I'm now taking bookings for china and tableware hire only.

I have been so sorry to hear about the many weddings and celebrations that have been cancelled or postponed but it is great to see that things are slowly getting back to normal.

If you would like to speak to me about hiring vintage china and tableware in Essex, then please email me at to check availability.

Plus, All The Tea & China will be undergoing a bit of a refresh soon so watch this space!

Special Occasions

Celebrate in Vintage Style

Afternoon Tea is a wonderful way to enrich time with friends.  Whether you are looking to host a big celebration, brighten a business meeting or just seeking a fun way to spend time with your girlfriends, All The Tea & China can prepare you a beautiful afternoon tea presented on our elegant vintage china and of course laid out on the finest tablecloths.

Afternoon Tea or High Tea is traditionally taken between 3pm and 5pm and includes delicate crustless sandwiches, scones with cream & jam and sumptuous cakes – especially beautifully decorated cupcakes. 

This is a stylish way to celebrate many different types of occasions, from birthdays, baby showers, hen teas, christenings and other personal milestones.

Corporate Events

A great idea for your company's next lunch or team-building get-together. We can deliver the tableware and catering to your venue or even in the office for a spot of afternoon tea.
