Occasional Hire

Welcome to Occasional Hire

The leading experts for the last 18 years!
Our experience and expertise for your piece of mind!

We supply quality Glassware, Crockery, Cutlery and Table Linen hire for all occasions. We specialise in weddings, all types of celebration gatherings, birthday parties, summer balls, garden parties, festivals, corporate hospitality and funerals in Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire and South Yorkshire.

Occasional Hire is a small independently owned & run business that prides itself in providing quality items, supported by excellent customer service. Our aim is to give a personal service, whatever the occasion, be it a wedding reception, product launch, conference or seminar. So why not let Occasional Hire ease the strain by organising the table setting for you in what ever style you require (and we can even take care of the washing up afterwards!).

We stock a wide range of items to suit any event from a formal reception to a casual buffet and tea party - applying the same attention to detail and great service whatever the occasion.

In addition, for the caterer we offer a range of service items ranging from ramekins and butter pats through to salad bowls, salmon flats and baskets.

Our table linen is our pride and joy; it is of excellent quality and comes in a wide range of colours and sizes. And our specialty is providing high quality round tablecloths, for that superb finish on your celebration tables.

All items come professionally washed, polished, wrapped and ready for service.

Don’t let the weather spoil your special event!

Due to popular demand we now have a fabulous range of Umbrellas for hire. So if you don’t want the weather to spoil your special event why not hire a range of our colourful brollies, to either keep off the hot sun or fend off an unwanted shower?

‘Brollies in a basket’ ensures that you have covered every eventuality! Not only are they practical but a great talking point for all your guests and they add an excellent splash to your photos!

Vintage Crockery

We now have a fabulous range of china cups and saucers, tea plates, milk and sugar basins, teapots and cake stands. For a truly elegant event with a quirky twist, ask about our ‘afternoon tea package’.

Creating Your Own Flower Arrangements

We have a selection of centre pieces to enable you to create your own floral design or table decoration - from formal vases and stands to jugs and hurricane lamps.
