All prices exclude VAT
If you're looking to serve afternoon tea at your event or special occasion then afternoon tea stands are a must. These stands are capable of taking plates up to 8" in diameter (160mm), which can be interchanged for different looks.
Our afternoon tea stands are supplied with standard white porcelain side plates, which are freezer, dishwasher and microwave proof, however for a more glamorous tea party you could accessorise the stand by breaking out your best bone china.
Do I need to worry about cleaning afternoon tea stands before collection?
Cleaning tableware and serving hire after a big function is not only a boring job but is also the time when it's most likely to get lost.
It’s the main reason why we have made it compulsory for all tableware and serving items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. All a customer needs to do is to ensure that all food debris is scraped off tableware before it’s repacked ready for collection.
How does delivery of tableware hire work?
Working out delivery costs is easy with Expo Hire; simply use our carriage calculator to find which of our branches is near to you. Tap your postcode in and it will confirm not only whether we cover that postcode or not, but also which of our 11 branches is closest to you and the cost for delivery from that branch, as well as the list of possible extra charges.
Once you have filled your basket and confirmed your delivery dates and postcode in the checkout, we will show you an itemised cost for delivery so you know exactly what you’re paying for before you place your order.

Do you offer discounts for if the item is hired for less than 3 Days?
No. We recommend a minimum hire period of 3 days to provide
enough time for set-up and break-down of your event, and to make sure that problems such as traffic or
adverse weather conditions do not impact on your event. If you want to hire for a shorter period than this
then we cannot offer a discount.
