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!

Travelling Tea Favours!

tea favours vintage dorsetwedding in Portugal

We love it when our customers come to us with interesting ideas for our wedding favours so were delighted when Steph and Pedro asked us to send them some beautiful aqua coloured tea favours for their wedding in Portugal.

Stephanie and Pedro had chosen a beautiful aqua shade to complement their mediterranean theme and they used these cute little boxes and bespoke name tags to finish the look.

We sent the favours to Stephanie’s mum in the UK and they were taken overseas to give as a true taste of Britain.
