How to host a socially distanced event

With the event industry gradually opening back up, celebrate in style and stay safe with these tips and tricks for hosting socially distanced events. You may not be able to pull off the most large-scale and impressive events just yet, but that doesn’t mean you should let restrictions take away from the joy an event can bring. You can still protect your guests and create a memorable experience. Let us show you how.

We’ve put together a few pointers to spark some inspiration for social distancing event ideas.

Use furniture

Space it out and keep it stylish with bespoke furniture hire to turn guests heads, all whilst keeping them socially distanced. Create a spaced out seating area using our colourful velvet Dinky Armchairs and gold Carla Side Tables or dot around some Milano Poseur Tables and Perugia High Stools for a modern yet safe spot for cocktails. Need to display products, display our Console Tables in a one way system to ensure social distancing. The options are endless and our handpicked, bespoke furniture hire collection has everything you could want and more to host socially distanced events without having to compromise on style.

Take it outside

Make life easier for yourself and take it outside. An outdoor bar and personalised cocktails surrounded by spaced out al fresco dining, sounds pretty perfect to us! Our Timber Frame Bar would look great against the backdrop of a socially distanced outdoor event. Dress the space with some Tables and Benches and voila, a welcoming, functional outdoor event.

Limit numbers

Because it’s not all about big, extravagant events! Intimate events allow you to spend more time with your guests and result in a far more meaningful experience. A smaller guest list means a smaller venue and more to spend on the finishing touches. Why not up the wow factor with one of our Bars to hire. Or perhaps you want a more relaxed atmosphere? In that case, take a look at our comfortable Dexter Sofas.
