Celebrations

Isn’t it lovely to get together with friends and family and celebrate those special times together.  The only thing is deciding where and when.  Not everyone has the space or the time to host a party.  It can be a great thing to all meet at a convenient location with car parking and outside space if the weather is good for the little ones to play.   Everyone can enjoy the day then.  We are situated in a lovely parkland and have swings, slides and park facilities outside the door and indoors have a lovely cosy tearoom that can cater for up to 40 guests.  We would love to cater for your event and can offer you our bespoke catering tailor made to suit all your guests.

Here is a list of what others have enjoyed over the last year but we will happily design your event and offer our home made delicious food catering for all diets and allergies.

We served our delicious afternoon teas, cream teas and some of you enjoyed our speciality festive drinks instead of our lovely tea

If you wish to relax after a busy Christmas shop any Sunday until and including December 21 join us at 2.00 p.m here at The Tearoom within Cliffe Park. Callywhite Lane.  Dronfield S18 2XP

Vintage Wedding – How to create your perfect day

wedding acard

To create the perfect vintage wedding you have to introduce the following into your day.

 Photographs from last weeks Vintage Wedding of Paul Larkins and Jenny Donnelly.

Table Plan

Lots of pretty personalised items that reflect your hobbies or interests

1980-01-06 001 1980-01-06 004

Little hearts filled with tea, gift tagged with guests names on ensuring each person gets the correct place at the table, behind the cup a little favour box filled with a surprise!  Jenny is so creative and with help from friends and family made the divine teabags and favour boxes.

Embroidered table numbers

These table numbers were embroidered by the bride and looked beautiful on our vintage embroidered tablecloths.

We made our own strawberry preserve, jam pot covers and labels to tie in with homespun decorations.

Our strawberry preserves       

Lots of lovely vintage china and accessories are vital for adding that vintage elegance to any celebration.  Vintage china adds that quintessential elegance to your day and we think tea certainly tastes better sipped from delicate china.  Our range of teapots, sugar bowls and milk jugs add to the pleasure and art of taking tea.

Jenny's tea bag crafting

Table linens especially vintage embroidered ones look very special

Our vintage tablecloths     vintage tea party

We have lace, embroidered, retro and plain cloths for all themes.

Here are some hanging out to dry.

linens

Our napkins and cutlery can complete the table setting with lots of mis-matched, but co-ordinating colours we bring the whole look together.  We can supply linen or paper napkins in a variety of colours and fabrics.

Mismatched china

Gold colours       

Next you need to arrange your catering, whether your venue supplies this or you bring in an outside caterer choose your menu to reflect your guests and the season.  An afternoon tea style wedding can save your budget and allow you to create a bespoke menu of your own; if you use a company that can provide the vintage china and all of the catering with service you get a complete service instead of booking several companies to do bits on the day everything will be arranged saving you time, stress and money.

Our bride wanted to introduce buttons into the day as She loves crafting with vintage buttons so we decided to use fondant icing and create little buttons for the teapot biscuits

We baked little biscuits with fondant buttons on as our Bride wanted a button theme.

Wedding Guide part one

Wedding Guide:  Part one tips on the engagement and engagement party 

08You’ve made your decision it’s time to pop the question.  How it’s done is down to the couple themselves, however, we offer our romantic picnics which are a lovely way to create a romantic scene and crack open the bubbly when the answer is Yes!

Announcing the engagement is a huge step in a couple’s life.  Telling the family first, then your best friends, in person, then maybe an engagement announcement card to everyone else.  This often results in a frenzy of everyone you know  wishing to spend some time with you to talk about your future plans this may be a good time to arrange an engagement party.  Getting everyone together to celebrate the forthcoming event will offer you the chance to talk about it to everyone at once, but more importantly,  giving everyone the chance to meet with each other before the wedding.

Often nowadays the bride and groom  come from different parts of the country and so the families have never met before.  It will be so much easier for everyone, if they meet up before the wedding and therefore know who is who!

It is customary for the brides mother to write to the grooms parents to express their happiness at the future marriage.  Details such as locations, dates, numbers of guests, venues, budgets will be a good thing to discuss amongst both families.

The engagement party is a great excuse for a family to get to know each other and friends and family will  want to see the couple in person to show their excitement at their news.  You need to invite the guests to the engagement party who will also be invited to the wedding.  many guests will want to bring an engagement gift and may ask what your wedding list is so try to get together and make a short list, so you can let people know what you would like.

Local department stores usually offer a wedding list service and will add your engagement  details and which gifts you would like to the list.   You may wish to ask people to donate money to a charity for an engagement gift, so look into the details in advance before your guests ask you!

Remember to send out Thank you cards to all your guests for coming to the party and for any gifts you receive.

In our next Wedding guide part two we will talk about finances and planning for the big day

Join our mailing list to add your name to our blog for future post updates

Thank you and hope congratulations are in order !
