Spring 2017 Inspiration Editorial: Gibson Events

Posted 2/3/2017 by Mariannes Rentals

So dreamy, this has got to be one of our favorite editorial images.  Lindsay of Gibson Events found the most perfect backdrop in Oklahoma to work her magic and had some great partners to help her pull it off! The beautiful images are by Josh McCullock Photography. If you stick with us till the end, you can watch the pros set and style the scene in the behind the scenes video by Pen Weddings.

 

We just can't gush enough about the beautiful look Lindsay put together. True, she had a little help from her friends at Poppy Lane Design with these fabulous florals. Oh, and all those pretties! We've got to brag on a few. Our blue and white Savannah Dessert plate is so new, it's not online yet! Also featured are the Pure Glassware Collection and our Silverplate Flatware, that's right there's nothing like the polish of real silver!

 

In their ceremony setup, Lindsay clustered our grey stone candle holders, tieing in their use on the tablescape. Their earthy color and textured patina were just right for the day. 

Here's that video we promised! We're proud to report that this editorial shoot was featured in the Brides of Oklahoma 10th Anniversary we issue. Stop by the showroom anytime in 2017 for a complimentary copy.

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!

The Importance of China

Posted 6/3/2014 by Mariannes Rentals

…We’re not just talking about the country.

China. You need it at your next event. Marianne’s can provide you with tons of different options and styles for the next soiree you throw. Here are the top 5 reasons why you need to rent china and table settings for your wedding, birthday party or dinner party. 

 

1. It’s hassle free – and looks good.

The stylists at Marianne’s will work with you to find the perfect table setting for your event. There are tons of options to choose from, and let’s face it – two heads are better than one. When you visit our awesome showroom, we’ll make sure you have the perfect tools to throw a party that won’t be forgotten anytime soon.

2. You don’t have to wash them. 

You know that feeling- after a great party, there’s always a mess in the kitchen. When you rent china, all you do is rinse them off and throw the dishes back in the box (okay, don’t throw, but place carefully) and bring them back to our warehouse. You can also arrange for delivery and pick up. How easy is that? 

 

3. It’s classy.

Our philosophy is, if you’re going to do something, do it all the way. We want you to have the most successful event you can, and also showcase your personality in the details. Plus, the pictures afterward will look AWESOME.

4. It’s cost effective.

When you think of fine china, most think of a stuffy dinner party, but we’re here to tell you that you can also make it work at a breezy summer dinner outside or a special Bunko night. Also, we have price points for fine china for every budget. Most of our plates start at .50 cents a plate. How can you beat that?

5. It’s good for the environment.

Think about all the paper plates that are just thrown away after events and cookouts. When you rent place settings, it’s better for the environment. That means you can now go a little bit crazier with the hairspray. Go on! We won’t judge.
