New Tabletop Look from Party Rental

Oh the amazing things that you can find at rental companies. If you live near a major city, make it a point to take a trip to various rental showrooms. Each company has its own invetory and its own style (don't forget to include some prop houses too if possible!). If you can't get to a showroom, search design portfolios on their websites (usually a mixture of designs that in-house reps create and designs put together by event planners using their products). You can create any look without having to purchase a thing!
Get the Admiral Brocade Table look above from Party Rental Ltd.. Ask for:
  • Admiral Brocade tablecloth (its reversible too!)
  • Elite White Square Charger, Dinner & Lunch plates
  • Carnegie Hill flatware
  • Riedel Red & White Wine glasses
  • Blue Ring Tinted glasses
  • Chocolate Church Linen Napkin
  • Square Lucite Napkin Ring

Not included in this list are a variety of hurricane shades, pillar candles, and votive candle holders. Go crazy and create your own style - for your Thanksgiving table, your engagement party or your wedding!
