Nominee Interview: An Era Of Experience, Best Vintage Event Service Or Supplier
An Era of Experience is a travelling vintage events company. The team is a collaboration of 4 independent business owners with a passion for vintage. We have combined our talents & passions to create bespoke vintage themed parties perfect for sophisticated Hen parties, special birthday celebrations or corporate entertaining.
When we began there was nothing like Era available so we wanted to combined our skills to create an authentic interactive vintage experience which can be enjoyed by all ages. The Era Experience can be themed to our clients favourite bygone time so for instance for a 1920's/30's theme the craft workshop will teach guests how to create a flapper headband, the beauty parlour will teach the skills to create the perfect 1920s look and the china chosen for the Afternoon Tea party will come from our Art Deco collection. New for 2014 we have teamed up with The Violet Hour Cocktail bar to add an additional element to our parties, an Era themed cocktail or a full mixology masterclass.
Team Era is: Silver Sixpence in her Shoe (Craft Workshops), Bethany Jane Davies (The Vintage Beauty parlour), For the love of vintage (China Hire), And The Dish ran away with The Spoon (Bakery)
