Simply Vintage

The Tea Set Hire Company

Gorgeous vintage tea sets to hire for all your special occasions. 


Welcome to Simply Vintage

We supply elegant vintage china for Afternoon Teas, Weddings, Bridal Showers, Christenings, Baby Showers, Charity Events, Funeral Wakes, Anniversaries, Mother's Day and more! Whatever the event, tea served in vintage china undoubtedly tastes better and turns an English tradition into a memorable occasion. We have a passion for collecting beautiful china and by hiring rather than buying you will get a great themed party without the hassle of searching and storing the china yourselves. Our quintessential teacups, teapots, cake stands and accessories will transform your table into a vintage wonderland!

What We Do


We are a family run business based in Petts Wood near Orpington and hire locally to Chislehurst and Bromley as well as further afield across Kent, Surrey, and South London. We offer a bespoke service to cater for all your tea party needs with an eclectic mix of vintage china and accessories to give your event the elegance of a bygone era.  All our crockery is genuine English china of the highest quality and includes our beautiful gold-plated cutlery as well as a selection of pretty embroidered tablecloths to really enhance your vintage look.  We specialise in offering a vibrant mix and match table.  We feel this looks so much prettier and gives an authentic vintage flavour to your event. Of course if your taste is for a fully matching tea set, we can do this also, just let us know your preference and we are more than happy to accommodate your selection.  You can either choose from one of our specially designed packages or have a look at our individual items page, where you can order china to suit your own specific needs. We also offer a personalised Calligraphy service where we offer bespoke Name Place Cards for your table. In addition, we offer an Afternoon Tea Package for up to 24 people, which includes our traditional menu of delicious finger sandwiches, home-made scones and scrumptious cakes. All delivered alongside our pretty china, so all you need to do is sit back and enjoy your special day with family or friends. 


Please have a look at our beautiful collections and if you have any queries or have your own ideas in mind, please do not hesitate to get in touch and we will do our best to help!

How We Got Our Start...

  I had always had an obsession for everything tea related and this definitely extended to my passion for cake! As a certified 'teapot' myself, it made sense that my venture into business would involve my favourite pastime!  Since then, I have spent many a happy hour scouring the country for pretty vintage cups and saucers and all the gorgeous pieces of china that turn this simple tradition into a special occasion!
