Spotlight Series: The Biscuiteers


When it comes to hosting, details are what make the experience enjoyable. Of course, when there’s afternoon teatime, it’s no exception.

In collaboration with the Biscuiteers, I wanted to put the spotlight on the exemplary British brand that merges two things that Fashion Tales adores—travelling and fashion, obviously! For the afternoon tea, I chose to use the “Vintage Traveller” biscuit tin, which if you’re a fan of the novel, Around the World in Eighty Days, you will appreciate the inspiration, which was Phileas Fogg. The tin is filled with intricately designed biscuits in the form of a compass, passport, aeroplanes, hot air balloons, and a vintage suitcase.
The “Fashionista” biscuit tin was also a personal favourite, and I used them to dazzle our tablescape setting. This tin is perfect for the fashion enthusiast and would clearly be an edible “statement” accessory. There’s clutch bags, earrings, and embellished dresses.

But, the biscuits are not only unique, they are simply sweet handcrafted treats that are artful and delicious. Each one is remarkably produced in just about every type of theme and shape imaginable: from festival season to Royal Ascot-inspired biscuits. The Biscuiteers is certainly not your everyday type of biscuit bakery. And, being a biscuit enthusiast myself, I do appreciate the range of clever themes and playful styles that will suit any occasion.

If you want something other than biscuits, they also make cakes, chocolates, and macaroons, all of which can be personalised.
Flourishing Extras to Love:
Husband and wife team, Harriet Hastings and Stevie Congdon, established the Biscuiteers in 2007. Their brilliant concept of creating stylish biscuits that are all handmade and delivered with topnotch service is what set the brand apart from the lot of many. And, the proof is certainly in the (sugary) pudding, so-to-speak!

“We wanted the biscuits to be beautiful and witty. We called them ‘collections’ because we knew we wanted to launch them seasonally like fashion collections and to keep refreshing and developing the range,” Hastings said.

The now, well-known brand has partnered and worked closely with award-winning companies and fashion brands, including Burberry, Swatch, Net-a-Porter, and Selfridges, amongst others.

Almost, exactly two years ago, the Biscuiteers expanded the company and opened their very first Biscuit Boutique & Icing Café in Notting Hill. They even offer icing classes for those willing to go onward with the task of learning how to frost a biscuit.

Come join the visual tea party in high-fashion. I hope you’ve come with an appetite! Just sit back and indulge in this tablescape voyage, all provided with an imperial front-row seat. But, don’t fret, we’ll skip the tea sandwiches, and keep them stowed, so that you can have tasty seconds for the ultimate biscuit-dunking experience.

    Yes I have bought and tasted Biscuiteers and they are just as delicious as they look. I was fortunate to visit the café in Nottinghill, London. My biscuit was a bikini design! I also bought some adorable Easter biscuits to take home. If I had had more time I would have liked to have stayed to ice my own biscuit. Maybe next time.Your afternoon tablescape is fabulous and so creative. Great post!
