If you’re having a vintage wedding or traditional afternoon tea theme then you’ll love Alice and the teacup who hire vintage crockery and accessories in Kent and Sussex.

We caught up with the proud owner, Clair Hinge who gave us the low down on her business inspiration. She says “I’m always on the look for crockery to add to my collection. When travelling around I simply cannot resist a rummage around a local charity shop or flea market. My mind is ever-bubbling with ways to make use of my pieces.”

When asked what gave her the inspiration for her business, she says “My love affair with china started with a tatty box from the loft that contained a beautiful tea set that once belonged to my beloved late Nanny Cox. My Nan always hankered after the ‘posh’ and took great pride in getting out the expensive china when guests came for tea. Whatever memories I have of Nanny Cox always seem to finish with her sharing a cup of tea and biscuits!”

As well as a beautiful range of vintage crockery, Clair also has for hire linen, glassware, cutlery, vintage furniture pieces and accessories to really give any wedding a fabulous vintage theme. Prices range from £1.50 per cup and saucer to £6.00 for a 3-tier cake stand.

Plus they have a gaggle of ‘tea ladies’ that are available to serve in vintage inspired uniform as well as a washing up service. So you get all of the benefits and none of the hard work. Exactly what you need on your wedding day!
