Funeral Receptions

Celebrating the life of a dear family member or friend is so important, it's also a time as we all know that needs to have a lot of different elements organised, which is why I have created this celebration of life package, comprising of a teacup, saucer, tea plate and teaspoon for each of your guests, along with cake plates and three tier cake to create your finger buffet table.  And of course you'll need to have teapots and accessories like milk jugs and sugar bowls.

If you need a caterer, I can put you in contact with the Wild Flour Food Co, who I have partnered up with to provide catering.

The Service


Sarah was incredibly kind and patient and worked with us to create a lovely afternoon tea style buffet for my mums funeral.


She has such a lovely variety of crockery and extras to choose from too.



July 2023


In terms of what you will need to have to cater for your guests, I would suggest sandwich plates to serve the savoury items and a number of 3 tier cake stands for cakes and pastries.  Depending on your numbers , if you're having sandwich plates to serve savoury items and sandwiches you would need one 3 tier cake stand for every ten guests.  With regards to teapots,for every 6 guests a teapot would be needed, one to eight if alcohol is being served.
