Who is Betty?
Owner Lulu - "It was serendipitous that from the concept conversations that the name came to me, and a feeling of familiarity and an instant tingle of confidence that came with the discovery that Betty Blythe did in fact exist, was blessed from conception with a message from her to me ( ok the internet was involved) … ''with every good wish."
Betty Blythe is one of Hollywood's earliest sex symbols. A voluptuous brunette, Betty Blythe was among the first American movie stars to do nude scenes and her acting ability often took a back seat to her wardrobe, or lack of it. Her biggest hit was "The Queen of Sheba" (1921). She later said of it, "I had 28 costumes in that picture, and if I'd worn them all at once I couldn't have kept warm".
This beautiful icon of the silent movie era has watched over us as we serve our wonderful customers, and we have paid tribute to her costumes by dressing as starlets ourselves and accessorising the guests as is customary to when taking tea at Betty Blythe.
It is a wonderful experience to hear the excitement build as the dressing up box is opened and the previously mild manners of the start of the party turns to shrieks of laugher, and posing in the array of hats, faux fur stoles, pearls and gloves until each guest is satisfied with the finished look.
Time for tea and mismatched sets of china adorns the tables with cream table clothes and scattered petals , a pretty flower display in the centre of the table and our shabby chic chairs surround the table, pots of tea are brought to the guests and a selection of fine sandwiches, scones and cakes tempt the guests until they are pleasantly replete!
A quote from a friend of Betty Blythe – “I think she'd consider it a real hoot that someone named a business after her.’
