One of the great things about the work we do, is some of the other wonderful people (yes I am indirectly calling us wonderful too :) ) we come across in relation to all manner of different occasions. We've been blessed to have worked alongside some great companies; cake decorators, balloon artists, and photographers among them. All talented in their own right, but when we all get together the results of our hard work can be truly inspiring.
That's why today we were happy to give over half our window area to a new local company that specialise in the hiring of Vintage China for all manner of different occasions. I know I have mentioned them once before when they were first getting started (and I'm happy to report that their business is going from strength to strength) so it was so nice to finally have some space available for them to display some of their wares. With everything from cakes stands, to cups and saucers they have a lovely selection of china they are happy for you to hire. Looking at the small selection of their stock we have in the window is making me think of a summer wedding. Sunny days (so I obviously mean summer in a country other than ours) with tea, cakes and sandwiches out on the terrace; inside a marquee decorated with bunting (and lots of flowers of course). Then my mind is taken to a social hall with a gathering of friends for a party, or new year celebration. Aunty Ethels home made chocolate sponge on one of the cake stands; egg and cress sandwiches on one of the lovely plates, with proper tea leaves brewing in one of the lovely tea pots. They truly do have a combination for any occasion.
From coffee mornings with friends, to a full on party with all your family, friends and *others* I believe Yesterday Vintage China have something to offer everyone (they're also a very friendly family run business and understand how the personal touches can make all the difference).
