Vintage Styling with a Mad Hatter Twist

If you love vintage but with a contemporary feel and a hint of Mad Hatter then our “Mad Hatter Twist” venue styling could be for you. We have combined our beautiful vintage china with very modern chic black and white basics and hand crafted Mad Hatter hat centrepieces to create a very different but elegant look for any party, wedding, anniversary or special occasion.

You can choose the touches of colour you would like and even add your own items to make this a very individual and bespoke look unique to you. Check out our You Tube pictures – we have gone for a very girlie pink for our photo shoot !

We can style any venue with “Mad Hatter Twist”, from hotels to marquees and village halls and for up to 80 people. We can be flexible on table size and shape, number of hat centrepieces and we can also provide your place cards and other items should you wish. If you would like to know more about how this style could work for your event please do contact us.

Many thanks to the lovely Lisa at The Thimble Inn in Piddlehinton for letting us use the gorgeous pub for the photos!

Pot to the Kettle Never Kettle to the Pot!

We’ve shared this wonderful vintage You Tube video before but it’s so much fun we felt we just had to share it all over again – it’s guaranteed to cheer you up when it’s raining constantly and the wind seems to be doing it’s level best to level everything! It’s a gorgeous peice of social history – check out the hair styles, the furniture and the absolutely HUGE teapot – and we completely adore the Tea Instructor – one of the scariest men ever – those eyebrows and he never blinks – never!! We think the 6 steps to making a proper cup of tea should be laid down in law and tea should always be sold in the biggest tea chest you can carry by people with the most glorious 1940’s cut glass accents – it would be so much more fun than trying to find a decent tea at the local supermarket. And please – if you learn nothing else from watching this little video do ALWAYS remember – take the pot to the kettle NEVER the kettle to the pot – Gran would be proud!
