Tea Party Fever...

With its charismatic characters and stunning avant-garde visuals, this month’s cinematic release of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ has seen tea party fever sweep the nation!

Yet, long before Lewis Carroll wrote his beloved story, Wedgwood has been adding beauty and glamour to this most English ritual for more than two centuries and in continuing its enduring love for tea-time, Wedgwood now introduces two delightful new ranges to its popular Harlequin Collection – bringing Mad Hatter frivolity back to the tea table!

Epitomising fashions love affair for all things past, the unashamedly romantic ‘Queen of Hearts’ tea story features delicate red heart motifs enhanced by precious 22 carat gold gilding in an assortment of delightful shapes, including a two-tiered cake stand, sugar and creamer set, 15cm set of 2 plates, teacup and saucer and teapot.

With a theme of vintage romance, the exquisitely pretty and whimsical ‘Cuckoo’ range takes its design inspiration from the nineteenth century ‘Chinese Flower and Bird’ motif from Wedgwood’s pattern archive and reinterprets it with a decorative twist.

Produced in fine bone china with 22 carat gold trimming, the Cuckoo range features a soft colour palette of pastel pink, green, blue and peach and offers all the essential items for a traditional high-tea, including teacups and saucers, teapot, sugar and creamer, cake plates, sandwich tray and a two-tiered cake stand.

Presented in gorgeous Harlequin hat box packaging, the new Wedgwood ‘Queen of Hearts’ and ‘Cuckoo’ ranges make a charming choice for gift giving and will inspire a new generation to rediscover the pleasure of tea-time without the stuffy formality.

Available now from selected David Jones and Myer department stores and independent home and giftware retailers.
