...and eat it off our stunning vintage crockery! Honestly it will taste better! Not that these fabulous cakes by Zoe Clark at The Cake Parlour need any help whatsoever in the taste or looks department!

Storm in a teacup...

Well, Eton Mess in a teacup! But apparently it went down a storm according our lovely friends at the fabulous London catering company, Top Hat .

Eclectic avenue...

We were recently involved in a fantastic photoshoot collaboration with luxury wedding planners White Avenue and florist extraordinaire Karen Tran. Every detail was meticulously planned, from the dress to the flowers, and the cupcakes to...of course...the crockery!
Shot at London's majestic Dorchester Hotel, the photos tell the perfect vintage wedding story. Here's a sneak peek. Enjoy!

All is not lost...

We love our crockery. And we get very sad when some of it comes home broken! However, all is not lost as we've thought of a clever way of using our chipped or cracked pieces that have to come off the "for hire" list!

Beautiful and spring-like aren't they?
So, if you do hire our lovely crockery please try and be super careful with it but if you do have a little accident - we will forgive you and then we'll pop it in our garden and make a very pretty vintage flower display!
All broken and unbroken crockery is from www.thecrockerycupboard.co.uk
