Round the table with OTT- Dining as it’s meant to be!!

We are taking you back to last October when Over the Top Rentals joined forces with Starlight Design, Rhubarb, Rob Van Helden Floral Design, Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium, I Power Lighting, Serena Bolton photography, Hire the Barman, Great Hire and Champagne Jacquart to host a showcase at Somerset House themed around the Four Seasons.

The event unravelled in the venue’s east wing, which had been converted into an eye catching setting with one room for each season.

The Spring space had a table display with an orchid tree and our pale aqua green cherry blossom linen.

The Summer room featured a table placed on a grass lawn, with our OTT custom designed French Voiles linen, with a blue corded ribbon decorating the edges of the table. Rob Van Helden created picnic baskets, stone candelabra’s and cracked pots with pink and green florals inside .

The Autumn space had our retro brown linen and was decorated with bespoke furniture including Chandelle chairs from Great Hire along with brown draping and fruit and vegetable trees adorning the table.

Winter, which was inspired by the Christmas holidays featured a revolving table with crystal William Yeoward vases and red flowers surrounding a tiered cake by Elizabeth’s Cake Emporium. Our burgundy taffeta with a burgundy velvet topper was showcased in this room and was made especially for this event. To treat guests we had a liquid nitrogen stall with chefs preparing freshly made ice cream and desserts, it was a real feast for the eyes!

There were seasonal cocktails served in each of the rooms by the talented Hire The Barman, while Rhubarb served mouthwatering canapés and bowl food- the gourmet popcorn went down a treat!

I thoroughly enjoyed working with an array of creative individuals, this event is one that I won’t forget anytime soon🙂

Hope you enjoyed reading this, love OTT XX

Wedding in Hong Kong with OTT Linen

Oh we do love when our linen goes global!

Our linen featured in a gorgeous wedding in a beautiful ballroom in the bustling city that is Hong Kong.

Whilst white linen is very beautiful and popular with weddings, brighter colours are now being asked for on a more frequent basis. This is great for us as we get to use some of our favourite linen’s such as the Magenta Taffeta that you see in the pictures below.

We especially like the idea of using tulle material to pin flowers on and placing it over our linen to create a floating spray of flowers, adding a dreamy look to your table.

I hope this inspires you to add some colour to your next event love OTT xx

ROB VAN HELDEN- A TASTE FOR CHRISTMAS

Rob Van Helden had the event industry’s  finest over to his warehouse to see the magic inside. He created floral masterpieces in every section of the room. The decor was based around the festive season that is Christmas. RVH used dark warm colours to decorate the tables.

Our linen was present at this event, we provided a warm green taffeta linen for them to create a christmas heaven centrepiece. We also provided a sumptuous dark burgundy velvet topper for another table. We especially loved the flocked red candle sticks on our green taffeta linen, the two striking colours worked nicely together to give a festive table decor.

Many thanks to Serena Bolton for the images-  http://serenabolton.com

I hope this inspires you with your own Christmas tables, Love OTT XX

Halloween Inspiration with OTT Rentals

With Halloween coming up we thought it would be the perfect time to share with you this creative and gorgeous styled shoot that we had the pleasure of supplying our linen’s for last year.

The shoot was a gold and white Alexander McQueen styled bridal shoot by Hawke & Hughes. This took place in a boutique luxury hotel in Oxford called Hope House. It is a Queen Anne-style home built from Cotswold stone in around 1708. The shoot was situated on the ground floor, the restaurant features an impressive stone fire place, a bay-window looking out over the town of Woodstock, an opulent chandelier and a modern interior design.

Our white ripple linen was used which is a  beautiful tablecloth that combines a modern look with sheer elegance. It looked fantastic as the base of Hawke & Hughes creation. We particularly loved the Swarovski Encrusted Skulls used to decorate the tables.

I hope you enjoy these photos and are inspired for your own Halloween table!

Love OTT XX
