Hiring china from Lily and Rose was a very good decision. They were so helpful re organisation, collection, return ,advice (and dealing with the
friend’s plate we returned to them by mistake!).
The beautiful china helped to make a wonderful memorable tea party
to celebrate my daughter’s engagement. Thank you so much.
'Lily and Rose Vintage China hire has been a wonderful
experience. From meeting the owners, to the delivery/collection of the
china, to the china itself, it has been fantastic. The china supplied,
(which was for my sister's bridal shower) was stunning & sturdy and
everyone paid such lovely compliments about it. The package deal I paid
for (and there were many to choose from!) was such a fair price for the quality
of the china, and I would hire from them again in a heartbeat. I live in
New Zealand so a lot of my correspondence was via email, and the ladies were
great at keeping up the communication; they explained all of the details I
wanted to know about hiring from them, and the payment plan, so it was a quick
and simple process. I am very grateful for all that they did, and like I
said - I would not hesitate in hiring from them again!'
you for a fantastic service. You were a joy to deal with from beginning to end
and even put up with me turning up at the wrong time to collect the china! The
cups and saucers were beautiful and really were a beautiful finishing touch for
our afternoon tea party. They were admired by many. My Dad was delighted to
find two sets that his Mum used to have many years ago. I would definitely hire
from you again in the future.
Lily & Rose and their team were a fantastic addition to our
wedding. They made is so easy to enjoy the day and the vintage china was fantastic. We
had so may compliments from family and friends that made it such a unique and

the tone for the day. Many thanks for helping us out at such short
notice and being so flexible.
When setting up our barn venue the day before, my son and fiancée
opened up the china and their faces lit up! They hadn't known it would
be so good. It was perfect for their fantasy Mad Hatter's tea party

and in the delivery and collection of the beautiful china.

Dear Lily and Rose,
I would just like to say a big thank you
for helping make my daughter’s wedding extra special. It was an over the
top steam punk theme, the venue was an old cotton mill and the weather
was beautiful. We sat outside after the wedding ceremony in our
Victorian outfits, and had the best Mad Hatter’s tea party ever thanks
to the beautiful china you provided for us.
The whole business
of hiring the china and arranging delivery was effortless. Nothing was
too much trouble, even when the timing of delivery and pick up from West
Mill was changed. Everything arrived on time and was collected without a
hitch. Honestly, what more could you ask for? I really cannot thank you
enough for the service you offered on that special day.
Lily and Rose was a fantastic company to hire from. The china is
stunning and looked amazing for my wedding. Communication from the team
was brilliant, always emailing back quick and happy to answer any

great success and the beautiful china really set the tone for the whole
occasion and made the day really special. It was quite a talking point
too with everyone identifying their favorite designs, and lots of
