When it comes to planning the perfect party, one important fact that is easy to overlook is lighting. Since the wrong lighting scheme can throw off the mood of the celebration, it's always a good idea to explore different lighting options when consulting with your Austin party rentals company. Continue reading to learn about just a few of the many lighting options you could implement at your party.
Add Drama and Elegance with a Classy Chandelier
Did you know that you can rent beautiful and elegant chandeliers from your Austin party supplies rental company? Chandeliers have long been a favorite lighting fixture for party planners because of their unique ability to enhance interior ambience. Our chandelier collection accommodates a variety of styles, from more modern with our wrought iron model, to classic with our gold filigree fixture.
Create a Whimsical Look with Dainty String Lights
If the look you are going for is more whimsical and lighthearted, don't hesitate to talk to the party rentals staff about the different string lights we carry. String lights are a great choice for weddings as well as evening events and can be used either indoors or outdoors. Best of all, they are easy to install.
Use Pins and Pucks to Create Focal Points
A pin light is a single light that can be focused on a specific area in a room, such as a stage. A puck, on the other hand, is a medium beam light that diffuses the focal point to a greater degree. Together, these two spotlights are the perfect duo to have on hand if you want to create different zones in a ballroom or if you simply want to create an element of drama and excitement.
Whatever your lighting requirements are for an upcoming event, you can rely on the staff at American Party Rental to meet those needs. Our family-owned business is committed to providing our customers with the best services and the highest quality party rentals.

There are many types of events, each with its own unique purpose and needs. One need that is nearly always universal and far too rarely considered until it’s too late, however, is that of a stage. You can rent a stage from a good party rental supply company. Continue reading to find out more about how a stage can improve your next event.
Stages allow the main attraction to be seen by everyone. Whether you have a band, a DJ, a special presenter, or some other form of entertainment, there’s bound to be moments during your event where someone will say or do something that the entire crowd wants to see or hear. Stages come in all sizes, and rentals can accommodate virtually any budget, so it’s definitely a consideration worth making for the sake of your event’s success.
At American Party Rental in Austin, we provide party supplies and equipment rentals, including stages. Our stages are affordable and delivered to you for your convenience. Call (512) 236-5773 to learn more about our party rentals for your next event.

Whenever you’re planning a special event, the menu is definitely a critical piece of the puzzle. Even a small menu can quickly become overwhelming if you don’t take time to design and plan it properly. Here are a few tips to help you prepare everything, down to the table and chairs:
Decide What the Focus of Your Menu Will Be
Whether it’s your great-grandmother’s savory brisket or your signature roasted quail, you need to know from the beginning what the main course is going to be. You wouldn’t want to serve the same appetizers and side dishes with smoked salmon that you would with a pot of chili. Your main course will also help determine what the style of your meal will be, whether that’s casual, formal, or buffet.
Consider Color and Flavor Balances
While you do want to have a nutritionally sound menu, you also want it to look good. Green is beautiful and healthy, but too much of it just doesn’t look very enticing. Similarly, buttery mashed potatoes, soft biscuits, gravy, and other starchy foods may be comforting and delicious, but they can make your spread look bland and boring, not to mention unhealthy. Go for diversity in colors, flavors, and textures that are appropriate for the main course, and try not to use the same ingredients in too many dishes.
Make It as Easy as Possible on Yourself
Avoid the temptation to try out a brand new and complex recipe for the first time. Stick with things you know you can make quickly and well, and that won’t break your budget. Talk to a party rental supply company about commercial food service equipment that you can use to serve, and go ahead and take care of your flatware and seating needs while you’re there. The more you can do to minimize your work, the more you’ll be able to actually enjoy the event you’ve planned.
Come see us at American Party Rental in Austin or call (512) 236-5773 if you’re planning a party or special event. Our high-quality party rentals will help you make your next event a success. You can also find out more about the equipment we offer by exploring our website.

The holiday season is officially upon us—and what better way to usher in the season than with a memorable holiday party! American Party Rental is here to assist you with all of your party planning needs. From party supplies to food service, we are here to take the stress out of the planning process so you can enjoy yourself. Keep the following tips in mind when planning an event this holiday season.
The Guest List
Before anything, you must decide how large of a party you want to throw. Whether you decide on an intimate gathering of close family and friends, or a blowout shindig, the number of guests will affect everything from the amount of table and chair rentals needed to the types of table linens you choose.
Another important factor of your holiday party is what you will be serving your guests. It is beneficial to decide early on how you will serve the food; some prefer to provide a variety of appetizers, while some prefer the buffet option, and others opt for the traditional plated meal. One must also remember to provide food options for those with special dietary preferences and food allergies.
Decorations play a huge role in setting the mood of a party, and they also allow you to get creative. Your party doesn’t have to involve a tent rental in order to impress your guests. Your guests will notice details such as your choice of table settings, to the centerpieces, as well as the larger decorative elements like holiday lights.
