The Other Side of the Veil: Behind the Scenes with Liberty Party Rental

This week I have the chance to share the incredibly talented Liberty Party Rental with everyone and I’m not gonna lie, I’m pretty excited! McKenzie Portelance, Liberty’s Director of Business Development, was kind enough to answer our questions and let me just say, if you’re planning an event listen to her advice! She has great insight on what’s popular, how you can save money and what her favorite rentals are. Oh and the pictures are unreal…seriously gorgeous! Enjoy!

What’s one thing people often overlook when deciding on what to rent for an event/wedding?

I would have to say that all too often clients hosting an event at a venue where ballroom chairs are included want to change the look of the chairs by using chair covers and ties. While most people think this is their only option, it is actually less costly and far less time consuming to rent a different chair all together. Another trick is to only add a chair tie. You can add a chair tie to pretty much any chair if you want to dress it up or just add a pop of color.

What do you rent out most often?

That is a hard question to answer since it really depends on the type of client or event. Our most popular items would probably be tables and chairs simply because we have the largest inventory in the Nashville area and a wide variety of choices.

What rentals are particularly popular for weddings & events this year?

We have recently added a wrought iron arch, spiral candelabra set, and unity candle to our inventory which is always a big hit with the bridal market. The chiavari chairs and Axis modular couches seem to be making a big comeback this year as well for fundraisers and corporate events.

What new products do you have that are unique to Liberty Party Rental?

Our most recent additions have been a new line of stemware called “Classico” which has a classic and elegant look and our black and white “Chateau” linen which works perfectly for so many different types of events and looks amazing with just about any accent color.

What is your favorite item in your warehouse?

Our banquettes are definitely one of my favorite rental items. They are high back, upholstered benches that can be covered in any fabric and are completely unique to the Nashville area market.

Sign. Me. Up. I love how these pictures showcase Liberty’s wide range of pieces and the different looks are a testament to their amazing ability to pair the perfect rentals with the vibe a client’s looking to create. From an upscale glam affair indoors to an elegant reception under a tent, they’ve got everything needed to help put together a truly memorable party! Thanks to McKenzie for giving us such great tips and information! We are thrilled to have Liberty Party Rental on our blog!
