If you are serving an afternoon tea at your event, depending on how much china you order, you may need to think carefully about space.
Let me show you a very vintage photo to illustrate:
This is my grandparents wedding breakfast in August 1945. I absolutely love the photo, and inherited my love of china and afternoon tea from my Nanna; but you may notice the amount of items in the table! And this was during rationing, when food was scarce; how much more might you want to put on your tables today?
I am very happy to meet up with you during the booking process, with some of the china so that you can get an idea of how a place setting will look and work out if you will have space to do what you want to. That way, if there is not going to be room, we can consider other options, such as a serving table which guests select food from, rather than load everything on the individual tables. In addition, you can get to see the china for yourself, and also judge whether the food you are intending to serve will fit!
If you’d like a free, no obligation meeting to discuss this; do get in touch by email or phone and I’m happy to arrange it. You can also borrow a cake stand if you’d like to show it to your caterers if that helps with your decision making. Alternatively, as we now provide homemade afternoon teas; you can book to sample our wares to see if you would like us to provide the china and the afternoon tea!
Are you expecting a happy event? Congratulations! If you would like to celebrate with a baby shower or Christening party, we can help with pretty china to match your colour scheme. Whether it’s pretty in pink …
baby blue …
Perhaps minty greens ..
or maybe multi-coloured ..
Do get in touch to discuss your requirements, via the contact page, email email@example.com or via our Facebook page.
Have you got a colour scheme or theme for your wedding or special event? If so, let us know, and we will see if we can match our china with it. It isn’t always possible, particularly for a large booking, or a more unusual colour scheme, but we will try and help you as much as possible. Cups and saucers can be matched, or mis-matched, whichever you prefer; or we can go for a whole variety of colours!
Here the theme is pink flowers:
Whereas this was for mixed blues and yellows:
And this selection was for green tones:
If you have something specific in mind, get in touch to see if we can help. We are also happy to source items for you if we don’t have them in stock.
If you have recently become engaged, congratulations! You are bound to be bombarded by questions about your plans, and have probably begun to spend hours trawling the internet for inspiration, or to source your ideas. Boy is there a lot of information and advice out there; the latest trends, celebrity weddings, diy ideas, budget planning, ways to save, ways to impress – you name it, there is a wedding related article on it
I am not going to add to the mix, except to say, that if you are looking for vintage china hire in Lincolnshire, have a look at the photos in the gallery. If you like what you see, contact me – no obligation, and see if I can be of help on your special day.
