The Benefits of Holiday Party Rentals

Renting holiday party equipment, accessories, and tabletop items from a professional event company has several benefits.

By renting items, you don’t have to worry about buying seasonal items, cleaning them after the event, and finding storage for them during the off-season. Instead, you can rent essentials at a fraction of the cost of buying them outright, leaving you with additional funds in your party budget to spend on big ticket items like food and entertainment.

Additionally, you don’t have to worry about storing, repairing, cleaning, or maintaining rentals. They will always be in working order, and when you shop at a premier event company, you have a wide range of options.

If you want to avoid the stress and hassle of purchasing items for your holiday or Christmas party while also putting on an unforgettable event, consider renting party equipment.

7 Holiday & Christmas Party Rental Ideas

The holiday party rentals you will need for your celebration depend on the specifics of your venue, theme, and agenda, but this list is a great place to start. Use these items to plan an event that will fit your seasonal vision.

1. Lighting

Lighting is essential, especially in the dreary winter months. String lights create a soft, festive glow that is perfect for a Christmas or holiday party. Accent lighting adds softness and creates an intriguing display, especially if a special jolly guest is at your event. Set the mood with the right holiday lighting.

2. Portable Bar

A portable bar is the perfect way to serve drinks to your guests. Whether you’re serving sodas, beer, wine, or cocktails, you can decorate the bar to suit the occasion and ensure nobody’s glass goes empty. And these bars are ideal for any venue—you can set them up almost anywhere and move them as needed.

Hire or designate a bartender to man the bar and get the party going.

3. Furniture

Create a comfortable atmosphere with the right furniture. The right tables, chairs, and seating will ensure guests can relax, converse, and mingle while enjoying their food and drinks. Consider renting a few different sizes and arrangements of tables and chairs so that small and large groups can sit together.

4. Linens

Once you have selected your tables, the next step is to rent some gorgeous linens. Tablecloths, table runners, napkins, seat covers —the options are endless. You can stick with holiday greens and reds to create a festive atmosphere, go with gold or silver for a more elegant look, or choose custom colors and styles.

5. Tabletop

It’s the little things that make all the difference. Build a gorgeous winter tablescape with chargers, flatware, china, and glassware that match your party theme and dazzle guests. Combined with your furniture, chairs, and linens, attendees will be thrilled with your tablescape.

6. Outdoor Heaters

If your holiday party is outdoors during the colder months, rent an outdoor heater to keep guests warm. Another option is to set up a campfire where guests can spend time warming up by the open flames.

7. Tents

There’s no need to stay indoors, even during a holiday party. By installing a heated tent or canopy where guests can relax, eat, or dance the night away, they can enjoy the winter wonderland without feeling the chill. Choose from among the different types of tents to find the one that fits your holiday party vision.
