Dessert forks are the smaller of the two kinds of fork we offer, and are primarily designed as the name suggests to eat dessert with. However, these forks are also useful pieces of cutlery for appetisers and entrées.
Our bead cutlery is so named because it features an attractive beading border. They are made of high-grade stainless steel to give the best finish. They are one of our most popular styles of cutlery available, and while we have literally thousands of pieces in stock at busy times of year availability can go quickly.
Don't worry about cleaning your cutlery hire prior to collection
We know how much of a pain cleaning cutlery hire is - especially after a big event - but did you know that cutlery is most likely to go missing while it is being cleaned?
It's for this reason we have had to make it compulsory for all cutlery items to have the send it back dirty option added at checkout. The only thing you need to do when you've finished using your cutlery hire is to make sure it's scraped clean of any food debris before you pack it ready for collection.
How delivery of cutlery works
At Expo Hire Solent we are committed to offering the very best quality of service. We clean and check all of our cutlery carefully before we pack it ready for delivery. It’s worth noting that we do not polish cutlery; if this is needed it’s worth setting some time aside to give items a little buff.
Finding out how much your delivery of event hire cost is easy. Simply tap the Expo Hire Solent logo anywhere on the website to be taken to the homepage where you will find the carriage calculator button.

We also list all possible surcharges on that page. If any of these are applicable, they are confirmed in the checkout once you have reconfirmed your delivery address and dates, and are itemised in full so there are no nasty surprises before you pay.
