Furniture hire in the UK is actually on the rise with more and more event professionals and venues offering suppliers and vendors wedding furniture, corporate event styling and much more. What strikes us is that people don’t really know what the differences are between furniture hire and event styling services, so we thought we would make sense of the blurred lines and concentrate on the event styling accessories that are available for wedding styling and corporate event styling.
Poseur table décor
When it comes to drinks receptions, marketing events or just bowl food you will find yourself needing poseur tables for your guests to use. Poseur tables do not need to be boring; in fact, poseur table décor is a perfect example of corporate event styling; with 75% of corporate events being a standing occasion, it’s a perfect way to incorporate small but special touches into the event. Furniture hire UK would cover the hire of the tables themselves but corporate event styling would be the centrepieces or sashes used to add those special touches.
Artificial flower arrangements
Artificial flower arrangements are wonderful and can really look like the real thing for just a fraction of the price and are often used for wedding centrepieces, walls, backdrops and more. Artificial flower arrangements are making huge leaps of popularity in the furniture hire UK market. They are also often used in corporate event styling, maybe on not such a large scale, but they are perfect to incorporate colour and texture into the event. Whilst these particular items are an event styling item, some of the ways in which they are used in events come under the furniture hire UK category; such as stage hire, table hire and event chairs.
Lantern hire is popular for both wedding styling and corporate event styling and can also incorporate other special touches like candles, artificial flowers, and much more. They can be used as poseur table décor, wedding centrepiece hire or just as event decoration, they are so versatile. The purpose of lantern hire is usually to give an atmosphere using candles or fairy lights; they are also often used to mark event entrances and hallways. They really can change the entire design of a room or outdoor space. Lantern hire is specifically an event styling item and would not necessarily come under a furniture hire UK category.
Charger plates are a part of an event designer’s toolbox to design a place setting. Charger plates are not used for a function other than to decorate an event table; so don’t go thinking they are to eat from as they are often removed from a place setting before a starter or appetiser is served. They are commonly used for both wedding decoration and at corporate functions; more or less in any situation you are being served a sit-down meal. Charger plates often create an additional and special touch to the table for guests by using a colour or clear charger.
