My passion for all things Vintage began on a visit to Lyme Regis during a stay with my in-laws at their home in Devon. While browsing the array of antique and bric-a-brac shops I came upon a beautiful pair of Vintage
China Teacups and just HAD to have them!
From then on every visit to Devon meant a trip to Lyme so that I could ‘treat myself’ to a set of pretty tea plates, an elegant cake stand, some vintage table linen or a delicate tea cup & saucer…until suddenly I had amassed quite a collection!
Of course all these beautiful things were no good in the cupboard gathering dust so my daughter Hannah and I decided to throw a Vintage Tea Party for our friends in the garden using all of our mismatched vintage finds! The party was a great success and after having several requests for friends Tea Parties we realised that this was something that we could develop as a service for those who want a truly unique party.
And so Splendid Occasions was born! After years spent planning Weddings, Parties and Events it has always been my dream to start my own party planning business and combined with my daughters creative skills as a Window Dresser, I think we make a splendid team!
