Vintage crockery makes any event absolutely stunning. Our hire service means you get the beautiful look without spending hours searching for beautiful pieces, washing it and of course storing it before and after your party!
Room Forty vintage china is all original and beautiful. We also ensure that the cup, saucer and plate match - which elevates your wedding, christening or birthday even more special. We have around 150 sets available to hire, complete with tea pots, cake stands, bowls, cutlery, jam pots and more. We also have a range of linens to hire to complete the look.
To keep our crockery in perfect condition we wash everything by hand - so you don't need to. Just pack them up for us carefully.
We can also supply beautiful loose leaf teas by Cheshire Tea Company, along with tea strainers and vintage tea timers to make the perfect brew.
If you don't like tea, we know a few cocktails that could tickle your fancy. Think prohibition: feather boas, 1920's/30's glamour....timeless music, fabulous props and lots of laughs!
We have an easy vintage crockery hire package that includes EVERYTHING you need for a party for just £4.50 per person and remember we wash it all up for you too. We can even deliver it, collect it and come and set it all up for you if you wish. Just get in touch for details.
With a cup and saucer available to hire for just £1.25 per person, hiring beautiful crockery is so much easier than scouring charity shops and online auctions, and we guarantee you wont be disapointed when it arrives, spotlessly clean and with no dishwashers in sight the colours and gold guilding remain as bright as the day they were made!
If you're after the works, we have a ready to go package, which includes all the basics for your special vintage afternoon tea*. At just £4.50 per person we include everything that we would bring out for an afternoon tea when we serve it, including:

ALL china and food pictured belongs to Room Forty. We don't use any stock photos, and we don't use a dishwasher, so all our cups remain bright and vibrant.
