Make your event stand out from the crowd

So you’ve got a big event to plan for and you need to ‘knock the socks off’ your guests?!  Well you’ve come to the right place!  Whether you’re planning a wedding, a product launch, a promotion or corporate event, a photo shoot or a themed event, using plants for hire (event plant hire) as a way to create the perfect space is a clever choice for the on-trend event coordinator.

The idea of creating the right atmosphere for an event using nature is not a new concept.  Events have, for many years, used flowers and floral arrangements as focal points.  From table top centrepieces to rose petal scatters – floristry has led the way for using nature to create stylish and impressive events.

With over 40 years experience, we are adept at handling any event, large or small, corporate or private, themed or routine. Professional, reliable and innovative, we’re the event partner that provides peace of mind.

We can custom build some features and structures, so if you have something in mind, why not give us a call on 1800 631 365 to find out if we can help you.

What Our Customers Say

  • Another OpenAir cinema season complete with great service, as always (after more than 10 years), from Tropical Plant Rentals. The TPR team are always highly professional, doing a great job getting the plants in and out of the event site at Mrs Macquarie’s Point and maintaining them throughout each season. The stunning plants and greenery used around the venue make the world’s most beautiful cinema even more beautiful! Highly recommended.

  • Recreo has been with Tropical Plant Rentals for over a year now and Mitch and his team are very professional. Great customer service and always good to see them when they service the plants. We also moved premises recently and the transition from our old premises to our new premises was seamless. Having plants in the office just adds that extra something special to the environment.

  • Liz from Tropical Plant Rentals provides beautiful plants that breathe life into our office – and has been doing so for over 25 years! Her service is both professional and reliable and she is a pleasure to have in our office. We highly recommend Liz for all your plant rental needs!

  • Liz and the team at TPR are wonderful. We’ve been using them for at least 4 years now and its certainly a whole lot easier than attempting to do it ourselves. The service is easy, affordable and the plants always look healthy and great. In the odd event that one starts to look off, Liz replaces with no questions asked! Great service – I highly recommend TPR

  • We’ve been using Tropical Plat Rentals each summer for more than 10 years at our premium event. Mitch and his team are a pleasure to work with, providing reliable service every time. And their plants always look great, enhancing the look and the feel of the event site. We’ll be using them next summer and would recommend TPR to any business!

  • I’ve been using TPR for over 2 years now and are without doubt my number one plant supplier. Always delivering high quality products with professional staff & services. A great supplier to work with!

  • Recreo has been with Tropical Plant Rentals for over a year now and Mitch and his team are very professional, great customer service and always good to see them when they service the plants. We also moved premises recently and the transition from our old premises to our new premises was seamless. Have plants in the office just adds that extra something special to the environment.

  • Really happy to have partnered with Jayne at TPR to bring fresh air and green to our offices with quality plants and her first class service. TPR is our trusted and preferred supplier for all our greenery needs. Highly recommended.

  • Mitch and his team at Tropical Plant Rentals recently provided a one-stop shop to bring greenery into our office. They gave their time to check out the space and recommend a suite of plants that would thrive and complement the different areas around the office. The plants are a very welcome addition and we don’t even have to worry about looking after them as their service includes ongoing maintenance and watering!

  • Absolutely fabulous service! We have some hanging plants in our office and because of Mitch and the great team at TPR our office looks great! Friendly and professional service. Came in to quote up and advise which plants would look the best in our office. Pleasure to do business with them! We have recommended them to other businesses.

  • We have worked with TPR for the last 2 years and can say they are the most professional supplier of indoor plants that we have worked with. Recently they were able to supply each of our team a lush and exotic indoor plant to highlight RUOK Day via our management team (at a very generous price). The team are delighted and we are delighted to work with TPR for all our plant needs. Our office looks gorgeous because of them and Liz our plant carer is gorgeous.

  • Thank you tom you and your amazing team for outstanding service with delivery, drop off and communication leading up to our event.

Add the “wow” factor with short term event plant hire

These days, when creating that extra edge for an event, people are using plants for hire to add the wow factor.  Plants for hire is a relatively new concept for the general public who are planning their special event.  It is now an accessible option.  It’s value for money cannot be overestimated.   The huge variety of short term plants for hire that are available means there’s a set up suitable for every occasion.  If you’re having difficulty picturing the types of plants you could hire for your next event, consider ferns, kentia palms, vines, flowering plants like orchids, citrus plants, fruit trees or Australian natives .  We have a huge selection of lush, green plants for hire.  Plants for hire can be used to create a theme, be a backdrop for a theme or simply create ambience and beauty to an event space.

The most watched and talked about event of the decade was the wedding of Prince William and Princess Kate.  And what was the most talked about feature of the event, other than Princess Kate and her sister Pippa’s dresses?!  It was the gorgeous trees that lined the aisle.  The 20ft maple trees inside Westminster Abbey!  Just when you thought Westminster Abbey couldn’t be any more grand, trees and plants were used to make their wedding the grandest of events.  And weren’t they impressive – highlighting the vast space inside the famous church while also bringing the English countryside to an interior space in the middle of central London!

Benefits of plant hire for your event

Plants for hire can achieve so much for an event.  Plants soften spaces, they enhance backdrops, they accentuate and frame features and focal points.  Plants also create layering and depth in spaces.  Plants for hire brings nature to spaces which are otherwise artificial.  Plants for hire is a sustainable alternative to wasteful floristry arrangements which are disposed of shortly after the event.  There are so many reasons to use plants for hire at your next event, so don’t be afraid to delve into the rewarding world of plants for hire!
