A birthday tea

Although lots of our hires are for large events, weddings, big birthday parties, christenings and retirements – we also love the little events and tea parties that people have to send out a bit of love to their best friends and family.

Vintage Tea for friends in DorsetThe lovely Faye of id organic a new beauty salon now open in Bridport was treated herself not so long ago – to a birthday tea with family friend Gemma. Visiting Sladers Yard at West Bay, the girls enjoyed a vintage tea and cake for two with lots of time to chat and relax.

What Alice Found

What Alice FoundThere are very few vintage traders that we really adore – but when the lovely Nicki from the Cherry Closet told us she was opening a vintage boutique at the edge of Boscombe and it was going to be called “What Alice Found” we knew that this was going to be something REALLY special.

“What Alice Found” has now been open a whole year and is going from strength to strength including the recent introduction of Ikkonik men’s vintage clothing, featured stylings in the Daily Mail, gorgeous vintage windows and interiors, blog-features and loads of fashion shoots together with Nicki and Karen’s nominations and semi-finalist placings for the Langtry Manor Venus Women in Business awards.

We joined them at their busiest ever day – their first birthday party so we could celebrate with them in Mad Hatter style… with Sharon and Gloria from the Vintage Hair Lounge providing their wonderful beehives, victory rolls and magical coiffures plus all of the fabulous vintage clothes it really was a magical day!
