vintage mismatched china rentals in Washington DC

We have a passion for vintage china and  have hand-picked the  hundreds of plates and tea cups in our inventory.  We only select gorgeous patterns that we’d want to use  on our own dining table.  You won’t find any plain-everyday plates here!  Most of our plates have a floral pattern that dates from pre-1950 and are trimmed in gold or silver rims.  We specialize in mismatched settings and if you select us to set up the china at your event, we will ensure  the plates and beautifully compliment our salad and bread and butter plates placed on top of them.

We want to make renting easy and offer delivery services, shipping, or even for you to come pick up the china from us.  Just ask us if you want a certain piece that is not listed below–chances are we have it in our extensive inventory.  If you live outside the DC area, we offer delivery services in the surrounding states and ship our china to the East Coast.  Please contact us to inquire about shipping rates.

Terms: All rental china must be thoroughly rinsed and dried before it is returned or picked up by Something Vintage Rentals.  Rentals are for 24 hour periods only.  China must never be placed in the dishwasher or heated.

Fall is finally here and Something Vintage is going to showcase some great autumn ideas for Fall every Friday for the next few weeks.  So sit back and enjoy the pretties and hopefully get inspired by some of these ideas.

These pumpkins are made with brass thumbtacks.  I love the surprising texture.  Would be awesome sprinkled throughout a reception.
