Spring and summer parties allow us to stretch our arms a bit and gather with other people. Being equipped for the activities, the meals and the guests is vital, and the Celebrations party rental store in Lacey has solid experience in supplying those items. Seasonal events are always on the radar, and planning can’t start too soon. Bring your notes, sketches and vision into the store to start putting the pieces together to make it a reality.
Clients at Celebrations remain in control of design for their event and can trust the staff’s genuine interest in a successful outcome. With over 40 years of experience behind the family-owned business, their expertise can also be counted on. “One of the most important things to know is our understanding of the events customers are having,” Celebrations Manager Dave Light explains. “It’s their big, one-time event. We want to make it as special as they want it. It’s important to us too. When our guys go out there and set up, they have a sense of pride in the fact that they are at a very special day in people’s lives, and they are counting on us to make it happen.”
Weddings are popular in spring and summer and can become a beautifully designed experience for the couple in the spotlight. The overall ambiance, the space, the lighting, the temperature and the décor are all important considerations. Celebrations’ inventory of rental supplies provides an array of options to create a grand ceremony and reception.
If an outdoor tent is needed, the expected and even unexpected weather determine its type and configuration. The number of guests and types of activity inside a tent determine its size and flooring. Celebrations has columns and arches for the focal point when vows are exchanged. Tuscan style columns, a heart-shaped arch or the simple curve can be decorated with any preference of draped fabrics or the client’s own floral arrangements. White folding chairs or seats with fabric covers and ties are available rentals for guest seating. Thematic elements such as votive candle holders, vases on colored tablecloths and matching napkins make reception tables inviting. Catered food can be kept in shiny chaffing dishes and served from the variety of dinnerware and glassware choices. Celebrations can also start off the planning phase with wedding invitation services.
Celebrations has experience setting up tents and equipment for brewfests, the Lacey Spring Fun Fair, charity events, golf tournaments and the dog show. Each type of activity is outfitted for the number of guests, location and function. Portable kitchen equipment can support catering crews. Coolers and dispensers for beverages are available in a variety of styles and sizes. Dishes, glassware and flatware can be rented along with the right tables and chairs for a particular activity. Outdoor, seasonal conditions must be considered, and staff can help mitigate weather effects in the spring and occasional high heat in the summer. Shades for hot sun, fans or air coolers may all help in warm weather. Evening event guests can be kept warm with portable heaters.
Birthdays, anniversaries and awards dinners are common equipment rental events. Experiences like these generate lasting memories, and the decorative and functional items that make it unique are likely available through Celebrations. In order to dance, a dance floor needs to be set up. In order to laugh over the home videos, a projector and viewing screen need to be ready. A small stage and a lectern can transform the highlighted speeches and awards. Gatherings also mean sharing food together, which may require long buffet tables for potluck dishes, sheet cakes, chocolate fountains or perhaps a five-tier cupcake tree. Celebrations can also make suggestions of other local party support for catering, floral displays and even music DJs.
Decades of experience and longtime employees who take pride in their work make a big difference. Staff have witnessed the challenges and joys that come with event planning and can help guide people through choices and decisions. Browsing their inventory on the Celebrations website is a great way to get started. Variety and options make the creative ideas flow, and the inventory assortment allows for those fun choices and flexibility in planning. Turning such important details over to a big venue that may have rigid parameters may change the vision. Convenience is important too, and clients can decide whether they pick up most rented items or have them delivered.
Sketch it out, make your list and bring it in to start planning your experience. Just because you don’t see it in the show room, doesn’t mean they can’t get it. New rental items make their way into the inventory yearly as Light attends an annual conference for the rental industry. New items, more options and more color schemes are developed all the time. Celebrations enjoys and takes pride in helping people prepare for events and demonstrates respect for their special gatherings.
