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!

Featured Item: Mirrors

Thursday, February 6, 2014

The featured item this week has a myriad of uses and we are very excited to share some photographs of how they have been used by our clients.  Our mismatched gold mirrors come in assorted shapes and designs and, let me tell you, they aren't just for displaying your perfume on your dresser anymore!

With all the new inventory that we are introducing, we thought it was time for another recipe (see here and here for more)! It is always exciting when we can offer our customers a number of pieces that work together to create one unique concept. Since signage is an integral part of many events, this recipe is really versatile. Plus, with our variety of surfaces and custom writing, there are so many creative options available to getting the exact look that you want.
