table hire for events

OK, so you can be forgiven if table linen is not right at the top of your priority list when it comes to the various elements that you need to organise for your event. That’s fair enough, but it’s certainly a good idea to get this organised well in advance along with your table hire for events – the last thing you want to be doing in the lead up to a busy event is having to organise your table linen and other hire equipment at the last minute – after all, we’re pretty sure that you’ll have plenty of other stuff to sort!

When we talk about table linen, we mean items such as tablecloths, napkins and even table runners. Indeed, the items that are laid onto your tables before you put any tableware on there. A lot of round and trestle tables in the UK hire market really do need to have table linen on them to smarten them up. That’s not to say that the tables are in bad condition, but due to the popularity of these items, and the fact that they are always out on hire, mean that scratches can occur.

As a result, combine the hire of tables with linen, just to make doubly sure that your event tables are going to look great. And don’t worry, there are plenty of event table hire and table linen hire companies out there, of which easyEventhire is a leader.

Like anything else, it’s not the case that one type of table linen suits every event, and remember, as well as different styles, there are plenty of different sizes of tablecloths available, to suit different sizes of table hire for events!

So, let’s take a look at some of the main types of events where tablecloths and napkins would be used.

Traditional Weddings

Classic traditional weddings always call for crisp, clean table linen, normally in white or cream. Table linen in these neutral colours provides an elegant backdrop for the wedding tables. There’s normally a top table for the happy couple and their immediate family, which is normally rectangular at the front of the reception room. And, for all the other guests, you’ll generally find round tables are in use, and so choose your linen accordingly.

Just search ‘table and chair hire near me’, have a look at what tables are available, and the company’s website, like easyEventhire, will normally give you a guide as to what size and shape of tablecloth will fit the particular tables you have chosen.

Corporate events

Throughout the UK, there are a multitude of corporate events that take place, with most calling not for white or ivory cloths, but more for black as the go-to colour of choice. Black tablecloths and matching napkins certainly do provide a professional and stylish look and finish, and these are available in large quantities right here at easyEventhire.

By the same token, some companies will look to match up the colour of their table linen with their branding or company logo, so vibrant colours such as greens, pinks, golds and many others are also in demand.

Asian weddings

Characterised by their lavish look and finish, Asian weddings are fantastic occasions which also need table linen. The colour gold is, of course, synonymous with luxury, and so gold tablecloths and napkins are often the order of the day.


For sports VIP lounges and other hospitality events and occasions, grey is the new black! Grey tablecloths and napkins certainly do look great, and you can accentuate this neutral colour with coloured tableware such as coloured water glasses and jugs, for instance, along with a whole host of other table and venue decor.

Very much on-trend at the moment in this sector is table hire for events without any table linen at all – there are quite a few tables in the market which have melamine table tops, alleviating the need for tablecloths, which are certainly also worth checking out.

Whatever type of event you are organising, and wherever it is, you need to make sure that you are dealing with a linen hire company who will provide what you need in a crisp, clean and pressed condition, in the quantities you need and all matching. easyEventhire, for instance, provides this nationwide, offering you a seamless hire experience from start to finish.
