We’re starting to receive quotes from caterers, which includes items I didn’t even know I needed. Like tablecloths and napkins and extra furniture for gifts and cards and high top tables for cocktail hour and…. the list goes on and on.
What I have learned is that it is generally cheaper to rent these things then to buy them. For example, I can rent a fork for 50 cents. Can I buy a fork for 50 cents? Nope. I can’t. It’s just not possible. A plate? Cheaper to rent. Linens? Oh they are SO expensive to rent. But even more expensive to buy.
Until I found http://www.linentablecloth.com/
This is my new mecca. Guess what I did? I managed to put together a package of all the linens I needed for under $300. Guess how much it is to rent? $600 plus. Also, renting means I can choose from a select number of colors. Now I can incorporate all my wedding colors, which makes my table design from drab to fab.
Take that party rental centers!!!
