Décor Hire Check List

Décor Hire Check List

hired decor for events A while ago we heard a story of a lady planning her outdoor wedding, who was disappointed when, after buying whole lot of cute paper cups, found out that it would have been cheaper to hire real glasses.

Many people feel the need to spend thousands buying décor items for their events, however, it is much cheaper to hire! Often, people do not know how much is really available for hire, but you can really hire anything for your events – glasses, table cloths, and even bigger furniture pieces.

The best thing to do is to give your decorator or décor hire company a list of things you might be interested in, ask them to give you a quote or price list for each item, and then pick what best fits your budget.

Below is a list of décor items that you may want for your event.



  • Seating plan board/sign
  • Seating cards (theme based)
  • Sign in/guest book
  • Directional signage and other theme based signs
  • Draping
  • Lighting
  • Flowers & vases
  • Stage backdrops
  • Murals
  • Decor pieces to fit the theme (speak to your décor hire company, they will usually have an assortment of items to suit your theme)
  • Photo booth backdrops and props



  • Linen/table cloths/runners
  • Napkins
  • Napkin rings
  • Centerpieces (ask what they have to offer/suggest for your theme)
  • Candles
  • Confetti/glitter
  • Crockery
  • Cutlery
  • Glassware
