My hen do was a surprise organised by my two Maid of Honours (greedy, yes, but I will not be out done by my husband who had two best men!). With instructions on what to wear including no make-up!! I set off to the designated meeting place in East London.
After meeting all my girlfriends who were all dressed up to the nine’s in their vintage wear we headed to one of the rooms above 93 Feet East where a vintage tea party by The Vintage Patisserie was about to start!
Greeted at the door with a teacup of bubbly served by a glamorous vintage hostess, I was then led into a room opulently decorated. In the centre was a table laden with vintage bone china, sweets and vintage ephemera.
We were treated to fantastic cocktails poured into our cups from carefully sourced tea pots and sandwiches with the crusts cut off! Transported back in time with 1920s-1940s style music in the background, there was even a dress up box in the corner decorated with a Union Jack and custom made bunting that is yours to keep!
The cakes and chocolates were decorated with images of me and the hubby as well as some of my many sayings; it was such a lovely personal touch. When we had eaten our fill I was summoned into the adjoining room where I was given a wonderful vintage make-over complete with victory rolls and a beauty spot!
On departing to our next port of call (Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club) we were all given a parting gift of ‘What Katie Did’ stockings that I was over the moon with! I highly recommend this company as host’s for your party and they are also happy to travel to a destination of your choice within the UK, including your work or home.
