About Eclectic Bliss Vintage China Hire

Pretty tea plates for hire as part of our vintage china hire collection

Q. What events do you cater for?
A. Practically anything! Weddings, Christenings, 'Pop up tea parties', birthdays, garden parties, corporate and charity events, product launches, photo shoots, picnics and anything else that you can think of!

Q. We have collected a lot of china for our own wedding, but we're running out of time/money can you help us to supply the rest?

A. Of course! We know there are a lot of people who love to collect special pieces for their big day to create the shabby chic wedding style, but it takes time and can be VERY expensive. Hiring saves you the hassle of handling delicate fine bone china and of course it is a lot cheaper than sale prices. Get in touch with us, and we can discuss what we can do to help.

Q. Are you able to deliver and collect from our event?
A. Yes. Delivery and collection are free within 10 miles, however we have to charge a fee of 50p per mile for outside of this radius. You are very welcome to arrange collection and drop-off yourselves if this is more convenient or it saves you some pennies (we know how expensive weddings can be!). We can deliver to Somerset, Dorset, Devon, Wiltshire, Cornwall, London, the Cotswolds and further afield by arrangement. Please contact us for an individual delivery/collection fee.

Q. We love the style from your website, can we use you to organise other elements of our day?
A. We'd love to get involved! We offer a styling service to take away all the worry of coordinating with florists, caterers and venues, as well as tying in to your particular theme. We also offer a fabulous floristry service. Click
here for styling and here for flowers.

Q. Can you do our flowers for us as well?
A. Yes. Whilst we don't hold a formal floristry qualification we have a lot of experience in creating beautiful rustic flower arrangments and button holes/corsages - just take a look at here to see what we could achieve for you. Of course we are MUCH CHEAPER than normal florists, so get in touch and let us know what you are looking for. We can offer you arrangements that look incredible at affordable prices.

Q. Do your vintage tea sets match?
A. Unlike most of our competitors we offer, as standard, a matching cup, saucer and tea plate per person - what is known as a trio. The trios will be mismatched throughout your order, but we think that a place setting looks fantastic as a matching set. Of course if you'd like all items to be mismatched then this is easily achieved!

Q. Do you hire other things apart from vintage china?
A. Of course! We have a huge range of all things vintage, from bird cages to bunting and tea cup candles to water pitchers. If we don't have it then we will almost certainly be able to find it for you through our excellent network of vintage suppliers.

Q. Do you have a minimum order hire?

A. No, you can borrow as much or as little as you need!

Q. How much does it cost to hire?
A. We cater for all budgets and our china starts from just 50p! We have set packages for larger events or we can give you a very competitive bespoke quote based on your exact needs, just give us a call! For an idea of our packages please click

Q. Who is responsible for cleaning the crockery?
A. As a lot of our items are quite old, we ask that all items are hand washed, to preserve the gilt and appearance. We will ensure it arrives in pristine condition for your event, all we ask is that it comes back the same! The good news is that washing up is free for all orders over 300, with a small fee applicable for smaller events.

. I love the items you show in the photographs but I can't find what I'm looking for - do you have it?
A. We have so much stock we can't put it all on show! Get in touch with us and we'll see if we have what you need and if we don't, you can be sure we'll know where to find it.

Q. What happens if any items get lost or damaged?
A. We will ask for a damage deposit prior to the event to cover any damage or breakages. Any items not returned in the condition that they were delivered would be charged at four times the hire price for that particular item. Don't worry we only ever get the odd breakage!

Q. Are you able to help us with designing and styling our event?
A. Definitely. We have a lot of experience in helping people create the atmosphere they are looking for. We take a lot of pride in making sure that your special day 'looks and feels' exactly as you dreamed. We can have as much or as little input as you would like!

Q. How long can we hire the items for?
A. The standard hire period is 72 hours, however please contact us if you would like to hire for a longer period and we will try and be flexible to suit your needs.

These are some of our more frequently asked questions. If you have a query which isn't answered here, please do send us an e-mail, pick up the phone or complete our enquiry form which can be found on the Contact Us page.
