Director of Sales Achieves Elite Industry Certification

Graduating from the Certified Event Rental Professional (CERP) program, developed by the American Rental Association (ARA), is one of the party and event rental industry’s most esteemed accomplishments. For Christina Daigle, CERP, Director of Sales with Liberty Party Rental, achieving this distinguished certification became a reality on Nov 13, 2017.

CERP graduates have studied rigorous course material and passed examinations for three rental-specific disciplines, validated their commitment in the industry with professional and personal activities, and written an essay composition. The CERP program builds a strong knowledge base of the party and event equipment rental industry that cannot be achieved elsewhere. “Becoming CERP certified demonstrates the commitment these individuals have to the rental industry and to their customers,” said Vinny Mago, ARA director of education and training. “They have taken the time to learn industry best practices and become experts in their chosen field. This is a tremendous service rental professionals can offer consumers who are looking for expert advice when planning their special event.”

Palm Beach Chic Bridal Shower

When we heard one of our very own account managers, Emily Maksimowicz, was going to throw a bridal shower for her sister, we knew her design would not disappoint! Boy, were we right! Below, she tells us all about her inspiration behind this chic beachy theme.

“Being a Maid of Honor can be a daunting task, so when my sister got engaged earlier this year, I went into full planning mode. For her bridal shower, I knew I wanted to incorporate tropical elements since her and her fiancé recently moved to Florida. I decided that the theme would be ‘Palm Beach Chic’ filled with gold flamingos, palm leaves, and lots of stripes.

I love mixing and matching patterns and textures and thought that Liberty Party Rental’s bamboo folding chairs paired perfectly with striped linens alongside palm leaves tucked inside a pink balloon garland. And what tropical party is complete without a monogrammed bar stocked with frozen strawberry margaritas and citrus infused water?

There was a lot of DIY-ing involved filled with gold spray paint and balloon tying, but seeing my vision come to life and my sister’s face when she walked through the door made it all worth it.”

Nashville Rehearsal Dinner With A Georgia Twist

When Madeline and Gardner Heaner were planning their rehearsal dinner and post-toast party to compliment their stunning wedding, they knew Acme Feed & Seed in downtown Nashville would be the perfect place. The Groom’s mother granted their wedding planner, Big Events Wedding, complete creative control to plan these events with only one stipulation: Give homage to their Georgia home and nearby hunting camp where the couple had shared so many wonderful memories.

The event got a taste of home with Georgia peaches in the salad and authentic southern brisket for an entrée. Deer antlers adorned the bar and gnarly wood tablescapes added a hunting-camp-chic flair. With beautiful Fruitwood Farm tables, Tuscan Bentwood chairs, and Silver Beaded Rim Glass chargers from Liberty Party Rental, linens by BBJ Linen, draping by Visual Elements and lighting by Bright Events, Acme Feed and Seed was transformed for the Heaner Rehearsal Dinner. Lastly, the elegant and understated floral arrangements were neutral with pops of peach–again, a nod to the couple’s Georgia roots.

The first night of their memorable wedding weekend was a perfect jumpstart to Madeline and Gardner’s life together. We are so thankful these two allowed us to help make their Georgia vision come true in the heart of downtown Nashville!

3 Tips For Planning a Rehearsal Dinner – from Molly Sohr of Big Events Wedding

  1. Try to choose a design and color scheme that doesn’t take away or clash with the BIG night the next day.
  1. Always keep the bride and groom’s personality in mind and create personal touches!
  1. Choose a menu that is not repetitive of – or too similar to – the wedding meal. Mix up your cuisine for your guests enjoying both evenings with you.

Fall Cocktail Recipe ft. Red Spirits & Wine and Frozen Exposure Photography

Bourbon Maple Apple Cider

We teamed up with our friends (and neighbors) Frozen Exposure along with local spirits shop Red Spirits & Wine to create a fall cocktail! Red provided all of the spirits and garnishes we needed to create a fall-tastic drink – Bourbon Maple Apple Cider. Each bottle of alcohol used can be found at their local shop in Belle Meade. The bourbon has been aged and actually stirred by the rocking on an east coast ship in the ocean! We thought that was the coolest story and we feel honored to even have such a bourbon grace our Bodega glassware!  Plus, Red Spirits & Wine delivers! So if you’re planning your wedding or even your holiday party, remember Red can bring the booze straight to your event! Take a look at the photos Frozen Exposure captured of our recipe below and keep scrolling to find out how you can make this drink at home!

DIY Gold Geometric Hanging Planters

DIY Gold Geometric Hanging Planters

If you saw our post on Navy and Coral Wedding Inspiration, then you may have noticed our gold geometric hanging planters in the window. Did you know they’re made out of strays? Yep, we DIYed those! Here’s the how-to:

DIY Hanging Geometric Planter

Materials:

Faux Airplants

Scissors

Straws (Gold or whatever pattern you’d like)

String or Twine

Spray Paint (optional)

Materials for DIY Hanging Geometric Planter

1) Cut straws to desired sizes – I cut one in half to make the top triangle portion and used two full-size straws for the bottom. String them in order on your twine and tie a tight knot at the top.

  Geometric Planter DIY

2) String another diamond exactly like the first one onto your twine and leave string at the top. Tie the two diamonds together to make a 3D shape.

  How to Make a Geometric Hanging Planter

3) Cut smaller pieces and secure the mid-section. Tie double knots at each point before adding the next straw onto the string.

 Instructions on how to make a geometric planter

4) Cut the loose strings on the ends except for the top hanging strings. Spray paint your desired color if you choose – be sure to cover every angle. 🙂
