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.

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!

Good Luck Sarah!

Posted 6/6/2016 by Mariannes Rentals

It's pageant week! Over the past 5 years, Marianne's Rentals for Special Events has been proud to work closely with the Miss Oklahoma Pageant system for The Linen Runway Show to raise money for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. In that time,  we've met many special girls and developed some particularly close relationships.  We're watching and rooting for our friends! 

Last year, the top three finalists came into our showroom to celebrate the spirit of teamwork and comraderie within the lovely girls representing our great state. Miss Oklahoma 2015, Georgia Frasier, was stunning in our Black Dazzle Sequin linens.  She was surrounded by Sarah Klein, Ashten Vincent and Ali Brooks.  Click on their names to vote for these amazing girls as fan favorites in this years contest! Each vote costs just $1; voting closes June 9th at 9pm.  Be sure to tune in to the Miss Oklahoma Pageant on June 11th, 2016 at 7:30 to cheer for your favorite!

While many of these girls have worn our linens over the years, we've developed a special relationship with the reigning Miss Tulsa, Sarah Klein. She's sweet and caring, as beautiful on the inside and out. We've been proud to have her wearing our linens many times before the camera and last year, she was featured in our special event advertising campaign.

Thank you, Sarah, for everything you've done for Marianne's Rentals! We're rooting for you!

We Heart Draping: February Anniversary Promotion

Posted 2/1/2016 by Mariannes Rentals

Marianne's continues our 30th Anniversary celebration by thanking our customers with another great promotion in February. This month only, when you rent any size pipe kit, get premium draping upgrades at 50% off! We have glitter, velvet, chiffon, sequins, taffeta and more in a variety of colors.

Renting a Pipe & Drape setup may not sound very fancy, but it's your go-to product for room transformations. Whether you need to hide an ugly wall or create a dramatic backdrop, the options are endless! Although Pipe & Drape is very practical, when you put a pretty panel on it, things really start to happen. Marianne's is proud to offer our customers the most extensive inventory of premium panels in the state. We can set up 10' behind your cake table for a picture perfect backdrop, create partitions, or completely cover an entire room from floor to ceiling. 

Pipe & Drape is easy to set up yourself for the DIY event, but when you secure our delivery services, we'll set it up too!  Make an appointment to stop by the showroom and see some examples of the many options available.  But hurry, this offer is available on in stock panels upgrades only and will end February 29th!

 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.
