Another cup of tea

pexels-photo-210470.jpegWe love a great cup of tea here at Vintage Rose Catering.  Depending on what you are eating should determine which blend and flavour of tea you drink, just like a good wine with a certain meal.

We can advice our guests what type of tea to drink with their afternoon tea if they wish.

Here is our simple guide based on the last 8 years of serving teas

To accompany our Lemon drizzle, Citrus loaf cakes, Orange cakes and all citrus bakes we usually choose Earl grey – a delicious blend of Bergamot and citrus undertones, it enhances every mouthful.

Whereas if you were enjoying a plain sponge say a madeira cake or an American pound cake a Darjeeling would be nice or a Breakfast blend.

Our afternoon tea blend is lovely alongside our carrot cakes or anything frosted and creamy based.

We stock over 15 regular teas and invite our visitors to taste these during their afternoon tea experience. As with a lot of things we often stick to a favourite but this is a great way of tasting new blends and enjoying ones that you wouldn’t necessarily have purchased before.

It was nearly a full house this afternoon for the first of our sunday afternoons with our resident pianist Robert.

We had a good turnout even though it was very dull and rather cold again.  But as usual it’s warm and cosy inside and the music played is a lovely mix for all ages.

We served our delicious afternoon teas, cream teas and some of you enjoyed our speciality festive drinks instead of our lovely tea

A Vintage Wedding

Last week, We had the privilege of bringing our Vintage wedding catering and equipment to the wedding of Jenny Donnelly and Paul Larkins.  We had the first of our wedding consultations with the bride and groom, last year and it was obvious from the start that this would be a very personalised and creative wedding as Jenny, the bride is extremely talented, sewing her own clothes and creating gifts from up-cycled fabrics and buttons.  Paul, hubby is a professional photographer and runs his own company and so with their combined love of vintage we set about planning what to make, that would add more vintage input to their day.

I commissioned a lovely piece of button art designed and made by local artist Emma  as a gift for the couple.  I love the work by Emma and as Jenny mentioned she was going to include buttons in her theme it was an obvious choice for me.

Next we discussed the wedding afternoon tea and as the couple wanted a vegetarian tea we all agreed on the following menu

Earl Grey Tea

Sandwiches of:

Herb and cream cheese

French Brie and Cranberry

Avocado on seeded bread

Roasted garlic, beetroot and feta on spelt bread pizza

Scones, clotted cream and our strawberry preserves

Earl grey and lemon ‘button’ teapot biscuits

A variety of our fruit frangipane’s

A selection of our home-made cakes from our boutique bakery

All to be served on our vintage china, table linens, napkins, cake stands and vintage cutlery.

We created little menu cards with dried lavender and rose clips with hanging tags, these were hand written on cath kidston cards.

The venue was at the beautifully restored Springfield  Hall, Sandiacres.

http://springfieldhall.co.uk/

A unique venue hidden for the past 50 years and now beautifully decorated in a neutral colour that lends well to any celebration.  Situated next to the canal this  adds to the photographic  opportunities and allows a lovely area for guests to spill out to on a warm evening.

Springfield Hall, Sandiacres

 

We started sewing even more bunting to fit the inside and outside of the hall.  In co-ordinating colourways to blend in with our extensive collection of 200 vintage china teacups and saucers and accessories, we excitingly got out the vintage singer sewing machine and gave ‘Suzy’ a good run with the fabric

Over three hundred feet of bunting was sewn and we thank Ashley at Springfield hall for getting up on the ladders to put it all up!
