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

 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.

Merry Christmas from Marianne's!

Posted 12/12/2014 by Mariannes Rentals

Christmas is one of our favorite times of the year at Mariannes Rentals for Special Events!  Every year, we celebrate with a much anticipated party where the employees from every department come together to celebrate the benefits of the hard work and dedication of our teammates. Last night, we laughed and cheered for each other at Kyle's 1025 Restaurant and had the best time.  If you haven't been, we highly recommend the fried chicken and salted caramel cheesecake - among many other things!

Last year our friends from Von Wedding Films came to capture all the pretties so we could share this holiday inspiration with you!  We celebrated at the beautiful Red Barn on Waldo's Pond and loved every minute! 

 


Color Inspiration: Red

Posted 12/9/2014 by Mariannes Rentals

Ask anyone what color comes to mind to represent the holidays and red is the word on their lips. Also the color of joy, passion, vibrance and love, we think the color of the season is the perfect inspiration for weddings and special events of all kinds!

'Tis the Season for Holiday Parties!

Posted 12/8/2014 by Mariannes Rentals

Whether it’s your first time to throw a holiday party or you already have a reputation for the best bash of the season, bringing friends and family together for a Christmas party can be as much fun to plan and host as it is to attend! We love this beautiful holiday party image by Camden of Emerson Events featuring our rental items. 

Here are our favorite tips for planning your holiday dinner or party this season.

1. Make sure you enjoy it!

Make a list of the most important parts of planning your party.  Is there something on there that makes you cringe? Ask for help! Whether it’s searching for some great tips on the internet, reaching out to a friend with special skills or hiring a professional, getting over those hurdles early in the process will help you focus on the part you enjoy the most will keep you focused, energize your creativity and keep your planning stress free.  Our friendly staff can refer you to all kinds of experts from invitation designers to catering gurus.

2. Make sure your guests will enjoy it!

There is a difference between accommodating guests and hosting them! Put yourselves in their shoes and do everything you can to make them feel comfortable.  Need an extra coat rack? We rent those! Need to add a statement piece? How about an ice sculpture from our friends at Ideas in Ice? Is there a need for a little entertainment? EZ Fun Co has great party games that are easy to purchase or rent!  Your guests will appreciate the extra effort you put into the details that make the event special. 

3. Maximize your resources

Let Marianne’s Rentals for Special Events help you put together all the pretty and practical items you need to throw the best party.  We can help you identify your needs to avoid last minute rushes and unexpected expenses.  Whether you need a few extra chairs, racks of wine glasses or even a heated tent for overflow festivities, our resources are available to you!  Our friendly sales staff can make expert recommendations to help you get the most out of your space and planning time as well.

4. Make great memories

A welcoming atmosphere, entertaining details and great company are great recipes for a memorable event.  Don’t forget to plan to capture those memories as they are made.  Assign a guest the role of event photographer or consider hiring a professional.  Photobooths are an entertaining addition for holiday parties that also can capture your memories!  Consider making cute signage to scatter around your entertaining area with a special party hashtag so that your guests can add their own images to your party collection!
