If you're looking for a truly original centre piece for your tea party we've created a collection of vintage mixed china cake stands with a quirky twist. These cute three tier cake stands are topped with little bowls for you to fill up with smarties and other colourful sweeties, or flowers or chocolate fingers or lollipops or bread sticks...well anything you fancy really. For a Mad Tea Party you can be as imaginative as you like.
We have a "Regal" tiered cake stand created from Royal Albert and other china plates dating from around the 1920's or thereabouts. The style seems to be a transition from the Art Nouveau movement with the naturalistic flowers and garlands to Art Deco when geometric shapes and patterns were in vogue. We have topped this cake stand with a sugar bowl. Très chic!
The Royal Worcester "Mayfield" sugar bowl and Grosvenor China "Wung Tu" plate were a match made in heaven. Tastefully complemented with a Royal Doulton blue and cream "Albany" cake plate.
For those Alices in Wonderland who require an authentic Mad Tea Party I hope you'll enjoy this pretty gold and pink rose vintage tiered cake stand topped with a mini Sadler teapot.
Add a touch of vintage romance to your tea party with this hand crafted rose scented candle in a vintage "Lavender Lady" cream jug with matching tea plate. When the light starts to fade the light will glow elegantly through the china.
Of course, you can always mix and match your china in a colourway or theme of your choice. We have a collection of beautiful 'ready to party' tea sets available. For a Mad Tea Party it has to be quirky!
Those long lazy summer days will soon be here and what better way to enjoy an afternoon in the sun or a warm evening outdoors than with a tea party? Mix and match gorgeous patterns and beautiful china and serve strawberries and cream in quirky vintage style.
