With Valentine’s Day due why not treat your loved one to a vintage Valentines Tea Party. A Vintage Valentine Party is a super way of celebrating an intimate afternoon tea together with lovely food, and romantic music, or if you like party atmosphere why not extend your invitations to friends and family. To make it more fun choose an era and all dress for that time period, for example: Titanic and Downton Abbey, Board Walk Empire/Prohibition of the 1920s and 1930s, Miss Marple and tea in St Mary Mead, VE day, Darling Buds of May, and so on. If you cannot hold your party on Valentine’s Day hold it on the Saturday or Sunday before or after. These are spiffing days for parties and if you have an afternoon party it gives you time to recover from too much tea drinking (ahem!) if you are due back in work the following day – perfick!
We can supply you with decorations, vintage china, silver ware, candelabras, sandwiches and cakes. We will deliver the day before if you are supplying your own food, or on the day if we are supplying your food, and collect the day after. You will not be expected to clean the hired items, we will do this for you after collection for no extra charge. You will also need to decide if you require the china to be matching, all one pattern and colourway, or mis-matched, which is the most popular and more fun.
For a party of 8, (or 4 couples) we supply just the right amount of crockery, decorations and suitable tableware for £7.95 per person and you supply your own food. You will be hiring the following:
