Tea for a Baby Girl
Vintage china is such a wonderful way to help celebrate those wonderful occasions in life and what better occasion than a baby girl. Whether you're planning a baby reveal, shower, Christening or naming ceremony this package could be for you. I've been through The Collection of china and selected what I think would be absolutely perfect for an event to do with a baby girl.
Even though I have selected the china for this package, you still get to select from the range, and the amounts you want from each. I really hope you like the china that I've selected for a baby girl.
A package isn't for everyone, if would prefer to choose your own china and amounts for your event, please do get in contact and I'll provide you with a bespoke quote. If you click on the 'teacup' link, you'll be able to browse the current range of teacup patterns and colours available.
There is also a catering option for you, if you would like to book that through The Vintage Tea Service. Click here to view the Afternoon Tea Menus. Alternatively, if you don't wish to have the full afternoon tea, please get in contact to discuss what catering you require.
Creating your Baby Event
I've gone totally 'girlie' with this selection, bringing together some fantastic pinks to make your event table look absolutely fantastic on a tea party table. To help guide what you'll get with this 'baby girl' package, I've provided an example for 12 guests
So what do you get for 12 guests? Below are the quantities:
This package includes:
12 x Teacups, Saucers and Plates
3 x Tea Pots
3 x Milk Jugs

If you have 4 or 8 guests work on the basis of 1 3 tier cake and teapot and half the cake plates for every 4 guests. If you decide to opt for the catering provided by The Wild Flour Food Co, it's every two guests to a cake stand.
To add that extra special touch you may wish to add the following to your package:
Champagne saucers or flutes, so your guests can toast you and your baby with some fizz
vintage glass vases
dusty pink linen or white napkins
Choosing Your China
One of the benefits of using a package is that it really narrows down choices and really allows you to focus on how to get the very best design for your baby event.
For the teacups, saucers and tea plates, I have selected 4 designs in lighter shades of blue for you to choose from, each is beautiful in its own right. Each of these teacups and saucers has its tea plate and then I've selected two cake/sandwich plates. the first matches with one of the teacup patterns, the other is the perfect soft blue for this baby boy package.
With the 3 tier cake stands, I've selected Wedgwood Williamsburg, Royal Albert 'Jubilee and 'Tranquility' designs, all three are soft and won't dominate the teacups, saucers and tea plates.
The teapots are Queen Charlotte - this teapot has lovely pink flowers, two iridescent teapots, which bring out soft shades of pink and finally, I've got for Wedgwood Williamsburg, of which there are two available, these too are just gorgeous.
You can mix and match between the tea sets. If you click on the picture you can enlarge the images and this will also give you details on the amount of china in that pattern. I will then add in the cream jugs, sugar bowls and if you require clotted cream and jam crystal (or antique glass) dishes, I'll put those in too.
And finally, I've added in a FREE from Hire charge 8" plate, layering adds a lovely touch to a party table, I've decided on the Royal Albert Tranquility pattern.
