So how do you hire a butler for a day?
Pick your recipient
So this is the part you decide who the present of a butler for a day is for. This can be for anyone you know including yourself. It is a fantastic gift idea and would be a special gift that someone will certainly never forget. The world of butlering is so fascinating and many people want to experience how the ‘other half live’. Some people may never be able to experience having a private butler because of the price, so why not gift someone this amazing experience.
This could also be a great idea for yourself if you have a major event on the horizon or a party coming up. A butler can make your life so much easier and can help with many tasks in order to ensure the house is in good condition. This will allow you to either relax or focus on other things. Having a butler look after your guests also will provide them with a night they will never forget.

Welcome your personal butler for the day!
So it is the big day! On the day that the experience was scheduled and the time specified the butler will arrive at your house. The butler would be fully briefed on any special events that are taking place or any special requests the client has for them. You can decide if you want your butler to turn up to the house already suited and booted. If not, they will need somewhere to get changed. You can then enjoy having your own personal butler, working for your every beck and call. From helping out with special occasions or more regular tasks like answering the phone, greeting guests or pouring you tea or champagne!
What tasks can the butler for a day assist with?
As mentioned briefly above our butlers can assist with a range of different tasks or requests. These could be more formal requests or more unique tasks for them to assist with. Some of these tasks are:
Throwing a dinner party
This is a great way to impress guests that are attending the party. The butler will be there to greet the guests and make them feel welcome. They can then assist with preparing the table for the meal and taking the food to the guests. The butler will then be on hand throughout the evening to offer any additional food or beverages and any wine service that is required.
A butler can help be your chauffeur for the day if this was agreed upon beforehand. They can drive you door to door to different shops, can help by taking bags and even help you to get to any appointments you may have. This will allow you to get about without the stress of having to drive, this opportunity also gives the recipient the options to wear whatever they want in an air-conditioned car.
Teaching you about Silver Service
Our butlers all have certifications and qualifications in silver service and etiquette. If you are interested you could ask your butler to teach you some of these skills. From how you should behave to how to prepare a table, there are many fascinating things a butler can help you with.
Helping you to relax!
Whilst the butler is there you could put your feet up and relax. The butler will handle tasks like answering the door, taking phone calls, bringing you beverages and helping you with table preparation etc. So you wouldn’t have to worry about getting these things done.
These are just a few of the many ways a butler could assist you for a day.
