional and themed party, for all events. Here are a couple of photos of what we can do. The first is a traditional afternoon tea set up, the second is a more contemporary afternoon tea party. A facebook page is being set up and I will post when done if you want to take a look. Roll on summer.!! x
