There’s one simple reason why our range of tableware hire online here at Event Hire UK is so popular with event professionals around the country. It’s because almost every event that takes place involves some form of catering and, therefore, it’s inevitable that crockery, cutlery and glassware hire will be required, either one of these product types or all three together, depending upon the event itself.

If we take a look at some different event types, we’ll be able to see how this works in practice.  Take a corporate hospitality event behind the scenes at a large sports event.  This is a prime example of where crockery, cutlery and glassware would be required in large quantities and, let’s face it, of a certain standard.

Sponsorship deals are expensive for major events and so the event organizers will want to be providing clients, sponsors and VIP guests with the very best experience in the sponsor lounges.  Not only will they need to hire furniture such as chairs and tables, along with matching linen, but also hire tableware to place onto these banqueting tables. 

Our Ranges Of Luxury Tableware Hire Are On-Trend

The higher the profile of the event, the more important it becomes to choose wisely.  The ‘standard’ go-to choice for many events is white china, stainless steel cutlery and plain glassware, and there’s no doubt that this budget tableware does a job.  In this example of the sponsor lounge, however, our advice would be to check out our ranges of luxury tableware – OK, so it costs a little more, but it’s certainly well worth that extra investment.  You want everything about your event to be luxurious and impressive, from the quality of your food through to the quality of your tableware.  

Why settle for standard stainless steel cutlery when you can have gold cutlery or copper cutlery?  Why settle for plain glassware when you can have gold and silver rimmed wine glasses and Champagne flutes, for instance.  And why settle for plain white crockery when you can hire coupe plates, coloured stoneware plates and patterned crockery, all of which helps you to stand out from the crowd.  The way you present your food and drink at your event is all-important, and helps to create that positive first impression you are looking to achieve.

Budget Tableware Hire Available In Large Numbers

We’ve already mentioned that not only do we offer luxury event tableware but also offer standard, more budget-friendly tableware and this certainly has a place in the market.  Not only is it a cost-effective option, but is normally available in large quantities. Our ranges of Lubiana crockery or Royal Doulton crockery, for instance, are available in their thousands of pieces, enabling us to be able to service multiple events at the same time.  For arena events such as large scale Christmas parties, this budget tableware comes into its own, enabling event organizers and their catering teams to be able to service large numbers of people in a short period of time.  For events such as these, we can also operate a behind-the-scenes operation for you which is especially useful if you are holding back-to-back party nights every weekend throughout December, for instance.  Please speak to us about this.

The Complete Event Tableware Rental Solution

So, in terms of the range and quantities of tableware for hire, we’re confident that we’ve got everything covered.  But what else is important to you when it comes to event tableware rental?

Well, you’ll want to ensure that the condition of your tableware is spot-on.  After all, the last thing you want is for your crockery, cutlery and glassware items to arrive at site, and you need to start checking and polishing them – you don’t have time for that!  Event Hire UK operates strategically positioned distribution centres around the country, with each one equipped with a state-of-the-art industrial washing machine.  This means that all our tableware hire items are thoroughly washed, checked and reliably counted in between hires to ensure that our clients receive the very best tableware, right first time. Our tableware will arrive with you in crates, and you need to ensure that you return the tableware in these same crates, otherwise replacement fees will be charged.

At the same time as supplying tableware for events, we can also help you out after your event in terms of washing up.  Fundamentally, as with all our other hire equipment, you need to ensure that you return the tableware to us after use in the same condition that you received it – in other words, clean!

We realize, of course, that not all venues have access to washing up facilities, or it might be that you simply want to save yourself a job!  After all catering events are busy (often frantic!) occasions and so afterwards we’re sure that all you’ll want to do is put your feet up.  With this in mind, we also offer a return-dirty service.  This is where you can send your tableware back to us in a dirty state, and we’ll take care of the cleaning for you, for a small additional fee.  Simply ensure that the on-page checkbox is ticked on the product page when you are selecting your items, and we’ll take care of this cleaning for you when the items arrive back with us.  All we ask is that you scrape the crockery and cutlery of any excess food and swill out any glassware and put it all back in the crates.  Yet another example of Event Hire UK providing you with the complete tableware hire solution.
