Christmas table settings for hire
As much as we all love Christmas, often the lead-up to the big day can be an exhausting and stress-inducing one. From getting gifts sorted, to organising the food and drinks, to even sorting your social calendar for the months leading up to it. However, thanks to local Interior Design company, OAK + RIDGE, the worry of getting the Christmas table setting is no longer a worry at all!
OAK + RIDGE, brought to you by local interior designer and aesthetic consultant, Steph Sandhoff, is giving you the ability to hire a bunch of Christmas Table settings for your Christmas Day or for those social events leading up to the big day.
Having launched her business back in October 2020, following the arrival of COVID-19, it seemed the perfect opportunity for Steph to take the plunge into kicking off her own dream.
After completing a Diploma in Interior Design and Decoration and achieving a Bachelor's Degree in Design (Architecture), Steph now offers a range of services including Colour Consultation, Concept Development, Sourcing and Specification, Wholesale Product Suppliers, Design Deliverables, E-Design, and for the lead-up to Christmas, table settings for hire!
“During NSW’s second lockdown, Christmas began to feel like the light at the end of the tunnel. Every year, for the last ten or so years, I have designed a Christmas table setting for my family’s festivities. I would pick a different theme or colour scheme and surprise my extended family with it on Christmas Day.
“With ten years’ worth of Christmas décor and my parents complaining about a lack of storage, I decided to put those designs to use. This is where I came up with the idea to hire out table setting designs for Christmas and the November to December festive season,” Steph said.
Creating seven different table designs, Steph hopes to have created unique settings with a design for everyone; a table that speaks directly to you and immediately transports you to a Christmas or end-of-year celebration.
Up first is Christmas By The Pool, an iconic Aussie Christmas celebration set up. Think vivid shades of blue and natural textures.
“Based on my own family’s Christmas Day which is usually spent by the pool. With some choosing to sit and admire the vivid blue water whilst others get in refreshing dips between courses.
The Christmas Picnic plays homage to the picnic trend that came out of this year’s lockdowns. Creating a relaxing and casual celebrations, surrounded by the beauty of the outdoors, this setting features a gingham tablecloth with soft touches from the outdoors.
Night Before Christmas is the moody table setting perfect for those night-time end-of-year celebratory dinners, or Christmas Eve celebrations.
“After spending all day Christmas Eve getting ready, the ‘Night Before Christmas’ is a moody and subtle design, reminiscent of that final chance to stop and relax before the big day.”
An Aussie Christmas table setting celebrates all there is to love about a Christmas in Australia, whether you’re eating inside or out, you’re enjoying the summer temperatures, or flicking the aircon on to keep the crew cool.
“Sit back and enjoy being surrounded by the rustic touches of the Australian bush, the earthy tones of our land and our stunning starry skies.”
The Christmas Garden Party is the ideal design for those keen to celebrate prior to Christmas. Celebrate with your nearest and dearest surrounded by fancy florals, gorgeous greens, and refined gold highlights.
“I imagine a staff party or group of ladies catching up after so long apart with a fancy cup of tea or glass of sparkling in the garden.”
Christmas in Positano is inspired by the world’s collective urge to travel. Whilst we can’t get to Positano right now, you and the crew can get still recreate the vibes at home!
“Our ‘Christmas in Positano’ table setting will transport you to dinner at dusk, overlooking the rough and jagged Amalfi Coastline. With references to winding cobblestone pathways, vibrant orange, sunsets, and the understated glamour of Italy’s naturally occurring textures and materials, this table is perfect for all your Christmas festivities.”
Lucky last, but certainly not least is Christmas Carnival, the design created for the true party animals! Whether it’s a lead-up to Christmas gathering or a New Year’s celebration, this one is fun, fun, fun!
“The bright pops of colour and quirky linen are a modern twist on a 50s aesthetic. I would love to see this design used for a New Year’s Eve celebration.”
Each hire package includes a tablecloth, table runner (if applicable), placemats, dinner and side plates, napkins, cutlery set, and decorations for the middle of the table, with delivery and pick-up available across Newcastle and Lake Macquarie.
