Vintage is the new power word. If you want something to sell then put the word “Vintage” in front of it. Vintage clothes, vintage cars, vintage afternoon tea, and even vintage knitting.

Knitting has taken off in a big way, with growing numbers of knitting groups giving the crafty among us the chance “stitch and bitch” to our hearts’ content. And no style of knitwear is more popular than vintage.

“So what does vintage knitting have to do with Afternoon Tea?” I hear you ask. Well, I’ll show you:

You can now attend a Vintage Knitting Afternoon Tea party thanks to Lavinia’s Tea Party, a company, based in the beautiful British Cotswolds, who organise and supply Afternoon Tea parties.

Now I love a simple Afternoon Tea as much as the next person of excellent taste, but I’m always keeping an eye out for new ways to “do tea”, and this certainly ticks the boxes. I only hope they add more dates to the calendar so I can get the chance to head West and try it out for myself.
