Fourth of July

4th-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.

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.

Rosette Linen

Many people have really been into rosette linen because of it’s unique look and texture. When using rosette linen you do not need too much for decoration since the linen alone has a lot going on. It’ll transform any basic event into a beautiful elegant one.

Rosette linen can be rented at American Event Rentals as a custom order which only comes in select colors. It can be ordered as runners, toppers, or table cloth.
