New Products for Whitehouse Event Crockery

White crockery simply never goes out of style. Whether square, round or oblong, white plates and pots are one of our most popular items for hire here at Whitehouse. Chefs love white plates for showing off the vibrant colours in their food, and when planning a table, white always looks fresh and clean, providing the perfect base to build your table theme around.

With a pristine white centre and a self-coloured subtle pattern around the edge, the Florence range brings a touch of design to classic white crockery.

WHITEHOUSE_PORCELAIN_HIRE_1
Available in a dinner plate, a starter plate, a side plate, desert pate, soup plate and cups and saucers, and at quantities up to 1000 per item, we know our regular and new customers will simply love the Florence range.

In addition to our new white crockery for hire, we also have a brand new glassware range to add to our collection called Victoria – View our Victoria Glassware range here

WHITEHOUSE_PORCELAIN_HIRE_3

We always like to name our crockery, cutlery, glass and tableware ranges after beautiful female names. From Grace to Amelia, Mia to Sienna, we think the names of our ranges reflect the beauty of the pieces themselves.

Our stunning new glassware range is a beautiful combination of contemporary meets classic design. With a tapered stem and cut bowl, it would look perfect in any table setting. From one of the finest producers in Italy, the new range features a red wine glass, a white wine glass and a champagne flute.

Whitehouse Expands after Busy Summer

It’s been a busy summer here at Whitehouse HQ! We’ve been up and down the country providing our plates, crockery, glassware and tableware for events of all shapes and sizes.

From product launches to promotional events, showcases to open days, our crockery has been hired for use at all kinds of events so far this year. We have also been especially busy with weddings over the summer months; with one or two celebrity names gracing our client list! 

WHITEHOUSE CROCKERY EVENT DELIVERIES

Due to the increase in demand for our crockery from both new and repeat clients, we have welcomed five new members of staff to our team since June. Now taking our total number of employees to 9, our team includes the lovely Racheal who has joined us as office manager who is doing a great job of dealing with customer orders and managing the logistics of our deliveries.

In another method to meet customer demand we have also invested in a further delivery vehicle. With the new van now on the road, we are able to provide an enhanced service and shorter ordering deadlines for our catering, private and restaurant clients throughout the UK. 

WHITEHOUSE CROCKERY STAFF

In addition to expanding our workforce, we have also increased the setting numbers available for some of our most popular ranges and some fabulous new ranges. This includes our hugely popular Grace gold cutlery. As one of the few high end suppliers offering gold cutlery hire in the UK, we can now provide up to 600 place settings.

Big Love! from Typical Type

Our BIG LOVE adventure began in the Summer of 2013. Typical Type was born from many years of left over pieces of wood and MDF being made by Darren into letters and shapes during quiet moments in the workshop. Dotted all around our house are little letters and tokens of love, and we decided it was high time to spread the joy to others, and so started Typical Type. Then in October 2013 we were then asked if we could supply BIG lit letters for weddings by a photographer friend. When we say BIG, we really mean BIG. One frantic week later the leap was made from 20 cm letters to 6 foot high ones. Our first wedding fair saw us take 6 bookings and we knew we were on the right path.

Askham Hall250_1000px

We are based between the lovely old town of Lancaster and the glorious seaside town of Morecambe, and we now deliver our lovely BIG letters, numbers and lighting solutions all over the North West. Initially we worked from home, but now we have out-grown that and have a happy work shop near the river Lune, and deliver all over the North West.

Hipping034_1000px

Now we are the proud suppliers of 6 foot high lit letters to many, many weddings, parties and celebrations and our range has grown to include new lighting, such as festoons and Edisons. We understand that your day is yours. You have planned for months and make your choices carefully, and we are meticulous about getting things right for you. Our letters are insured, pat tested and immaculate. You will never see them at odd angles or looking a bit bashed – we want to get it perfect for you and go to great lengths to get it just right. Getting married is a truly joyful time, but it can be a little stressful too, so we are here to help, please just contact us if you have any queries at all, we LOVE to hear from you.

BIG LOVE,

Planning the Perfect Wedding!

I started Finesse Planning (www.finesseplanning.com) over 8 years ago to offer a design led planning service for couples wanting something personal and unique. Since then I have helped hundreds of couples achieve their perfect wedding whilst having fun during the planning process. I also had the honour of winning The 2013 Wedding Industry Awards for Best Wedding Planner (Independent).

FINESSE_PLANNING_CROCKERY_HIRE_1

As a design led wedding planner, one of the most enjoyable elements of my work is preparing the ‘Design Book’. After an initial discussion with my couple, I go away and use their ideas, wants, dreams and desires to produce a complete design proposal for their wedding. This 13 page book is then presented for them to choose the elements of the wedding they wish to have such as stationery, floral arrangements, attire, furniture, lighting, not forgetting the tableware plus so much more.
From the beginning of the journey to the very end, I work very closely with my couples, building a relationship that exceeds that of a normal wedding planner/client so that I can gain a true understanding of the type of wedding they are looking to create. It is so important to me that the wedding truly represents the both of them and this is why I facilitate them with ideas, so they can make the final decisions on every element of the wedding.

FINESSE_PLANNING_CROCKERY_HIRE_2

When working on the design book, with all of my weddings I immediately go straight to Whitehouse Event Crockery’s website for inspiration and to choose items to propose to my clients. Without fail there is always something that works with any scheme. For a recent wedding, the original scheme was to include the gold beaded daisy plate, however, after a lovely visit from Marc with an array of new products, I knew instantly that the pink Sienna charger would work perfectly with the Alex glassware and would add something unique to the popular blush and silver scheme. It didn’t disappoint!

FINESSE_PLANNING_CROCKERY_HIRE_3

I always take amazing pride in my weddings and have a reputation for my attention to detail and by using the products from Whitehouse Event Crockery I know that I will achieve the high-end luxury look that my clients expect. Every item is meticulously measured at each place setting, ensuring they are presented in the best possible way giving me that exceptionally polished result.  Without fail, whenever I have presented the completed room with the full set up to the couple, they are always blown away by how beautiful it looks and I can honestly say that it would be so much harder to achieve the same reaction if I didn’t use the
fabulous service from Whitehouse Event Crockery Hire, here’s to lots more wonderful events together!

Kate Cullen – Creative Styling & Design

I’m an award-winning wedding stylist who works with you to develop a high quality, visually stunning and unique wedding design. I especially adore a wedding with an abundance of hand-crafted details, big florals, colour, sparkle and a lot of love!

KATE_CULLEN_IMG2

I can assist your styling plans from day one with an initial mood board and colour palette onwards; or I can pick up your ideas further along the line, help you source your suppliers and bring everything to life. Hand-painted silk ribbons and linens are also my speciality and are available to hire or buy in my online shop.  I have an addiction to colour and an obsession over detail – in my opinion there is no element of your wedding too tiny to style beautifully or turn into a stunning work of art.

Testimonial:
“Kate was brilliant from the word go – from initially hiring a few items from her, to
having her full styling package I couldn’t have done it without her. She worked so
hard, not just physically, but was an emotional support and so creative. She turned a
few random ideas I had into an amazing venue. Transforming a bare and boring hall
to a beautiful room that anyone would have been proud of to use! She worked
incredibly hard and had such brilliant vision!”

In the midst of our spring Open Weekends!

spring_open_weekend_004

Another Open Weekend is behind us – the sun shone, the visitors smiled and the tipis looked absolutely beautiful!

The brilliantly talented team of stylists that joined us brought their own interpretations of the ‘rustic-luxe’ theme, and their ideas complemented each others beautifully.  With our old friend Jan from Devon Vintage China, and new acquaintances Natalie from Meadowsweet Vintage and Elle from Inspire Hire (complete with Kate Cullen linen, Oyster & Pearl stationery and a chandelier!), we were surrounded by creativity.

spring_open_weekend_007

Dressing and styling of the tipis wouldn’t have been complete without the glorious blooms supplied by dear Jess from West Dorset Wedding Flowers by the Poundbury Florist.  From gypsophila to orchids and everything in between, her beautiful floristry complimented the stylist’s work superbly.

spring_open_weekend_001

The infinitely generous and accommodating South West Event Hire supplied tableware and chairs, and did a fair bit of to-ing and fro-ing for us on set up day – thank you once again Gordon!

spring_open_weekend_005

Visitors needing advice and ideas on catering were in for a treat with Dartmoor Kitchen in the tipis – fresh from their Wedding Industry Award win.  We were also treated to a selection of mouth watering Tom’s Pies and an enormous carrot cake to keep the team’s energy levels up over the weekend.

All of the tipi loveliness was once again expertly captured by Sarah Lauren Photography (see above), the tipi wedding expert photographer and all round legend! Thank you so much Sarah.

spring_open_weekend_006

Things would have been somewhat uncomfortable without Premier Luxury Loos, and the plushest facilities available on four wheels – they certainly contributed to the ‘luxe’ element of the weekend, completely dismissing even a hint of rustic!

Finally, on to our goody bags, and this year they were the best yet, packed with offers and samples. With treats from Wed Magazine, The Little Wedding Helper, Oakwood Soaperie, Cloud Nine Marshmallows, Wildflower Favours, Paper Tree and Bespoke Confetti – all our brides to be left with a smile.

spring_open_weekend_003

And the fun isn’t over yet – for anyone who couldn’t make it to Darts Farm, this year we have a second spring Open Weekend at Burford Garden Company in the Cotswolds on 18th and 19th April.  With a new dream team of suppliers, we will be joined by Kate Cullen (styling), Acacia Floristry, Gilded Linens, Things By Laura, Parsnip Mash, Whitehouse Event Crockery and James Darling Photography.

Exciting Year Ahead for Whitehouse

WHITEHOUSE_GALLERY_6_1055_1400px

2014 was a successful (and very busy!) year for Whitehouse and 2015 has already started with a bang! So with a number of new developments to the business and new ranges due to be added throughout the next 12 months, we thought we’d give you a run down of what’s to come.

As you may have noticed, we have launched a brand new website for 2015. With a fresh look and improved functionality, the new site has been designed to make it easier for clients to locate and obtain information on the ideal products for their event. Featuring our full range of crockery, tableware, glassware and cutlery, along with fantastic images and detailed product information, we are hopeful that clients will benefit from the easier enquiry and ordering process from Whitehouse.

We have a number of new lines planned for 2015, the first of which is the Sienna range of chargers. These stunning round charger plates come in bronze, black, red, green and purple and make the perfect compliment to a table for a special event, or even as an alternative serving plate. Available in quantities of up to 500 in each colour, the Sienna range (shown in the image below) is the perfect addition to our existing lines of round and square charger plates.

SIENNA_RANGE_2015

Following the overwhelming success of our first cutlery range in 2014, we will this year be expanding the range, initially with a line of gold cutlery. Also coming soon (Spring 2015), we will be adding to our ever popular glassware range with a new sleek and contemporary Italian collection.

The past year has taken us all over the country delivering the finest in event crockery for events such as gala dinners, exclusive launch parties, private dinner parties, weddings and corporate functions. From London to Edinburgh, Cardiff to Glasgow and multiple destinations in between, our crockery, glassware and cutlery have been hired by clients far and wide. We’re proud to provide the UK catering and event industries with “something special and unique” and our passion for quality crockery, tableware, glassware and cutlery sourced from around the world really does help to make a special dining occasion stand out from the crowd. We have a number of high profile events already in the 2015 diary that we are *very* excited about…watch this space for updates or follow us on Twitter here.
