China Hire

From weddings to charity fundraisers; whatever event you are planning in London we can provide beautiful, high quality china and tableware to perfectly suit your table setting.

Our collection of china offers a range of different designs; from contemporary to classics motifs, and blends hard-wearing designs and durability with elegance, to provide you with exceptional value whatever your china hire requirements may be.

Our William Edwards “Fresco” fine bone china collection, for example, is based on Georgian neoclassical architecture, and is perfect for a whole host of engagements - particularly afternoon teas and wedding breakfasts. The collection, which is available to rent exclusively from Allens, boasts a selection of gorgeous plates, cups and saucers, each available in a variety of colours. In addition to traditional black and white, the collection is available in turquoise, lilac, lavender and blue, and their delicate, yet durable, design is ideal for both large, and small, events. We also established a supply relationship with the iconic premium fine bone tableware Villeroy & Boch in 2017. The New Stella Villeroy & Boch range is versatile and delicately styled, so it’s perfect for all kinds of occasions. From breakfast to dinner, lunch to coffee, and already a clear favourite with our discerning caterers.

Alternatively, if you’re organising an event that includes welcome drinks, you may need canape servers and platters to greet guests with. Our range of canape platters and servers for hire  include a whole host of beautiful serving plates that will add a touch of class and sophistication to any function. Our canape collection comes in monochrome or, for those who’d like to add some colour to their tableware, there are a number of plates and side dishes in coloured and smoked glass effects.
