Many companies provide a variety of wedding rentals, including tents, chairs and other furniture, linens, lighting, and, of course, tableware. Our company is different. Tea and Old Roses focuses on providing the most beautiful vintage tableware available, and has a carefully and lovingly curated collection of all-English vintage china in myriad colors and patterns. We have mismatched china 5-piece place settings for 350+, tea service (C/S, salad or B/B) for 400+, and cake plates for 700+. We have a wide variety of serving pieces, including platters, bowls, creamers, sugars, coffee and teapots. English porcelain is arguably the most beautiful and prized in the world, and setting your tables with our mismatched china in complementary patterns will only enhance that beauty.

Tea and Old Roses is owned by Robin Wilhelm, a lifelong lover of English china. She grew up eating all her meals on the beautiful china collected by her mom while her dad was stationed in London with the US Air Force. Her mom purchased sets for each of her three other daughters (Robin wasn’t born yet!), her three sisters, and her own mother. When Robin married, her mom gave her a set of lovely Spode luncheon plates in the American Birds pattern, starting her now significant collection. Tea and Old Roses is the only all-English china wedding rentals company in Alabama.
