Party Rental Spring Collection

Love this color for spring and summer affairs. This linen is elegant but still casual enough for a warm weather event!

These napkin rings are my favorite accent on the table. Use your caterer's standard white china and napkins, but kick your design up a notch with these fantastic napkin rings!

Straight from the showroom, here are pictures from the Party Rental Spring Showcase last night in NYC. The biggest surprise for me: tables to match the economy. Gorgeous products but the showcase was not as elaborate as ones in the past. With this showcase and the marketing materials for Spring and Summer weddings, Party Rental is showing that they understand budgets are tight and they are willing to work with brides to make their dreams come true.

What does that mean for you? If you live in the tri-state area (NJ, NY, CT) take advantage of the Party Rental showrooms. Go with your wedding planner or designer (or with your MOH) and see the linens that they have, the flatware, china, glassware. You may not need to rent everything down to the water glasses (your venue or caterer should take care of this), but you can enhnace your table design with one or two amazing pieces. Maybe you go for a fork with an awesome design (they must have at least 20 different designs - and hey, your guests will have their hands all over them). Or you can opt for a water goblet that is incredibly chic or in your wedding colors (see the pictures below). One small element will be easier on the budget and enhance the look of your table!

The best thing about renting: someone else takes everything away at the end of the night, they clean it for you, and you get to go away on your honeymoon without a care. Not to mention the rental industry is inherently green, using the same pieces over and over again saves on waste!

Mint fortuny linen adds a little bit of texture to your table without a big price tag. Several plates and chargers are showcased here, but you can create the same look with just one. Simple votive candles (usually included in your package price at the hotel or venue) add a glow to the table. The wedding colors are enhanced with green water goblets (see close up below).

I love these goblets because of the etching. They are fancy enough for a formal affair and casual enough for a backyard wedding. If you aren't setting an extensive table, guests can use them for water or wines!

They showcased many filmy overlays and linens that are perfect for your white wedding fantasies.

Perfect for a semi-formal affair. Brown and white stripes can be accented by a variety of colors. This turquoise looks very elegant for a late afternoon or evening wedding. Create you own look with napkin rings and candles (here the look is modern but you can include more classic elements).
