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.
If you have any questions about the 2014 Linen Runway show, don’t hesitate to ask! If you want to be involved in next year’s event, be sure to let us know.
When planning a wedding, attention is in every detail. When you’re thinking about the food, the DJ, the booze – who has time to think about chair décor? This is why it’s one of the most overlooked parts of the wedding. But the way you dress up your seating can make a huge difference on your big day. Here are 5 ways to dress up even the plainest chair for your wedding so you and the guests can make it an event to remember.
1. Sashes and such
Chair ties are a great way to incorporate your wedding colors into the smallest of details. There are tons of different variations of bows and brooches, so you can dress your chairs up or go for a more subtle elegance.
2. Burlap fabric and rosettes
For the couples that want a more vintage and earthly feel, burlap is a great alternative to satin or even organza. Paired with a blush rosette, these chairs are sure to add that certain “wow” factor to a down-home country wedding. It goes great with that reclaimed wood in your barn wedding!
3. To the left, to the left (or right!)
When thinking about aisle decorations, think no further than chair ties. Since they’re so versatile, you can pull them to the side and all of the guest’s vision will be pulled towards the most important part of the wedding – the wedding party and (we all know it’s true) the bride!
If you’re not willing to decorate every single chair, just think about the back row – it’s just as effective.
4. Throw a broach on that bow!
What is more elegant than a perfectly tied bow? When added to a garden chair, the whole look of the wedding seating changes. You can leave it plain, or add a sparkling brooch to take the wedding look to another level. It’s all up to you!
5. Fresh flowers and organza
This one is our favorite! Adding different textures and fabrics can really make a difference in the way your seating looks. Fresh flowers and organza transform the wedding space into a whimsical setting- the perfect place to get married. Think about adding in flowers – it makes a difference.
…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.
