Dollys vintage china will create the charm of a bygone era with a quintessential English tea party theme.  Hire pieces individually, or use our personal service to tailor make a package for your event. 

You may already have your event planned or perhaps you are still in the early stages of ideas, whatever point you are at, we would love to share our experience with you and help in any way we can.

Hire our pretty mismatched crockery and decorative vintage accessories by individual item or by 'price per head' for your event.  Alternatively, let us cater and create the vintage charm of a quintessential English tea party by doing all the hard work for you, where scrumptious catering can also be provided.
