A La Crate Ceremony Ingredients

Eeeek! We are so excited to share this post with you! After our last post featuring our Persian rugs, we were itching to put together a recipe to show you one of the rugs in action. We loved the idea of using it as a focal point for a wedding ceremony altar and knew that our rustic metal chandelier would be the perfect addition to this recipe. 

Featured Item: Persian Rugs

Thursday, March 20, 2014

One of the new items in our inventory that we are excited to feature are our two vintage Persian rugs. These rugs add such warmth and elegance to so many different settings. What I love the most is that they can also work with so many different types of decor. From ethnic to bohemian to classic - they truly fit with each person's personal style aesthetic.

Sneak Peek: Meeting Table

Thursday, March 13, 2014

As many of you know, A LA CRATE is moving to a new space in the near future! We are SO excited about the new space and couldn't wait another second to share a little sneak peek of what to expect at our new digs. Jeff is hard at work transforming a large industrial stacking CRATE (very apropos, no?) from a metal stamping factory into a table for us to meet with our fantastic clients. The crate measures 3ft. wide by 4ft. long by 3ft. tall. It will have a custom table top, built by Jeff, that will display books and other sources of inspiration, for your perusal, to get those creative juices flowing. The matching stools we found will make it easy for everyone to congregate around the table and discuss all the cool ways you can use our rentals!

Featured Item: Birdcages

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

One of the things we like about our Featured Item blog posts is showing some alternate ways to use an item in our inventory. Birdcages are a perfect example of this, since we primarily find that we rent them for use as a vessel for holding cards at weddings or showers. As much as we love this idea - and often suggest it - we also love the idea of using our birdcages for other types of decor. Think centerpieces or chandeliers!
