It’s Spring Time!



Spring Racing is well and truly upon us! The sun is shining, providing us some picturesque days. It’s so exciting to be back out and about attending events, albeit a little differently these days.

Here at Hampton Event Hire we really look forward to the Spring racing carnival. It’s a great time of year when things are warming up, but not too hot yet. Everyone dresses a little bit brighter and has a spring in their step. Have you thought about how you will be getting involved this year?

Some key dates to lock into your calendar for the upcoming carnival: Ladies Day, Caulfield Cup, Cox Plate, Derby Day and of course the Melbourne Cup. Make sure to visit our friends at Brisbane Racing Club and Gold Coast Turf Club to secure your tickets.

Restrictions are easing again in Queensland and New South Wales where you can host small events at your home, or in public spaces so let’s get planning! Please ensure to check your states specific guidelines before stating your planning process.

Sit-down events are ideal for intimate settings, long lunches or gala-style dinners, with a focus on sharing good conversation over the table. When it comes to furniture and decor for a sit-down party, you’ll need to think about dining tables and dining chairs, along with tableware like plates, cutlery, napkins, glassware and centrepieces. Planning something a little smaller? Look to add a little jazz to the event with our feature glassware and catering items. Create a destination with one of our service bars or backdrops for a photo moment. Organising some standout florals and need a structure, we can help with that too!


Most importantly remember to enjoy yourself and your guests will too. Have a laugh and place a bet on your favourite horse! It doesn’t have to be an “official” bet. You could organise a sweepstake with your friends and family. Host your own ‘Fashions on the Field.’ This is a great way to get everyone involved and engaged in the races. Who knows what luck you may have!


If you need some event furniture, catering or décor items for your ultimate race day event, get in touch! We would love to help transform your space into a VIP area for all of your clients, friends and family. We’ve included some suggestions of style and pieces you could use to add a little race day flair to your home. Feel free to email for more information.
