Charger Rentals in Metro Detroit

Charger plate rentals are large, decorative pieces of dinnerware that serve as the foundation for a place setting. Charger plate rentals should not be confused with dinner plates; they do not actually hold the food but rather provide an attractive base for the other dishes being served. Meal plates are placed on top of the charger plate rental and removed once finished still leaving a clean elegant table setting. Charger rentals also protect the table and linens from any drips or spills leaving you with a clean crumb-free table setting even after a meal.

Most frequently charger plate rentals are used at formal events like weddings and upscale corporate dinners where presentation is vital, but they can be used for any type of event. Additionally, charger rentals can help tie together all of the different components on your tabletop like centerpieces, flatware and napkins by providing a coordinating backdrop for everything else on display. Create an elegant yet purposeful table setting with charger plate rentals.
