Vintage Bridal Soiree ~ Fairground Food and Vintage Crockery Hire

In the third of our blogs about the Vintage Bridal Soiree event, we want to talk about food and vintage crockery hire ...

Blanche from Coco Catering suggested we integrate the authentic vintage wedding theme with some fairground and circus elements to give it a modern yet historical twist on vintage.

Guests were treated to Coco Catering’s fairground themed food of mini beef burgers with hot sweet pepper relish in a sesame bun, mini chickpea, coriander and feta burgers in a sesame bun and mini hot dogs with a choice of sauces.

Coco Catering love working with clients who are passionate about food and want to make food a feature of their wedding” said Blanche, “The Vintage Bridal Soiree was a fantastic opportunity for us to be creative and demonstrate how couples can incorporate food into their wedding theme. Vintage themed weddings have become incredibly popular recently; as well as the traditional afternoon tea which has become very popular recently, couples have requested great British classics such as sausage and mash and pie and pea suppers or retro foods such as hot dogs and mini burgers. We have lots of ideas for wedding food on our website but we are always happy when clients approach us wanting bespoke menus.”

Blanche also went round with a specially made tray serving delicious sweet & salted popcorn:

... and served a delicious array of old-fashioned drinks ~ cloudy lemonade, ginger beer, cream soda, innovatively served in jam jars with straws ~ and toffee apple cocktail & candy floss cocktail, all served in beautiful vintage cups and saucers from our Hansley Beard Hire Collection:

The beautiful drinks signs were designed and produced by Lucy Ledger Designs.

We also displayed a selection of our other vintage crockery and glassware, all available to hire from our Sheffield studio:

To add to our fairground theme, I also brought along a picture from my own mum and dad’s wedding trip to Blackpool in 1963!:

Hi, I love the style! I’ve been collecting vintage crockery for years and it’s become a real passion. I’d be happy to chat to anyone about it more?
