Please browse through our FAQs and Terms below

You may already have pieces you wish to use and just require extra items or a few special pieces, or you may need everything!  Most people prefer to hire just the items they need, but we are happy to provide a full vintage high tea package if preferred.  We can provide everything you need to host a vintage high tea, including teapots, cups, saucers, tea plates, tea cutlery, tea strainers, vases, tiered cake stands, and serving pieces.

Our service is almost entirely mismatched (trios are matched). Due to the amount of vintage china, silver ware, cutlery and crystal we have available, we cannot accommodate individual selection by the hirer.

Please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your requirements, an event date and location and a contact address.  A custom quote will be prepared and emailed to you for review.

HIGH TEA COLOUR CHOICE:  We can provide vintage tea sets in a mix of colours and designs. We can work to a colour theme for small groups subject to availability. We have pinks, blues, greens, yellows, and other lovely florals.

HIRE PERIOD:  Hire is for a three night period at no extra cost, to allow plenty of time for setup and styling and for dismantle at the end of the event.  Clients are most welcome to have their orders on the Friday and return on the Monday, or the day prior to the event and return the day after if a mid-week function.

BOOKINGS:  A 50% deposit is required to secure the booking and the items chosen.  Final numbers are to be advised 7 days prior to the function and the balance is payable 7 days before the event.  Deposits are refundable, less a $50 fee up to 7 days prior to the event.  Cancellations with less than 7 days notice will forfeit deposits.

DELIVERY:  The Whats the Occasion offers delivery/pickup services between Blackheath and Blaxland. Delivery in this range is $60 each way. Alternatively, you are most welcome to pick up and drop off at our Hazelbrook premises at an arranged time, at no cost.

PRIVATE VIEWINGS:   We work from a home based studio in Lawson, A small array of our product for hire is on display at our Antique Store, Hazelbrook Cottage Antiques. As many of our items are out on hire most weekends, viewings are only available by appointment.

MINIMUM HIRE:   No minimum for vintage china and high tea hire, minimum hire is $100 for cake stands and styling hire.

DAMAGES:  Hirers are responsible for any damages incurred whilst the items are in the possession of the hirer or their agent.  A security bond of $200 is required for all orders, however for larger orders, the bond is 50% of the total order.  The security bond is returned in full during the week after the event if no replacements are necessary. Breakages and loss are charged at current replacement cost per item.  Replacement costs will either be deducted from the security bond or invoiced separately.  Payment of deposit indicates your acceptance of these terms.

WASHING UP:  We are happy to have our china returned unwashed, however we are more than happy for you to do so.  All items must be washed by hand and should never be washed in an automatic dishwasher.  Harsh chemicals and very high temperatures will damage antique china and silverware.  We do not charge a washing up fee for orders under $500, however for orders over $500 a washing up fee will apply if you prefer to return them unwashed.

REGIONAL  FUNCTIONS:  We welcome enquiries for events outside of the BlueMountains area.  Due to insurance reasons, we can only hire to professional wedding planners, stylists and event planners for regional weddings and events.

STYLED SHOOTS:  We love styled shoots and working with like minded vendors and creatives.  Send us your ideas and let’s see what we have to fit the brief.

GENERAL:  We cannot accept bookings for children’s parties due to the fragile nature of our vintage fine bone china.
