Our vintage china hire service includes packaging, delivery and collection to your venue. Due to the delicate nature of the items, please do not wash or clean any of the items after use, as we will do this ourselves upon their return. All we ask is that you empty out any liquids and gently remove any crumbs. Items must NOT be put in the oven, dish washer or microwave. You can relax and enjoy your event, knowing we will care for all washing up.
As our items are vintage, they may show some slight wear & tear on patterns & gilding, but we take great care to ensure that all items hired will not be chipped or cracked.
