Vintage Celebrations – this seasons must have Theme

The vintage trend is still here and looks to be a strong theme for weddings and celebrations for 2013.

Recently at Fuschia we have supplied our gorgeous original vintage china and vintage accessories for a wide range of events.  Over the coming weeks we will be sharing with you lots of ways to bring a vintage feel into your celebration, whether its a little get together with friends, a wedding reception or afternoon tea for a birthday party.

We will also be launching some very new and exciting products and a Vintage Picnic hamper and tea party which are perfect for a girlie hen celebration, so lots to look out for.

We wanted to share with you a customer tea party which the staff at the Royal berkshire Hospital Audiology Department arranged one afternoon.  Staff all joined together to make it a team event by baking home made cakes and making yummy sandwiches.

The items used for this event from Fuschia were our vintage china cups and saucers, side plates, tea pots, sugar bowls and milk jugs.  For that extra vintage touch our floral table cloth.  Vintage cakes stands and rose design paper napkins were all added to create the perfect afternoon Tea.

View our vintage tea party products on our website and online boutique.

We would love to show case pictures of your vintage event, so please do get in touch and email pictures of your vintage celebration with our products to:

Jubilations Over the Bank Holiday Weekend


Wow!  What a weekend of celebrations, the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee certainly didn’t disappoint, well accept for the weather!!!

Sunday morning we decided to pack the hats, gloves and macs after watching the breakfast tv and we were so glad we did….we got drenched!!! But it was all worth while to get the glimpse of the Royal Boat and family onboard and all the wonderful boats that followed.  Everyone had gone to so much effort, it was so lovely to go out and support them.

Monday, was a much drier and warmer affair with a Jubilee family BBQ.  The conversatory and garden was decked with bunting, there wasn’t a surface untouched without a splash of red, white and blue!


Union Jack fabric and throws draped over chairs to look like they have been upholstered, chair covers bowed in navy and pillar box red, and even little Mason had his hi chair decorated – your never to young to celebrate at Fuschia!   The table just oozed with decor and the centre piece; a cluster of balloons with of course the Union Jack really set the theme for the afternoon of Jubilee celebrations.


Table cloths, cups, themed glassware, triva scratch cards, windmills, napkins, chocolate lollies were all part of making the BBQ that little bit more special and British.

We all bought each other jubilee gifts, which was fun seeing if we had found something different than someone else!  These included union jack socks, official magazine & stamps, blue, red and white M&M’s, The Queen DVD, kitchen roll with teapots and the union jack flag on and of course a mug to drink our English cups of tea from with a chocolate crispy cake on our royal cake stands!

We had such a great day, the BBQ was followed by Fuschia family fun, more eating, drinking and watching the live coverage on the box.  There were so many great moments but some of our favourites were the concert on Monday night and the Royal procession down the Mall on the Tuesday afternoon.  Finally how could we not mention the balcony wave and of course the stunning fly by.

I must say it made us feel very proud to be British and reminded us we are so lucky to live in such a fantastic country.  Oh and how much Fuschia love to party!!

God Save the Queen!

The Jubilee Weekend is Here!!!

Flags up for the Jubilee Celebrations in Oxford Street, London.

As you know here at Fuschia we love a celebration so we are really looking forward to the long bank holiday weekend and will be closed for this period!

We would love to know what you are doing to celebrate, so let us know and send in some images so we can post a blog up.  Email:

We have a couple of  exciting things planned.  Our local town, Wokingham is having a Jubilee lunch where you can go and buy lunch at local restaurants and various entertainments have been arranged throughout the day to make it a real family event so that will be fun and nice to support the local community.

Then on the Sunday we are heading up to the Thames to see the Royal Diamond Jubilee Pageant, check out the details here and join in, its just a train ride away and pack a picnic!

Don’t forget for those sticky fingers your napkins, but if you can’t get any royal themed ones as they have sold out look out for the Jubilee Kitchen roll themed with bunting and teapots from Thirst Pockets !

Then to end our celebrations we are have a BBQ with the family on the Monday which will be great.  Our youngest member Mason, of eighteen months is now walking and loves holding flags so he will be joining in the celebrations!  And of course the BBQ will not be complete without bunting and themed products Royal Britainnia style.

Have a fantastic Jubilee Celebration and get involved, these occasions don’t happen very often and it is something to enjoy with friends and family and remember in years to come.

Happy Queen’s Diamond Jubilee From all of us at Fuschia!
