For each occasion we will provide all of the necessary items to carry out a full vintage tea service:
VINTAGE CHINA - Trios, (matching cup, saucer and side plate) teapots, 2 and 3 tiered cake stands, cake platters, jam and cream dishes, sugar bowls, sugar tongs, milk jugs and cutlery.
CONTEMPORARY WHITE BONE CHINA - As an alternative, if you prefer the idea of being served an excellent range of cakes, scones and top quality teas in a more modern setting, we can also supply a contemporary white fine bone china tea set offering the same delicious treats. This is offered at the same cost as our vintage tea sets. Please just advise us at the time of booking.
TABLE LINEN - Crisp white linen table cloths and napkins
DECORATION - Cotton bunting, table plan board, wooden signs etc
VINTAGE GAMES - Croquet, coconut shy, wooden skittles and a wooden tumbling tower
IN PREPARATION - We will accompany you to your venue prior to your function and together we will agree on the most effective way to tailor-make your occasion to create an atmosphere of elegance and nostalgia. We will discuss with you which items from our vintage china sets you would prefer to use, colour schemes etc so you are completely happy with all arrangements. At this stage, you can also decide which of our vintage games your guests will most enjoy on the day and where they should be set out.
ON THE DAY OF YOUR FUNCTION
SET UP - Prior to your guests arrival, we will decorate your venue if required and set out the vintage games as agreed. We will then set the tables and lastly we will prepare your food. We prepare and freshly cut the sandwiches on site to ensure ultimate freshness.
DURING THE SERVICE - Our highly trained waitresses will serve loose leaf tea from our vintage teapots and replenish food as and when required. (Please note that we can also serve freshly brewed coffee to any of your guests should they prefer this to tea and cloudy lemonade for children)
AFTER THE SERVICE - We will clear up, wash up and pack up leaving no mess and so allowing you to sit back, relax and enjoy the rest of your celebration!
