Outdoor parties are the perfect way to celebrate any occasion, from birthdays and weddings to corporate events and backyard gatherings. To make your event truly special, consider renting unique outdoor party decor and props that will create a memorable experience for your guests. Take a look at some of our unique inventory items, perfect for creating fun focal points, stylish backdrops, food and drink displays, or social areas, that are sure to impress.
Photo-Worthy Outdoor Party Decor & Backdrops
Every event needs a photo backdrop! A place where guests can snap a photo as a keepsake or to share on social media. Our Boxwood Wall is a beautiful and versatile piece of decor. It can be used to create a backdrop for luxurious photographs, dressed up with drapery, balloons, or fresh flowers. Or you can create an interactive focal point, such as a champagne wall! These same walls can also be used to create a stylish seating chart or welcome sign.
Alternatively, check out our beautiful Fiona Ivory Mantle. Whether it is placed against a wall or standalone, it can also be used as a backdrop or fun focal point. Adorn the mantle with flowers and the base with lanterns, and it is perfect as a backdrop for opening presents at a birthday or baby shower. An equally stunning option is our Wrought Iron Arch. It would look stunning for a garden party, whether you choose to feature it as an entryway to hang a banner. For a more elegant look, weave our Chiffon Runner or fresh flowers through the metal lattice!
Outdoor Drink & Food Displays
One of our favorite ways to make a statement at any event is with a stylish drink or food display. It’s a simple but effective way to elevate a buffet area or to serve up favors to guests! The most popular piece in our inventory of outdoor party decor is our whiskey barrels, with an acrylic or barn wood top. It’s the perfect makeshift bar or grazing table! But you can also use it in tandem with a variety of our cake stands to create a multi-level display of appetizers or desserts. Or create a stylish buffet when you mix and match our beverage dispensers and chafing dishes.
A close second to any of our whiskey barrel bars is our Market Cart. Simple and bright white, it is a chic piece ideal for baby and bridal showers! Use this piece as a welcome area for a ticketed event, as a designated space for presents, or to place favors for guests to grab as they are exiting. If you would prefer a prop with space for custom signage, for a birthday party or themed event, opt for a Ticket Booth.
If you’re hosting a wedding, anniversary, or corporate event, champagne is a must! Toast to another year, or a year of big achievements, with a trendy champagne tower. You can create a beautiful tablescape with any of our linens and a tower created using our Gatsby Champagne Coupes. Or, if you aren’t a fan of a glass tower, feature our White 6-Tier Serving Tower. Sleek and modern, it will make hosting a toast a breeze!
Trendy Outdoor Lounge Areas
Want a focal point for your event that is not just aesthetic? You need a lounge area – maybe two! We stock a large variety of trendy sofas, armchairs, accent tables, and rugs to create a lounge area that is as beautiful as it is comfortable. Start with any of our sofas, like our classic Bennett Leather or the retro-inspired Fern Velvet. Armchairs will increase the amount of seating available, as will any of our poufs or ottomans. If your lounge is being used during a cocktail hour with drinks or light bites, be sure to grab a set of accent tables. And, finally, don’t overlook a rug; whether you prefer cowhide or vintage. It will beautifully frame the space, whereas without one it can leave your lounge feeling incomplete.

Plus, be sure to check out our new tent packages, curated to include everything you need for a stylish outdoor celebration; because planning an outdoor party doesn’t have to be a hassle!

Keep reading to learn about our small business grand opening rentals that can be used to put together a memorable event!
Grand Opening Cocktail Bar
Nowadays a bar, big or small, is a must-have at a grand opening. You don’t need anything fancy (unless that’s what you want), just a bar and a simple menu will do. Just don’t forget to include some mocktails! We stock a variety of bars to suit every style, such as our rustic Bond Bar or elegant Harpeth Bar, the latter of which can be customized with your business logo. Depending on the size of your drink menu, our 4-foot Franklin Bars will get the job done. They’re the perfect size for a small selection of wine or champagne. To help your bartenders, grab a set of shelving to stock glassware. Either our Gold Avenue Bar Back Shelf or Black Bar Back Shelf will do. If you have room, you could also include a lounge area! Check out any of our curated lounge packages, or mix and match furniture to create an on-brand social area.
Serve up Light Bites & Bubbly
To serve up delicious drinks you need equally impressive glassware. Our catalog of glassware is expansive and features options for every type of drink and every style of event. The Cybil Champagne Flutes are a quirky option for serving up a little bubbly. Or opt for our Pure or Madison Glasses when featuring a selection of wine. For specialty drinks, grab classic Martini Glassware or trendy Coupe Glasses.
Alongside beverages, you should also offer some light bites or appetizers. To create a stylish display, consider renting a second bar to serve as a budget. Alternatively, our Market Cart offers a chic look. Consider showcasing food on crisp white serving pieces or silver trays. If you need to make the most of limited space, cake stands of various heights will look gorgeous and lend dimension. To add a little color and soften up the display, grab a table runner!
Create a Grand Entrance
The most popular pieces out of our small business grand opening rentals are those that can be used to create a grand entrance. This is an effective way to catch the eye of passerby and make an outstanding first impression. Start by rolling out the red (white, purple or blue) carpet for guests. For an extra luxe look, we even have a red rope and stanchion. Next, invest in our Boxwood Walls to create an Insta-worthy photo opportunity. Easy to customize, you can decorate them with a variety of decorations as well as signage, featuring your logo or sponsors.
