When it comes to putting on a big event, trends affect a lot more than just what the guests will be wearing. In fact, trends can affect everything from the style of the tent, arrangement of the tables and colors of the chairs – not to mention the design of the linens! What they also affect is the new inventory we’re bringing into our warehouse during any given season.
Whether it’s for a wedding, graduation ceremony, corporate event or family celebration, there are new trends constantly emerging that impact the most popular colors and styles of event rentals. And in order to keep up with this change in demand, we are always adding new items to our inventory. Let’s take a look at the hottest new rentals we have in stock for the 2014 season.
The Timeless Trend of White Chairs
The staple of most weddings and commencement ceremonies, white folding chairs, are always in high demand. This year we amped up our inventory with one thousand more chairs to ensure we can accommodate the largest events, even if they overlap on any particular weekend.
Rustic and Earthy Natural Wood Chairs
Picture an outdoor wedding on a farm or in a meadow. The event rentals should complement the feel of the venue and for a rustic and natural look, we have just what you need. Last year we invested in natural wood folding chairs that have created quite a buzz. Based on their popularity, we’ll be looking to add even more to our inventory soon!
Thousands of Square Feet of Tent Vinyl
During the summer months, people love to throw outdoor events. We’re also seeing an increase in outdoor events even during the cooler months since we can supply heating to our tents. What this means for us is that we can never have enough tenting vinyl on hand. This year we have invested in more than 10,000 square-feet to ensure our tents are in top quality for events year-round.
Much like our tents, we want to be sure that we have a large enough inventory of linens to supply our customers with top quality rentals in the color of their choice. But more than just a broad range of colors, trends are incorporating more and more texture, patterns and sheen. To stay ahead of demand, we have increased our inventory of linens, including specialty “majestic” linens that deliver that “wow” factor. The majestic linens come in café, caribbean, charcoal, coral and cornsilk colors (120” round).
Elegant Chiavari Chairs
Chiavari chairs make quite a statement in a banquet hall or under a tent. They have the power to completely transform a space and define the atmosphere of the celebration. Best of all, you’re not limited by color. We recently increased our inventory of black, mahogany, gold and silver chiavari chairs.
The Ever-Popular White Resin Chairs
White resin folding chairs are a smart and stylish option for outdoor wedding ceremonies and receptions. They’re durable, yet comfortable and are also quite economical – and they fly out of our warehouse during wedding season! We have added 250 more to our inventory to accommodate the steady increase in demand.
Colored Glass Plates
Even the most delicious food will fail to stand out at a party without the right presentation. One hot trend in event design is to serve your appetizers or hors d’oeuvres on colored glass plates. These provide both function and style to an event which really gives you a great bang for your buck. More than just the exquisite colors, this dinnerware comes in unique shapes and textures to blend with an overall theme or completely contrast an otherwise simple event design with a pop of whimsy.
Power for Your Party
Last but not least, we have added a very “powerful” rental item to our inventory. The 20KW Wacker Neuson generator provides enough electricity to power a house! You may wonder how a single event could require all that power, but when you consider that many caters cook their food on-site with stoves and ovens big enough to serve hundreds of guests, you’ll understand that you can never have too much power at your party. Best of all, this generator is designed to produce a steady but quiet stream of power, making it ideal for special events.
