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!

Pots and pots of perfection...

Our beautiful vintage teapots are not only great for serving tea from but are also pretty fabulous at doubling up as quirky vases for your flowers!
Have a look at these stunning creations!

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

Flower power...

These pink roses certainly pack a punch! And they look quirky and cool in this beautifully shaped coffee pot.

For a colourful display pick out the accent colour of the pot and choose a flower to match it making everything tie in beautifully. We have so many fabulous teapots and coffee pots that you'll be spoilt for choice!

Or try this for a lovely little centrepiece - perfection in a teacup!

For a fantastically retro splash of colour these vintage milk bottles make brilliant vases, each one providing it's own trip down memory lane!!

 And finally, the traditional glass vase...with a vintage twist. Make a stunning cluster with these cut glass vases, all different shapes and sizes, fill them with the prettiest flowers and look at them sparkle!
