"I would highly recommend Lily and Rose vintage china hire, which looked wonderful for my son and daughter-in-law's recent wedding tea. The online ordering and communication was friendly and efficient, the delivery and collection flawless. But best of all, family and friends were impressed with the quality, and nostalgically reminisced about pieces they recognized! It all added to the fun of a perfect wedding day!"

Super no fuss service. Lily & Rose supply a lovely range of china to make your afternoon tea

Thank you Lily and Rose. Will recommend to others and use again when needed.

‘Pretty China, so beautiful and made my baby shower. We will definitely be using Lily and Rose again for upcoming events, hopefully a baby christening’


November 2018

Hiring china from Lily and Rose was a very good decision. They were so helpful re organisation, collection, return ,advice (and dealing with the friend’s plate we returned to them by mistake!).

The beautiful china helped to make a wonderful memorable tea party to celebrate my daughter’s engagement. Thank you so much.


September 2018

'Lily and Rose Vintage China hire has been a wonderful experience. From meeting the owners, to the delivery/collection of the china, to the china itself, it has been fantastic. The china supplied, (which was for my sister's bridal shower) was stunning & sturdy and everyone paid such lovely compliments about it. The package deal I paid for (and there were many to choose from!) was such a fair price for the quality of the china, and I would hire from them again in a heartbeat. I live in New Zealand so a lot of my correspondence was via email, and the ladies were great at keeping up the communication; they explained all of the details I wanted to know about hiring from them, and the payment plan, so it was a quick and simple process. I am very grateful for all that they did, and like I said - I would not hesitate in hiring from them again!'


September 2018

Thank you for a fantastic service. You were a joy to deal with from beginning to end and even put up with me turning up at the wrong time to collect the china! The cups and saucers were beautiful and really were a beautiful finishing touch for our afternoon tea party. They were admired by many. My Dad was delighted to find two sets that his Mum used to have many years ago. I would definitely hire from you again in the future.

Dear Lily and Rose,

I would just like to say a big thank you for helping make my daughter’s wedding extra special. It was an over the top steam punk theme, the venue was an old cotton mill and the weather was beautiful. We sat outside after the wedding ceremony in our Victorian outfits, and had the best Mad Hatter’s tea party ever thanks to the beautiful china you provided for us.

The whole business of hiring the china and arranging delivery was effortless. Nothing was too much trouble, even when the timing of delivery and pick up from West Mill was changed. Everything arrived on time and was collected without a hitch. Honestly, what more could you ask for? I really cannot thank you enough for the service you offered on that special day.

Kind regards

Dear Lily & Rose

We have had many compliments on your china and how attractive it all looked when set out on the table and have been asked to supply your contact details by several of our guests which we are more than happy to do. We found the service to be excellent delivery on time which has not always been the case with past suppliers. Therefore removing the worry and stress from the day. We do thank you for that. Also having the china in marked boxes helped enormously when repacking. The china when on the tables was so colourful and positively sparkled. Once again we thank you for your excellent and prompt service and we are more than happy to recommend your company to our friends..

Yours sincerely Barbara and Tony
