My Story

Hi… I’m Nicky!

I am based in Cambridgeshire and my love of vintage china and tea parties has been an intrinsic part of me for years, during which time I have collected some beautifully ornate, gilded pieces for my own collection and private events, but am now ready to share my collection with a brand new hire service.

For me, choosing which sets and colours to choose for guests at a tea party is like being a child in a candy shop, and there is of course nothing quite as exquisite as sipping tea the way it should be done – out of vintage bone china teacups!

And teacups are just the beginning of course – beautiful teapots, milk jugs, sugar bowls, cake stands and plates, ornate serving accessories and gorgeous display trays are what makes for a truly luxury high tea experience. So, whatever your occasion, I hope that you can take as much pleasure out of these beauties as I have!

“I am fascinated by the workmanship and history of the collections and try to imagine their journeys through royal, lavish and quintessentially British events throughout history.”

“Why not let others have some enjoyment from it too?

At first, my collection was used for my own little tea parties for relatives and friends, but when it started to expand I thought to myself, ‘why not let others have some enjoyment from it too?’ So I started adding other gems to it, such as ornate trays for display, gorgeous serve ware, lace tablecloths and suchlike.

From my gallery on this site and the associated social media accounts, you will get a taster of what’s on offer and hopefully a bit of inspiration!
