About Tea in the Meadow

Tea in the Meadow Vintage China Hire is based on our farm in Lasham, on the outskirts of Alton in Hampshire.
A few years ago I had the idea that I wanted to offer 'Tea In the Meadow' literally on the farm, throughout the summer months with cream teas galore. As with many ideas, reality is a somewhat different matter. Planning controls, red tape to name a few issues made the idea untenable but I had in the meantime been scouring the country looking for pretty vintage china to use in this venture. I have to say that I really enjoyed every single one of my purchases and over time amassed what only can be described as an embarrassment of riches, hence the idea of letting other folk enjoy my collection.
My sister, who has a wedding flower business
 www.madaboutflowers.biz  recently made wonderful posies in teacups for a marquee wedding at Chawton House. (see image) This is such an alternative use to the vintage china and in the height of summer, it looked stunning.

One day I hope to offer the full works for afternoon tea and hold onto that dream but knowing that my china will playing a starring role in other peoples' events will please me no end.
