Deck The Halls: Renting For The Holidays 101

Four Tips For Renting Like A Pro During The Holidays

Happy Holidays! It’s the happiest time of year; Gatherings are being planned and cheer is in the air. Want to know how you can rent event furniture- like a pro? Keep reading, to see our top 4 tips for renting during the holidays!


Home for the Holidays

One of the major benefits of renting event furniture for your holiday gathering, is that your abode will be styled to the nines without the added need of storage. Plus, you and your guests will be able to share a meal over a beautiful tablescape- one that’s sure to be brought up at next year’s gathering!

Some items to consider renting for your holiday shindig:

Be proactive- don’t wait for the new year (like most of your resolutions).

It’s a busy time of year- not just for holiday parties, but weddings too! This means availability is going faster than you can say santa. Early bird gets the worm, so we suggest submitting your wishlist at least two weeks before your event. Remember, items such as tents will need to be given more advance notice! Also, since it is busy season: we might experience higher call volumes, therefore we recommend submitting your requests either via email or our website’s wishlist form!

Be flexible with the delivery / pick up / drop off date!

This tip is crucial! We love the holidays and our staff does too. In celebration, we close up shop on certain holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc). This may result in certain days leading up to your holiday event being unavailable for delivery or pick up. To secure your preferred delivery time/day (etc), try to book your items well in advance! We understand that last-minute parties happen (can we get an invite?), so we’ll work with you to schedule a drop off / pick up time that’s convenient for you and fits within our holiday delivery schedule.

Understand the pick-up procedures!

While we allow some items to be picked up from our warehouse, there are a few ground rules to follow. We know… sorry! Prior to your pick up date, our office staff will go over all the things you’ll need to know and do! One thing to plan for: is having a covered vehicle, such as a SUV or compact car. This allows for whatever you’re picking up to be secured and not in danger of falling out onto a roadway. Be sure to let us know if you have any questions regarding our pick up procedures!

Fall Color Palette Inspiration

Pantone Color Report Fall 2018

 

 

We get so giddy with the thought of Fall… Especially when us Floridians spend most of the year on the surface of the sun. Yes we’re being dramatic, but it’s also somewhat true. One of the things we love most about Fall are the color palettes, because at the base of every great design is a perfectly matched color scheme!

In this blog, we’re serving up some Fall color palette inspiration along with the intention behind each hue.

If you’ve been around the block, you know that each year Pantone releases their top picks for seasonal colors. This momentous occasion could definitely be considered the event industry’s NFL/NBA draft. 

It’s so exciting to see what colors we may get to play with throughout the year, as they catch the eyes of our clients. 

Institute Press characterized Pantone’s picks for Fall 2018 as: “Autumnal hues that evoke the feeling of leaves on the forest floor, rich plumage and twilight reveal a modern fall palette of deep and rich tones with outbursts of colorful surprise.” Now that sounds like a romance novel- so color us ready for a stroll through the forest.

While this doesn’t look like a “traditional Fall color palette” we love its opportunity for unique looks. After all, self-expression is always in style!

 


 

 

Red Pear: Deliciously deep red, whose luscious depth entices.

Valiant Poppy: Brave and outgoing red shade effusive in its allure.

Nebulas Blue: Reminiscent of twilight, a thoughtful, starry-eyed blue.

Ceylon Yellow: Savory and spicy yellow adds an exotic touch.

Martini Olive: Smooth, sophisticated and urbane green adds depth to the Fall/Winter 2018 palette.

Russet Orange: This forest floor orange speaks to earthen warmth.

Ultra Violet (Color of the year!): Inventive and imaginative Ultra Violet lights the way for what is yet to come.

Crocus Petal: A cultivated and refined hue adds a light and airy spring-like feeling demand.

Limelight: Animated and effervescent, a pungent yellow-green becomes the center of attention.

Quetzal Green (Our personal fav!): A deep elegant blue-green hue suggestive of rich plumage.

Our good friend Rebekkah, from Runway Events, collaborated with Chelsea Renay Photography to create this visually STUNNING photoshoot. We fell in love with the deep hues, rich wood décor, and the gorgeous model at the center of it all. Rebekkah styled the shoot and combined her vintage pieces with our rustic pieces creating the most perfect and awe-inspiring design! This is a great example of how you can mix-and-match in order to capture your unique and personal style! With a back-drop of lush greenery and show-stopping décor, this photoshoot has us feeling inspired and ready for what the rest of the Fall season has to offer!

So, pull up a vintage-inspired chair at our farm table and sneak a peek at this beautiful outdoor photoshoot!

Each year, Michele Butler Events designs a photoshoot centered around Halloween and this time the theme was “The Bride of Frankenstein!” Que the lightning and scary music!
