Ready for Rustic?

The Crystal Hire team are always on the lookout for new products and trends to create events. One trend which we’ve seen growing in popularity is Rustic. Find out more about the rustic trend and how you can create the theme for your next event.

What’s the Rustic trend all about?

The rustic trend is summed up as casual styling, inspired by the outdoors and nature. Though that’s not to say you have to hold your event outside to embrace the trend – we do live in England after all where the weather can be unpredictable! Creating your own rustic inspired event can include everything from venue choice, such as the secluded Gate Street Barn to your choice of table.

Getting started with the rustic trend

With your venue decided, you can then move onto how to create the ultimate, authentic rustic event. Embracing all things natural, nature-inspired and relaxed is a great starting point. Gone are the days when events and weddings meant that everything had to match, embracing the rustic theme means you can go for an eclectic colour palette. Why not choose a different coloured goblet for each place setting with your linen to complement or even contrast?

Our 6’ x 3” rustic trestle tables make the perfect base for the sit-down part of your rustic-inspired event. Whether you create a large U-shape, individual tables for 6 or a long banquet-style set up, your choice of glassware, cutlery and linen will complement the style. Team your rustic trestle table up with our oak Crossback chair for the ultimate rustic, relaxed occasion.

Have you thought about a grazing table?

If you don’t want to go with a traditional sit-down meal, the rustic theme is a great option - why not set up a long row of rustic trestle tables within your event space and create a Grazing Table! It’s the perfect way to get guests chatting, allows you to offer a wide variety of dishes to cater for ever-increasing dietary needs and means you can bring the rustic trend to life by displaying large platters of cheeses, freshly baked breads, charcuterie and much more.

We’re hungry just thinking about it!
