How to Choose the Right Rental Chair for your Event

Any one of these ABC’s can be THE most important factor in deciding How to Choose the Right Rental Chair for your Event. That is important to make sure that when you are renting your chairs that you choose a company that provides you with options of good, better, best – and within these categories have a selection of styles. Appeal, Budget and Comfort I have helped people plan events for many occasions – birthday parties, weddings, festivals, graduation parties, commencement ceremonies, and so many more. Over time, I have learned that there are three things that are most important to people when making their choice – I call them the ABC’s of chair rentals. Let’s start with Good Rental Chairs… Poly Vinyl Folding ChairBistro Chair An extremely popular choice for graduations, festivals, or causal backyard events are Vinyl Folding Chairs. These chairs are an upscale version of a traditional folding chair – but instead of the metal back and seat – they feature a vinyl back and seat. They look nicer than a standard folding chair and can be used indoors or outdoors. These are a top contender for budget and they aren’t bad in the comfort area either unless you plan to sit all day. Another Good Chair is a French Style Bistro chair. Bistro chairs are made of molded plastic, have a curved back and a rounder than average seat. If comfort is your top ABC, then this chair is the perfect sit. Let’s Move on to Better Rental Chairs… Padded Folding Chairs Padded Folding chairs are perfect for any event or formal gathering. The convenience of having a folding chair with a comfortable pad is what puts this chair in the ‘Better Category’. The wider legs are great for outdoor weddings or events without giving your guests that ‘sinking feeling in the grass. Conference Chairs are names appropriately. With lush padding on the seat and back mounted on a metal frame, these chairs a great for a long sit. In meetings it will keep the guest listening to the speaker rather than arching their backs to stretch. These chairs are also classy enough that they could be used at dinners or receptions. And now, onto the Best Rental Chairs Chiavari ChairX-Back Chairs Chiavari Chairs are synonymous with style and elegance. These chairs have even been used at White House State Dinners. Designed with each component made for the specific stresses it will carry, these chairs will wow you guest with craftsmanship and comfort. X-Back French Country chairs with removable padded seats are an upscale option to traditional wood folding chairs. Whether you are looking for a rustic feel or for the most elegant of events, these stackable chairs are a popular option and very comfortable. Always keep in mind, it is your day…Choose whatever will make you happy and don’t forget the ABC’s when you decided How to Choose the Right Rental Chair for your Event.

2021 Wedding Trends

2021 Wedding Trends Tent Rental

2021 Wedding Trends Without a doubt, the pandemic has had an impact on almost every facet of our lives.  2020 saw the cancellation of many normal events as our states went into shut down mode.  Couples who had planned weddings had to cancel or postpone until 2021 are embracing the idea of shorter guest lists and more personalized attention to each individual.  The creative wedding trends of this year embrace both the celebratory nature of marriage as well the need to provide safety and social distancing at the wedding reception.  Here are some fun 2021 Wedding Trends that have developed because of our ‘new normal’. #1 Outdoor Weddings With the desire to maintain social distancing and be in an area where fresh air is abundant, the number one wedding trend for 2021 is tented weddings.  A wedding tent rental can create a venue for your big day in your own backyard.  With versatility in shapes and sizes, a wedding tent be customized to include anything your heart desires. Outdoor brunch weddings are also trending so couples can take advantage of the natural light while enjoying the shelter the tent is providing overhead. #2 Reception Trends A huge emphasis has been placed on providing alternative entertainment at the reception.  Although a DJ is still the first choice, consider additional ways to entertain guests who may not be comfortable going out on the dance floor.  Some popular choices are stand-up comedians, karaoke, photo booths, backyard games, bounce houses for the kids, illusionists, and live painters.  The idea of this trend is to entertain guests who prefer to be at their table and providing alternatives for those who may want to be outside. Another big trend is mismatched tables, chairs, and linen colors along with unusual floor plans.  The idea behind this trend is to create social distancing as well as seating families or groups who live in the same household together.  It will not be unusual to see tables for 4, 6, 8 or 10 people at any wedding reception.  Do not worry though, this style still photographs beautifully. #3 Food Serving Trends Plated dinners have become the pattern for many wedding receptions to avoid crowds at a buffet line.  Because of fewer guests at many weddings who typically know the couple well, this intimate restaurant-style of dining has led to a trend of ‘mini-toasts’ where each guest shares a memory of the couple throughout the meal. Appetizers have evolved to provide them to guests without having servers wander through groups with trays.  Bento boxes or mini picnic baskets with an appetizer selection for each guest have become popular, as well as individual charcuterie boards for each guest served at their table. #4 Welcome/Celebration Boxes This concept is to provide each guest with an individual box at the start of the wedding which contains items such as hand sanitizer, customized masks, favors, wedding programs, or anything else you would like to add.  This gives each guest untouched individual items rather than having […]

How to Heat Outdoor Gatherings in the Winter

As the Wisconsin winter approaches with many restrictions around indoor gatherings in place many events are being moved outside. Naturally holding an outdoor event during the Wisconsin winter requires a heat source, of which there are numerous options. For enclosed or semi-enclosed areas furnace heaters provide a steady stream of heat to fill a space. For more open areas heaters that radiate heat to create a consistent “bubble” of warm air may be more appropriate. Whatever the needs of your event there is almost guaranteed to be a solution for your event.    Furnace heaters are the perfect solution for heating enclosed or semi-enclosed spaces such as tents, garages and enclosed porches. These heaters require a propane and electricity source. They sit outside of your tent or structure and heat outside air that is then blown into the structure through a duct. Furnace heaters may be direct-fired, meaning that combustions products are present in the heated air, or indirectly fired, meaning that no combustions products are present in the air. Both heaters provide air that is safe to breath, however, direct fired heaters do require some venting and may therefore require an opened window or a cracked open garage door. Tents do not require any additional venting as they are not an airtight structure. Furnace heaters come in a variety of sizes, and choosing the one that is the right size for you is essential to having a comfortably heated space.    A furnace heater is a great way to heat a tent To determine the proper size of your furnace heater there are several important factors to consider. First among them, is the size of the area you wish to heat. It takes approximately 300 BTUs of heat per square foot to raise the temperature of a tent structure by 40 degrees. To calculate this multiply the length and the width of the structure you wish to heat. Next, determine the amount that you wish to raise the temperature in your space. For example, if it is 20 degrees outside and you wish to have a 60 degree room you would be raising the temperature 40 degrees. Finally, multiply the square footage by the appropriate amount of BTUs to heat the area. The value you get will be the number of BTU’s per hour that you need to maintain your temperature increase.    For example, if I wish to raise the temperature of a tent that is 20 feet wide, by 40 feet long by 40 degrees, this is how I would go about finding the number of BTU’s per hour that I need. First, multiply the width and the length to get the square footage. In this case 20ft X 40ft = 800sqft. Then multiply the square footage by the appropriate number of BTUs, in this case 800sqft X 300BTUs = 240,000BTU. Please keep in mind when selecting a furnace heater that this estimate assumes that your space is enclosed and has no insulation. Be sure to adjust your estimates if your situation is different!    The other […]

Popular Wedding Reception Favors

Many brides and grooms need ideas for wedding reception favors. There was a time when the creativity level of the favors you could buy was not that great. Wedding favors were pretty interchangeable from wedding to wedding. Thankfully now we do not have that problem! It may even seem like the problem is that there are too many choices. Where does a bride start? With there being so many difficult decisions to make during wedding planning, you do not want what favor to give be one of them! To make things easier I would suggest you answer a few questions first. How much money can you afford to spend? How many favors will you give to each guest? What type of favor do you want to give out as a token of your appreciation? Wedding favors all cost a little different, and it of course depends on the quality of the favor as well as the type of favor. Many favors fall into the range of $ 1-2 a piece where as others can cost anywhere between $ 5-10 each. Many brides and grooms will start narrowing their options by what they can afford to buy all their guests. One way to lighten your financial load is to make the favors yourself. You can do this by purchasing favor bags or boxes as well as some bulk food items like Jordan almonds or mints and filling them yourself. Or you could always get your bridal party to help! How many favors per guest might also depend upon your budget. However if you are looking to give more than one favor a popular way to do this is to give one favor per guest and then have a candy dish in the center of each table filled with candy or other sweet treats. Another would be to make your own favor bags and include smaller favors with the large one like match books, food items or magnets. Now that you have thought out how many favors and what you are willing to spend have you decided what type of favor to give out? This is something you should spend a little time thinking about. There are many possibilities such as flower seed packages, candles, candle holders, candy, coasters and bookmarks. Themed weddings have even more specific choices available to a bride and groom. Usually these are wedding favors with certain designs or themes in mind. Like beach weddings could have favors decorated in seashells, sand castles, beach umbrellas or sand pails. For those brides and grooms who share passions like golf, motorcycles, hockey or camping, you would want to find themed favors to emphasize those passions. Now that you have some great ideas it is time start shopping. Keep your guests in mind when you shop as these favors are a token of your appreciation, you do want them to like them. Be creative and keep an open mind and most of all have fun! Pamela Kazmierczak is an expert in […]
