Picnics, weddings & tea

vintage teapot spoutsIts been a very interesting week at Vintage Dorset. We’ve been really busy with lots of wedding confirmations for vintage crockery hire, teapots, cake stands and tablecloths (including working with some excellent local wedding planners and caterers that we hadn’t met before) Hello to our new friends Dean at Sharp Events and Anna at Nordons Events

We’ve also had our first flurry of picnic enquiries for the year – including our very first international picnic order!

Gift CardOk, so we’re not going to send the picnic all the way to America – but we were most delighted to help a lovely lady who wanted to treat her Dorset friends from oversees! We simply provided a gift card and picnic choices and will deliver the picnic to her friends on the day they choose.

If you want to give a vintage tea party or a vintage picnic as a treat, for a birthday, a fun day out or for Mother’s Day then get in touch with us HERE.

As if all this wasn’t enough we’ve also been talking with two Dorchester firms who really are experts in all things tea…

Char Chars and the Guilded Tea Pot are two different tea-focused businesses based in the centre of Dorchester – they both offer an exceptional tea-drinkers experience worth trying!

Char Chars tea house provides a beautiful environment for tea drinking with excellent fine teas and cakes for sale in their South Street shop. The upstairs tea room is very beautifully decorated and is great for meetings as well as getting together for tea, small parties and celebrations. They also sell a range of loose leaf teas so you can take home a sample of whichever tea you’ve just tried – and Sonja and Phil’s expert tea tastings in the Autumn are just the ticket to get experimenting!

The Gilded Teapot is a new fine tea & coffee merchants which stocks over 100 different tea blends along with teapots cafetiere’s and other essential tea accessories. Jo is very knowledgeable about teas and has a huge range of exciting accoutrements for tea lovers! We love these glass pots which are great for green teas and herbal flowery types.
