Frequently Asked Questions

Our first recommendation would be to take a look at the catalog to see an overview of the items we have available, and then submit an inquiry with your event details and a description of what collections you are interested in.

Since by this point you’ve certainly emailed us details about your event, and decided on what collections you would like to rent, simply give us the word and (availability permitting) we’ll put together a proposal for you. We require a 50% deposit of your order total upon booking, which means you’ve officially got dibs on your desired quantity/type of items for your event date. Yay!

Yep, it sure is.

Absolutely! We just ask that you (or your caterer) take note of what belongs where so that everything makes it back to it’s proper home, which will help you avoid incurring some hefty replacement fees.

With pleasure. If you are interested in items you do not already see in our collections, just shoot us a note to let us know more about what it is you’re looking for and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
