Here’s How to Hire Decor and Event Furniture with Ease

Looking to hire decor and event furniture for your event? You’ve come to the right place.

We’ll share a quote with you upon request, but in the meantime why don’t you review our guide on how to go about it?

Getting the wrong furniture and decor for your theme, venue and weather conditions can be a real bummer and even spell doom for your event.

We’d therefore like to share handy tips with you on the simplest ways to hire decor and event furniture for your next event.

The venue and event layout

The first thing to do before your hire any decor and event furniture is to understand your venue and also have an event layout plan. These are the only guides you need to make the right furniture and decor selection.

However before you commit to any style of tents, event furniture or decor, confirm that it’s indeed available for hire on your preferred dates.

First make out a checklist of what you need, capturing the following details;

  • Type of decor and furniture – it should match the space type (indoor or outdoor)
  • Style of decor and furniture – the furniture should fit in with your theme or style preference
  • Event layout plan – check dimensions to ensure the furniture will fit the event layout plan

Steps to hire decor and event furniture

Once you’re done with identifying and selecting, below are the steps to follow to ensure you hire decor and event furniture with ease.

  • Identify event hire companies with items that are exactly or close to your needs
  • Inquire whether they have enough quantities for your numbers
  • Confirm availability, usage and hire terms 
  • Visit the location physically to vet the quality and cleanliness
  • Confirm pricing and payment terms
  • Some companies may require you to sign a contract to manage liabilities in case of loss or damage.

Once done, narrow down to the event hire company with the perfect fit—clean, well-maintained furniture in your ideal style, quantities, availability, and budget.

If hiring a dining table, find out the table top dimensions and height. Confirm how many guests can sit per table in comfort.

Another valuable point is to consider the menu type. If you’ll lay a proper feast or elaborate table decor, consider getting wider tables or increasing the spacing between seats. 

You should also find out whether the tables stand at the same height when joined together.

This is especially so for handmade furniture. For chairs, select the ones matching your event needs. Most important, though, ensure they’re comfortable.

Remember: Seats can influence your table layouts if they are wide. So in case, you select such chairs for hire, you’ll need to reduce the number of seating spaces per table.

Consider the weather

Perhaps you want an outdoor setup but what if it rains, what happens then? The ideal plan would be to have a contingency for tent cover.

You and the planner or event hire company can agree two or three days before the event on how to adjust the decor and event furniture hire plan.

#Tables

Farmhouse dining tables

We recommend these banquet tables for specific themes like rustic, country, or vintage. These tables don’t need dressing unless it’s applied to heighten your decor effect.

With them, you can use large floral centerpieces, boho placemats, charger plates or napkins to enhance your decor.

Round tables

There are two types of round tables; the wood ones which are handmade locally, and the plastic imported.

They’re all pretty affordable, flexible for any type of decor and easy to transport, it all depends on your event layout plan.

Rectangle tables

Just like the round tables, the rectangle tables come in a wooden local handmade version and the plastic imported. You can use them to create various table layouts like family, boardroom, classroom or u-shape.

They take up more of the centerpieces since you might have to use two or three but they deliver a unique look and feel for any event.

Cocktail tables

If you’re having a networking event, your best choice would be to work with cocktail tables. Ours are round and rectangle, giving you the option of a modern or rustic look.

Because they’re mostly for networking events, the centerpiece and any table decor is a minimal floral arrangement or candles.
