It's Time for Baby

If you think about all the possible occasions when vintage china could be used, one of the most popular is for baby events. From gender reveal parties, baby showers, sip and see to Christenings and naming ceremonies, vintage china is just perfect, adding to the excitement of the arrival and celebration of their life.

Reveal with China

Increasingly popular is the baby reveal party. What better way is there to coordinate your party with vintage china. Your guests will then be in little doubt about the gender of your baby!!

Treating Mum to Be with a Baby Shower

One of the most popular events based around baby is of course the baby shower, the American tradition which has crossed the pond, which in recent years has become really, really popular in the UK; it's such a gorgeous surprise and treat for the mum to be. Perfect for a garden, (maybe not the summer of 2023!!), in your home, a hired venue, like a church hall. Alternatively, and you probably didn't know, you can hire for vintage china to be used in a nice coffee shop, restaurant or wherever you want to hold the event. All you need to do is let the venue know you've booked vintage china, have everything delivered, set-up ready for the mum to be and guests to arrive. Or you could ask the venue to arrange everything for you.

Introducing Baby to Family and Friends

Once baby has arrived everyone is going to want to descend on you, why not arrange a 'Sip 'N See' morning or afternoon, where people can pop in, see baby, have something to eat, have a drink and go. Far easier than people texting, asking if they can "pop around to see baby", when you just want to get on with being mum.. Have a stack of teacups, saucers, tea plates, pots of tea, some sandwiches or savouries and cakes and invite everyone around, far easier and planned. As always, you can arrange for the china to be delivered, unpacked and set-up for you and once the Sip 'N See' is over, everything can be packed and taken away.

Christening and Naming Ceremonies

A really important occasion for the baby and family and like the Sip 'N See', everything can be arranged and set-up ready for the return for a celebration.
