Whether you’re hosting your event in an outdoor marquee or completely alfresco, at Allens Hire we can offer a full range of catering equipment, furniture rentals and garden furniture hire to suit any outdoor event in London or in the Southampton region.
From BBQs to patio heaters, garden furniture to umbrellas, our team of experts can provide everything you need to ensure that your outdoor event is a success – but before you start planning what equipment you need to hire, it’s first worth thinking about the following things:
- How many guests are you hoping to attend your outdoor event?
- Does your outdoor space provide any equipment, or will you need to hire everything?
- Do you have access to electricity and water?
- Are you planning to provide food, and if so will it be a three-course meal, buffet-style feast or canapes?
- Are you planning on providing further entertainment for your guests that will need to be taken into consideration?
Once you have a clearer idea about the above, you will be in a much better position to start thinking about what outdoor furniture, catering equipment and amenities you will need to hire for your garden party or outdoor event.
First of all, you will need to ensure that you provide enough outdoor seating to cater for all your guests – as even guests planning to dance long into the night will want a break at some point. To give your garden party a homely feeling, why not think about hiring lounge furniture? Alternatively, if you need a lightweight seating solution that is easily moveable, our range of café culture chairs are ideal for both indoors and outdoors.
You can’t host a garden party or outdoor event without providing your guests with some fabulous food, but if you’d rather avoid slaving away in the kitchen why not keep your friends and family happy by hiring an industrial-sized BBQ to cook everything from burgers to fresh fish?
With any luck you’ll be graced with good weather, but as we all know; you can never completely rule out rainfall in Britain. So, to ensure your event isn’t a washout, hire a gazebo for your guests to keep dry under. Or, if you’re relatively confident that the sun will make an appearance, hire a large parasol to shelter any of your guests who want to seek a bit of shade during the midday sun!
