Lily and Rose at The Park Farmhouse

Posted on October 31, 2011 at 10:11 AM Comments comments (80)
Lily and Rose had a great time at the Park Farmhouse Wedding Fayre in Castle Donington yesterday.  It's such an amazing venue, really quirky and unique and is the perfect setting for  vintage china! We had a brilliant position in the large barn up on the balcony so the iron railings were festooned with our beautiful shabby chic floral print bunting,  The gilt-edged china was twinkling prettily under the atmospheric lighting. We met some really lovely brides-to-be and their entourages some planning their special day for 2014!  Also connected with some fantastic businesses including Honeysuckle and Castle, Lavish Wedding and Event  Flowers,  and VW Vintage and Vogue Wedding Cars to name but a few!  Now its on to our next big event on Wednesday ...more news about that later!

Lily and Rose are very excited to have a beautiful vintage style wedding reception table set up at The Emporium, a stunning shop at The Courtyard, Draycott, Derbyshire.  Thanks to Helen and Sally (Honeysuckle and Castle) for giving us the opportunity to display our vintage china in such a lovely setting. 

Vintage Garden Party in Beeston

On 21st July, Lily and Rose Vintage China Hire organized a vintage Tea Garden in the grounds of Oban House (home of Broxtowe Voluntry action) in Beeston, Nottingham, to raise funds for Breast CancerCcare and Broxtowe Voluntry Action.  See The Nottingham evening post for more details. The event proved very sucessful, and further fund raising events are planned by popular demand.  We will be at Oban house again on the afternoon of October 14th with a beautiful "pop-up" vintage tea room to mark the AGM of Broxtowe Voluntry Action.  Everyone is welcome!

Autumn and Winter Weddings

Posted on September 26, 2011 at 5:17 AM Comments comments (0)
Are you wondering what to do with your wedding guests after the ceremony and before the reception?? Why not warm them up with a lovely cup of tea, served in beautiful English Vintage China.  Most churches have suitable rooms/halls to set up a  beautiful vintage linen- covered tea table with serried ranks of pretty china teacups and saucers, jostling with milk-filled jugs and sugar bowls with tongs, piles of teaplates and cake-stands filled with delicious cakes and pastries to ward off the autumn chills! It will definitely get them smiling for those all-important photograph opportunities!

Lily and Rose will be exhibiting their wonderful vintage china at the Wedding Fair held on Sunday 9th October from 11-4 at The Holiday Inn, Sandiacre (halfway between Nottingham and Derby so a great venue if you are looking to go to a wedding fair somewhere in the East Midlands with great links to the motorway)

We look forward to seeing you there and helping you to plan a beautiful vintage event...

Vintage Venue Thoughts

Lily was just thinking about some of the venues we have visited which would be absolutely perfect adorned with our vintage table linens and beautiful teapots with bouquets...have a look on our gallery page...just imagine the scene, bunting fluttering in the breeze, stunning tiered cake stands laden with delicious teaparty favourites, an "Alice in Wonderland" eclectic mix of fine bone china teacups, saucers, and teaplates, vintage napkins and pretty milk jugs and sugar bowls filled with sugar lumps ...we loved the marquee at Beeston Fields Golf Club and the lovely countryside surroundings at Ruddington Grange..two lovely venues in the East Midlands....hmmm...just imagine.....

Our lovely old ladies (beautiful cups and saucers) and their companions have enjoyed some typical Vintage English events this last weekend in the Derbyshire countryside and elsewhere.  They are now home and thoroughly washed and repacked ready for their next outing! Lily & Rose have been busy washing up, laundering our lovely vintage linens and making sure everything is spic and span for the next vintage teaparty!
