The Vintage Tea Service has a number of wedding breakfast packages, with or without the catering element. The first package that I want to tell you about is the Crystal Package, this package is aimed at couples who want to have a buffet style reception. The Silk Package is the most popular form of set-up, a round table with up to 10 guests per table, with three 3 tier cake stands on the table and the other accompaniments. The starting price is £5.00 per head. Some couples would prefer to have every two guests sharing a 3 tier cake stand, so I’ve created a package based on this for a round table of up to 10 guests. The starting price for the Silk Plus package is £7.00. LONG TABLES: there are two packages, the Coral and the Coral Plus. The Coral package is with 4 guests sharing a three tier cake stand, the Coral Plus, two guests per 3 tier cake stand. The starting price for the Coral at £5.00 and the Coral Plus £6.50 per guest. What's the standard china included in the packages? · Teacups, saucers and tea plates · Three tier cake stands · Teapots · Cake plates · Clotted Cream & Jam Dish (plus a spoon for each dish) · Cream Jug, Sugar Bowl (plus sugar tongs) · Cutlery package for each guest: cake fork, starter knife, teaspoon – All silver plated or would you prefer your guests to have a tea knife. China and Catering Packages There a four china and catering packages available, the Lace, Pearl, Sapphire and Diamond, with prices starting at £22.50 per person, up to £34.00 per person. To provide a guide on the 4 menus, the Lace package is very much a traditional Afternoon Tea. The final package is the Diamond, this includes canapés to be served with your arrival drinks. Guests enjoy an Afternoon Tea of finger sandwiches, a range of savouries to include mini quiche and sausage rolls. Your guests will then have a fruit or plain scone with clotted cream, jam and strawberries, followed by delicious cake
