What our customers are saying

"Feast & Drink Tea" Afternoon Tea Experience

I booked Little Vintage Teacup to supply vintage china & afternoon tea for my 50th birthday Party.  Michelle was so incredibly accommodating when we had to change venue & amend number of guests.  The vintage china was stunning & included all my favourite patterns such as Old Country Roses.  The tablecloths, runners & cutlery holders made the tables look so elegant as did the crystal bud vases & champagne flutes.  The afternoon tea itself was excellent!  We had several dietary requirements but Lizzie dealt with it all so professionally.  Everyone loved it!  Thank you both so much for making it such a memorable occasion for me!  I would highly recommend Little Vintage Teacup without hesitation.   


Wedding Reception

We hired some vintage tea cups, tea & coffee pots and 3 tier cake stands for our wedding.  The crockery was used for gin cocktails and canapes during our reception.  Michelle was a delight to work with, she helped to share photos leading up to our wedding day so we could check the colours would work with our flowers.  Email and phone communication was super easy.

Such a pleasure to work with.

Wedding Reception

Beautiful vintage china, brilliant communication

Michelle was quick to respond to my initial request.  I visited and was amazed at the choice available, everything anyone could ever need for afternoon tea and more!  Michelle helped me to choose and was very patient with my changes of mind.  Items were delivered the day before the wedding , beautifully wrapped and collected the day after.  The whole process was friendly, organised and professional.

I have no hesitation in recommending Little Vintage Teacup to anyone wishing to experience a proper nostalgic afternoon tea, with a modern twist.

Victorian 40th Birthday Party

Stunning tea sets

I hired this company for my 40th birthday celebrations.  I had a Victorian themed fancy dress party planned with an afternoon tea booked.  The china I got was beautiful and really set the 'tone' of the day perfectly.  I had so many compliments throughout the day.  The customer service I received was also wonderful.

Would definitely recommend.

Birthday Party

Little Vintage Teacup provided the most beautiful tea set for afternoon tea for my mums birthday.  All the china was exquisite and curated to the look I was going for.  Michelle was brilliant at coordination and listening to what I needed.  She provided excellent service and advice.  Prompt and considerate communication and easy to pick up and drop off - although there is a delivery service which I didn't use.

I would highly recommend them.

Thank you!

Very very pleased with all aspects of hiring Little Vintage Teacup... from prompt response when using to the refund of breakage deposit.

Lovely lady Michelle talked me through the process.. made suggestions and set me at ease.  Everyone at the party said how beautiful the china was and what a great idea to add that extra special touch to a special occasion.

What a fantastic find for me, Michelle went over and above with the service on my order.  I hired teapots, coffee pots and cake stands, all of them sorted for me with easy assembly instructions.  First class service and beautiful pieces, highly recommended.

Many thanks to Michelle.  She was easy to communicate with, provided exactly the lovely crockery we wanted and was flexible with collection and returns.

Karen Cowley

Charity Event

I approached Little Vintage Teacup about using some of their teacup and side plate sets for the Macmillan Coffee morning I was organising in Sep 2022.  Michelle kindly provided a great selection to support the cancer charity event.  Many of the visitors on the day exclaimed their delight about the extra special treat and who knows, maybe it increased donations!  I was happy to see the packaging Michelle uses is used time and time again because reducing plastic waste is important to me.  Michelle herself is so friendly and great at keeping in contact about arrangements, initially coming back to me while on holiday!
