The Dish and The Spoon was a hit at our wedding!

Tammy and Grant from the Dish and the Spoon made our big day extra special. The table settings and d茅cor were perfect for our log cabin theme, bringing a classy, vintage touch that was the wow factor for our guests as they dined. Tammy and Grant are easy and fun to work with and they work hard to ensure everything goes off smoothly! I highly recommend booking their service for your wedding or any event where you want a unique place setting, and fun factor!

Fantastic experience with The Dish and The spoon

We hired The Dish and The Spoon for a party. The dishes were lovely and because I didn't have to pick them up or clean them afterward it was a really hassle free experience. They were really helpful and had EVERYTHING I could have needed.

Life is short. Use the good china.

It鈥檚 a common phrase used to remind us to embrace the good things in life. We know that times have changed. In the interest of saving space in our homes, and saving time and effort hand washing fancy dishes and polishing silver utensils, fewer people have the desire to own full sets of china and silverware. That鈥檚 where we come in. At the Dish & the Spoon, celebrating the good things in life and making special events extra special is our passion.

The Dish & the Spoon was created by Tamara Picknell and her partner Grant Smith. The idea came about as we were searching for vintage pieces for the wedding of Grant鈥檚 daughter. We noticed that many younger people did not own heirloom dishes, nor were these lovely vintage place settings available for people to rent for the special events in their lives. Firm believers that there are some occasions in life worth celebrating in a big way, we began to build a collection of beautiful heirloom china, crystal and vintage flatware. Along the way, we met many lovely people who were thrilled to know that their heirloom china was going to be appreciated and enjoyed, rather than spend eternity in a box or china cabinet.

The feedback was incredible. It seemed there was a legitimate want for vintage china and tableware in the Calgary area. Now our collection holds enough pieces for large 300 person wedding receptions, fun and elegant tea parties, unique birthday celebrations, celebrations of life, or any other event that you want a little something special. Vintage china, stemware, and silverware are only part of what the Dish & the Spoon offers. we also have a beautiful collection of vases, unique items for table decor, bar ware,vintage linens, bar carts and 100 year old tea carts The Dish & the Spoon is very excited to help make your event a breathtaking and memorable affair.
