Tent Tent Hooray

By: Alex Skrocki

Here at Party Time Rentals we have a variety of tent styles to choose from. Our two most popular tent styles are our Structured and Festival Tents.

The Structured Tent is designed for any type of event due to their durable and sleek design. This is simply because, the tent top slides through the aluminum framing to ensure a tight fit. Additionally, these tents can handle more weight, allowing for the option to hang accessories such as lights, lights, audio/video equipment, and decor elements. 

The Festival Tent pulls your focus up with its high, swooping peaks and tight white fabric. The most unique feature of this tent is that the center polls are suspended in the air with cables, allowing for there to be no center pole. These tents are popularly used for parties, concerts, and corporate activities. 

In terms of tent sizes, we have tents as small as 20’x20’ and as large as 60’x120’. To keep it somewhat simple for your reference, our base widths 20’, 30’, 40’, and 60’ and our lengths go up roughly in increments of 10’ or 20’. The capacity of your tent determines solely on the desired usage. For example our 30’x60’ tent sits 180 people “sit down dinner style.” However, if you wanted to add an appropriate sized dance floor, four cocktail tables, and a DJ area, you would need to get a 40’x80’ tent. Which for your reference, sits 320 people “sit down dinner style.”

If this all still seems a little confusing, here at Party Time Rentals we have welcoming and knowledgeable Event Consultants ready to help you with all your Tent Rental needs!

Sweet Summertime

By: Alex Skrocki, Party Time Rentals Event Rental Consultant

Beat the Texas Heat this summer with the help of Party Time Rentals!

With temperatures reaching into the mid 90’s staying cool is a high priority. Here at Party Time Rentals, we have an array of items that can make any event so much cooler!

One of our more popular rentals during this sunny season is our Sno Cone Machine. Our Basic Sno Cone Kit comes with the machine, operating instructions, and an ice scoop. To complement this rental item, we sell Sno Cone cups, syrup pumps and just about any Sno Cone flavor you can think of– from sour apple to wedding cake, we have it all!

If our Sno Cone Machine is not keeping you cool enough, you might want to consider renting one of our cooling fans. Our most popular fan during this sunny season is our Way Cool Fan. This fan is a 2-speed quiet blower that is able to move air up to 100 ft. All you need to successfully operate this item is an outlet and a water source! Who knew staying cool could be this simple?!

In addition to all of our rentals that will keep you cool, we have linens ranging from peachy oranges, to blue sky blues that will assist you in looking cool. Whether you are having a Backyard Barbeque or a Summer Soiree, we have the perfect linen for you! All of our linens are displayed on our website as well as on our showroom floor.
All in all, staying cool and beating the heat is not an easy challenge here in Texas. However with the help of Party Time Rentals, we hope to help you keep your summer days cool and eventful!

What size linens do I need?

Coming up with your event design can feel a bit overwhelming. When it comes to linens, there are so many fabrics, patters, textures, and colors… then just when you think you have it all nailed down you realize that now you need to figure out what sizes you need! We’ve come up with a little cheat sheet to make the event planning process a little easier.

Guest tables typically come in the following standard sizes:

-48″ round (floor length= 108″)

-60″ round (floor length=120″)

-72″ round (floor length= 132″)

-6’x30″ (floor length= 90×132)

-8’x30″ (floor length = 90×156)

If Party Time Rentals does not carry the linen you want, you can always go up a size. The linen will just puddle a little bit on the floor. You can also go down a size and the linen will pull up off the floor a few inches.

Talk to your even rental consultant if you have any questions on linen sizing.

I Do, to Color Too!

It’s no secret that I love color.

When a bride comes in to Party Time to pick out wedding rentals, one of my favorite questions to ask is “What are your colors?”. Sometimes not only will she tell me an accent color, but she will describe an expansive palette of playful hues. This is what I live for.

Did you know that linens are one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to add color into your venue? You are able to blanket entire tables in beautiful shades of anything and everything. Drape ceilings and walls in an array of fabrics and warmth. Gone are the days to expect an all-white reception. 2019 will be the year to be bold and unique! Within your table settings, you can cover every inch of it in something different.

Grey china? Check! Rose gold flatware? Check! Blue glasses? DONE.

Another question I often get asked by brides is “Do people typically mix linen colors?” My answer is- Why not?

Do you want all of your guest tables to have sage linens and salmon napkins? Or do you want to alternate sage and salmon linens with all ivory napkins? It’s up to you, and whatever you choose it will turn out beautiful.

At Party Time Rentals in College Station, we have an entire wall devoted to color coded linen sections. Chances are, if we don’t have it, we may be able to order it for you! If you’re feeling unsure, we have wonderful experienced event rental consultants in store to help guide you to the vision you are wanting to achieve. We are looking forward to meeting you and I hope that you say I do, to Color Too!

I’m Dreaming of a Coral Christmas

December is magical for everyone. Some people look forward to the family holidays all year. Some embrace the season’s hot chocolates and mulled wines whether or not the weather calls for them. Students have been waiting for their winter break since the first day of classes and it never feels like it comes soon enough! All of these things are great- truly! – but for me there is one event in December I look forward to more than anything else – the official announcement of the Pantone Color of the Year!

 

I know – this seems crazy. I love my time with my family gathered around the fireplace. I love fuzzy socks and scarves and pumpkin spice lattes with friends – but the Pantone Color of the Year rules my life, and whether or not you realize it, it rules yours too.

“Living Coral” is going to be everywhere this year. Pantone’s announcement in early December marks the official start of every design fad for the next year – fashion, interior design, graphic design, cosmetics, and of course, event design. 2019 is going to be all about Coral and we are guaranteed to be planning a ton of these bright, youthful, energetic weddings.

This is the first color since 2014’s “radiant orchid” that you can really get palette creative with. Coral has always been a popular spring shade but I’m excited to see how we can tie it in throughout the rest of the year – because, believe me, you’ll be seeing “living coral” in your handbags, your shoes, your couch pillows, your hand towels, your toothbrush, and just about everywhere else. You’re even bound to see it on your favorite celebrities, since we’ve already been graced by stunning coral outfits from Gigi Hadid and Jennifer Lopez since the announcement.

So what is this going to look like for Texas weddings?

Clean and bright!IMG_1202

Palette: Coral, White, Moss, Light Blue, Silver

Details: Dainty Patterns, Frosted Glass, Mirrored Edges

Experience: Donut Wall, Mimosa Bar, Themed Selfie Stations

Bold and beautiful!

Palette: Coral, Chartreuse, Fuchsia, Teal

Details: Geometric Prints, Hammered Metals, Bone White China

Experience: Adventurous Family Style, Acrylic Chairs, Finger Painting Guest Book

Soft and vintage!

Palette: Coral, Hunter Green, Ivory, Burgundy

Details: Velvet, Brass Accents, Stripes

Experience: Tufted Couches, Sangria Station, Cigar Bar

The most interesting thing about the coral trend this year is definitely how versatile the shade is. The coral palette can range from pink to orange to copper, and I am always obsessed with copper! I write this as I sip from my copper A&M coffee mug, I promise. Hammered copper chafers are going to be on all of my buffet lines this year, and my place settings will all be framed with copper flatware.

For those of you really obsessed with this year’s daring pick, you can put it to good use in your engagement jewelry by creating a custom piece using an extremely rare (and extremely pricey!) red gem called a “padparadscha sapphire.” If you’re able to get your hands on one of those, you may as well throw out the “something blue” tradition altogether and go for “something coral” instead!

Forget all of your 2018 troubles – they’re now a thing of the past. We’re starting fresh and clean with a vibrant, exciting new color scheme to keep us happy and energized all year long. This year we will be living big, living bold, and Living Coral!

Boho Bridal Brunch Shoot

Between picking out the perfect dress, tasting dozens of cake samples, scouting your ideal venue and creating a dreamy tablescape, we often forget about those who are by our side every step of the way.

What better way to show appreciation to the girls standing by your side than by throwing them a thank you brunch? It’s the perfect time to gather all your girls together and just forget the wedding stress for a bit. And who doesn’t love to celebrate with a mimosa…. or two?!

We teamed up with some of our favorite vendors to put on an amazing Boho style bridal brunch shoot in D’Vine Cuisine‘s event space in Downtown Bryan. This gem is perfect for hosting small gatherings like bridal showers, baby showers, birthday parties and more! All these fun pictures are taken by the talented All Heart Photography.
