frequently asked questions


How many toilets do I need for my event?

Local councils provide comprehensive guidelines regarding the number of toilet stations that are required for public events.  These guidelines can be found here.  Our event consultants can guide you on your toilet needs for smaller and private events.


How many people can I seat at a table?

Event Rentals has a number of table sizes, available in round or rectangular, to suit your event.  The number of guests that can be seated will depend on your place settings and the size of the crockery that you choose.

The maximum recommended for each table is:

  • 1.8m round table seats up to 10 people
  • 1.2m round table seats up to 6 people
  • 0.95m round table seats  up to 4 people
  • 2.4m banquet table seats up to 10 people
  • 2.4m rectangular table seats up to 10 people
  • 1.8m rectangular table seats up to 8 people
  • 0.85m square table seats up to 4 people


How many glasses will I need for my event?

If you are setting your table with glasses it is easy to work out the right number but always allow a few extra as spares. For cocktail functions it can be a bit more complex. How many glasses you require will depend on how many you are prepared to wash during the function, what drinks are you serving.  We suggest allowing for 2 drinks per person for the first hour and around 1 for every hour after that. This means that for a 3-hour cocktail party for 50 guests you will serve around 150-200 drinks.
