For the past 25 years we have been enjoying our own garden parties with family and friends. Sometimes with just a small group of intimate friends, and others with over a hundred guests!


Each time we needed to plan our party we trawled through adverts trying to find all of the ingredients to make a fantastic, memorable event. It takes hours to find and research each supplier, hoping that each one turns up on the day and brings their part of your party.


We decided to start a company, based in Lincolnshire which would be able to provide all of the things you need to make a successful party in your own home, a hotel grounds or hired venue. We provide pretty marquees, tables, chairs, crockery, cutlery and glasses for your event as our standard package.


Some of our clients use us to provide a vintage garden party as their wedding reception, and by saving on big company, large marquee hire, they have fun selecting all of the special touches to make their wedding day unique. A typical party tent package for 50 guests including vintage china, bunting, linen and the garden games is still under £1000.


Our prices are simple to understand and include delivery, installation and collection within 25 miles of our base in Spalding. Outside this a price per mile applies, please ask for a quote.

Make it special

Now we've taken care of the basics, we can turn our thoughts to personalising your event.


We can make your tea party something special with vintage mis matched cups and saucers, side plates and cake stands.


Paper Landscape

We are a small, family business and we like it that way. Our diary has around 20 major clients in each year, plus half a dozen promotional events and another 100 or so smaller hires. This way we can give each client a personal experience and our full attention.


We love what we do, and so do our clients. We like to think that we've collected all of the things you need to make your garden party a unique success. If we haven't been able to source just the right thing, we've made them ourselves.


Although we are a small business, we have a rosta of people who help us deliver your hire items, set them up if required and make sure they are all collected without any fuss. It is our policy not to over commit. In fact, we will only take one major booking for each weekend so that you can be sure of our undivided attention.


We hope you like what you see here, but if there's something that you'd like, and it's not on this website - give us a call anyway. Everything available here is because someone asked us for it and we love new ideas.


Go ahead, plan your party with confidence and style, we'll be there to help you make it happen.
