Pricing Structure

We normally hire on a 3-day basis, which allows for one day on either side of your event.  All our tea sets are simply packed for ease of set-up and re-packing.  All we ask is that you scrape the plates and re-pack the china and glass in the packaging supplied. Please rinse any vintage cutlery to avoid tarnish, then leave the washing up to us. 

Our sample pricing table indicates the cost of  standard packages and individual hire prices are also listed below.   Please contact us to discuss specific requirements. 

For completeness and transparency purposes we include reference in the Terms and Conditions to the initial 40% booking deposit and the 50% breakage deposit (minimum £30).


Please do read our full Terms and Conditions, where you will see that the 50% breakage deposit and the residual 60% hire cost, are both payable 7 days prior to your event.  The breakage deposit will be refunded via bank transfer when all items are returned in-tact, normally within 2 working days.
