After you’ve walked down the aisle, said “I do” under a beautiful arch as your guests cry tears of joy and mouth their congratulations…it’s time to celebrate! We each have a host of unique talents here at Moontower, but what we all definitely have in common is our love for a good party. In our humble opinion, these reception rentals highlight the newlyweds and get guests in the mood to party!
The Sweetheart Table
You’re the true focal point of the room, not a centerpiece or chocolate fondue set-up!! And at some point, every guest will want to come by and congratulate you. The Sweetheart Table gives you two the chance to share your first meal together as newlyweds and steal a kiss amongst the chaos.
The Sweetheart Table is meant to stand out, but that doesn’t mean your guests are stuck with fold-out tables and plastic chairs! We’re fans of anything elegant and modern — which is why our Harvest Table is our go-to recommendation. Lined up, they make it feel like a dinner party for one big happy family! Budget-friendly pro-tip: if you don’t have extra to spend on specialty tables for everyone, just using a couple for the head tables—you and your wedding party, or VIP tables—is a great way to get the look for less. Have the photographer focus on those tables and no-one (who wasn’t present) will be the wiser.
Add in your favorite chairs and you’re all set. You can keep it dark and sleek with a Negroni-style chair or introduce a little vintage character with the Old Pal Wood folding Chair. Chairs, while a seemingly small detail, pulls everything together to make an event dining set up great vs good. If you look at almost any amazing wedding photo, you’ll realize that a specialty event chair is used. It’s like how rugs can truly pull a room together—most people can’t put their finger on it, but it feels right. At the end of the day, the key point is that the choice is up to you because it’s YOUR day and you shouldn’t have to sacrifice style for comfort or vice-versa!
A Party Must: Lounges
There are so many elements to a good party lounge and this is where the real fun begins! Lounges give friends and family a chance to comfortably mix & mingle while offering a little rest stop for those who can’t stay away from the dance floor. Or for those who don’t/can’t dance but who like to watch (we’re looking at you uncle, Ron!). It makes things feel a bit more casual rather than being glued to your assigned dinner seat. If you don’t absolutely love the thought of picking out each pillow, tell us the overall look you’re going for and we’ll put something together for you! For some inspiration, we’ve put compiled some ready-made lounges for any and every taste. Modern, tropical, or glam… we got you.
Once you have the dining tables, chairs, and lounge furniture on your wish list, we dive into the details! Tablescapes, plant life, and party accessories all fit this category. The bride and Modern Whimsy Events designed this tablescape using Loot Vintage Rentals tabletop pieces. The simple florals and a color palette flow so naturally on top of the warm wood table…we’re in love! The candles were lit at nightfall with twinkle lights all around and it was magical!
Other details no party is complete without a dance floor and a DJ booth (so everyone knows exactly where to go to request those early-2000s hits!).
We hope the party goes on into the wee hours and then continues on at some random bar nearby. With all the thought, planning and effort that led up to this epic evening —from the engagement party, bridal shower and ceremony — you deserve to let loose and appreciate how it all came together!
