There’s something really lovely and gorgeous about vintage china, whatever your event or occasion, tea served in vintage china teacups, dainty finger sandwiches eaten off china tea plates, with cakes and scones served off stunning 3 tier cake stands, so whether you’re holding a summer afternoon tea in the garden, a wedding or other special event, vintage china turns an English tradition into a memorable occasion.

 Welcome to The Vintage Tea Service, a boutique vintage china hire business, offering a unique afternoon tea catering experience.  The Vintage tea Service is located in the beautiful market town of Frodsham, Cheshire.  With a passion for vintage china, or crockery, (however you want to describe it) particularly the 1920’s, ‘30’s, up to the 1950's, it’s these eras where the focus of the collections will be, but I'll never pass up a gorgeous tea set!! With a wealth of knowledge on English bone china, I only supply the very best quality vintage brands; with this love and attention to detail, The Vintage Tea Service will create a table to make your party a unique and exclusive experience for you and your guests, what ever the occasion.

 The Vintage Tea Service also provides the option for you to book your catering for your party events, and wedding reception. You do not need to have the catering option, you can just hire the china and accessories.  If you want to book your catering with The Vintage Tea Service,  there are two options, The English Afternoon Tea and The Indulgent Afternoon Tea. In addition there are four wedding menus for couples to choose from, all beautifully catered by The Wild Flour Food Co, who are partnered with The Vintage Tea Service.

Hiring rather than buying means you get a great themed event without the hassle of searching, buying and storing the china yourself; even better I'll be doing the washing up for you too!! Read through some of the kind words clients have written about The Vintage Tea Service to find out what to expect when you hire your vintage china.

Having a party is always going to be a memorable experience, and adding in those little extras can create such a fantastic table, you can also have beautiful table place names created for your party.  I just love the thought of taking away a memento of the day, take a look at the fabulous range available. 

  I really hope you enjoy the collection. Please do get in contact with any questions and queries about The Vintage Tea Service, I'd love to hear from you.

The Service

At the very heart of The Vintage Tea Service is the desire to take your ideas and make them reality, as well as  providing you with a very personal, bespoke service, with an eclectic mix of beautiful vintage china, catering and everything else you'll need to create and hold a wonderful event. A tea party is a wonderful way to celebrate birthday's, weddings, anniversaries, baby showers/reveals, christening and naming ceremonies, hen/bridal party's, or just an excuse to have friends around.  They're also a fitting way to commemorate and celebrate people at funeral receptions/wakes.  In addition to private events, I also provide a corporate events service. What ever the occasion, vintage china really adds a special touch. 


What makes The Vintage Tea Service unique is the choice clients get and it's about giving you the design options.  I'll work with you on your ideas, but if you want me to take total control I will.  Everything about The Vintage Service is about fulfilling your ideas, to create the event you want.  Whether you want to do your own ‘mix and match’ from the collections; provide me with a brief to work around or choose from one of the specially designed packages, it’s up to you.   And when you come to hire our vintage china, you’ll notice that I offer a generous hire period of up to 4 days, 3 nights, at no additional cost.  This allows you time to style, set up and then pack away after the event finishes without having to rush.

The beautiful collection of vintage china is available to hire in the following areas: Cheshire, Liverpool, the wider Merseyside region, The Wirral and into Shropshire, North Wales, Manchester and Staffordshire too. If you're further afield just send me an email and we can discuss availability and logistics.
