What’s your preferred theme & colour?

For a seated meal the overall look and feel of the tables is an important part of your event. Floral centre pieces, glassware, crockery, cutlery and table linen can all play an important part. If you’re a little stuck on ideas please let us know and we can show what others have done. Otherwise let us know your style and we’ll sort the rest. Your tables will be laid up and ready for your guests.

Everything in place & on time

Instead of dealing with multiple vendors why not have us deal with all the vendors. It won’t cost you any extra. We’ll then deal with all the necessary paperwork and site visits. You’ll deal with one person and get one bill.

Cost
Hiring your equipment through Home Gurr’own won’t cost you extra. We receive a small trade to trade discount which goes towards paying for extra staff and ensuring your equipment is on time and in place.
