Vintage Hen Hamper Celebration Ideas 2012 / 2013

Photo’s by Caroline Gue of CP Photography.

You may remember a little while ago we launched a hen hamper for a vintage picnic or afternoon tea.

We thought we would share some photos from a recent event so you get a feel of what you can create whether you are planning a celebration at home, a venue or a festival etc.

This is a really nice idea if you are planning a hen celebration for 2013 as it would be perfect for Henley Regetta and Ascot.  As our British weather is not the most reliable you could take a gazebo and use the bunting to add some decoration.


All you need to do is bring the food and drink.  Pink lemonade looks oh so pretty in these vintage cups.  You can also put hot drinks in them too!


Don’t forget, also included in your hamper is sweet treats for guests in our gorgeous pink and red polka dot and stripy boxes.  Complete with vintage trivia card, sweet candy necklace and Fuschia’s signature shot glass, filled with dolly mixtures and packaged with pastel ribbon and feather.

For more information please contact Fuschia on 01189 773 931 or email us

We will be bringing you other hen ideas over the coming weeks, and yes they have a vintage theme!

Charity Tea Party For Sue Ryder – Henley Nettlebed

Last week Fuschia was involved with supplying table decor and vintage crockery and accessories for a charity Afternoon tea party.


Our mum held a small gathering at home to raise funds for Sue Ryder Hospice which is based in Nettlebed near Henley.  It is a special place to us as our Dad was there so we like to raise money for the up keep of the home.

Mum invited friends who she used to work with, as they have a ladies lunch once a month, so instead of them paying for lunch and drinks at a country pub or resturant she sugguested a donation to Sue Ryder.


Mum then provided all the food and drink for a gorgeous afternoon tea so all the money raised went to Sue Ryder.  Fuschia supported this by donating all the accessories free of charge to use for the afternoon.

We all had a lovely afternoon as Jacqueline, Mason and I attended.  It was so nice to catch up with everyone and the weather was lovely and raised £116 for Sue Ryder.

A big thank you to everyone who attended and helped towards the money raised, it is very much appreciated.

It is a great charity and really does require donations, so if you are interested in helping raise money or to make a donation please do not hesitate to contact them.
