 Hiring canape trays

We are seeing a shift from purchasing to hiring canapé trays with our event industry clients. Everyone wants the new latest thing and to stand out & be different so it’s hire all the way now!

 

Benefits of hiring for the client are

-Exciting & interesting pieces that move with the times.

-No need to find storage space for the stock.

-No need to invest in stock that will go become yesterdays news.

Where it began

I started out designing pieces for sale. However in an ever changing world when everyone is trying to keep up with the times & keep inovating. Clients are no longer investing in these very expensive trays.

And I have had to keep up and adapt to what people want. So much so that I have removed sales from the website altogether, which leaves me time to concentrate my time elsewhere.

Who hires

So along came hiring. Caterers, hotels, restaurants, members clubs & wedding planners are coming to Tina Nisson Design looking for trays, often for large creative events & they charge the hire fees straight onto their client. It’s a winning formula all round. Our part of the bargain – making it as user friendly for clients to have what they need as easily as possible.

I read an article in the ES Magazine and a wise person said ‘The assets people care about have shifted — we’re renting far more and experiences matter more than ownership. It’s the same with the events industry.

See for yourself

Head to the hire page and take a look.  at the range. It’s not only acrylic trays now either, with an increasing stock from wedding & event design. There’s lots of unusual items that add something special to events.

Usherette tray fabrication – from concept through to event

So this is the story of a set of Usherette trays from the design to production.

Macaroon trays

Ohlala-macarons contacted us looking for a unique way to serve their macarons (French style macaroons) . The team gave us some requirements like holes for syringes and shallow trays for fresh fruit . They also requested scalloped trays to protect the shells and we suggested business card slots and hidden compartments underneath for extra shells – to avoid trips back to the kitchen for re stocking.

We then had a CAD drawing made up – or seven !!!

Once it looked perfect on paper we begged for a barbie size one to take to the client. This is 1/3 scale model, complete with strap holes. Too cute!

I designed these mainly with small desserts in mind but they can be used for any cold bowl food or miniature plates.
