Giving Back-Blue I Do...Law Enforcement Wedding

Gilbert and I have always been big supporters of military and first responders.  We recognize the immense sacrifice they make to protect our community and keep us safe.  So when we were asked by Heather Tyler of Blue Skies Events to support her Blue I Do Law Enforcement Wedding, we said "of course"!  We happily donated our gold glass beaded Charger Plates.  

Meghan and Gabe were married at the Davis Island Garden Club in Tampa and received a donated $30K+ wedding from some of Tampa's most talented and generous wedding vendors.  What a wonderful way to say "thank you" to them for their service.  Check our the beautiful images from their special day!

Giving Back...Riverhills Elementary Daddy-Daughter Dance

In February, Riverhills Elementary in Temple Terrace asked us to participate in their annual Daddy-Daughter Dance.  When we found out it was a 50's Sock Hop theme, we were so excited! We new our black and white checked dancefloor was a perfect fit. Congrats to the planning committee for making this such a special night for the many Sock Hoppers in attendance.  They had a blast!  

Charity of the Month Program

Spring has arrived and as the season of new beginnings, we are excited to announce the unveiling of our new Charity of the Month program.  The details are pretty simple.  Starting April 1st, each month, Signature Event Rentals will designate a charity to which we will donate a portion of profits from all events booked within that month.  We plan to support a variety of organizations that help kids, animals, veterans and the homeless.  If you have a charity you would like us to consider, feel free to reach out to me at  We’d love to hear from you!

We are pleased to announce that our first featured charity in April is Southeastern Guide Dogs.  This organization works to train service dogs for the visually impaired as well as veterans living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  Fully accredited and founded in 1982, Southeastern Guide Dogs serves over 450 graduates across the US and continues to place over 100 dogs each year.  

In the Valentin house, we had the honor a few years back to serve as Christopher's retirement home.  Christopher's owner, Keith, was a family friend and worked with Gilbert.  He even attended our wedding and visited with Gilbert at work on a daily.  Christopher, a sweet white Labrabor, had served with Keith since he was a pup and the time had come for him to relax and live the life of luxury.  We were thrilled to have him do this in our home.  Thanks to Southeastern Guide Dogs for all the work that they do!

Samantha, Gilbert and the Signature Event Rentals Team!



Signature Event | Mahaffey Theater

We love it when a Bride and Groom thinks out of the box.  This couple did just that!  A black and white palette was beautifully used at this Mahaffey Theater wedding last spring.  And adding icing to the decor cake were the black and white stripe patterns.  Unique and fun yet sophisticated, this decor was a perfect reflection of the newlyweds' style.  Check out the gorgeous images by Andi Diamond Photography.

Signature Event | Special Moments and Lifelong Studios

We love working with couples that select unique venues for their celebration.  The Tampa Firefighter's Museum totally fits the bill for unique.  Located in downtown Tampa and built in 1911, the former home to the Tampa Fire Department Headquarters, this two story facility houses the official Tampa Firefighter's Museum along with event space on both floors.  Our clients, working with Tammy Waterman with Special Moments Weddings and Events, selected our Mahogany Chiavari chairs with ivory Signature cushions.  They also chose to use the classic Kings (also known as Feasting) tables to seat their wedding party and family for an more intimate feel.  Florals in pinks, mauves and ivory from Belle Fleur Studios complemented the welcoming pineapple theme the newlyweds showcased.  Check out these beautiful images of the celebration from Life Long Studios

Signature Event | Special Moments Wedding and Event Planning

We had the pleasure of working with Tammy Waterman and crew from Special Moments Weddings and Events on this fun wedding at the Powel-Crosley Estate in Sarasota.  The mix of fuchsia and silver was so fun and a palette we don't see too often.  Tammy worked with the bride and groom along with Apple Blossoms Floral Designs to make this wedding unforgettable.  The Powel-Crosley Estate is quite versatile and this couple decided to say their "I Do's" waterside followed by dinner in the great room and dancing in the courtyard.  We were thrilled to provide our Silver Chiavari chairs with ivory Signature cushions and our fun and modern silver Swirl chargers for the reception.

Signature Event | MMD Events and the Tampa Yacht and Country Club

When you are blessed to provide rentals for the number of events we are each year, you think you've "seen it all" when it comes to decor.  However, every now and then, a wedding comes along that you are just in awe of.  This was one of those weddings for me.  We had the pleasure of partnering with MMD Events who provided the design and decor of this amazing event.  What really captivated me was the color palette-a beautiful mix of greys and earthtones.  Or better described by Amanda Allen of MMD Events and Amanda Allen Designs as “Clean, chic and organic.  Mahogany, slate grey and white create an understated palate for abundant greenery and large white blooms...”.  Hosted at the Tampa Yacht and Country Club, we provided our Mahogany Folding chairs for the ceremony and our Mahogany Chiavari chairs with white Signature cushions for the reception.  What an unforgettable night it was for another happy couple!  Check out the beautiful images by Justin DeMutiss Photography.

Stylized Shoot with Brandon Rental Centers and Casa Lantana

One of our favorite parts of working in this industry is the chance to build relationships with other vendors.  We love meeting new people and working as a team to help our clients produce unforgettable events.  We recently had the chance to help one of our vendor partners show off new and exciting additions to their inventory.  Brandon Rental Centers has purchased a new high peak canopy tent and needed to show it off.  The photoshoot, which took place at Casa Lantana in Brandon, also helped us show off our Silver Chiavari chairs and Mahogany Barstools.  If you are planning an outdoor event and need a unique style tent, give them a call!  In the meantime, if you are looking for high quality Silver Chiavari chairs and Mahogany Barstools, don't hesitate to call us!  Images by Matt Clark Pictures

New Signature Inventory Showcased at the ABC/PWG Meeting

We were honored to have the opportunity to showcase our new Bamboo Charger Plates at the June 2016 local ABC/PWG Luncheon.  Not only a great opportunity to meet new industry professionals and catch up with our longtime Friendors, this meeting gave us a chance to introduce our new Bamboo Charger plates.  Displayed against a light blue and silver swirl table linen and fuchsia satin napkins from Over the Top Linens, the dark brown charger plates popped on the table.  Complimented by our mahogany Chiavari chairs, the decor by Special Moments Event Planning was a perfect fit for the open and airy natural light of the USF Galleria near Embassy Suites USF.  Thank you to ABC for the opportunity to share our new product lines.

New Signature Inventory

We are super excited to share new inventory with everyone the second it comes through the door.  Its like sharing a new toy with our friends at the playground!  Today's inventory isn't really new but what is new is the creative and fun designs our clients are coming up with to show it off.  Our black and white vinyl dancefloor is one of the most versatile items we carry.  Because it consists of one foot squares, we can totally customize the design.  While most clients favor the black and white check design, the newest configuration is a Bullseye!  How fun is that?!  The options are endless...check out the images below.

Happy Birthday America!

July 4th is one of our favorite holidays (only behind Christmas)!  We are a pretty patriotic family and enjoy the annual chance to celebrate the many freedoms we live everyday.  Being its is our fav holiday, its a perfect excuse to throw a party!  Once we attend the local parade, we personally throw a BBQ and pool party for our family and friends.  Lastly, we wrap the day up with a trip together to see the town's fireworks display.  What are your plans for Monday?  Maybe these DIY ideas will give you a little holiday inspiration.

Take a minute to think about what July 4th means to you and we hope you too have the chance to enjoy a little time off with your family and friends.  Happy 4th!!

I am totally going to make this...wish me luck!
