Outdoor furniture hire for London event planner: Uptown Events

At Rio Lounge we are fortunate enough to have supplied our outdoor furniture hire to some of the UK’s top event planners. In this week’s feature we take a closer look at London-based event planner, Uptown Events. Read on to discover more about some of our collaborations with this company.  We also take a look at what an event planner’s work involves, and the advantages of working with a planner.

What does an event planner do?

An event planner will typically do the following:

– Meet with their clients; getting to know them personally to obtain a feel for their tastes and budget;

– Use their experience and expertise to assist the client in choosing a suitable venue and service providers;

– Assist with creative planning; including floor plans, decor ideas and theming for events;

– Co-ordinating logistics; planning a detailed timed itinerary of the event, including any preparation and set-up required;

– Obtain and compare quotes from venues and service providers (for example, florists, caterers, photographers and furniture hire)

– Visit and inspect venues to ensure they meet the client’s requirements, and liaise with venue staff to ensure everything runs smoothly;

– Review and monitor event costs and organise invoices and payments to suppliers.

Garden furniture hire for a Bar Mitzvah at Hendon Hall

This one is a throwback to 2017; the client chose to host their child’s Bar Mitzvah in the elegant grounds of the 18th century house, Hendon Hall. 

The selection of white rattan hire furniture looked stunning on the immaculately manicured lawn. Creating smaller zones in the large outdoor space using co-ordinating white furniture worked exceptionally well. In this picture you can see our curved Bulgari sofa, our Tobago daybed, and in the background, our South Beach Bistro sets. Therefore enabling smaller groups of friends and family to socialise, eat and drink together whilst still maintaining a co-ordinated, ‘put together’ look for the whole event.

Outdoor furniture hire for a garden party in North London

Here we have a perfect example of how a back garden can be transformed into an ideal party venue.  Again, opting for summery white outdoor furniture hire, the client again selected sofas, daybeds and bistro furniture hire.  In this picture you can see our round rattan daybed, the ‘Miami’. The addition of white linen deckchairs added a chic beach club vibe.  Also, don’t forget you can also transform the look of our hire sofas and daybeds, simply by adding some scatter cushions.  We have these available in dozens of shades and patterns; check out our accessories section for more details.
