Your choice of furniture for your child’s birthday party will contribute to the event’s success.

The right furnishings can enhance the mood or vibe you want the party to have. Good quality and great-looking furniture pieces can immediately impress and make all guests, regardless of age, comfortable as well.

Since furnishings play a key role in the success of the party, it is important that you get the right pieces if you will be hiring them. Here are some tips on event and party furniture rental in Dubai, or in any city where your child’s natal day celebration will take place:

1.Reserve the furniture pieces as soon as possible

Once you have set the date, time, venue, and other details of the party, start looking for a furniture rental company right away.

Keep in mind that reputable furniture hire companies are always busy and rent out their furnishings frequently throughout the year. Because of this, you have to start making your furniture rental plans as early as possible.

Once you have finalized your guest list, give this detail to your chosen vendor. You should also add a few more extra chairs to ensure that everyone has a seat during the party, even those who did not RSVP.

You would also do well to give the vendor some info about the party such as the theme so that they can reserve the best and most appropriate furniture pieces for your event.


2. Make a furniture hire checklist

To avoid missing any items, especially the more important ones, create a list of all the furniture pieces you need for the event. These should include:

  • Chairs (including banquet, lounge, etc.)
  • Tables (dining, buffet, coffee, side, etc.)
  • Food and beverage serving stations

To avoid forgetting any item for the event, check the event venue if you are not hosting the party in your home. Make a detailed list of everything you will need in the venue and during the party. Tick off each item as you go through the prep and planning stages.

3. See the furniture

Once you know the different pieces of furniture you need, visit the furniture rental company’s office, showroom, or warehouse and take a look at their inventory. Find out if their furnishings are in good condition and if they will fit the look and feel of the venue and the theme of the party.

Inspect the furniture pieces for adults and kids. Test the furnishings for adults by sitting on them. Take note of how comfortable they are, how they support your back, and how sturdy they are.

For the children’s chairs, check their condition and durability, and if their color and make will enhance the theme of the birthday party.

In case you can’t visit the furniture hire company office or showroom, visit their event services and products page to see photos of their furnishings and parties they have supplied furniture for.


4. Ask for recommendations

In case you are having a hard time choosing the furnishings that will work best for the party, ask staff of the furniture hire company for their recommendations.

For instance, if you need help with choosing the right buffet table or serving station for a  Japanese lunch or dinner menu, ask staff which tables would best suit your needs and the theme of the party.


The best vendors will know exactly the kinds of chairs, couches, tables, and other furnishings that will fit the seating needs of your party, and the style and feel you are aiming for.

5.Set a budget

Lastly, furnishings are only one part of the celebration you have to spend money on.

To give your child a fun and memorable party, you also need to invest in food, prizes, gifts, etc.

Because of this, it is important that you set a budget for your furniture rental. Make sure your vendor knows your budget as well so that they can offer options that are within your specified limit.

A good company will prioritize your budget and, at the same time, provide an array of satisfactory good-quality furnishings you can choose from.  They will listen to your needs and preferences and work with you to provide the items you require to host a fun and memorable children’s birthday party

To ensure you will have the right furnishings that will make your child and everyone at the party happy, follow the tips above when looking to rent the essential furniture pieces for this important event.
