Modern Thanksgiving Table

Modern Fall table at American Event Rentals. We made it unique with triangle plates and rosette linen. Perfect for Thanksgiving or any other fall event! Modern Fall table at American Event Rentals. Perfect for Thanksgiving or any other fall event!  We decided to make this one more modern and different than the other fall tables we have done. The combination of the triangle plate with the square plate makes it look and feel unique and artsy. We dressed up this chocolate table with an elegant rosette linen topper. A look many brides having been aiming towards. The beaded napkin rings add a nice touch to the plain black napkins. For table decor we decided to stay simple with the candles and candle holders but added some fun texture with the glitter pumpkins and fall garland.

Warm Leafy Table

Happy Fall Fall has approached us rapidly but the weather on the other hand has just finally caught up. Here at American Event Rentals we decided to redo the showroom and make it feel more cozy & “fally”. Here is one of the first tables we did, warm, cozy & leafy. We started off with a chocolate linen & then went to Dollar Tree to find more fall decor items that can make the table POP. We found a nice red leaf table mat & we decided to pull from that concept and just focus on leaves. The vase from the centerpiece is also from Dollar Tree & we decided to continue with the leaf concept and use leaves for the vase instead of flowers.

fall-napkin For the china, we used our platinum band dinner plates. For the napkins we used Victorian Gold Lamour napkins. We did an accordion fold and then folded it in half and put it through a napkin ring. If we you don’t have a napkin ring, you can easily use a rubber band to tie it in the center. After using a napkin ring or rubber band to keep the napkin fold just tape a leaf in the center as the final touch.

chair-leaves For the chairs we chose to use or elegant crystal chiavari chairs. We used fishing line to string some leaves through the chairs. Adding leaves to your table can make it feel cozier and more into the fall season.

Roses, Linens, & Napkins

Roses-&-Flowers-Overview

For this week’s table we decided to go all out with flowers and roses. We started the concept with just the beautiful rosette linen. Then we added in the crystal candelabra and realized it needed some color. That’s when the little flowers came into place. After adding in the china, glassware, and flatware we noticed that it still needed something to bring the plates and table all together. We then went to Pinterest and found an easy rose folded napkin DIY.

Garland Table

Garland-Table

Lately many people have been using garlands for their big events. Garlands can make any simple table stand out and seem like there was a lot of effort put into it. It’s also an affordable alternative to floral arrangements. Garlands look really nice hanging on backdrops and tables and they even smell really good. Another plus is that they can last pretty long without going bad, meaning you can decorate around the house with them after the big day!

Here is how we set up our garland in our show room. We wanted to go for a fairy theme so we added a lantern and some lights.

Fun Pinwheel Table

Pinwheel TableToday is the first day of summer! We decided to celebrate this fun season here at American Event Rentals with a colorful pinwheel table. This table is really fun and affordable to do if you’re on a budget. All we did for the center pieces is buy flower pots, rocks and pinwheels from Dollar Tree, and put them all together. We didn’t spend more than $10 to make these 3 pinwheel pots.

Making the pinwheel napkins was a little tricky at first because there was one step that got confusing. We had to watch a tutorial by Amy Buchanan to finally get the hang of it.

Stripes, Pink, & Gold

Stripe Whole Table

Many people have been really into Kate Spade designs. Crisp color, graphic prints and playful sophistication is what really makes her designs pop!

For this table our designer, Felicia, didn’t get inspired by Kate Spade. It wasn’t until afterwards that we noticed it that it did look like a Kate Spade inspired table. Felicia first started off with our striped table drape. Next she wanted to use something we already had here in the store for the decorations, that’s where the pink flower balls came in. Afterwards she chose gold as another accent color to bring in the whole table together and make it feel warm. The hot pink and the gold are what really made the striped table stand out!

Choosing Colors for Your Event

Pink Lemonade
Sometimes picking colors for an event can be really tricky. You have to make sure the colors you choose compliment each other well and not clash and be too much for the eye. Usually complimentary colors, colors that are opposite from each other on the color wheel work well. Analogous colors work well with each other as well, colors that are next to each other on the color wheel. So why not look around you and get inspiration from your surroundings? Use the season the event is in as inspiration to set the mood.

Here we got inspiration from many people’s favorite drink, pink lemonade! The colors here work well with each other because they are warm pastel colors. The magenta adds in a nice pop of color on the center piece and brings everything together.
