Vintage Tea Party packages

.....by Dollys are tailor made and styled to suit your individual budgets and requirements.  We pride ourselves on giving a personalised service and will add a touch of vintage tea party charm and effortless style by decorating your venue or home with our eclectic mix of vintage items.  After the event we will clear up and collect (just like your very own vintage fairies!) All we ask is that crockery, china, cutlery and glassware are washed up in warm, soapy water, carefully by hand (due to their age and delicate nature, we ask that you please don't use a dishwasher!)  For an additional charge we can pop on our marrigolds and do it for you. 

We custom each of our services to your needs, therefore prices will vary.  Once you have contacted us with your requirements we will send you a personalised quotation and from this point we suggest arranging an initial consultation at Dollys showroom to discuss the details of your soiree.

Catering collaborations


Over the past 5 years we have had the pleasure of working alongside many other outside catering companies for weddings and larger events and we would love to collaborate with your chosen suppliers or venue. 

We also have recommended suppliers who are able to match the service, quality and level of presentation that we have always prided ourselves on and I am happy to offer their details to you upon request.  These are caterers with whom we have worked along side on many events, so you can rest assured everything will run tickity boo!

Rest at ease that whoever you choose to provide your culinary delights, I will liaise with them throughout the process to give guidance on the tableware that may be needed and give direction on the etiquette of a 'proper vintage tea'. 

What a deal! - two professionals for the price of one and being sensitive to your budget I will ensure that between the three of us we will create the perfect vintage tea party you envisage.  With Dollys extensive collection we can most definitely help with all types of service, as well as any additional styling accessories to make your soiree complete.  We may also be able to help with any of your preliminary decision making and other aspects of the day you are arranging. 

If a collaboration is something you are interested in, we would love to help you create a day to remember.  Dollys collection is vast and full of styling inspiration, I know you will love it.  We not only specialise in enchanting vintage table-ware, but our photo-booth, vintage propscandy table and lawn games incredibly popular and give any event a truly timeless elegance.  It's amazing how our collection can transform any venue and make a celebration one your guests will always remember.
