Wash up & Care

Hiring a package from Alice’s Tea Party is all about enjoying your special occasion and although we ask you to appreciate these pieces are fragile we don’t want you ending up worried about the washing up, so leave it to me! if you can clear the plates, rinse out cups and teapots with warm water and then just pack them back in the packaging as delivered I will do the washing up when I get it home.

Please do not put any of these beautiful items in the microwave, oven or dishwasher.
