How to host a family event

31 Jul 17

Getting the family together for a big event can be a fun and satisfying experience, however, it does include a lot of organisation. So, whether you’re planning on celebrating a mile stone birthday, an anniversary, a large family Christmas or a big family reunion we can help you hire what you need to ensure your event goes off without a hitch.

At Allens Hire, we offer catering equipment and furniture hire for your family event. Hiring items such as glasses, china, chairs and tables can be a cost effective and convenient way to ensure you have all your party essentials.

Furniture hire for a family event

Whether you are planning on having the event at your home or in a venue, you can hire furniture such as chairs, tables and linen. Hiring chairs is a much easier solution than purchasing new ones, as you don't have to worry about storage or about keeping them in good condition. Popular chairs for family gatherings include the Mahogany Framed Banqueting Chair, Folding Chairs and French Grey Chantilly chair.

Chairs need tables, so, we have a wide selection of tables in different shapes and sizes. From square to rectangle and round, our tables can accommodate different seating arrangements comfortably.

Tables always look better with linen. Our linen collection comes in an array of colours and materials. Choosing your colour is important as it can act as the back drop to your event theme. Our most popular linen include standard linen, Kensington table linen and Expressions. Don't worry if the table linen gets dirty, we will handle that when it's returned to us.

At Allens Hire, we can deliver and pick up any furniture you hire, whether you live in London, the Home Counties or the South coast. We also have a pickup and drop off option, if that is preferred.

Glassware hire for a family party

A party needs drinks and drinks need glasses. Unless you regularly hold large parties it is unlikely that you will have enough glasses for all your guests. Hiring glassware from Allen's Hire comes with the convenience of not having to wash up. All you need to do is put the glasses back in the box they came in, and we'll take care of the rest.

Our top glassware recommendation for a family party include:

Our glassware comes with an option to deliver or you can pop by one of our locations and pick them up yourself. We are located in Hounslow, West London and Eastleigh, Southampton.

Hire china for a family event

Does your family event require extra plates, cutlery and cups? Then take a look at our range of china for hire. As with the glassware above, if you hire tableware from Allens you won't have to do the washing up. Hiring china, also means you can have something a little different. Of course, what you choose will depend on your event and the theme. Here are some ideas:
