Must have items to bring your Marquee or Blank Canvas Venue to life!

Selecting to host your wedding or event at a blank-canvas venue, or within a marquee, is a wonderful way to imprint your personal style. In many cases, it also means that you’ll need to source your own event hire furniture and accessories. We are here to help!

Here are 5 event hire items we believe at South West Event Studio that you need to turn your blank-canvas venue or marquee into an unforgettable oasis:

1 – Genuine Crystal Glassware

The right glass for your occasion will not only look the part but enhance guests’ experiences and demonstrate attention to detail. The champagne, cocktails, spirits, fine wines and craft beers you’ll be serving at your event deserve quality vessels to match!

If you know impeccable quality when you see it, then you won’t be able to take your eyes off our genuine Bohemia Crystal Glassware from the Czech Republic. Offering one of the largest selections of premium glassware in WA, we stock three different designs of Bohemia Crystal to suit various tablescapes: Flamenco, Bedford and Wellington. We also offer the elegant classics; Bormioli Rocco Italian Glassware and Plumm Glass ranges. With over 28 different glasses to choose from, you’re sure to find a perfect vessel for your favourite tipple.

Forget thick rims and knock-off crystal, our glassware is the real deal – adding that extra touch of luxury to your event.

2 – Luxurious Euro Linens

Adding texture, softness and colour, napkins and tablecloths are an essential for all table concepts. And the opportunities for your table linens are truly endless; coordinate with floral arrangements to make a big impression, exude elegance with a classic white or embrace the rustic feel with a natural organic look.

At South West Event Studio, we offer Italian and Baltic napkins and tablecloths made from 100% linen. High quality and soft to touch, you’ll find no stiff and starchy offerings here! We currently stock 12 trending tones, and this year welcomed two new colours to the range: Marsala and Grape, which perfectly complement the ambient colours of the Margaret River Wine Region.

And because bigger is better, our napkins and tablecloths are generously sized, which means no nasty table legs on display!

3 – Quality Crockery

You’ve probably put a lot of thought into what food you’d like served at your event, but what about the crockery to accompany them? Good local produce deserves great presentation. Not only does quality crockery complete your décor and table settings, it can also enhance the dining experience at your event.

Complement your neutral table-scapes with grey, blush or sand-toned plates; add some extra texture with a marble finish; make a bold statement with black; or keep it classy with a metallic rim.

From classic Royal Ascot White China to organic hand-made Earthenware to luxe gold-rimmed marble; we offer a wide variety of plates, bowls, platters and serving vessels to compliment your chosen table-scape and menu, including:

  • Royal Ascot China in white, featuring oversized dinner plates with matching entrée, side and pasta bowls, tea and coffee cups
  • Earthenware Nomad collection by Salt & Pepper (as used in this season’s MasterChef and My Kitchen Rules) in grey, blue, black, sand, rust and blush
  • Relic by Salt & Pepper, featuring two-toned dinner plates, sides, bowls, jugs and condiment bowls in shades Mist and Roam
  • Base Charger Plates in hammered glass, metallic trims and acrylics

We also offer a complimentary demo table-scape meeting at our Vasse Studio to trial your ideas in-situ and help you visualise your final look. The photos you take from this meeting can then be used to coordinate with your vendors, including florists and caterers.

Mixing and matching plates with cutlery, glassware and linen to reflect your own unique style will really establish the distinct theme of your event.



wedding chairs


4 – Chairs with Flair (and Comfort!)

A beautiful looking chair isn’t always a comfortable chair. But it’s important to combine both at your seated event!

Hosting your event at a blank-canvas venue means you’ll be able to select chairs that match your desired aesthetic perfectly – modern, rustic, traditional, classic, bold.

At South West Event Studio, we have over 1500 chairs in stock, so you’re guaranteed to find a suitable seat to match your theme. In fact, you’ll be spoiled for choice!

Our aged oak timber chairs with rattan are our most popular in stock, as they complement a range of décor, especially the Hamptons-style winery aesthetic that’s very popular in WA’s South West. And their padded rattan seat makes for a comfortable sitting experience!

We also offer the classic Tiffany chair in 5 different finishes; white resin, clear resin, antique white timber, walnut timber and gold timber.

wedding backdrop

5 – A Beautiful Backdrop

A backdrop or wall covering can provide both function and flair at your blank canvas venue. From photo walls, to bridal table features, signage displays and something to hide any potential eye sores, an eye-catching backdrop is simply a must-have.

We have custom made a variety of freestanding backdrops that can be used to complement our marquees, or stand alone at entries, dance floors and more.
