A lovely book for helping to plan tea parties. Our museum is in an old Vitorian house where we also serve tea parties & this little book provides some wonderful ideas for settings & recipes.

Terrific book for girls who have tea parties with their grandparents, parents, or friends. It gives them an idea as to how a tea is to go.
Great for Tea Party Planning

I gave this to my friend, who is an avid Alice In Wonderland collector. She loves to give tea parties and she was delighted with the book.
the nicest little tea book

I have purchased several copies this book for friends, to be used as invitations to tea and for my granddaughters flowcharts. The SCONE recipe can't be beat and overall, absolutely delightful.

A must have
Sallianne McClelland (NY, USA) 6/10/2016 11:04 AM
Diane Sedo and Dawn Hylton have presented a beautiful book with wonderful illustrations and photos on a topic that is dear to many people's hearts. The "art" of taking tea should not be lost and I am thankful that these ladies are ensuring that this particular art is being kept alive.
Good Book

Good book. Would have given it 5 stars if every topic followed the "Alice" theme.

I can not wait to try some of the suggestions in this book. I can hardly wait to use some of the ideas in my Tea Room.
wonderful wonderland parties

I already own this book and love it. I plan to use it as an invitation to high tea at MY home. The scones cannot be beat!
Gorgeous Victorian-style high teas

For adults and children. Styles are intermixable. Be prepared for a lot of work, and don't forget to add the traditional and easily made cucumber tea sandwiches. There are some excellent recipes for them on the Web. Bread and cookie cutters in a variety of fancy shapes are sold cheaply at Japanese dollar stores like Daiso. Not to worry if you don't have the lavish tableware shown. Use appropriate pastel and clear plastic partyware and fresh flowers to supplement suitable items you might have on hand. Treasures can also be found among china and glassware at thrift stores and garage sales. You really can't miss making something beautiful using ideas and recipes from this wonderful book.

This is a lovely book; only got it used, but it has neatly and thought out recipes within. It took a long time to come as it came from England, but worth the purchase price. Thanks.

Great book for party decorations and recipes. A lot of cute ideas for children's parties but can be adapted for adult tea parties as well.

A sweet little book full of ideas for "high tea" and party games in the vintage style. It also has numerous recipes to make.
Even though it is geared towards children, it is a delight for adults!
Jackie Leonard (Atlanta, GA) 6/10/2016 10:38 AM
Even though this book is geared toward children it is a must have for the adult tea giver. I host an annual Alice in Wonderland Tea that I do for adults only and I have gotten so many clever ideas from it. It is the kind of book you will go over many times because every time I do, I get a new idea! The recipes, surprisingly, are accurate and delicious. Having tried many, I can assure you they are pretty much "spot on". It is truly a magical book and a must have for every tea party hostess.

This book is filled from cover to cover with all kinds of wonderful ideas for many different kinds of tea parties. I LOVE this book and would definitely recommend it to my friends!!!
A wonderful and creative help!
Patricia (Florida, USA) 6/10/2016 10:34 AM
My daughter and I had many fun hours planning and hosting several parties for some other small homeschooled friends. We mixed a few recipes and substituted some games to suit a diverse age group. Our guests were very complimentary and we received many hugs in thanks.
One of the best tea party books available
Jennifer Petersen (United States) 6/10/2016 10:31 AM
No tea library should be without "Taking Tea with Alice". It is well-conceived and a source of many creative ideas. The photos are wonderful. I particularly liked the children's photos and have found them useful in prompting ideas for other children's tea parties. The table layouts are accurate and beautiful. The ideas presented are within the means of any tea party organizer. This book is a good value and not filled with fluff. An informative, fun book for all ages!
A beautiful book with very creative party ideas
Amazon Customer (United States) 6/10/2016 10:30 AM
This is a wonderful book for anyone interested in Alice in Wonderland, Tea, or just plain entertaining. The book is beautifully illustrated and contains many creative party ideas for children and adults alike. I have tried, and enjoyed, several of the recipes - I particularly recommend the trifle - a real show stopper! I also enjoyed the historical information about the "real" Alice. This book is a "must" for any lover of good food and gracious entertaining.
