Styling Services and a 'Party to Go' (Vintage weddnigs in Lancashire)

Itsy Bitsy Vintage China Hire aims to offer something for every budget. Whether you're a DIYer and want to collect the china from us in Lancaster and style your party yourself, or simply wish to add a few key  items to your own collection of china, we provide affordable options. From only £3pp for a minimum tableplace setting or as little as 20p for a silver teaspoon or £3 for an authentic vintage teapot, creating a vintage and beautiful party couldn't be easier. Or perhaps you don't like the stresses of planning a party? Simply don't have the time? Well we can also offer you a 'party to go' with our additional catering and photographic partners. Just invite your friends, order your flowers and the rest is taken care of.   All our prices include a free washing up and laundering service. 

Styling is charged at £50 per hour and includes two people to help set up your party room. In careful consultation with you we will create a vintage style that reflects your personality, venue or celebration. We can try and source and incorporate styling details to set your room apart. No two Itsy Bitsy Parties are ever the same. Whether you wish to have a pretty in pink baby shower, a golden and majestic anniversary party, an Alice in Wonderland teaparty, or a candlelight Xmas celebration we can advise and suggest on props. As a business specialising in smaller parties we have the time to create a more complete look.

We can either meet with you prior to the party to show you the china and range of decorative props we stock, and to get an idea for the 'feel' of your party, or communicate with you over e-mail in the build up to your day.  For those of you who would like further ideas and encouragement for 'Do It Yourself,' we can create an inspiration board and forward web images and simple diy suggestions for things you can  make. This would be charged at the same rate as our styling charges. 

An Itsy Bitsy 'Party to Go' is for those of you who would like to relax a little more prior to your big day.  As well as hiring us to set up your party room, and create that 'wow' factor, we can now offer a range of teaparty packages from Katherine Bevington Catering (www.bevingtonscatering) to complete your day. From £6.50 to £8.50 per head, a typical teaparty would offer an assortment of dainty sandwiches, scones with jam & clotted cream, assorted cakes and unlimited tea, coffee or homemade lemonade. This can be elaborated on by adding some savoury items such as vol-au-vents with delicious Morecambe Bay shrimps in a bechemel sauce or crisp parmesan shortbreads topped with pesto or tapenade. All food is home-made and locally sourced and organic as much as possible. For a full list of menu items please enquire. 

We can also provide a professional photographer for your party. Jonathan Bean (www.beanphoto.co.uk)  can be hired for private parties at £50 an hour. You can choose to  have your party recorded in documentary style, or have individual portraits taken of yourself and your guests (or both). We can also create a pop up photo corner with props for more creative and fun portraits. For a full photography wedding package his prices differ, please view the website for further information. 

Itsy Bitsy Vintage will be launching a new party service in the New Year, aimed at getting you and your guests in full creative flow. Watch this space for further information. In the meantime, happy celebrations and remember 'Life should not only be lived, it should be celebrated.
