Private Hiring. It’s time has come.
26th January 2017
You’d think, wouldn’t you, that it would be easy enough to keep a few glasses in a cupboard, dust them off and then wash up. You’re not having all that many people over for your 40th / silver wedding / fundraising tea party / summer do. Why would you hire? Isn’t that a bit, you know, poncy?
No, it’s not. It’s very sensible. Take glasses. You get the right glass – flute or coupe for champagne, martini for…martini, beautiful Burgundy if you need it, hi balls, tumblers – delivered clear and sparkling in sturdy crates for easy service. At the end of your party, just empty the glasses and put them back in the crates. Same with plates – scrape and return. No storage problems, no washing up, more enjoyment.
Hiring serving equipment makes excellent sense as well. Doing a large-ish buffet? Chafing dishes are your saviour (and yes, we wash those up too). The lovely glass jug above is perfect for mixing mocktails or cocktails, looks elegant and stylish – but you won’t need one very often so hiring is the answer. If you’re doing bowl food or a large afternoon tea, most of us don’t have the right size bowls or multiple cake stands tucked away in our kitchen, so hiring what you need is a practical solution.
Hiring for private events has come of age.
