I have had a lifelong passion for porcelain and cannot resist a pretty cup and saucer, which I consider to be perfect little pieces of art! So I had been building up a little collection for some time, before doing so professionally.
However, the idea for Ali’s Vintage really came about when I wanted to create a vintage look for my own wedding.
I didn’t just want vintage crockery and glassware, but also loved the idea of having candles and fairy lights sparkling through glass, peonies and roses in vintage vases.
So, I began sourcing beautiful pressed glass, as well as crockery until I had achieved a gorgeous and eclectic mix of all sorts of glass cake stands, bon-bon bowls and stemmed vases.
My wedding was beautiful, and just as I’d imagined it to look. Friends loved the idea and spread the word and I gradually began providing vintage crockery, bunting and props for other people’s big days.
For me, it’s not just a business, but a love of creating a beautiful and special event and seeing all my amazing and much-loved crockery, cutlery and glassware being used and bringing joy to hundreds of other people!
I hope I can help you create your own memorable event soon…
