Our Story

Bringing local design to the table

Host the Event is designed for intimate gatherings. Sourced from across South Africa, each set features work by local ceramic designers. By working with smaller numbers, we are able to collaborate with local designers to curate a range of tablescapes that not only deliver on beauty, but quality.

Our themes are influenced by the latest interior design trends, yet are designed to work for all types of occasions. Each look evokes a unique atmosphere to create moments of connection. Settings can be styled in a multitude of ways, giving our customers the space to put their handwriting on the table through the styling.

The mission of Host the Event is simple; to bring friends and family together for a magical evening around a beautiful table.

Hosting made easy

All you need to do is book, host and re-pack the box! We’ll arrange delivery, collection and even do the washing up. Simply enjoy your evening. We delivery nationwide to all major cities. For our shipping rates, please visit our FAQS page.

Sustainability

From our reusable packaging and our environmentally friendly cleaning products to staying ‘water-wise’ even when the dams are full, we continue to be mindful of the ways we can reduce our impact on the environment.
