Channel 4’s hit TV show Escape to the Chateau saw Angel and Dick Strawbridge trade in their two-bed apartment in Essex for a run-down, 45-bedroom, 19th Century French chateau in Pays de la Loire. They worked tirelessly to restore it to its former glory, renovating and decorating the stunning property.
Now, Angel Strawbridge has launched an afternoon tea set for Sainsbury’s in true vintage style with delicate botanical patterns that exudes period charm – perfect for pretending you’re in a scene from Bridgerton!
The pretty range includes mugs, saucers, coasters, serving platters, plates, cutlery and an opulent cake stand, perfect for serving up a delicious post-lockdown afternoon tea with the family – or for Mother’s Day, which is fast approaching.
‘Afternoon tea has been my passion since I was a little girl,’ Angel says of her new collection. ‘I love hosting family and friends and have been collecting tea sets since the age of three!
‘By the time I was in my teens, I owned hundreds. It sealed my future and this passion grew into my London-based hospitality business, The Vintage Patisserie, and my first Vintage Tea Party book written over a decade ago.
Every design tells a story and with this collection, I’ve combined my love for afternoon tea with life at the chateau, inspired by Dick’s walled garden, the vegetables we grow and the bees we keep as a family.’
