Yesterday afternoon Transworld joined with Vintage Patisserie to create a sumptuous vintage tea party at 93 Feet East on Brick Lane to celebrate our 2012 contemporary fiction list. The party was attended by Sophie Kinsella, Joanna Trollope, Kathy Lette, Sarra Manning, Jo Carnegie, Carmen Reid, Judy Astley, Tamar Cohen, Hallie Rubenhold and Louise Douglas.
Authors and media nibbled on cupcakes, scones and cucumber sandwiches and the conversation flowed as freely as the prosecco and jasmine tea (in vintage teacups, of course!). There was a resident hair and make-up person present and before long there were victory rolls and red lips everywhere…see above for a snapshot of the glamour!
Each party guest received a personalised goodie bag with a bespoke fiction catalogue, cupcake and other lovely treats to make sure that the Transworld tea party would be an event to remember.
