Crockery of the Month – April 19

Hello, and welcome back to the second edition of Crockery of the Month, Our first month saw the rise of the Eliza charger plate which captured the hearts of the public, with many of you being in utter disbelief that it wasn’t one of our most popular plates. To return with a bang, we’ve chosen a beautiful plate which, though a lot simpler than Eliza, is equally as exquisite. Remember, if you confirm an order for any of the plates in this set, you get 15% off! I know, I know, you just want to find out what it is. Okay, I will put you out of your misery…

This month’s choice is…Isabella!


Please, stay calm. You’ll have plenty of the time at the end of the presentation to gasp, stare in awe and applaud to your heart’s content. Isabella may seem like a surprising choice for some, however we think that its thicker rim is the detail that has stopped it from being a go-to for those looking to rent from Whitehouse. With other crockery, its gold, silver and bronze colouring has made it brides’ favourites, considering those are the colours that add that little bit of extra shine to a white wedding. Isabella takes a slightly different approach to the popular chargers, such as Daisy, because it has a unique raised design and matt colours. Rather than fading into a theme, it demands attention – and with good reason! Expertly crafted and fantastically styled, Isabella has shone in the past, proving itself time and again that it deserves to be highlighted. If you still aren’t convinced, then keep reading to see what kind of trouble our Isabella chargers have been getting into and which colour pallets can work alongside them.



This dark, enigmatic shoot truly piqued our interest when we first received the photos back in 2018. Partnered with Amie Bone Flowers and Bubble food, the final outcome was something we’d never seen before, or ever come across since. Unique pear-shaped glass structures sit atop perfectly crafted food items, looking more like art than a meal. Reflecting the red theme that surrounds it, Isabella resides comfortably in this unusual scene, showing off its raised design alongside the other intricate textures and materials.


Tilly from Whitehouse said this about Isabella:
“I think this plate is severely under appreciated. The thick, raised rim reminds me of ancient crockery, something that might have been used at a royal gathering, whilst the various colours and clear centre keep it modern.”



The colours in the Squaremeal images may simply seem like different shades of red, however there are a multitude of tones that all work together with Isabella to create an eye-catching visual treat.

In a slightly more intimate setting, this event took our breath away with its tiny, exquisite details, keeping it minimal yet not monotonous. With our Elizabeth glassware range glinting in the candlelight, Isabella matches the tones and enhances the sense of regality. This low shot makes us feel like a part of the tablescape, making it feel even more intimate and truly allowing us to understand the beauty of the scene.


Toned down, but with sparks of colour, this look highlights the gold on our Isabella plates in a more vivid fashion. The fantastic part is that the brightest tones actually come from natural sources: the foliage and candle.



If you think that Isabella might be perfect for your wedding or event, then just email us a quote with ISABELLA15 to get 15% off any Isabella charger plate.

But remember, there’s no time to hesitate, since the discount only applies if you confirm and pay the deposit in the month of April!

Crockery of the Month – March 19

What on earth is this?

Welcome to this wonderful new section of the Whitehouse blog that we are calling ‘crockery of the month.’ (It’s not as dreary as it sounds,) We are beginning this as a way to highlight some beautiful pieces within our collection that we believe aren’t getting the attention they truly deserve. Some will seem outlandish, and others remarkably simple, but hopefully this monthly blog will help to guide you towards options that you may not have considered before. On top of that, we will be offering a discount on the charger plates being show if you put in an order within the month it is being promoted. We would definitely call that a win-win situation. Therefore, if you are planning a wedding, or simply looking to get inspired, then I suggest you keep scrolling…

This month’s choice is…   The Eliza Charger Plate!


So why did we choose our ‘Eliza’ range to highlight this month? Well, we love all of our crockery equally, but Eliza is a charger plate that is exquisitely designed whilst, unfortunately, being underappreciated by our client base. First being featured at Whitehouse in March 2018, its regal design is often overlooked as too ‘busy’ by many planners, perhaps thinking that it is going to clash against existing colour pallets. However, in person, Eliza adds a level of subtle design that coordinates expertly with a more down-to-earth wedding, whilst also retaining its own unique charm.

But what is a charger plate?

If you’re new to the exciting world of crockery, you might be asking ‘what on earth is a charger plate?’ We generally use charger plates as a form of placemat underneath the plate or bowl you would actually use to serve your food. Found in English and Scottish texts in the 13th century, its name derives from both the term ‘chargeour’ meaning large plate, and the Latin verb ‘carricane’ which means to load, It’s function changed to the one we know today in the 19th century, when it started being used at formal dinners, functions and events. But enough history, let’s have a look at how the Eliza crockery can be styled for different scenarios.

Gisburne Park

These striking photographs, taken at Gisburne Park, just north of Manchester, were part of a styled shoot organised by Emily K Weddings.  Inspired by the Ribble Valley, as well as the river that runs through Gisburne Park, this shoot incorporated the blues and greens of its surroundings, whilst nodding its head to Gisburne’s grand history with the use of our gold cutlery and gold rimmed glassware. Topped off with our clear Eliza charger plate, the final look had just the right amount of detail whilst also looking fresh and clean.

Emily from Emily K Weddings said this about the clear plate:

‘I love the [Eliza clear], especially if you use a coloured table cloth or coloured charger underneath.

They’re subtle,elegant and detailed. I think they’re a great vintage look [that] don’t look as big and cluttered on the table because they’re clear.’

 If you feel especially taken with the colour pallet of this particular shoot, we have done a colour grab from Pantone© to helpyou get it exactly right.



Irnham Hall

This second shoot also happens to come from an Emily K Weddings styled shoot! Clearly Emily saw the diamond in the rough with this range of crockery. As different from the first images as you could possibly get, these Eliza pink charger plates were paired with both vibrant and muted tones, enhancing the plates and the surrounding. Torn linens, clear glassware and bare tables creates the feeling of being at an ancient royal feast, whilst the rose-gold cutlery and miniature succulents remind us that this can be a brilliantly modern look.

Shelley, who works at Whitehouse, said this about the Eliza charger plate range:
‘I think these plates have a special charm about them.
Some people would say that they’re too garish for a wedding, and they might not be for everyone,
but for a bride that wants to turn heads, this is perfect.’



This colour range is obviously much brighter than the other design, but that by no means makes it ostentatious, The pinks and blues of the plate work in conjunction with a variety of other tones, but is pulled back by the muted nature of the wood.


If you think that Eliza might be perfect for your wedding or event,

then just email us a quote with ELIZA15 to get 15% off any Eliza charger plate.

But remember, there’s no time to hesitate,

since the discount only applies if you confirm and pay the deposit in the month of March!

Golden summer ahead as Whitehouse launches gold cutlery range

Whitehouse are delighted to announce that our much anticipated new gold cutlery range has arrived! Featuring starter knife and fork, table knife and fork, teaspoon, dessert spoon, soup spoon and serving spoon, the Grace range features curved lines and intricate detail that will set off the table at any event, wedding or function. With 1000 sets of our gold cutlery range in stock, we can cater to any event, no matter how large or small.


Gold is the new silver as far as we’re concerned, and with the lighter days and evenings now upon us, golden hues add a touch of glamour to an event’s design. Hand in hand with our gold beaded Daisy charger plate and a choice of either our Amy or Cara gold rimmed glassware ranges, it’s easy to create an event look that will really sparkle with Whitehouse.

We have already received a number of enquiries about the hire of our Grace gold cutlery – as one of the few luxury event hire firms in the UK to stock it, we anticipate a golden summer ahead!

Further additions to the Whitehouse range in time for the summer include a new baby pink version (displayed below) of our ever-popular Sienna charger plate – the perfect addition to a pastel themed wedding or event.


We are also anticipating the arrival of a brand new glassware range, which is due to land with us from Italy very soon.

For further information on our new ranges, or to discuss the hire of our existing cutlery, glassware, tableware, chargers and crockery ranges, please get in touch with us. We’d be delighted to help you plan and create the perfect look for your event.
