Making the Most...

Outdoor weddings are beautiful and using the right tent can make all the difference. A tent can be seen from a distance, causing curiosity and welcoming visitors. As important as the tent is for your event, the story being told underneath the tent is most endearing. For your next event, make sure you read this Do and Don't list to make sure you have everything set in place.

*Cover any metal on the tent. If possible, use an inner tent liner. This makes it look more crisp and clean.
*Set the tent legs at the greatest possible height.
*Use vertical space wisely be adding chandeliers or other hanging decor (we have a NEW, gorgeous chandelier for rent- just ask about details)!
*Tell your story with vibrant colors and make it look like YOU. This will set the mood.

*Try to be everything for everyone. Decorate according to your own taste and don't worry about others. Suggestions are welcome, but remember that you can't please everyone. Over the top decor trying to enfuse all different styles can look messy.
*Use sidewall.
*Create physical barriers to prevent easy access.

I hope this helps. Let us know if you have any questions for your rental needs. Remember, no matter what it's for, let us ACE your next event!

My 7 Cookie Baking Secrets...

Next time you're in the mood to host an event, give us a call for any of your rental needs. We can take care of your tables, tents, chairs, linens, china, glassware, flatware, etc. Not only will we provide those items; but if you ask, we may have a few other tips in store...

For instance, follow these simple rules for baking the best cookies every time. I promise it works and it is amazing how accurate this information is.

1. SPLIT THE DOUGH: Only work with half the dough at one time. Handling the dough too much can cause the cookies to be hard.

2. CHOOSE BAKING SHEETS WISELY: Bake cookies on shiny, heavy aluminum baking sheets. Dark sheets tend to absorb heat, burning them.

3. KNOW HOW TO GREASE: Grease the baking sheet with cooking spray, not margarine.

4. PURCHASE PARCHMENT PAPER: You can avoid greasing the sheet all together.

5. DON'T OVERLOAD THE OVEN: Place ONE baking sheet on the middle rack.

6. USED COOLED BAKING SHEETS: Let baking sheets cool between batches.

7. COOL BEFORE STORING: Let cookies cool completely before storing in an airtight container.

This should help make better cookies each time you bake! I've got plenty more useful party tips, so stay tuned...

Event Planning Tips

Happy Thursday!

I figured some of you out there could use a few planning tips so I came up with a short check list to go through once you start planning.

Depending on the size of your event, you may need to first choose members for a committee. Secondly, develop a plan and/or goals and stick to a timeline. If you can't set a specific date quite yet, shoot for deadlines and make sure they are known publicly for all members associated. Once you've chosen an official date for your event, plan on a "day of event" meeting to discuss any last minute items that need to be taken care of. Discuss specific duties, as well as answer any questions at this time. On the day of your event, make sure everyone knows where they are supposed to be and pass out a schedule/itinerary so that things can be executed in a timely fashion. Once the event is over, make sure to thank everyone that participated and send out any follow surveys (if necessary).

In the meantime, if you would like a professional to help you with any part of your planning process, give us a call. That's what we're here for, afterall. Not only can we take care of your tables, chairs, tents, linens, china, etc., but we also take on the role of event planners from time to time! We would be more than happy to assist you!

Let us ACE your next event...

An Elegant Wedding Touch- Quilled Table Numbers

If you're trying to find ways to save money on your wedding, making your own decor is a good place to start! Create your own table setting numbers while adding a little art into your life. Quilled Table Numbers are so gorgeous and so simple. Here are the easy steps:

For each digit, curl one end of a 1/4 inch wide strip of quilling paper by wrapping it around quill tool or the end of a screwdriver (whatever you have handy!)

Then, using template, form the numbers. Start with the curled end and bend paper for curves and creases. Trim paper, leaving a few extra inches and then curl that end. Apply white craft glue to edge of number with toothpick and attach the card. Using tweezers; hold in place to secure.

**Optional: To create a stand, cut a triangle out of card stock and glue edge to card's back.

Super cute and super easy! You're welcome :)
