The China Cabinet has been hiring vintage tableware for weddings and special events in Canterbury for over 16 years.

This week however it was a real honour to receive an editorial by local Canterbury Lifestyle magazine, Metropol, for their “Canterbury Bride” section.

Our vast collection of gorgeous china, silverware and crystal is always a beautiful and memorable addition to weddings and we love to help make your day extra special.

Kind words

“The China Cabinet is a china lover’s paradise. Maureen has taken care in ensuring she has the most beautiful collection of fine china pieces for people to enjoy and use, her collection range goes far wider than any other person’s collection I have seen. Maureen’s pieces are perfectly intact and are always delivered in person. She offers to help set up her china for events to ensure it is always looking ‘just right’. I have used her pieces for a variety of different events/occasions, from high teas, lunches and afternoon teas and I would never look anywhere else again when it comes to hiring china.”

“The China Cabinet has the most beautiful vintage tea sets! Maureen never fails to provide an extremely smooth and reliable service! She always goes above and beyond! We have loved hiring from her for our Women in Engineering high tea events over the years and will continue to do so!”

“Thanks for having the most amazing hire products that have been so beautifully cared for! Everyone adored using the teacups and Tracey Allsopp Photography couldn’t get enough of those champagne glasses! You were so wonderful to deal with 🥰”

“I love your china so much. I have been following you for ages and I was always going to be using your china at my wedding.  I actually had you on Pinterest before I even had a fiancé 😂”

“I have hired silver trays, tea pots, cake stands and champagne glasses for high tea fundraisers and birthday parties. Everything was well organised and reasonably priced. Highly recommended!”

“Fantastic selection of china! Such fun selecting each piece for my daughter’s first birthday, will definitely hire from here again.”

“Maureen has an impressive China collection and was a absolute pleasure to deal with from initial enquiries through to collection & recipe advice. Thank you!”

“This event was a great success last year and your gorgeous tea sets really elevate the high tea experience.”

“I have hired from The China Cabinet several times and have been impressed with both the quality of china and other items for hire, and the impeccable customer service provided by Maureen. The whole process of selecting china to pickup/delivery is stress free every time and the china is top quality – no chips or cracks or wear. My guests have always been “wowed” by the beautiful china. I highly recommend Maureen and The China Cabinet.”

“Honestly could not have been happier. There is everything you could ever hope to hire for a tea party at The China Cabinet and the array of options to select from is seemingly endless! When it comes to tea and china, Maureen is passionate and knows exactly what she’s doing which made the whole process so much fun and so easy. She was so wonderful to work with – having an amazing collection of very pretty and high quality china, and is also such a lovely person. Could not recommend working with The China Cabinet enough.”
