Vintage china teacups and cakestands have made something of a big comeback in recent times, what with our love and adoration for cupcakes and other retro sweet-treats but, for some of us, vintage china never went out of fashion as it is definitely true that a cup of tea tastes best when served in a china cup! It is time to rediscover the joy of an old fashioned tea party.

With pretty chintzy patterns and delicate little handles requiring them to be held elegantly in a dainty little hand, it is no wonder that vintage teacups have become the choice of the modern bride to add a vintage touch to the wedding proceedings. I met one bride-to-be recently who was buying up all the vintage teapots that she could lay her hands on as she was planning an 'Alice in Wonderland' themed wedding!

Tea Party will be exhibiting at our Vintage Bridal Fair on Sunday 13th June with a beautiful selection of vintage china teasets, cakestands, glassware and linens - perfect for creating a vintageously elegant table setting! And why not make your way to the Ani & Lulu's Cupcakery stand to purchase some deliciously decadent frosted cakes to go with your china? (if you can manage not to eat them on the way home!)

Or what about one of these cake stands made from vintage cups and saucers by the very talented Sharon Hay of Innocent Chaos? They also make wonderful jewellery display stands - a great idea for bridesmaid gifts!

The Frock Around The Clock Vintage Bridal Fair will take place on Sunday 13th June at Malone House, Barnett Demesne, Malone Road, Belfast from 12 - 5pm. Admission costs £5 and there will be goodie bags for the first 100 visitors.
