EOFY table setting ideas from our table linen hire experts

The End of Financial Year (EOFY) is upon us once again.

And we all know what that means: party time! (Oh yeah, and tax returns…)

There’s no better way to celebrate a successful financial year, lay out a course for the coming financial year or pay tribute to your hard-working employees than with an EOFY party.

If you’ve never planned one before, it can be tricky knowing where to begin. You’ll have to contend with:

  • Choosing a venue
  • Setting a menu
  • Planning a program
  • Budgeting and planning

And of course, you can’t forget about your table settings!

As with any corporate event, good decor and theming is essential if you want to break free of the daggy company event cliche.

Luckily, our table linen hire experts are here to help. We’ve helped set up many fantastic EOFY events – here are just a couple of the best ideas and themes we’ve seen!

Black and white party

Timeless, elegant, striking – if there were three words that perfectly describe why the black and white theme is so popular at the moment, these would be them!

Moreover, this monochromatic and minimalist theming is perfect if your goal is to add a bit of class to your EOFY party.

And the best part is that there are almost limitless ways to apply the black and white theme to your table settings.

One way is to use block colours.

Consider using an all-black table linen with white placemats or plates – alternatively, you can also do the other way around, with black placemats on a white table linen for extra “pop”.

If you’re feeling especially bold, stripes and spots are another way of making your monochromatic event stand out.

After all, there’s nothing quite as bold as the extreme contrast offered by black and white!

At Table Art, we offer a wide range of table linens and accessories that would be perfect for a black and white theme.

  • Black poly
  • Black weave

Yacht party

Looking for something a little bit more luxurious that’ll sweep people away to the south of France?

A yacht-themed EOFY party is always such a fun and memorable theme!

After all, who hasn’t wanted to attend a yacht party at some stage?

While not all of us are fortunate to own our very own yachts (and host a party on them), that doesn’t mean you can’t try to bring that same atmosphere into your company event.

You’ll want to bring in plenty of champagne, fresh, summer beats, and a warm-weather menu including prawns and smoked salmon.

And in terms of your table settings, that means plenty of pretty pastels mixed with a navy blue and white base.

Going all-out for a nautical theme? You can also consider hiring accessories like candles, ropes, shells and more to use as centerpieces for your tables.

All of this is tied together by your table settings.

To bring it all together, we suggest napkins, overlays, underlays, and trestle cloths in Seafoam weave, Denim weave, Teal Chevron, Citrus Stripe, and Canary Stripe.

Does your functions space not have table linens and accessories in these materials or colours?

Most don’t! Steer away from the stock-standard venue decor packages, and hire your table linen from Table Art instead.


Classy barbecue theme

There’s nothing like a true blue Aussie barbecue for your EOFY party – take it one notch further, though, and make it a little more classy and sophisticated with the right linens and table set-ups.

Since EOFY falls smack bang in the middle of winter here in Australia, you’ll want to choose colours and decorations that add warmth to your EOFY grill.

We suggest hiring table linens that are striped. Not only do these bring the outdoors inside (it won’t exactly be warm, after all!) but they’ll also create a homely, welcoming atmosphere.

Table Art offers plenty of table linens that are perfect for the job.

Give your team the red carpet treatment!

Who said Hollywood A-listers are the only ones that get to enjoy the red carpet treatment?

The glitz and glamour of a red carpet-themed event is the perfect idea if you’re celebrating an especially successful financial year.

After all, it’s your team that made it possible – why not reward them with a bit of pampering and glam?

In terms of colours, you’ll want rich reds teamed with luxe black and white, accessorised with gold and silver centrepieces or candleholders.

In addition to the colour palette, you’ll also want to pay attention to materials.

It’s not enough to simply have a red carpet or silver-lined table linen – no, it needs to feel luxurious too!

If you need to hire table linens for a red-carpet event, Table Art has you covered. Our catalogue includes a range of materials, including silky-smooth satin and luxe velvet.

Some of our top picks that truly exude that luxurious feel include Red Satin, Ruby Old World, and Claret Floral.

If you’re after a touch of velvet, we have napkins available in four stunning colours: Emerald, Royal Blue (Royale), Mulberry, and Marshmellow.

With our expert table setting eye behind your set-up, we’ll help you create a memorable red carpet theme for your EOFY party.
