we were there: AOPA Fly-In

Posted 9/15/2017 by Mariannes Rentals

Wow! These are great people! We were so pleased to be the rental vendor of choice for this years' regional fly-in for the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) at the Max Westheimer Airport in Norman, Oklahoma. It was a big undertaking that we're proud of. And, we made some great new friends!

It started early in the morning with a massive, multi-day load in. 

When it was finished, the event had record-breaking attendance with over 7,500 people! More than 500 planes flew in from all over the country for the event.

The highlight of Friday evening was the Barnstormer's Party, and we were honored to provide tables, chairs, linens and lights!

 Overall, it was a perfect start to the fall festival season! We hope to see you at one in September too!

Dinner on the OKC Ferris Wheel

Posted 10/4/2016 by Mariannes Rentals

What a fun event to be a part of! For two nights, guests were treated to a four course dinner courtesy of Ludevine, one for each rotation! The event was called Le Restaurant Francais of the 1939 World Fair and was held on the former Santa Monica Pier Ferris Wheel, now located in Oklahoma City!

Our partner, Kindt Events, coordinated great rentals to compliment the theme. We were so pleased to see this great coverage in The Oklahoman's Sunday edition! Rental items featured include our Black and White Dance Floor and our Vintage Furniture Collection!

Wedding Redo Styled Shoot: Layla & Bobby

Posted 9/29/2016 by Mariannes Rentals

It's not every day you get to be a part of a styled shoot with so much heart! We were thrilled when Sue & Lou Events asked us to partner with them and Tara Lokey Photography to provide our pretties for Layla & Bobby's styled shoot. Layla & Bobby of Chickasa are the winners of Tara's Wedding Redo Styled Shoot contest. She graciously gave away her services to this lovely couple to redo their wedding portraits. 

Featured Items: Creation Blush Linen over Charcoal Polyester | Diana Settee | Mercury Glass Mirror | Pure Champagne Coupe | Mercury Glass Tray

Here is a bit of what Layla wrote in her contest entry: (you can read and see more on Tara's blog)

"I have too many blessings to complain about a bad picture: a mom who battled cancer and kicked its butt, a dad who has told me that I’m special every day of my life, a husband who has loved me so fiercely that I realized I was worth loving, a sister who has always believed in me and encouraged me to step out of my comfort zone, a God who never gives up on me, and a son who is more beautiful (inside and out) than I ever imagined possible.  My smile now reflects all of those things that I just couldn’t see about myself before."

Since her wedding, Layla lost over 160 lbs and her hard work, combined with her sweet attitude proves she was more than deserving of this experience. And boy did she shine!

Many other talented vendors came together to make this happen for Layla & Bobby. We're proud to have worked with so many giving and generous professionals on this project!

Corporate Event: Sealed Air Anniversary

Posted 9/26/2016 by Mariannes Rentals

We're proud to show off this corporate event by Meredith of Significant Events of Texas. We set up a 18x45 Meter Losberger Tent in Iowa Park, Texas along with a stage for their presentations, tables and chairs for 700 people! The Sealed Air plant of Iowa Park, one of the world's largest packing companies, celebrated their 40th anniversary in style with Meredith's help. She did a great job and it was a pleasure for Marianne's Rentals to be in Texas again!

After the event, the client sent us a great review! We were pleased to see she said,

"Fantastic experience working with you guys. You were so professional and the installation and products were top notch! Wish you were in Dallas! I hope we have a chance to work together again!"  

We hope so too Meredith and we have no objection at all to delivering in Dallas!

Photos are all by Images by Darah, who did a really fabulous job capturing our tent and the scale of the event. Thanks Darah!

Featured Event: Winter Wonderland at Red Rock Grill

Posted 12/30/2014 by Mariannes Rentals

We had the best time seeing this white winter wonderland come together! We set up a 40'x80' Kedered Tent and connected it to Red Rock Grill with tent sidewalls along their existing structure! It was so cool! Thanks to Colorband Photoartisans for all the pre-event photos.  

The fully draped tent was accented with our 7 Tiered Chandeliers and the white dance floor was surrounded by our Flocked Trees and guests ready to get off thier feet had our tufted banquets available to lounge on. Here are some of our favorite images from this magical event.  We hope the guests were as pleased as we were!  

The additional lighting is by our friends at Innovative Event Solutions, including the snowflakes seen on our white dance floor. The ice sculpture in the photo (one of 3!) was by Ideas in Ice.  Lovely flowers and dripping crystals all over were by the experts at The Fleuriste!

The Linen Runway Show

BUY YOUR TICKETS HERE!

PRESENTING SPONSORS

Marianne's Rentals for Special Events, Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club, Innovative Event Solutions,

TRAINA PhotographyVon Wedding Films


 The Linen Runway Show began in 2010 as entertainment for the 25th Anniversary celebration of Marianne’s Rentals for Special Events. With friends and customers as models on a runway in one of the company’s eight warehouses, what started as an offhanded comment became the talk of the town and begged to be repeated! While the event has always supported a local charity, in 2013, the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals became the official charity of the event. In 2014, the Miss Oklahoma Scholarship Pageant was added as an advocate and co-beneficiary of the event.  Patients of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and their siblings walk the runway with Miss Oklahoma Contestants in a Miracle parade with guests giving a standing ovation. 

 
 
 
Using fashion as inspiration, the show gowns are created out of only tablecloths, runners, and chair ties that are tucked, tied, taped and pinned.  One runway model is crowned Miss Oklahoma Tabletop! In 2014, The Linen Runway Show boasted more than 300 guests and $12,000 raised for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and the Miss Oklahoma Scholarship pageant from ticket sales, raffle items and donations. The 2015 show will celebrate its 5th Anniversary at the Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club.

Linens so fabulous, you'll want to wear them!

Posted 6/3/2014 by Mariannes Rentals

 

April 15th was the annual Linen Runway Show. We at Marianne’s Rentals look forward to this event every year. This year was extra special because we got to help produce this meaningful and fun video, You’re Worth More Than Gold. 

 

 

But the main event, the runway show, is what we love the most.

Two hours, over twelve thousand dollars raised, three hundred guests, twenty-two miracle kids and siblings, twenty-two Miss Oklahoma contestants and one night to remember. The 2014 Linen Runway show benefits Children’s Miracle Hospitals and the Miss Oklahoma Scholarship Pageant. We’re so happy and proud to announce that over twelve thousand dollars was raised to benefit both of our deserving causes.

If you didn’t attend this year, you might be wondering why we call it the Linen Runway Show. It’s because at Marianne’s Rentals, we have linens so fabulous, you’ll want to wear them! And we’re being totally serious. Some our favorite tablecloths make amazing dresses. We dressed Miss Oklahoma Scholarship contestants to the nines – in tablecloths! Here are some of our favorite looks: (and you’re going to have to join us for next year's show!)

  

I know the answer to your question – yes you can rent these tablecloths for your own fabulous wedding or event! To do so, just click here. We have over 25,000 tablecloths and linens available for rental.
This event took a village to put on. We couldn’t have done it without our amazing sponsors.

Worth More Than Gold

Posted 5/4/2014 by Mariannes Rentals
Marianne’s Rentals is not just another rental company. Giving back the community is one of best parts of our job. For the fourth year, we hosted the 2014 Linen Runway Show. The proceeds of the tickets benefit the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is Hospitals helping local kids. They Children’s Miracle Network strives to keep donation proceeds in the Oklahoma community so children will have access to exceptional pediatric specialists without having to leave the state.

The Linen Runway Show, which will celebrate its’ 5th anniversary next year at the Oklahoma City Golf and Country Club also benefits Miss Oklahoma Scholarship Pageant which awards more than 2,000,000 in scholarship money each year, but is also part of the Miss America Pageant System, which is one of the nation’s leading achievement programs and the world’s largest provider of scholarship assistance for young women.

Prepping for the event this year was extra special because we got to produce a video featuring Children’s Miracle Network kids and members of the Miss Oklahoma Scholarship organization. Take a look at the video below!

 

 

Marianne's Rentals was proud to produce this project and provide the event rentals, but we couldn’t make this awesome video alone. Tons of members of the community donated their time and effort. From the cake by Mishelle Handy Cakes, to the video production by Von Wedding Films, we can’t thank our contributing vendors enough!

Filmed at the Children’s Hospital at the OU Medical Center and sponsored by Riverwind Casino, this was a production for the books. Some of the other vendors include Choreography by Taylor Treat, who was Miss Oklahoma 2009, Event Styling by Oklahoma City Perfect Wedding Guide, the fun event games generously donated by EZ Fun Company, lighting by Innovative Event Solutions, the beautiful flowers by The Fleuriste and coordination of all the lovely pageant contestants was courtesy of About Last Night Event Planning.

This video was such a labor of love for us and such a fun day of filming. The Children’s Miracle Network kids were the stars of the show!  We hope you enjoy it! Make sure to leave comment below if you liked it!
