Fourth of July


Fourth of July is almost here. This is the time when many beaches, lakes, and other family friendly places get packed. Why not relax at home during this time and have a barbecue? There is no need to be dealing with a huge crowd and getting stuck in traffic just because you’re trying to get to that special place. Summer is the best time of the year to gather friends and family together over a delicious barbecue meal. We have the best equipment to have at your next barbecue including a barbecue that comes in 2′ by 3′ or 2′ by 5′. We also carry a wide selection of chairs and tables.

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.
