either with rentals or our other design services and we will determine if we
make a good fit.
Do you offer a discount for non-profit organizations or charity events?

inventory and the time that it would take to sort through specific patterns we
are unable to accommodate this request. But, you can rest assured that each
piece lucky enough to be included in each collection has been hand-picked with
careful consideration as to how it fits in with the rest. And, we will always
make every effort to consider any special requests with the utmost care and
attention to detail as we curate your order!

can determine this for you and we reserve the right to refuse rental if we feel
as though confusion is questionable. A list of other rental vendors being used
for your event may be required to help us make our decision.
