Having started their careers in events, sisters Jemima and Alice set up LAY London to satisfy the increasing demand for stunning table settings for smaller occasions. After noticing the limited number of stylish, rentable tableware on offer, they came up with their hassle-free service, which is full of bold colours, elegant textiles and decadent furnishings. With Jemima and Alice curating every LAY Look themselves, simply check out on online and wait for it to be delivered straight to your door – plus, they can set it all up for you at home, if needed.

As founder of Beyond The Table, Sarah Freeman will design a bespoke and sustainably-sourced tablescape based entirely around your event, personal style, the occasion and the season for something unique and functional. Priced from £150 for up to four guests, and with personal elements available such as menu cards and napkins, your tablescape will be delivered (the company covers south London and the neighbouring areas) and set it up ahead of your event – leaving you time to enjoy the run up knowing everything is in hand.
Duchess & Butler offer a carefully curated selection of decorative tabletop items so you can create inspired, unique and beautiful tablescapes. The line of distinctive, timeless products has been hand-picked using pieces from all over the world – so you can mix and match or choose from one of the themed tablescapes on their website. From £24 per guest, based on a two-course place setting, everything is intended to reflect the brand’s quintessential aesthetic.
Not only can you rent a tablescape from The Clicc, each one comes with an illustrated step-by-step guide so you can enjoy the process of recreating the tablescape at home while taking part in a hands-on, learning experience. For those clients that want a hassle-free experience, the team can also provide stylists to set up the table for them, but with fresh flowers on offer as part of the package and personalised name places provided, why not embrace the experience and do it yourself? Designs are on-trend, elegant and fresh.
