English Table Tea Party - Katie Alice Collection Review

Afternoon tea and tea parties are all the rage right now. They used to be for older people but now us young'uns are taking up the lazy pass time eating cakes and scones whilst drinking tea. English Table, one of the UK's leading suppliers and manufacturers of quality design-led tablewear and giftware, asked if I'd like to review some of their products. I browsed their site and found some gorgeous products for all different tastes. I love these items which I've picked from the Katie Alice Collection.

I decided in that in order to make the most of these pieces I would provide the bits and pieces I needed for a tea party. I put a brew on, perfected my scone making and baked a few chocolate cupcakes!

Cottage Flower Cream Wire Cooling Rack - £10.00*
Now I am in my house I have started getting in to baking. In order to cool whatever I make after it has come out of the oven I needed a cooling rack. This rack is so adorable, its in a circle shape with little petal extras to make the space available wider. There are words printed on saying 'bake, eat, enjoy, cake'. It is such a sturdy wire rack which can hold around 10-12 small cupcakes. I think this is great if you want something cute but useful!

Cottage Flower 12 Round Green Silicone Cupcake Cases - £7.00*
When I've seen people make cupcakes before it has always been with the little paper cases. These were something different to use that came in a gorgeous mint colour. The cases are flexible, yet keep their shape when used. It is great that they can be washed out and used again as it saves money but if you want to give cakes away you have to ask for the cases back!

Bird Song Pink Spot Fine China Palace Mug - £4.99*
This is such a cute mug made of fine china. A lot of people say that tea tastes better in a china cup! I love this pale pink colour of this mug with the little white polka dot pattern.

Bird Song Blue Fine China Cup and Saucer - £15.00*
I love this little cup and saucer! It is such a delicate piece that makes you want to drink the tea from it with you pinky held high. The colour is stunning and the bird image is adorable!

English Garden Two Tier Cake Stand - £20.00*
Last but no means least is the English Garden two tier cake stand. It is absolutely gorgeous! Such a beautiful stand that could be without cakes as a gorgeous centre piece. The flower images on the porcelain plates are so pretty! This is one of my favourite items and I can't wait to have people round for tea and cake with this taking pride of place on my table!

I also received the English Garden jug* which would be perfect for keeping cold drinks in for a barbecue. I couldn't find a link for this on the site but it really is a gorgeous piece that would also work as a vase for some gorgeous summer flowers.

I can't wait to have a proper tea party and invite my friends around to benefit from this lovely stuff!
