Your personal checklist for event equipment hire

No matter what type of event you may be planning, whether it’s a wedding reception or a corporate banquet, it’s always an important aspect of your event to make it as memorable as possible and that’s where event equipment hire takes the lead.

Every event planner has dealt with this in the past to create a one of a kind event hiring everything from the basics to the wacky and wonderful. So for all you novices out there, this blog is aimed at making it as simple as possible.

No1. Chair hire

It’s a great way to start and is the most basic part of event equipment hire. Choose the chair you want to use, one that fits in well with your colour scheme and theme. Also make sure you hire the maximum amount you will need. See our inspiration page for ideas of stunning Chivari chairs and gold Napoleon chairs. http://www.eventhireonline.co.uk/inspirations/

No2. Table hire

Consider your event type, for example if you’re holding a drinks reception you will not need banqueting tables. However, if you are holding a dinner, you will need to consider your seating plan. Make sure you know how many people you can seat at the size table you have chosen to ensure you have room for everyone.

No3. Kitchen equipment hire

Not everyone will need to consider this when looking into event equipment hire, especially if you have caterers or are in a fully functional venue. If you are an event professional and need to look into kitchen equipment hire, start with a full discussion with your caterers or chefs to ensure you are ordering the correct equipment for the amount of people to serve.

No4. Garden furniture hire

Do you have an outside space and don’t really know what to do with it? There are some fantastic ideas using really versatile equipment such as wooden garden tables, parasols and benches, deck chairs or even bean bags. A theme which is growing in popularity in the event hire industry these past few years and creates an urban feel would be coloured oil drums and rustic furniture.

No5. Centrepiece hire and event styling

There are endless possibilities when it comes to centrepieces and styling as everyone’s vision of their event is so different. The easiest thing to do is book in a meeting with your event planner or hire company (if you can) to discuss with them exactly what you are looking for. See if they can give you any ideas or inspiration to help with your equipment hire with a brief from you. See some ideas of creations from us in the past.


Don’t forget your event equipment should reflect the right image and theme you desire and you are in charge of the final decisions no matter what you choose. If you would like to speak to one of our event stylist professionals you can call us on 01708 335 184 or email us at hello@tehcltd.co.uk
