Vida’s Vintage Tea Party

Caterers of beautiful and traditional tea parties, delivered to your door Somerset~ Devon~Dorset


We are a mother/daughter team (Jill and Kate) based in Somerset.
We take great pride in making top notch tasty treats for your vintage tea party, delivered directly to your door in Devon, Dorset and Somerset. We rent out vintage, bone china tea cups, plates and platters in a mix of gorgeous colours and patterns, bringing something extra special to the occasion.
The beauty of our service is that everything is freshly homemade on the morning of your party. We do all the practical tasks including taking away the used crockery to wash up so that you are free to enjoy the event.
Our name was inspired by our much loved Auntie Vida.
