We’ve talked about the Fill 'N Chill Party Table before, but we haven’t mentioned its perfect accessory item. We all know that the table is perfect for all sorts of parties, especially in the summer when it is hot! The Fill ‘N Chill Party Table is fantastic for keeping those drinks and snacks cold all day while you’re entertaining the guests!
This time last year, the term “social distancing” wasn’t a part of our everyday language. These days it is uncommon if the term isn’t a part of a conversation, particularly if you are in the restaurant, event or any type of business that deals with the public. On a positive note, social distancing means that gatherings and events are returning, which also means businesses are finally allowed to open back up. The new requirements set forth for safety have significantly changed the landscape of the hospitality industry to accommodate the standard of six feet of distance between people at all times. This has required venues to get creative and rethink their spaces from set-up to capacity to foot traffic paths. What can a venue do to accommodate the new requirements without moving to a much larger building requiring much higher overhead?
‘Tis the season for weddings! It’s June, the weather is good, and all those happy couples are ready to tie the knot. It really is no secret that June is the most popular month of the year to host a wedding! Anyways, with all these weddings coming up, there’s a lot to consider with your decorations. The reception’s decoration is just as important as the ceremony, and honestly, it might be a little bit harder to figure out what you want to do for the reception.
Offering a wide variety of tables and chairs for customers to choose from is important for both rental businesses and event venues. Tables and chairs play a key role in setting the desired tone for an event. From cocktail tables to round tables to rectangular tables, how is one to choose which table is best?
I’ll tell you what the saddest part of last year was for me - the lack of dancing because there were no parties or events to go to! Truly a devastating thing for someone who was a trained ballet dancer for 13 years. Now, I definitely don’t look forward to parties so I can bust out the ballet moves, but I do like to let loose every now and then, and I think the dancing is just in my blood!
Chiavari chairs have a way of offering a touch of class and elegance to any event with their signature bamboo-like joints. This iconic look has become synonymous with elegance, class and sophistication. In addition to its difficult spelling, it is difficult to pronounce. The correct pronunciation is “ke-a-va’re.” Whether you are a rental company or a site venue, giving your clients an additional elegant seating option like chiavari chairs. Your clients will not only be pleased with the option, but rental companies can often get a faster return on their investment with this chair because most brides and event coordinators are willing to pay the additional fee for this chair option. Event venues are able to add value to their facilities by offering this attractive chair that is included with the site fee.
If you’ve planned any sort of wedding, public event, or prom, you know how awful it is to try and haul tables back and forth from storage to event space then back to storage. Tables are kind of heavy and really awkward to carry long distances. It really doesn’t matter how strong you are, people still have issues with them! It is a hassle and can make your party set-up and tear-down take way too long. There is no need for that with EVENTrux Table Trucks.
I was reading Venue Professional Magazine the other day and came across an article entitled “What’s Changed Forever?” talking about facility/venue management in a post-COVID world. The article focused on the event industry taking a step back and looking at the shifts of the industry and how it should adapt to the “new normal.” It focused on several areas such as living with change and uncertainty. Admittedly, when I first started reading the article, I was a bit offended that it compared what is going on today to 9/11. In my opinion, these two events are not related. However, the further I read, the more I realized their comparisons are quite similar. For instance, the section heading called, Cleaning Takes Center Stage, talks about how post-9/11, many safety changes had to take place to avoid another similar tragedy. The author makes a valid point, that he is no longer surprised when he goes to a meeting at an office building and he is asked to show his ID, have his picture taken, and wear a badge. He compares the post-9/11 security processes to today’s critically important cleaning and janitorial operations. Additional cleaning and disinfecting are expected from clients. How do you plan to accomplish this and assure that your clients feel safe to patronize your facility?
There is nothing I like more than going to an event that has food and drinks and a place I can easily put them without feeling like I am leaving the party’s vibe. That’s why I like pedestal tables that can be set up without chairs and slightly off to the side where the main event takes place, but close enough to still feel the energy in the space!
The recent pandemic event has caused us to rethink and re-acclimate how we do a lot of things in our lives and businesses. The event business and any business that relies on large gatherings as their main source of income have all suffered tremendously and many continue to do so. However, some have found various ways to reinvent themselves and adapt to what the current market is demanding. The current market is demanding some sort of normalcy, even if it is just a small sliver of the old normal. One thing is for certain, life goes on.
If you’ve ever hosted any kind of party or get-together, you know that drinks and food are some of the most important components. Everyone loves a nice cold drink during a party or get-together to really set the mood. Especially with the temperatures increasing and the sun is shining, it is time for the ice chests to come out at every function. However, sometimes the ice chest is a hassle, and it is difficult to display every drink you’ve got to offer. Not to mention, rifling through the ice chest can be time-consuming and inefficient. That’s why the Fill 'N Chill Party Table is the perfect solution!
If there is a silver lining in this COVID-19 pandemic, it has to be the resilience of restaurant owners, managers, and staff to acclimate to the new ways of doing business. Restaurants have modified menus and employee roles to offer curbside pick-up, added extended patios to offer more seating for outdoor dining options and anything else to keep the doors open and staff employed. Times are tough, but the unbreakable spirit of restaurateurs is quite remarkable and something we should all strive to be.
