Gorgeous vintage china hire and some beautiful cake stands!

     Selected china hire prices lowered in price!



Castle Inn Photohoot, Hornby, Lancashire.

I often write blog posts highlighting my popular styling services but did you also know I also carry a gorgeous collection of authentic vintage china from the Victorian period through until the early 1960's?

Rather than building my collection quickly through the purchase of china sets online or at auctions, much of my stock is individually chosen as a one off purchase. It's carefully sourced and selected to compliment the existing collection, or was chanced upon and simply too pretty to overlook! It's taken a while to build as individual trios but I'm sure you'll agree it was worth the effort.

All my stock is bone china in near perfect condition for it's age. Lots feature hand painting over transfer decoration (typical of the 1930's and 1940's ) and some even have 22 carot gold gilding. None of the sets they belong too are still in production so you can't find these easily in charity shops or carboot sales.

Afternoon tea party with food catered by Bevington Catering.

I particularly love my collection of two and three tier cake stands (and so do you judging from the bookings they've had) and I am now reducing the cost to you, so my two tier stands are now £3 each to hire and my three tier stands are now £4 each to hire. My sugar bowls and milk jugs have also reduced to 50p each. Just a little gift so more of you can enjoy the experience of an amazing afternoon tea party celebration!

Details: For a table of eight guests I recommend one 2 tier and one 3 tier cake stand. Each three tier stand holds up to 14 small items (finger sandwiches, tarts or cakes), and each two tier stand holds up to 11 small items. For greedy guests 2 three tier stands are recommended or one stand for savouries and one stand for sweets. 

Overall hire cost for a party of 80 guests: £70.

All Cake stands available now to hire from Itsy Bitsy Vintage.
