About Us

Forteas and the service it offers has been created to generate an income stream to support our ‘Not For Profit’ organisation Aspiring2 CIC. Our beautiful collection of China is perfect for weddings,  bride-to-be tea, birthdays, baby showers, anniversary milestones or just an afternoon tea event for family and friends. Any event  can be transformed into a special vintage theme.

Crockery hire – An ever growing collection of beautiful quality bone china having a hint of pure decadence and a bundle of charm will transform your day into a truly vintage experience. Choose to add catering and waitress service to further enhance your special celebration. We suggest that an appointment to view all of our china and memorabilia will allow you to plan your theme and table settings. See the relevant pages for more information, just select tabs to view a small selection of our beautiful quality china.

Candy / Cupcake Vintage Trolley Hire – A Vintage Hostess Trolley either supplied with Candy or Cupcakes or BOTH !!!  We prefer to offer a viewing service but more than happy to email pictures to those who prefer to see pictures first. This item can also be hired without product as a ‘Dry Hire’ item for you to fill with your own sweeties. It is also available for hire as a unique and beautiful cake stand.

The Reason why we Hire:

Aspiring2 represent some of the most vulnerable adults in our communities by offering low cost and often free activities in a bid to combat isolation and loneliness

We host Afternoon Tea & Vintage Activity sessions to established groups,  offer a lunch service to local businesses who want to treat their staff to a magical vintage lunch. We welcome local community groups and local businesses to approach us to host their own activities and share their environment or work place.

All proceeds will help us to continue our support and bolster our constant bid to reduce isolation and loneliness and encourage individuals to reach their full potential.
