DIY Wedding in Lincolnshire? We can help!

Are you planning a DIY wedding in Lincolnshire; at a venue with no china such as a barn or marquee, or one with a strange collection of items that don’t fit your needs?  Why not hire some of  our vintage china collection for your special day?  Whether you’d like cake stands for individual afternoon teas; just cups and saucers for a refreshing drink for your guests, or a creative way to serve dessert; or a bit of everything including teapots, jugs and sugar bowls, we can help.   We deliver and collect the china to you or you venue and do all the washing up afterwards.  We can also help set everything out at your venue if you are short of time or helpers; or just so that you can spend more of your time enjoying the day itself.

 

If afternoon tea for your your guests is on the menu, we can also provide delicious homemade treats.  Do get in touch if you would like more information.

Now that Ticklepenny Teacups is also able to offer the food for your afternoon teas; with or without the vintage china; we thought we’d give you a sneak preview of a couple of the types of large cakes that we make and can provide you with.

These are Victoria sponges, with jam, fresh cream and fresh fruit:

As as you can see, there are different choices of shape, size and fruit, although they are all delicious!  Of course, there is still our popular Pimms Cake for summer parties too; which inches the fruit from a Pimms drink, orange cream and the cake is drizzled in Pimms syrup.  Yum!

We shall be uploading more pictures shortly; as there are many other flavours of cake available – chocolate, lemon drizzle, coffee, carrot and gluten free options to name a few, but if this has tempted you; please get in touch for more information.  If you would like to host an afternoon tea in Lincolnshire, but without having to bake or wash up; we’d be happy to help.

Wedding Colour Scheme

Wedding Colour Scheme

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:

Alternative use for Vintage China

Mostly the china we hire out is used for lovely afternoon teas as you might expect; but vintage china also looks beautiful holding flower arrangements for your tables.
