Spring is almost here! And if you’re planning a spring or early summer wedding this could be a very exciting and busy time!

At Best Rentals, we’re here to help you make the event run smoothly! If you’re in need of any tables, centerpieces, or other rental items we’re here to help! We’re also here to provide you with some wedding tips to make your day wonderful.

  1. Be prepared for rain. Have you heard it’s good luck for it to rain on your wedding day? If your wedding is in the spring this might happen, so be prepared.

    – Ask your photographer to bring tarpaulins just in case!

    – Invest in some cute, photo-worthy umbrellas

    – If your venue is outdoor, make sure there is an indoor option as well

    – You could also invest in cute rain boots to use in photos

  2. Go seasonal. Use spring flowers for your centerpieces and bouquets. (roses, sweet peas, peonies, etc)

Also, make sure the bridesmaid dresses are weather-appropriate. You don’t want them to be too uncomfortable!

3.    Allergies. This might not be something you would think about, but if you or anyone in the wedding party has allergies you want to be prepared! There is nothing worse than a bride with red eyes on her wedding day!

4.  It might be cold outside, so be prepared! You might want to find some nice shawls for the bridesmaids. If your guests will be outside, heat lamps might be necessary.

70’s-themed event!

Have you ever thought of hosting an event at an airplane hangar?

Over the weekend we did a 70’s-themed event with David Reilich, Dodd Technologies and Crystal Catering at the Indianapolis Regional Airport.

It was a complete success!

The guests arrived at a tented valet station that was carpeted and heated. From there they continued down a 100 ft. marquee tented walkway. Best Rentals provided the tenting and the heated covered walkway.

The Best Rentals team also carpeted the entire hanger, as well as built out all the performers’ dressing areas. These areas included custom leather couches and chairs.

Following David’s vision, Dodd’s design team created a 1970’s players club lounge. (Pictured below)

The main club area featured a custom dance floor with coaches, tables, chairs and a light show that was unforgettable. (Pictured below)

The food & beverage selections featured favorite foods and beverage from the 70’s, including cheese fondues and Harlem’s famous chicken and waffles. The beverages were throwbacks like Harvey Wallbangers and Little Kings beer.

Guests were truly amazed at the transformation that brought them back to a time of bell-bottom pants and eight track tapes. The outrageous setting was really spectacular!

So, if you’re thinking about hosting a more unique party, you can count on us to help make your event a success! We have the perfect tents, dance floors, tables, and event planning tips to provide you and your guests with an unforgettable time!

Setting the Table for Any Event

Whether you’re planning a formal event, or simply having guests over for dinner, follow these easy steps to set your table the proper way.

1. How many guests?

Before setting up the tables and chairs, it’s important to know how many guests are attending your event. Also, don’t forget about kids that may be attending as well!

2. Have you chosen linens?

Linens unify the components of the table by adding color and character, so choosing the right linens are very important! Depending on the occasion, different colors and patterns may be more appropriate than others. For example, if you’re planning a more formal event, you may want to choose linens that are lighter in color, such as white and ivory, and those with smoother textures. For more informal events, you have more flexibility and can choose colors of all shades, and textures from smooth to coarse. You can also mix and match the colors from the tablecloth to the runners and napkins.

Below are some examples of table designs we’ve created:

3. What are you serving for dinner?

It’s important to use the correct plates, so think about what food you will be serving. You should have separate plates for salad, bread, entrée and dessert. Below is an image to help guide you when setting your table!

 4. Beer or wine?

What drinks are you serving? Beer? Wine? Champagne? It’s essential to have the proper glasses for each drink, but it’s also acceptable to put two or three types of glasses on the table to give your guests choices. White wine, red wine, champagne and beer each have their own type of glass, so make it clear to your guests what you will be serving.

5. Have you chosen a centerpiece?

Centerpieces give your table the “wow” effect. They can be simple or complex and still look elegant. Some easy ideas include: using a clear glass vase for flowers, floating candles, or pinecones (holiday parties). You can also use other types of bowls and dishes to arrange flowers or fruits. Don’t be afraid to be creative!
