As we approach the busy Christmas season (honestly, where does the time go?!), we’ve gathered up the Reece’s team and pulled together our favourite event hire items that can help make any friend or family get together big - or small! - run as smoothly as possible. Because, let’s face it, the lead up to December 25th can be stressful - and we all need a helping hand to get through the silly season!
Whether your gathering is held inside or outdoors, the Christmas table will be the focal point of your celebration. Besides its obvious functional purpose it’s a place for family and friends to sit at and relax - or bicker over the last prawn or slice of pavlova.
But if you’ve found yourself planning for more guests than usual or are wanting to go the extra mile this year, why not consider a few of these ideas that will really bring your Christmas table to life.
Tables, tables and more tables! (And chairs too)
If you’re wondering how you’re going to squeeze everyone in, Reece’s Event Hire has a fantastic selection of tables to suit celebrations of all sizes. A few options to consider:
For an intimate vibe where guests can easily converse, why not opt for a round table? Our white plastic banquet table is sturdy, ideal for up to 10 people and the perfect solution if space is a little tight.
There are several options to choose from, but if you’re after a simple extension for an existing rectangular table you can’t go past the simple wood banquet. Add matching tablecloths to create continuity between tables – our Banquet Table Cloth White is a classic, neutral choice that will look beautiful when styled with festive decorations and your main meal!
We also think our dark rustic banquet is a stunning choice if wanting to create an extra special vibe for your Christmas celebration. We simply adore this piece which has been upcycled in our old integrated marquee flooring, and recommend pairing it with either our Dark Oak Bon Bentwood or Cross Back Beach Walnut chairs – or a mix of both, as featured below.
We think everyone will want to sit at ‘the kid’s table’ with this gorgeous setting! Our Wood Children’s Trestle Table combined with a colourful selection of our children’s plastic chairs is a fun and festive way to keep the smaller friends and family members happy.
You won’t have to spend too much time rounding up the troops with our stunning range of chairs that are guaranteed to draw guests to your table. In addition to our Dark Oak Bon Bentwood and Cross Back Beach Walnut (featured above), a few of the Reece’s team’s favourites that are perfectly suited to Christmas celebrations are:
Vine: Available to hire in either black or white, this modern composite chair will add a touch of sophistication to your gathering.
Black Padded Sydney Banquet: Also ideal for a more modern or formal setting.
Folding: This classic, white chair is compact yet stylish, and is an affordable option if wanting to cater to a large number of guests. It’s also perfectly suited to both indoor and outdoor celebrations.
Save yourself the trouble of finding matching plates and cutlery or the right size platter to display your beautifully dressed ham. Reece’s Event Hire has Perth’s widest selection of catering items, linen, crockery, glassware and cutlery – and we want your Christmas Day to run as smoothly as possible. Why not consider hiring:
Our durable tablecloths, linen and napery are of excellent quality and come in either black or white, making them the perfect backdrop for colourful decorations, flower arrangements and – most importantly! - your Christmas spread. Our tablecloths are available in a wide variety of sizes to suit both round and rectangular tables.
You can’t enjoy a delicious meal or beverage without these unsung heroes! Reece’s Event Hire takes pride in selecting only the very best quality glassware, crockery and cutlery – but we think the perfect option when wanting to keep your Christmas celebration as easy as possible (and solve the problem of mismatched table settings!) is to simply hire our three-course package – comprising 12 items per guest including a variety of high-quality Zwiesel glasses, Dudson plates, Amalfi cutlery - and even a linen napkin!
At the end of the day, Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas if there wasn’t a minor disagreement or two over who’s going to do the washing up. But this year you won’t need to worry – let the Reece’s Event Hire team tackle those dirty plates and cutlery for a small charge! Click here to find out more about our special Christmas offer!
Whether your lunch or dinner is a traditional roast with all the trimmings, a classic Aussie BBQ or an all-day grazing affair – our enormous range of catering items for hire has something to suit your needs. Like:
Ham stand – what a great way to showcase your Christmas ham!
Prep bench – this stainless-steel bench provides both extra storage and another place for prepping the big feast.
Urn (4 gallon) – save time with making teas and coffees and invite your guests to take care of it themselves. This 20 litre capacity urn is a real lifesaver!
Chafing dishes in two styles – a practical way to keep food hot while adding a touch of theatre to your celebration.
Whether it occurs before, after or even during the main meal – it’s highly likely your guests will want to be outdoors at some stage during your Christmas celebration.
As Perth summers can be unforgiving, it’s important that ample shade is provided for your guests – but that doesn’t have to mean hiring a large marquee, unless you have the room or numbers. Why not consider one or more of our market umbrellas which can look simply stunning dotted around the garden. We also have a great selection of outdoor settings available in case you need extra seating – and we think these options are perfect for Christmas Day:
Vine café package – the perfect choice if already hiring our Vine chairs for the Christmas table.
Industrial Pipe and Timber Picnic Setting – this package will suit a more relaxed affair, and even comes with a 3m market umbrella. One setting can sit 3-4 people on either side and is 1760mm in length.
Florence Modular Wicker Setting in Sand – one of our most loved items, this lounge setting is the ultimate chillout zone, ideal for post-Christmas lunch relaxing!
There are so many other items available to hire that can make your Christmas run as smoothly as possible. The Reece’s Even Hire team is only too happy to work with you to determine what you may need - so whatever type of Christmas Day you’re planning, big or small, we’ve got you covered!
