Your Cart is Empty
Solution: write or attach your guest's name on an item you WANT them to have as a guest favour.
Whether it's their individual name piped in icing on a cookie, their name tied to a single posy vase, personalised calligraphied perspex place card or a hand-written name sticker on a guest favour, this will make it obvious that THIS item is theirs to take home.
Multiples of the item
If you've grouped several of the same products together on the table, such as small lanterns, the sheer quantity can look like a guest favour because it looks like there's enough for your fellow table guests to select one as a take-home gift.
Solution: Make sure any multiple decor items are far less than the number of guests at the table. Don't place 20 hired tealight candle holders on a table of 10 guests, for example, or your guests will think they're decor to be taken home.
End of night clearing-up
Your venue staff can accidentally cause you to lose things by clearing up the wrong items and placing them together.
Solution: Brief your venue staff and event team on what can be taken home, what is being rented, and what needs to be taken to the kitchen etc for safe-keeping for the decor hire company. Check that the rented items have a "this is the property of" type stickers underneath.
