When hosting a formal business luncheon, it is important to make a good impression. Choosing the right party rentals can go a long way toward making that perfect impression. Here are a few touches to consider as you plan your event.
Pub-Height Cocktail Tables
Before everyone is seated for the meal, you may want to encourage mingling between guests. This is especially true if your luncheon will cater to both employees and potential clients. Setting up pub-height cocktail tables at the front of your venue gives guests space to share an appetizer and beverage while chatting about business. These tables can be rented with or without tablecloths to suit the venue and theme for the luncheon. Be sure that your catering staff will be serving single-serving items that can be enjoyed while using these tables.
Don't rely on the chairs your venue has available. You may find that they are simple metal card table chairs that don't reflect the professional look you are aiming for. Instead, rent more sophisticated chairs for your event. Wood chairs with simple tiebacks can be ideal for a luncheon, or you can choose more ornate chair covers to add that final finishing touch. If you are planning to set up a head table at the event, consider plush chair rentals for your C-level guests to give them a bit of VIP treatment.
Linens And Chargers
When you set the tables for your luncheon, you want to pay attention to every last detail. Instead of using paper napkins, consider renting linen napkins. You can choose designs and colors that match your branding to add a personalized touch to every table, and you can add coordinating plate chargers under each setting for that perfect finishing touch. Another option is to use white napkins and colorful tablecloths to create a pulled-together look. Talk to your party rental company about additional table options, such as crystal and silverware, to add a more upscale look to the meal. Your party rental company might even have great options for centerpieces that tie in your business colors and match the linens you select.
Let your party rental company know what the theme of your luncheon is, along with your budget. Together, you can find the right party rental items to bring a professional look to the event while making the right impression on your office staff, potential clients and current vendors.
