Guy and Alex0593At Vintage Tea Sets we take pride in being able to offer our clients the very finest tea sets and dinner services combined with a commitment to bringing impeccable flair and style to every event. We listen to our clients’ exact requirements and will assist you to achieve the results that you want.

Vintage Tea Sets was founded by Vicky Rowe; instigated as a passion for fine vintage china to becoming an avid collector and in 2009 meticulously planning her own 1920s themed wedding. The seeds were sown and Vintage Tea Sets developed from an all-consuming hobby into a thriving business. In 2010 Vintage Tea Sets partnered with McBaile exclusive to grow the event catering packages and the demand was so high that McBaile now runs the china hire side of the business alongside the catering. The combination of the highest quality china, food and service has allowed Vintage Tea Sets to grow into an established business.

When we saw your website we just knew we had to hire china from you and we weren’t disappointed. I requested all pinks, whites and gold themed crockery and that’s what you gave us. Stunning, people are still raving about it. Thank you xxx

You made ‘my wife’ and I even happier when we sat down to our wedding breakfast afternoon tea, it looked wonderful. As you know I wasn’t sure about the vintage china but when it was all laid out it did look amazing, so I’m now a convert!

We had an amazing time thank you so much the food was really lovely. The food and decor was very in keeping with our vintage theme. You were certainly right that the standard was much higher than anything I have had before at an afternoon tea. Thank you!
