Owner, Baker & Maker of Pretty
I'm Maryanne and this is me and my little family of Nut Nuts ~ MiMi, Boo, Beau Beau, Mr. Jam & Tea and Myrtle the Sausage Dog.
I am a nostalgic kind of girl, a passionate collector of retro loveliness and an ambitious creator of domestic, cosy bliss. My spare time is spent thrifting, rummaging and scouring for treasures. I seek inspiration from the innocence of the past and aim to sprinkle my geeky charm wherever I may be.
A little bit about Jam and Tea
Jam and Tea was created in 2009 out of an obsession with great grub, style and the need to feed people up. Since then my little business has evolved into a successful company that caters for all sorts of events whilst still keeping our small, homespun business ethic strong. Jam and Tea do it all, from intimate dinner parties to large festival style Weddings.
We are incredibly proud of the relationships that we have built over the years with our corporate clients. We have had the pleasure of working with Topshop, Miss Selfridge and Hemmingway Designs to name a few. We thrive on new challenges and find that fabulous, forward thinking clients help us stay fresh, unique and focused.
We offer bespoke packages that reflect people; their individual style, loves and budget. We encourage our clients to pick their favourite foods and flavours and to go from there. Adapting their choices into delicate little canapés or hearty full on feasts.
Everything is homemade using local and organic produce as much as possible.
From delectable vintage tea parties served on beautiful china, to quirky rustic picnics displayed on handmade wooden boxes and enamel. We are known for our 'Pimp your Pie/Mash/Spud Bars' which are fully loaded with all sorts of yumminess to sprinkle over your chosen comfort food. Our Buffet bars work really well with tipi, festival, camping style shindigs where you may want to keep things casual and laid back.
Props / Styling
Over the years, we have collected an exciting array of quirky props, from a light up Ziggy Stardust thunder bolt, to lots of cute, kitsch accessories. We offer lovely large discounts on any props/styling packages for Jam and Tea catered events.
