We also have decor items available for hire too. We’re thrilled you’ve decided to visit us - please browse our site to discover what we’re all about.

About Us

I have always had a love for all things vintage and have collected vintage, retro and antique items for years. When my 30th birthday came around, I wanted a 1930's themed party, with costumes, music and, of course, an Afternoon Tea. I scoured charity shops, car boots and also had lots of people keen to give their pre - loved (but sadly rarely used) crockery a good home. After my party all this crockery needed a new purpose and Tatty Lulu's was born! We can provide a basic crockery hire service, source themed items, supply décor and party decorations and even set up for your big day. We have supplied and set up for weddings, birthdays, corporate events Hen Dos and more! See 'Our Services' section for more information.
