I just wanted to pass on a big thank you for yesterday’s event.  The set up was fabulous and I had countless comments on how beautiful the china was and how polite and professional you and your staff members were.  It really took a lot of stress out of the day for us having you there and I really appreciated your expert advice.

I will certainly be recommending Antiquitea in the future and will be sure to send through plenty of photos from the event (and put them on Facebook).

I’m sure Sarah and Michael will be in touch when they return from their honeymoon, but I couldn’t wait to thank you personally for your support and ideas leading up to their wedding day.  It was very reassuring to have somebody with your experience to bounce ideas off and to feel confident that the picture we had was a realistic and workable one.  Having you there on the day to ensure everything was taken care of professionally and calmly was an absolute God send and enabled me to really relax and enjoy this very important event.  Thanks to you, there was no time throughout this process that I felt we were out of our depth.  Your attention-to-detail and the extra touches you put in place were also very much appreciated.

So many people have gone out of their way to let us know how much they enjoyed themselves and how nice it was to do something different.  I have passed your details on to several engaged couples.

We are finally starting to come back down to earth after the fabulous day we had yesterday.  You and Bev played a huge part in making everything wonderful and I am very grateful to you.

When you start out planning something like this it is always with much anticipation and a little trepidation at how the grand design in your head will turn out in reality.  However, I needn’t have worried, we were definitely in the hands of professionals and, as I said yesterday, the afternoon far surpassed my expectations.  Everyone who attended LOVED the ceremony of high tea.  From the beautiful tea sets and cutlery, the gorgeous serving plates and tiered cake stands, to the lovely high tea treats.  The flowers were exquisite and the games were lots of fun.  We will be talking about it for years to come and I know that we have given my mother one of the most precious gifts possible:  the most wonderful memory of happy hours spent with her nearest and dearest.

A lot goes into getting an event like this right and you were a big part of that.  I had lots of ideas of what I wanted to occur on the day and you were so kind in guiding me through the essential elements of a high tea.  I was pleasantly surprised each time I asked you if something would be possible and your response was always ‘Of course we can do that’.  You gave me so much confidence in what I was trying to achieve and it was such a refreshing change to deal with someone who is so completely committed to the satisfaction of their customer.  I loved it and thank you for it.

You know, I was a little nervous when I first decided to have a high tea.  I knew it was what I wanted to have, but I was concerned that some of the male attendees would not enjoy the experience.  I have to say, I shouldn’t have worried, because every single person in that room thoroughly enjoyed themselves.  I have a picture which I think is rather cute of two ‘macho men’ enjoying their tea.  It’s great!

So what else can I say but thank you, thank you, thank you, for helping to make my mother’s 80th birthday a wonderful day that will always be remembered by all who were there.

Rina, Bassendean

 

 

Well, I still can’t wipe the smile off my face!  I had the best birthday ever!!  (Gee I sound like a 10 year old, not a 50 year old!)

There is nothing like sipping tea from pretty china cups, surrounded by your best girlfriends all wearing beautiful dresses, the fresh sweet perfume of flowers, sounds of fun and laughter in the background and, of course, gorgeous dainty delectable food.  Just perfect!

The memory of that day will last FOREVER.. Thank you soooo much for bringing it altogether like a well-orchestrated piece of music!  Every detail of the planning pinnacled to that amazing afternoon tea.  Bravo Fiona, Bravo!  You received countless standing ovations by way of emails, phone calls and sms’s!

You are definitely the Queen of High Teas!  .. and you definitely have the most gorgeous vintage china!

Some of my friends have forwarded photos which they took themselves… just amazing, your china is ssoooooo beautiful Fiona.  if you ever need an extra hand washing up, I will gladly help!

Thanks again Fiona, you are the BEST!

LJG_room1Lisa’s 50th Birthday High Tea

 

I just wanted to thank you so much for everything you did on Saturday to make my 70th birthday celebration a big success.  Nickila and I were so impressed with your efficiency and attention to detail, no doubt you will go from strength to strength.  Congratulations on bringing back the graciousness and sophistication of a past era that I thought was lost in a world that has gone mad.  I knew as soon as you walked through the door, looking so much the part, that we were in good hands.

Looking back, Nickila said “I wish we could do it all again” as she enjoyed doing the food, which she also did with so much love and detail.  Between the two of you, we all had a wonderful afternoon and so thank you once again.

Rosemary, Cottesloe

 

Rosemary’s 70th Birthday High Tea

 

I would like to thank you ALL for the truly wonderful high tea you put together for my Mum’s 70th birthday.  It was an amazing afternoon.. a time to treasure and remember for ever!

Your professionalism and attention to detail made the very special afternoon run ever so smoothly.  So many of our guests wanted to know all about you, many saying this is the best high tea they’ve been to in a long time.  My special thanks to you, Fiona, for your wonderful, caring and passionate attitude; this is truly a business you can certainly be extremely proud of.

I will send you a few photos later in the week when I have a chance to go through them all.  Many, many thanks again Fiona.  I hope our paths cross again in the near future.  I wish you and your girls the very best always.

Ali, Daglish

 

Thank you Fiona, for helping to create such a special afternoon for my Grandmother’s 90th birthday.  From the minute you arrived, I felt relaxed and could enjoy this time with my family.  It was everything we imagined, beautifully presented, amazing service and who can go past those delish scones!  Then when you left, apart from the wonderful memories of the day, it was like we had never had a celebration, my kitchen was spotless!  Now just to find an excuse to host another high tea.. thank you.

Margot, Victoria Park

 

Firstly, I would like to say THANK YOU SO MUCH for making Sue’s birthday such a memorable occasion for Sue, and for everyone who attended.  Your professionalism made the whole process from our initial discussions to the final product, go so seamlessly – and for me it was just so easy.

The event that you and Kelley delivered on the day, exceeded all expectations and everyone who was there was blown away with the beautiful presentation of the china, the silverware, the food, the flowers and the service, during the whole afternoon

It was a celebration which will be remembered for a long time to come, and we thank you for making it so.  We have been singing your praises at every opportunity since Saturday and also those of Kelley from the catering aspect.  Hopefully some work may flow through to you both, as word of mouth is always the best advertising!

David, Leeming

 Kerr1Sue’s 60th Birthday High Tea

 

I recently treated my Mum to one of your at-home high tea services for her birthday.  Thank you doesn’t begin to describe our appreciation for your incredible service and for the memories it facilitated.  We felt like queens and were overwhelmed with every little detail that you thought of to create an entire, decadent and luxurious experience.  We can highly recommend your services to anyone wanting to treat themselves or a loved one with an unforgettable dining experience.

Tali, Twigged Flowers

 

I continue to have friends commenting on their wonderful high tea experience on Saturday.. albeit very hot!!  Many of the men made special comment on how they had no idea of what to expect and really enjoyed the afternoon.

Thank you again for a wonderful 60th birthday.  As you had told me, I did not have to think about anything once you arrived.  The WOW factor was really powerful when I opened the doors.. just as I had hoped.  I must thank you for your attention to guests drinks and general needs.  You and Emma did a fabulous job.

I have not been to a high tea before myself but many of my friends would like you to pass on to your caterer their compliments about the quality of the food.  It was top quality and better than many high tea venues, I thought it was lovely food but had nothing to compare it to.

May I compliment you on your professionalism and manner in which you conduct yourself once you start working.  You have a lovely manner and yet ooze a confidence that communicates that you have everything in hand.  Your attention to detail is evident in the perfection of the table settings.  From the moment I met you I felt reassured that my birthday would be successful.. and it was.

My best wishes and I am sure you will get much follow up business.

Vicki, Floreat

Moir2Vicki’s High Tea

 

The kitchen tea went really well and all of the guests were blown away by how beautiful and stunning all of the tea sets and individual pieces were.  Everything looked really amazing – it was perfect and the exact touch we were hoping for.  Your team member was also fantastic – she new exactly what to do, was able to work around the chaos of everything else going on around her with the party set up – we really appreciated her professionalism and approach.

Tania, Bayswater

 

On behalf of Mum and I, we would like to thank you for the outstanding job you did with my kitchen tea yesterday.  Every detail exceeded our expectations:  the decor, the set-up, the food and the service.  Your attention-to-detail is amazing and the china is also just amazing!

Charlotte and yourself did a spectacular job at making sure our guests always had a full glass of champagne and the tea that was served was just superb!  Everyone left raving about the afternoon and it couldn’t have been any more perfect!  Thank you so much!

Melissa and Maureen Tranchita

Thank you for all your assistance.  So many people at the wedding were so charmed by the china and wanted to know how to contact you!  I can imagine you will be receiving more than a couple of calls..

Susan, Peppermint Grove

 

This is just a quick note to thank you for the superb high tea event you created for Zara and Brendon’s engagement party last Sunday.  We were all thrilled with the impact it created and our families and friends were left feeling really special as a result of being surrounded by the timeless elegance of an Antiquitea table.

On a personal note, I want to express my thanks for your calm, professional problem-solving as we worked out the details together.  You instilled in me confidence that our event would be exactly as we envisioned and on the day it was perfect!  Even the big, burly blokes enjoying their tea from dainty china worked!

Fiona, I have worked with many small business owners during my professional life – and have been a business owner myself.  I can say with sincerity you have created a business you can be very proud of.  You are clearly both an expert in your field and an excellent business owner and it has been a pleasure to work with you for Zara’s special day.

Matt and I wanted to say a huge, massive thank you to you for all your hard work at our wedding reception on Saturday and the days leading up to it!  We really could not have had the perfect day that we did without you!  Everyone there commented on how professional and lovely you and your staff are and, of course, how amazing the set-up looked.  Your vintage china, the table settings from Heart Strings & Pretty Things, the flowers, drinks station, lawn games, and the food from Chica Catering all looked so pretty and sophisticated – which is exactly the vibe we wanted on our wedding day.  So many of our guests were delighted with how different and vintage our day was and we have you to thank for that!

From our initial meeting last year, I knew we were in good hands and most, if not all, of the vendors we have dealt with during our wedding planning journey were quick to tell us how lovely, friendly and helpful you are.  Thank you for your prompt replies to all my emails leading up to the big day, your tips and ideas really helped us to have the best day possible.  Also, despite the last minute change of plan with the set-up on the day due to the weather forecast, I actually think it was more intimate and special under cover, plus it gave our family and friends plenty of space for games and dancing on the grass when the rain passed!

Again, a heartfelt thank you Fiona from Matt, myself and our parents for making our wedding day the huge success it was!

A huge thanks to you and your team for helping to make my 60th birthday celebration absolutely unforgettable.  I was a little anxious about the al fresco arrangement but I needn’t have worried as the weather was perfect as was your service.  The table setting looked indescribably beautiful and all my guests commented on what a wonderful job you did in being attentive but never intrusive.  I was able to sit back, relax and thoroughly enjoy my party knowing that we were in your capable and professional hands.  I truly didn’t want the day to end as we enjoyed the high tea so much.

Thank you so very much for making my Mum’s special day so easy and such a pleasure.  Everything looked so lovely and the impression I have received is everyone enjoyed the day and the food.  I must say, your presence made the entire occasion even more charming and special and everyone thought you were absolutely lovely.  So an extra special thank you from me for making the day that much more special.

Just wanted to give some feedback regarding my function on 24th February… Maddi was absolutely brilliant, she set the seated high tea up perfectly.  I was so impressed and thrilled with her efforts.  A big thank you to you also for all your question answering, etc – you were always so patient and helpful.  It has been a fantastic experience dealing with your business and I will certainly be shouting your name from the roof tops!

It was all so beautiful, I couldn’t have been happier with everything.  Thank you!

Michelle, Attadale

 

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for my 40th Birthday High Tea yesterday.  It was just amazing and everyone was very impressed with both the settings and your staff.  The girls looked fantastic, and I did have several people joke about stealing their settings!  Please thank the ladies for me.. the day was just as I’d pictured it – absolutely perfect!  Thanks again for providing such a wonderful service.

Veronica, (event held at WA Rowing Club, Perth)

 

I would like to say thank you to yourself and Catherine for such an amazing afternoon on Sunday.

The tables looked absolutely beautiful and the service you both provided was above and beyond anything I could have imagined.  I have received many compliments and comments since the event which I feel I should also pass on to you!

Thank you once again for always answering my millions of questions in such a prompt manner and also in such a way that made everything easy, also for making do with the makeshift kitchen on the day!

I hope we get an opportunity to work together again.

We are so grateful that we found Antiquitea to provide the reception for our wedding.  The high tea was perfect, from the pre-event set-up to the beautiful china, the food (via Chica Catering) and the professional service on the day.  We got lots of positive comments from the guests and have some gorgeous photos of the set-up too.  Everything was done beautifully and it made the day so much easier to have the reception organised from start to finish on our behalf.

We are also very grateful for your assistance Fiona in the lead up to the day, with every aspect thought through in advance and no request being too much trouble.  You provide a fantastic service and we would definitely use Antiquitea again if we have need for another high tea event.  Thank you!

Karina (wedding held at Araluen Botanic Park, Roleystone)

 

A very belated thank you for your help for Mum’s 90th Birthday function.  It looked amazing and went really well.  Everyone was in awe of the room and attention to detail.  I have received so many beautiful ‘thank-you’ letters and calls.  They loved the trip down ‘memory lane’ and one person felt they were in a scene from Downton Abbey!  It was a very special day for my Mum and it couldn’t have been more perfect.  The pink gift bags were the final icing on the cake as they all left.  Hotel Rendezvous were very easy to work with and very accommodating of your beautiful china.  The commented on ‘never having seen the room look so beautiful’.  Once again a very special thank you.

Jenny, Osborne Park

 

Please accept my sincere thanks for the wonderful service you offered at our wedding.  My friend from Canberra thought it was the BEST high tea she has ever attended (and she is a top barrister and President of the Law Society, so I imagine has been to quite a few)!

We had so many lovely compliments on the beautiful crockery and the seamless service… so good job!

Trenna (wedding held at Wolfe Lane Bar, Perth)

 

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to your and your staff for our lovely wedding reception on Sunday.  Everything was perfect and your staff were amazing!!  I have had so many people asking me about you.  Everything was set out so beautifully and the food was awesome (so thanks to Chica also).  Many thanks for all your help over the past few months in answering all my questions and all the organisation you did.  It was definitely the day we had planned.

Karen and Adam, Woodvale

 

An enormous thank you for all your help with our school reunion High Tea.  The guests were thrilled and the letters of thanks for a wonderful afternoon are still streaming in.  Thanks to your beautiful china and amazing attention to the detail, our rather plain surroundings were transformed into a classic English tea room.  Can I also say how patient and helpful you were with us throughout the planning stages as our numbers grew and our plans changed day by day.  The end result was a triumph and one our former students will be talking about for years to come.

Linzey Allinson (Community Relations Manager, St Mary’s Anglican Girls’ School)

 

I am writing to thank you for your incredible efforts in helping to make yesterday’s 6PR High Tea at Government House such a wonderful success.  I am certain that everyone left feeling special and it was a great way to publicly launch Heritage Perth Heritage Days 2010.  Once again, THANK YOU!

Gina (Gina Church Promotions & Events)

 

Once again thank you so much for the lovely high tea you did for Brooke.  She was overwhelmed and every person in attendance on the beauty and elegance of the set up and the service, etc.  Everything was just perfect and Tamara and I have you and Catherine to thank for that.  Thank you so much.

Trish, Hillarys

Thankyou so much for creating such an amazing wedding for us!!  I got so many compliments on the vintage high tea – and about what a great idea it was instead of a formal sit-down 3 course meal!  It was just perfect, the reception was soo amazing and wonderful.. so pretty and gorgeous.  I feel so blessed to have had everything run so smoothly.

After you set-up the day before the wedding, we also had many compliments from people at the golf club and your name was given out to others who were also interested in organising a high tea!  It’s been lovely working with you, and I’m recommending you to all my friends and family as they were all asking where all the gorgeous crockery came from!

Thankyou again for helping me to organise our dream wedding, it was just how Dan and I had imagined everything.. it was just gorgeous and suited the venue perfectly.

Mavis, Mt Lawley

 

I want to thank you so much for my birthday high tea.  We all had an amazing time and it was exactly what I wanted for my party.  I can’t thank you enough for all your support and help with organising the event.  Stephanie was fantastic and everything ran really smoothly without any hitches.

The most important thing for me was that I was able to kick back and enjoy the event without any worries or anything to organise.  Dad has said that if we have any other events to organise, then we will be using you.  A lot of my friends have also asked for your details so that they can use you for events they are having, so it was a great success.

Thanks again.

Alison, Canning Vale

 

It was a truly amazing day!  The support we received was overwhelming.  So many people asked about the tea settings, so there may be some future bookings.  The room looked so pretty once it was all set up, what a perfect venue the Fremantle Town Hall is for a high tea!  We didn’t want the afternoon to end.  We, along with our guests, were having such a wonderful time.  Thanks again Fiona for all your help.  It was a pleasure dealing with you.  We hope you’ll be a PKSFA supporter for many years to come.

My High Tea Birthday Party was just superb!

Everything went very well indeed.  Sooo impressed with the presentation and food was superb too.  Everybody very happy indeed.  Bev was wonderful – very prompt and very efficient Fiona.  Have many business cards – have already given out many.

I will ALWAYS recommend you Fiona – well done !

Jennifer, Salter Point

 

I just wanted to write to you to say thank you so very much for the beautiful high tea you put on for Rina’s birthday yesterday.  Everyone was so impressed with how beautiful the tables looked with all the exquisite crockery and tableware.  You and the ladies did a wonderful and very professional job.  The flowers were so stunning, Sue and her Mum were overwhelmed with how beautiful their back yard looked!

The food was so delicious, I couldn’t have asked for a better selection and plenty to eat.  Most of all was that Rina was very overwhelmed and surprised and she had the most enjoyable afternoon and felt very spoilt.  I told her she so deserved it and it showed how much she is loved by all her friends and family.

It is always a pleasure working with you Fiona, you made it so easy so thanks once again.

Hope to see you all at another function in the near future.

Adriana, Bassendean

Thank you Fiona.  I had the best party ever!  I loved the invitations.. I think everyone knew they were in for something special when they received one of those! 

Maddy was really amazing, efficient and a delightful person.  The clean up was quickly done and we could party on in the cool outside! 

The table looked absolutely wonderful and everyone had a great time.  The games went down well and the pearls of wisdom, which they all read out, were especially a hit.  You have a winning system here, I will be very surprised if you don’t get some more bookings from this one!  Sometimes the old-fashioned way is the nicest!

Kaye, Wembley Downs

 

Thank you so very much for making my high tea everything that I wanted.  Emma was lovely.  She was super-efficient and her attention to detail was fantastic.  She was even thoughtful enough to ask my daughter how her netball game went when she returned to pack up!  We all had a fabulous time and all of my guests were blown away with how pretty the table looked.  It was the perfect end to my 40th birthday celebrations.  I have even started a collection of Royal Albert china since!

Once again, many thanks and I hope I have the pleasure of experiencing your high tea touch again.

Claire, Booragoon

 

Thank you so very much for helping to make Elizabeth’s 21st birthday celebrations a success.  It was just how we hoped it would be and it was certainly enhanced by your beautiful tea sets and your wonderfully hard work on the day.

Suzanne, Mosman Park

 

Thank you so much for your excellent service on Sunday at our baby shower.  The room looked beautiful and elegant and you were so professional.  I was extremely happy with the high tea experience and I would happily recommend you to everyone.  All my guests really enjoyed the day, so thank you again for making it so relaxing and enjoyable.  Fiona, my daughter-in-law was so happy, she couldn’t stop smiling or talking about it!  I really wanted to make the day special for her so thanks for that.

Silvana, Kalamunda

 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and Bev for making my Mum’s 60th Birthday so special and memorable.  Your china was absolutely amazing and, without it, it would have just been afternoon tea.  The guests were very impressed and full of compliments.  You were both so professional, helpful, patient and kind.  I would happily recommend Antiquitea to anyone.

Tracy, Atwell

 

Thank you so much for your beautiful donation – it was very sort after in the raffle!  Also a huge thank-you for making the day so stress-free and look so amazing!  Everyone commented on how the table settings were beautifully done.  It was so wonderful to work alongside such a professional and friendly team to make the event such a success.  With your help and support, we managed to raise $2,265 for the Harry Perkin’s Institute of Medical Research as part of our fundraising for the Weekend to End Women’s Cancers – a 60km walk we will be participating in next year.  Thank you!

Thank you so much for such a lovely wedding reception.  It was absolutely wonderful, we had such a great time.  You and your staff made it just perfect, exactly how we imagined it to be!  The setting and table layout, service and food (I must tell Chica!) was simply divine and superb.

We had numerous guests comment about how lovely it was and how different having a high tea was, and also how much it was like Alice in Wonderland’s tea party!  The kids thoroughly enjoyed their party pails, particularly Jarrod who just gushed that we had given him a present on our special day!

Catherine, Fremantle 

 

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for your time and effort on Sunday. All the ladies loved it and I am so glad I did it for them. The table was beautiful and everyone who has seen photos has been so impressed.  It’s a wonderful idea and I am racking my brains to think of any excuse to have you back again…  Thanks again Fiona, it was wonderful.

Amy, Woodvale

I had a wonderful day, your tea sets were gorgeous!  Please extend my thanks onto Helena.  She was absolutely beautiful; got along with everyone, set the place up perfectly and really made my day even more special.  Thanks again for your lovely service.

Lara, Thornlie

We had an amazing time, thank you!  All the guests enjoyed it so much and I believe at least one of them will be in touch for you to help her with an event in the next few weeks, so that is great.  Bev was wonderful, nothing was too much trouble for her – I am so glad I had help, it would have been a very different feel for me without her there – so thanks Bev!

Toni, Karrinyup

Just wanted to say thank you for your help and assistance in making my wife’s baby shower a memorable day.  Everyone had a fantastic time and they all commented on how lovely the tea and china was!

Thank you so much for lending us your beautiful things!  The day went beautifully and everyone had a wonderful time… the food was also delicious!  Your assistance has been outstanding and I will definitely be recommending your services in the future!

Susan, Ellenbrook

The party went beautifully.. thank you so much!  The tea set was just gorgeous, everyone commented on it and the girls that came to set up were very friendly and efficient.  Thank you so much once again – the whole service was amazing.  Will definitely recommend you and use you again in the future.

Stuart, Rose, Grace and myself would like to thank you.  Rose’s Mad Hatter Tea Party was a complete success!  Your tea cups and pots were just beautiful and really helped to set the scene.

Jo, Marmion

We had a wonderful afternoon.  The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for it.  Leah was absolutely blown-away with the whole thing.  Bev did a fantastic job and we really appreciated the music that she left behind for us to use.  Once again, thank you for all your efforts.
Jane, Belmont
On behalf of the WAMA we would like to thank you for the wonderful vintage high tea service at the Grand Steampunk Charity Ball for Lifeline on 24 May at Government House, Perth.  Your beautiful china and presentation of the supper looked superb and made it a night to remember!  Nothing else would have suited the event so perfectly and look so impressive.  Your service was exemplary and ran smoothly, both pre and post event.  You and your team did a fantastic job on the night!  Many thanks.

Just wanted to thank you so much for the atmosphere that was created yesterday … everyone raved about the gorgeous crockery & the pleasant surprise when they walked into the event.  The Charity managed to raise just over $5000 – this money will go a long way to helping the disadvantaged families in Bali.  We are truly grateful for the effort made to really make this a memorable event.  When Carol and I get together next, we will be discussing plans to make this an annual event … we may even hold it bi-annually, as it was so popular.  Once again, thanks to you and your staff.

Mana, Carolia Charity – Mandurah

Just a quick thank you to let you know that we loved your beautiful table setting and the tea set.  We are most grateful for your wonderful service and help in making our Hens’ High Tea such a memorable event.

Venessa, Scarborough

 

Our wedding reception was lovely, thank you. Everything went really well and we were so pleased with your waitstaff, Bev and Laura.  We felt that they went above and beyond for us, nothing was too much trouble. They even ran and got my bouquet for me when I was about to walk down the aisle (I had forgotten it!).
Bethany, Byford

 

Thank you so much for being a dream hostess!  Everyone is still talking about the tea sets and how it was ‘the best baby shower ever’.  It simply wouldn’t have been without your expertise and your fabulous vintage china.   Thanks again Fiona…. I will be singing your praises to anyone who will listen!

Leah, Churchlands

 

Thanks again for your assistance in making our ‘Meet the Leaders High Tea’ a success.  It was great to take some time out from the hustle and bustle of mining to sip tea and enjoy dainty snacks from your beautiful china.

Cheryl Finestone (BHP Billiton Nickel West)

 

From the moment I saw your website, I knew you were a kindred spirit and a lady who loves to be surrounded by beautiful things and making people feel special. I knew I wanted to share this experience with the different groups of people in my life – I didn’t want anyone to miss out.  So I arranged a morning tea at work and hired all the beautiful china to share with my friends at work.

Then I arranged a celebration at home and invited about 24 friends and family.  I must say, you exceeded all of my expectations – your attention to detail is fantastic.

My 50th Birthday celebration with Antiquitea was the best birthday party that I have ever been to!  I really, really enjoyed the afternoon tea.  Sitting with a roomful of friends at beautifully set tables, with exquisite china and amazing food from Chica Catering and being served the best teas was an event I will never forget and neither will my friends.

Since that day, I have had so many comments from everyone who attended – they absolutely loved the event and thanked me for inviting them.  Some friends said that is was an incredible way to celebrate a birthday.  One special lady was so excited by the (50’s themed) invitation, she bought a new dress and made herself a beautiful 50’s style hat for the occasion!  Another girlfriend said that she she had been showing all her friends the photos we had taken on the day, as everything was so beautiful.

When planning the event, I looked around to see which hotels and cafes offered high tea.  There were not many to choose from and most of them had a 2 hour time limit.  My main reasons for choosing Antiquitea were firstly, no-one else offered china that was so beautiful and, secondly, I did not want to ruin the event by being restricted to a time limit.  When I saw the beautiful table settings, I wanted the event to go on forever!

I have been recommending Antiquitea to everyone and am already planning a 3rd Antiquitea High Tea for my relations.

Thanks again Fiona…  looking forward to my next high tea!

Julie, Innaloo

 

I have to thank you so much for helping me all the way with my 50th Birthday High Tea… together, we made this day a memorable one.  From the invitations you printed and posted, to the delicious food from Chica Catering – that was prepared and delivered fresh on the day, to Eufloria, for the lovely floral arrangements and Adi, from Sugar Pop Love Photography, who captured all the special moments of the day.  It was a pleasure to do business with these lovely people that you recommended.  Nothing was too much trouble for them.

And, Fiona, to you and your waitstaff who set everything up, served the delicious food and then cleaned up at the end of my party you were all just great.. I was able to sit down, relax and enjoy my 50th birthday knowing that my guests were in the hands of professionals.  To this day, my friends and family are all still telling me how nice my high tea was and how much they really enjoyed themselves.  They say everything was just beautiful:  from the invitations, to the food and your team.  They say it was a very special day and they loved it.  Once again, many thanks for making my 50th birthday a day I will never forget.

Thank you very much for Sunday… everything you set up was absolutely perfect.  you managed to transport all of us (especially the grannies!) to a bygone era!  A memorable and a very happy occasion for us.  Bouquets to you and your team!  Everyone at the Mt Lawley Golf Club was also fantastic – they made my job so much easier and with 84 loud ladies, that was no mean feat!

Thanks for everything once again.  You made Venessa very happy with this first step to her upcoming wedding.

Angela, Stirling

 

I’d just like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff so much for your outstanding service and tea ware for my 40th Birthday Princess Party.  Jenna was absolutely lovely and professional, I was very impressed and would recommend Antiquitea to anyone who would like to host a tea party.

Tracy, Kenwick

I just wanted to drop you a quick line and let you know how pleased I was with my baby shower.  What a truly unique experience it was.  I am so happy that I booked Antiquitea for the day!

Thankyou so much for everything!  From our initial contact I knew that I was in good hands.  Your attention to detail and organisation was so thorough, nothing seemed to be too much trouble.  I have received so many positive comments from my guests on how beautiful the tea service was.  Once it was set up it was stunning.  Everyone enjoyed themselves and found it a relaxing and stress-free day. It was so lovely to not have to worry about the organisation as I knew you had it all under control.

It made my baby shower very memorable and I will cherish that lovely afternoon in days to come.

I will certainly be recommending your services to people who want a classy and unique experience.

Jackie, Dianella

 

I just wanted to let you know that I had a wonderful birthday, and my afternoon tea party was so special and everyone thought it was quite a different idea.  I think they originally might have thought a high tea was a staid and boring affair, but they soon thought differently..  and many people took your card.   All the comments I’ve been receiving have been so positive and my gift will always give me such happy memories. Thank you once again for helping to make this birthday so very special.

Anne, Greenwood

 

Just a very quick note to say a huge thank you for your services for the Hen’s Day High Tea on Saturday afternoon.  I received so many comments about how beautiful the grounds, food and settings were!  Everyone enjoyed the day and that is due to your professionalism and support.

Fiona, many ladies were particularly impressed with the presentation of the High Tea and I was particularly grateful for the efficiency of the set-up and pack-up.  I am sure you will be getting even more calls about your services as I had to repeat the spelling of your website a number of times!!!

Thanks again!

Michelle, Point Walter

 

We had an amazing day and the girls from Antiquitea were lovely and very helpful.  Thank you very much for all your help.

Deborah, South Yunderup

Our Parents and Friends Association afternoon tea was great!  I loved watching people’s faces when they walked in and saw the way the room was set up.  By all reports everyone was very impressed with both the set up and the menu.  I think you will be contacted by a few mothers who would also like to host a high tea in the future.  Thanks again for all your help!

Rosi, St Kieran’s Catholic Primary School

 

Thank you so much for the contribution your wonderful business made to my birthday celebrations.  Bev was very obliging and so friendly and your china is truly beautiful.  I hope to have another occasion to call on your services in the future.

Susan, Dalkeith

 

It was lovely to meet both you and Steph.  We definitely had a lovely time and the tea sets looked fantastic!  Even my brother commented on the photos saying it ‘looked a bit flash’!.  Once again, thank you for making it a lovely day for my sister’s kitchen tea.

Shana, Canning Vale

 

Thanks again for your great service (at my baby shower) over the weekend.  It really helped to ensure the day when smoothly and I will have great memories of that day.  Everyone really enjoyed it!

Sara, Bicton

 

Thank you!!  Your china is absolutely gorgeous and made the kitchen tea one my guests and I will never forget.  Your service took a lot of stress out of my day!

Cassandra, Rockingham

 

I just wanted to express my sincere thanks for the amazing job that was done on Saturday at my baby shower.  It was a beautiful and elegant afternoon that exceeded my expectations – you can only visualise in your head so much and it just goes to show how much you can transform a drab-looking outdoor area!

I have had an overwhelming amount of fantastic feedback from the guests stating how much they enjoyed the afternoon.  The level of professionalism shown and your attention to detail was immaculate – a service I am very much looking foward to using again and recommending to friends.

Carla, Willetton

Carla’s Baby Shower

 

Thanks so much for your work and the beautiful service you provide.  It was everything you promised.

Joanne, Dalkeith

 

It was lovely to meet you and I would like to thank you for your professional service leading up to and on the day of the high tea.  The set up was absolutely beautiful and everyone commented on how amazing everything was.  It was a pleasure dealing with you and I will have no hesitation in highly recommending your services.

Sarah, Attadale

 

Just wanted to send a quick thank you for the wonderful service your company has provided.  What a pleasure to deal with true professionals, who helped make our event stress-free and a truly enjoyable occasion.  Catherine was prompt, professional and very accommodating to a stressed hostess!

Sharon, Hillarys

I would just like to give you a huge thank you for the fabulous effort you put in for our high tea yesterday.  Thanks also for helping with the flowers – that was a huge bonus to us.  The table set-up was amazing and all the ladies loved your antique china varieties.  The afternoon went perfectly and the weather was nice to us in the end!  I will email you some photos over the next couple of days.. thanks again Fiona, you are amazing!

Amanda, Baldivis

 

Wow, is all I can say.  What a wonderful day.. it was everything I thought it would be.  I would have just loved more time, it’s a shame good things have to come to an end!  Your vintage china is gorgeous, the place settings were amazing and your service was wonderful.  I’m so glad I had you both there to help out, it really did make all the difference.  I will definitely be recommending you to people, having the high tea in my own setting rather than a restaurant really did make it so special.  My daughter enjoyed every moment and I know all the guests did too.  Thanks again.

Lee-Anne, Piara Waters

 

Just writing thank you so much for Sunday.  We had a great day and we loved the look and feel of the settings and, most importantly, so did our guests.

Paula, Mt Hawthorn

 

The day turned out really well and my sister had a fantastic time at her kitchen tea.  The biggest compliment she has given me was ‘I’m actually excited now and looking forward to my wedding!’.  I don’t think I could have wished for anything more.  I look forward to using Antiquitea again in the future – and am very much looking forward to the Ultimate High Tea at the Fremantle Town Hall in May!

Casie, South Perth

 

Many, many thanks for last Saturday.  It was lovely and your company has been featured highly amongst conversations since the party!  You and Bev did a great job and we are truly grateful.

Narelle, Marangaroo

 

 

 

Thanks for a very successful and enjoyable mother/daughter high tea party.  A great time was had by all.  Bev was perfect.  She was so lovely and left things so tidy and perfect. Thank her again for me. She did an awesome job.

Tracey, Karrinyup

 

Everyone loved the vintage china, the atmosphere was just fabulous and I wish to thank you again for your assistance in making it such a great day.

Richard, Carine

 

Thank you so very much for making the party such a success.  Everyone raved about the set up.  Both you and Bev are lovely people and very professional and it shows in your work.  Once again thank you for everything, I will definitely recommend your business to one and all.

Cheryl, Beverley (event held in Kings Park)

 

Thank you again Fiona.  I have had so many compliments about the afternoon tea and your beautiful china.  Everyone seemed to really enjoy themselves.

Rosemary, Floreat

 

Thanks again to you and all of your team for the fantastic work on Saturday.  People are still raving about how pretty everything looked and quite a few people have asked me for your company details.  If I did it all again, the only thing I would do differently is I’d employ a couple of helpers for the actual event so that I could enjoy it even more.

Alica, Mt Lawley

 

I’m writing to thank you most sincerely for arranging such a wonderful occasion to celebrate my birthday.  I am most appreciative of all your efforts and my friends were most impressed by the food and the service.  Please also pass on our thanks to your caterers.  The food was superb as were the flowers.  I’d also like to thank you for providing Charlotte to help on the day.  She was marvellous – always attentive and helpful for any requests made of her.  It was a joy to have her here – I certainly couldn’t have done it without her.  Thanks again Fiona, I had a truly wonderful day.

Jill, North Fremantle

 

The day was amazing… everything was beautifully set up.  Maddi was very professional and lovely.  The professionalism from beginning to end is wonderful.

Santina, Noranda

 

I just wanted to thank you (so much) for helping to make my Mother-in-Law’s 60th Birthday something truly special over the weekend.  She was just overwhelmed with her fabulous high tea and I cannot thank you enough for all your help in making it so special for her.

I look forward to handing out your business cards to my brides and recommending they hold a high tea for their kitchen tea or hens’ day!

Stacey Morris, Civil Marriage Celebrant

 

I wanted to tell you that the event was wonderful and your cups and plates were a big success!  Everybody (even my Facebook friends) asked me about the beautiful china!!  Helena did a great job helping us with the set-up and giving us advice.  She was wonderful!!!  I will definitely hire your services again some time in the future.  The raffle was also great!  We raised an additional US$400, so thank you for such a kind gesture.

Sandra, North Fremantle

 

Mum had a wonderful 50thBirthday – it couldn’t have been a more perfect day!  She fell in love with your beautiful tea sets.  It was such a nice touch and really made our high tea event that extra little bit more special.  Your tea ware was certainly a hot talking point throughout the day and we ensured your business cards were passed onto those who enquired about your services.  Everyone was very impressed to say the least.

My sister also mentioned how friendly and helpful your assistant was when she delivered and collected the items.

I’ll definitely keep you in mind for the future.  Thank you ever so much!

Sarah, Kingsley

 

Today was such a beautiful success (I put a picture on Facebook)!  It was so lovely and everyone was wowed by your tea set.  Thanks so much Fiona, your tea set really gives me great pleasure.

Adi, Doubleview

 

Thank you so much for organising the kitchen tea pre-wedding!  We had lots of fun and enjoyed being all dainty for a day!  We truly felt like princesses!  I’ll be sure to recommend you to all of my friends.  Take care, and here’s to many more happy, joyous tea party occasions!

Sarah, Booragoon

 

 I had a wonderful time at my kitchen tea yesterday, everyone was blown away by the beautiful tea sets!  I will have to send you some photos of the tables all finished with the flowers and goodies on the cake stands.

Thank you once again, you guys did an absolutely wonderful job.  It all turned out so beautiful – better than I could have imagined!  And thank you for my little compact too, I love it!

Dannielle, Seville Grove

 

I would like to sincerely thank you and Bev, as my Mum was so thrilled with her vintage high tea.  The table looked gorgeous and everything went so smoothly.  My brother and sister-in-law really got into the spirit of it too, which was great!  My Dad commented that his Mum (who would be 101 if she was alive) would have just loved it!  All of your china is so adorable and we loved the beautiful cake forks, etc – it was all those little extras that made the table look so beautiful – the little gift at the end was a nice touch too.  So overall, a gorgeous ‘present’ to a Mum who has everything but gives so much!  Thankyou..

Roz, Leeming

 

Thank you so much for yesterday Fiona.. had emails from all the boys saying how fantastic it all was and they were all very impressed.  The tea setting was really beautiful.  I hope we get to do business again next year!

Deborah, Rockingham

 

Thank you so much for organising such a beautiful and memorable occasion for my birthday.  Bev was absolutely amazing, so lovely and professional.  I realised in a panic the night before that I hadn’t arranged for a waitperson even though I’d intended to.  The dilemma wasn’t a problem though as Bev offered to stay and with that she completely and seamlessly created magic by plating up food, serving the tea and drinks and generally working incredibly hard and non-stop.  She left my kitchen spotless, covering up food and cleaning dishes!  She is an absolute gem!  The event certainly would not have been the same for either myself or my guests without her.  Antiquitea has been an absolute delight from start to finish.  My guests and I were thrilled with every aspect of the day.  Thank you so much for providing such a wonderful, professional and, above all, memorable opportunity to celebrate such a special occasion with my family and friends.  I am very grateful.

Marissa, Hillarys

 

It was a lovely day on Saturday, thank you for everything.  Everyone is still raving about it.

Tarryn, Byford

 

It was lovely to meet you in person and may I say that the day was such a success, mainly due to the beautiful first impression that was set by you and your team.  People really appreciated the effort that was taken to make the day so special.  I think it will be talked about for a long time to come.  All your business cards were taken up quite early in the afternoon, so I have no doubt you will get more business from it.

Karen, St Anthony’s Church, Wanneroo

 

I would like to thank you for the Vintage High Tea ‘thankyou party’ you did for me for all my valued clients – they had a ball.  It really took all the stress away from me with you sending the invitations and arriving early to set everything up and run the day for me.  It was the easiest function I have ever had to organise as I didn’t feel like I did much at all, except relax and enjoy the occasion!  So again, a huge thankyou and I will definitely be telling all of my friends about your business!

Nicky, North Beach

 

 

Thank you again for yesterday.  I have been receiving emails all morning from those that attended saying what a great time they had, in particular the high tea.  I am sure we will do it again and hope you will be available.  You made us all feel so special the way you presented it and made it so enjoyable.

Wendy, Nedlands

  

Thanks again for providing such a wonderful service!  Everyone really enjoyed being ‘girlie’ for the afternoon!!  It was lovely!  We will happily be recommending you to others!

Esther, Roleystone

 

Thankyou ever so much for all your assistance in putting together my Baby Shower.  You have a beautiful business concept and the knowledge to back it up.  I promise to sing the praises of Antiquitea to all who will listen!

Megan, Ballajura


Thank you for making the whole process so easy – everyone just adored the teacups, etc.

Michelle, Mosman Park

  

We would like to extend our sincere thanks and gratitude to you for giving us a wonderful Wedding High Tea on Saturday.  Our guests loved the idea of the old-fashioned high tea and there was no-one better than you to make this happen.

Jeff & Di, Peppermint Grove

 

Thank you to you and Bev.  Bev did a great job presenting the china… everyone couldn’t compliment the presentation enough.

Francesca, Scarborough

 

Yesterday was just beautiful.  Thank you so much for everything, your exceptional service, beautiful china, co-operation, support, and for Maddi on the day.

Fay, Maylands

 

Just a quick note to say thank you for the use of your gorgeous vintage tea set on Sunday.  It was simply a stunning display, which added charm and character to my ‘High Tea’ 30th birthday party! The visual impact of the tea set was beautiful and all guests commented on how lovely the room looked.  Your professionalism and help with setting up was much appreciated and made my life that bit more easier on the day.  I will definately recommend your service to friends and family. Thanks again Fiona, what a truly beautiful service you offer.

Gemma, Doubleview

 

I want to thank you for your contribution to the wedding.  The tables looked fantastic and the service was great.  I have had so many positive comments from guests about the high tea.

The day turned out to be lovely.  You and your team were fantastic and the place looked amazing.

Fiona, Menora

 

Thank you for your fabulous service over the weekend.  Our event was a success and my Mum was overwhelmed with the beautiful tea services at her high tea.  Your staff were very efficient and professional.  I have, and will be, highly recommending your company in the future.  I hope to be able to host another event soon, just so I can use your services again.  Thanks once again.

Sharon, Rossmoyne

 

We still have people talking about it! Thanks again for everything you guys were great!

Anna, Munster

 

Thank you Fiona for helping to make our Mother’s 60th Birthday High Tea on the 11th June (with your amazing finishing touches)!  Once again thank you for your professional manner.  We have had a lot of comments and have been passing on your name and number to everyone so wish you great success with the business.  Thank you – it was great working with a professional person.

Steve and Darren, Midland

 

Many thanks Fiona!   The afternoon was a wonderful success and all the ladies just loved the beautiful tea set you provided.  You offer a fantastic service!

Gerrie, Thornlie

 

Thank you so much for helping to make my Mother’s surprise party truly perfect.  We were really impressed with your service and especially the lovely attention to detail.  I have passed your card on to Liz, who is the lady that runs ‘La Galette’ in Kalamunda (where I got the petit four from), with a ‘highly recommended’ from me!  Again, thank you for all your help.

Ruth, Gooseberry Hill

 

Bev and Laura were so wonderful and they worked so hard.  Everyone had a ball and the feedback has been amazing.

What a beautiful day we had.. thirteen tables set up with afternoon tea cloths, bone china tea cups, champagne glasses, your beautiful three-tiered cake stands (all filled with homemade goodies of yesteryear), vases with beautiful roses, for a high tea for 65 people.  The guest of honour arrived an 2.00pm and left still talking at 9.30pm.  Thankyou for your wonderful contribution to the day.

Anne, Jolimont

 

A HUGE thank you to your staff on Sunday, they were amazing!!  We will definitely recommend you to everyone!

Paola, Touched by Angels

 

Thank you again for all your help on our wedding day.  Your team ensured the day ran smoothly and that we were able to relax and enjoy it.. and your fine china is totally gorgeous!

Once again, many thanks for making our day so special!

Katherine & Paul, Victoria Park

 

Thank you so very much for all your help with my sister’s pre-wedding party on Saturday.  Your wonderful service far out-weighed my expectations.  You were so professional and set up our tables beautifully.  The afternoon was just perfect and all the ladies were extremely impressed.

I really look forward to working with you again one day – hopefully for my own high tea next time!!

Raquelle, Leeming

Jane, Attadale Private Hospital

 

Thank you soooo much for everything.  Mum’s high tea was amazing.  She was so surprised, it was hilarious, she couldn’t believe the trouble we went to!  Thanks as well to Emma, she was lovely and very accommodating.  It was so awesome also to not have to wash everything afterwards!  Thanks again Fiona, I hope to use you again in the future.

Chelsee, Success

 

I just wanted to say how impressed I was with everything. Emma was so helpful and set everything up quickly and easily with no fuss.  Antiquitea definitely helped make the event one to remember and I wouldn’t hesitate in hiring from you again. Thank you so much!

Michaela, Como

 

My 40th birthday high tea was wonderful, thank you.  All of my friends thought it was fantastic and we all loved the party games!  They gave it that something extra.  It all looked beautiful and it is definitely something special to remember.  Charlotte was lovely, helpful and discreet.

Heather, Samson

 

I would like to say a huge thank you for your impeccable service.  It truly felt a privilege to be amongst all your exquisite china and brought back a lot of memories of coming home to my Mother entertaining her friends!  I must admit, the guys actually loved it as well!  Well done, and I will definitely highly recommend you and Antiquitea.

Tracy, Lend Lease – West Perth

 

I would like to thank Antiquitea for making our party so memorable.  Everyone commented on how beautiful the settings were and how they added a very special touch to the party.  Fiona, you were especially attentive to my initial request for a quote and followed through with the consistent focus until the end.  That’s great customer service – 5 stars!

Juliana, Wembley Downs
