We encourage mixing and matching between collections! However, certain collections are intentionally curated with mixed patterns or colors (for example, the blue and white china) or are mixed because they are antique collections that can’t be renewed (for example, The Sevres Collection).

Q: HOW WILL MY RENTALS ARRIVE AND HOW SHOULD I PACK THEM BACK UP SO THEY ARE READY FOR PICK UP?
Your china, flatware and glassware will arrive clean in racks covered in plastic. It is best to open the plastic at the top and keep it around the crate to collect waste and to identify the correct rack for restocking the item. We take extra steps to label our tabletop to correspond with your event so please let us know which item you are using for each course or glassware for table or bar so that we can properly label it for your caterer. They will love you for it! Our chairs arrive in stacks of ten with protect covers to prevent scratches. The cushions will be separate in bags. Please note that unless you prearrange service with us, we will need to pick the chairs up the same way we dropped them off. Let’s not forget the service pieces; many items such as chafers come in special built crates so please allow for space.
It is not necessary to wash the dishes, just scrape off any excess refuse and put back in the container. That is the beauty of rentals—no one likes to do the dishes after the party!

WHAT HAPPENS IF SOMETHING BREAKS OR AN ITEM IS MISSING FROM MY EVENT?
