Ancient tradition as old as humanity itself
Christmas is an annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ and is primarily observed on the 25th of December. The New Testament says Jesus was born in Bethlehem and as we know, within a stable because there wasn’t any room at the inn. Celebratory customs associated with Christmas differ from one country to the next but one popular tradition is that of gift giving. Gift giving is more than likely as old as humanity itself. Gifts would have been exchanged to maintain friendly relations and would have built bonds of trust between different groups of people.
During the Neolithic period the winter solstice was an important time and people gathered at sites like Stonehenge for feasting and exchanging of gifts. Centuries before the arrival of Jesus, early Europeans celebrated light and birth in the darkest days of winter. Rejoicing during the winter solstice was common practice and many would look forward to longer days and extended hours of daylight. It’s certainly no different centuries later and most of us dread the clocks ‘falling’ back.
Our gift to you this Christmas
The team at Furniture Hire UK love Christmas. Our discussions around the festive season would have started weeks ago as we prepare our warehouse, our stock, our fleet, our delivery team, every member prepares for the busyness of event after event wrapped in tinsel and festive cheer. Our gift to you this year, as or valued customer is our event expertise. We have organised and supplied furniture for literally thousands of occasions of all sizes. These range from huge corporate celebrations to intimate social gatherings whether at an external venue or within the workplace.
Go big or go home
We’ve all heard this saying and for us we actually mean it. Supplying Christmas chairs and tables in the thousands is simply what we do. Our trestle tables are stocked in a variety of sizes and have an unfinished top so we’d always recommended our linen alongside. Christmas furniture hire is such a popular category when it’s launched each year. We try to make it as simple as possible for our clients to find everything they need, all in one place for their festive celebrations.
Alongside Christmas tables and chairs, our festive range includes glass and chrome poseur tables with a selection of sleek stools allowing you to create relaxed social spaces where individuals can sit or stand with somewhere to pop their drink and snack. Our illuminated furniture is always hired by many because it makes such a statement at an event. With short days, the LED items can be turned on and admired from as early as 4pm. Guide your guests with fun pieces of furniture not forgetting rope and posts and soft seating so clients/guests can really relax back.
Christmas cheer for chairs
The seating you choose at your event should never be underestimated. Comfort is key. Depending upon your theme, we’re pretty confident we’ll have a chair which fits any profile perfectly. Our limewash cross back chairs are a sleek favourite but if you’re looking to add a vibrant splash of colour, our Esme chairs are extremely contemporary and guaranteed to make a statement.
Our ghost chairs certainly tie in well with a magical winter wonderland theme. The translucent material complements a snow filled venue accessorized with blues and silvers. They’ll glow under candlelight and allow light through in any space to create the feeling of openness and vastness.
