Set The Tone With Creative Furniture Hire
Choosing the right furniture and decor can help you set the tone and atmosphere for your event.
Whether you’re planning a formal gala or a relaxed cocktail party, we have a huge range of furniture styles to help you bring your desired theme to life. From rustic dining tables to chic cocktail lounges, the possibilities are endless!
Some of our new collections (such as our Manhattan Collection) lend themselves perfectly to a modern luxe celebration.
Create Functional Spaces
When hiring furniture for your EOFY event, try to design functional spaces that encourage mingling and relaxation. We suggest using a mix of seating styles such as high bars, stools, cafe tables and lounges to accommodate different preferences.
Arrange your furniture in clusters or zones to create break-out areas for your guests, while making the most of your venue layout. Our team can work with you to design the perfect floor plan that maximises comfort and flow for your EOFY event.

Pay Attention To The Finer Details
To elevate the ambience of your EOFY party, don’t forget to add some extra detail using decor and accessories. Cushions, rugs, table centrepieces and lighting will enhance your event and create a warm and inviting atmosphere. Table settings can be transformed with linen napkins, charger plates, crystal glassware and gold cutlery. Remember, the small details can make a big difference towards your overall guest experience.

Choose The Right Venue
Your venue will set the tone for your EOFY party, so choose wisely! Consider the size of your guest list, the atmosphere you want to create, and the convenience for attendees.
Whether you opt for a spacious warehouse, an outdoor garden space, or your own office premises, ensure that the venue suits the nature of your event. It should also be easily accessible for your guests, and you may need to consider logistics such as parking and transport.
We have plenty of corporate venue options across the Gold Coast, Brisbane and Byron Bay. Need some venue recommendations? Ask our team for our top picks.

Personalise The Experience
To make your EOFY party truly memorable, personalise the experience for your employees. Incorporate elements that reflect your company’s culture, such as branding, logos and company colours. Here at Hampton Event Hire, we can also assist you with custom design elements like backdrops, signage and more.
Be sure to tailor the activities, decorations, and entertainment to resonate with your team. This personal touch will make your employees feel appreciated and create a unique and engaging atmosphere. A photo backdrop is always a good way to provide an interactive element to your event!
