When it matters to you, it matters to us.

Celebrations, launches, awards, or declarations of love and commitment; events bring people together for any number of reasons but, one thing is always true, the details make all the difference.

Whether the table linens are providing the perfect neutral backdrop to showcase outstanding floral decorations, or are an integral part of an extravagant and decadent theme, it is vital for organisers that the quality is excellent, the pieces are all perfectly placed and the price is right.

Every day the expert teams at Special Occasion Linen work with a variety of partners; from the most experienced events managers to the least confident, private client, and from catering business owners to busy brides-to-be. We have been supporting events planners with a huge range of choice and quality across our event linens range for over 120 years. We take great pleasure in inspiring vision, building confidence and delighting our events partners time after time.

How we have become the trusted partner for event organisers


A touch of class

Table linens matter and, with the right selection, a carefully chosen set can also be a cost-effective way to bring a touch of class and luxury to any event.

There is no need to settle for buying cheap, disposable alternatives when you can have sustainable, 100% high thread-count cotton, luxurious material, or even a delicate organza to hire at a fraction of the cost. Our teams are able to tailor an event selection to meet a partner’s vision within most budgets, and relish the challenge to do so.


Make the difference

No event is too small. No event is too large. We can provide table linens and chair decor for any occasion.

Our event team will work with the organiser and their client to select the perfect material, in the specific colour and style to compliment their event theme. We are even able to create bespoke hues to match – for example – sports colours, wedding themes or floral schemes, perfectly enhancing the event’s ambience and sense of occasion. Our huge range, of 32 colours, means that over 5,900 different combinations of napkins, tablecloths and table runners are available to make your event unique.


Size is not a problem

We have one of the largest ranges of table linens and chair covers to hire in the UK.

All are hand selected, expertly laundered and pressed, and packed specifically for each event. Whatever the size of the occasion we are confident that we have the inventory and the capacity, and are able to provide the sense of occasion and style required. Our experience also allows us to be flexible, often providing for large events with as little as 24 hours notice. And, with a substantial team of experts, we can run multiple concurrent events without concern.


Service excellence

With the experience of our world-renowned commercial laundering parent company CLEAN behind us, we bring our unrivalled expertise to any project from the outset and throughout.

Together we have over 120 years of experience in providing linen services for beautiful, bespoke events. It is the details that count, and with deliveries packed by location for hassle-free on-site distribution and bundles tailored to the layout of the venue, our details are more accurate than most. We can also organise extended hire periods, unique bespoke products and always ensure each order is handpicked and every product is individually checked for quality.


Price that fits

We want our partners to feel confident throughout our engagement, and to facilitate this we are transparent and up-front with our costs.

Our top quality, often bespoke, products are available to hire for highly competitive prices but with clearly detailed, itemised pricing and scale discounts available, we will do everything we can to work with events managers and make sure we create a solution to meet the budget. Special Occasion Linen understand that no one wants a nasty surprises when it comes to the end of the party, and our partners can feel confident in the price they will be paying.


In good hands

We know that a client’s experience is everything, and that providing exquisite products, accurately organised and efficiently delivered, is the only way to guarantee an event manager will partner with us time and again.

And so that is what we do. We work hard to give event owners a seamless, pain-free experience with their linen hire, whatever the scale. From providing swatches and imagery to inspire in the planning stages, to ensuring deliveries are accurately labeled in and out of the event, we oversee each engagement with care and attention from start to finish.
