Free Fall Printables to Accent Your Party

With Fall officially underway (although the temperatures haven't been reflecting that this week...), we thought it would be fun to showcase some free Fall printables and give you some ideas for how you could use them at your wedding, corporate event, party, or just in your home or office decor!

Check out this classic leaf print from A Night Owl Blog. Wouldn’t it be perfect as an accent piece on a sign-in table at a wedding, or framed on your mantle at home?

Print out these signs and put them in frames surrounded by floating candles or a flower arrangement and you have a nice Autumn centerpiece at the tables for your corporate dinner under one of the tents we have available to rent!

from Tatertots and Jello 
This whimsical word art would be a fun way to have guests at your get together sign in (and write what they’re thankful for!) around the border, then frame later OR print out a smaller version for a mini office desk frame to brighten up your workspace.


We love the mention of cozy sweaters in this print by Pitter and Glink! (Maybe this time next week, we'll all be able to unpack our cozy sweaters to wear!) This would be a sweet print to have on display at a pumpkin or fall themed shower, or how about frame it to display on a table with coffee and pumpkin spice creamer at your fall wedding reception?

Can't you just smell the leaves in the air and the bonfire and apple cider now?
It's like love is in the air. :)

Pumpkins, Leaves, Sweaters, Football, Lattes …. and Festivals!



Aren't there so many wonderful things that show up around the same time that the leaves begin to fall? Everyone around town starts to sport their favorite team colors on a sweater while stomping through leaves to their favorite coffee shop to savor a hot latte topped with cinnamon (iced coffees are great, but we've been enjoying those all summer).

We love every one of these little signs of fall, our favorite part about the changing season... is the upcoming Fall Festivals!

We’re well known for having an exciting assortment of moonwalks for kids of all ages - from toddlers to “kids at heart" - but did you know that we also have concessions rentals so that you can have delicious snacks at your trunk or treat? Our popcorn machine or our cotton candy machine would make the perfect sweet or salty treats at any cool weather event! We even provide the supplies you’ll need to serve them (one less thing to remember at the store, right? Besides, you'll need the extra room in the shopping cart for candy corn...)



If you’re planning to have a carnival style Fall Festival, check out the fun Carnival games we have for rent including Skeeball, High Striker, or our Inflatable 3 in 1 Carnival Game.


 If you need prizes to give away to game winners, let us know and we can help you get those at a great deal as well.

October is a busy month (everyone must love fall festivals as much as we do!), and a lot of these fun attractions are rented quickly….so give us a call today so we can help you plan the PERFECT family event for your church, school, or work group while Fall is fresh on your mind.

Happy First Day of Fall!

#TransformationThursday - Birthday Party Edition!

 If you follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, or Pinterest you’ve seen some of our #transformationthursday posts showing how our rentals have turned the simplest space into something truly spectacular!

This week, check out the transformation made to this backyard for a three year old’s PJ Masks Birthday Party! 

Before....Fun Space to run and Play! (But where to sit?)
...besides, this needs to be a PJ Masks Headquarters for the Party!

This space on any other day is perfect for running and playing, but when it came time to party, there wasn’t much sitting space for guests to relax. Plus, a May afternoon birthday meant the sun was shining and a little extra shade was needed to keep the guests cool.  Fifteen white folding chairs, a roundcocktail table, and a blue umbrella table rented from Deborah's Party Rentals solved those problems!

Check out all that seating and the extra shade from the Umbrella!

One of our rectangle tables covered in plastic table cloths to coordinate with CatBoy, LunaGirl, and Gekko was perfect for holding snacks and drinks.


To make the icing have green speckles like Gekko, just mix in some green sugar sprinkles! Here is a link to some similar cupcake toppers you can print if you're planning a PJ Masks party.


Speaking of snacks, the shaved ice machine with Blue Raspberry syrup (like CatBoy of course!) was a hit with all of the guests (from under age 1 to over age 70!). What a perfect way to keep cool when the temperature was hanging around 80 degrees.

Everyone wanted seconds on the Shaved Ice.

In addition to the slide and backyard toys that the birthday boy had set out for his friends to play, he also picked out the Fat Cats tossing game to have set up for everyone to enjoy. We have so many fun carnival type games you can rent!

Fat Cats was a fun game for all the kids and adults to play.
A month later, when it came time for this Birthday Boy’s little brother to celebrate his first birthday, the backyard was transformed into an ocean-themed party! (Stay posted for a post about that party in the future).

10 Party Tips that Will Rock Your World


When you’re planning any kind of party, no matter the size, location, theme or occasion certain details must be addressed.  The following list will make your party planning process considerably easier.  These 10 party tips will lighten your load and have your guests cheering for more.  Happy Planning!
1.       Freeze fruit to chill your favorite beverage.  Fruit will not only add flavor to water or wine, but will also keep your beverage of choice cool without watering it down.  Bottoms up!



2.       Use food as a container to serve other food.  This technique is most often seen on fruit and veggie trays, but is an easy way to dress up your buffet.  This is the perfect place for your favorite dip.



3.       Make it clean up easy with baskets lined and labeled for trash and recyclables.  The baskets look nicer than regular trash cans and you won’t be sorting through the mess after the guests go home.



4.       When using extra power sources and extension cords for an outdoor event, make sure to protect the intersection of all your cords by cutting holes in simple disposable containers.  This simple step will prevent guests and their vehicles from shutting down the fun unexpectedly.


5.       When partying outside, don’t forget the sunscreen and bug spray stops.  Nothing can kill the fun faster than bug bites and sunburns.



6.       Glow in the dark everything!  If something is fun during the day, it’s even more fun in the dark where it glows.  This can be fun for kids and adults alike and the products are great on the party budget as well!




7.       Use what’s on hand in a new way.  Your guests will be so impressed when you have taken ordinary household or office items and used them in a new way to accommodate your party’s theme of choice.  Get creative!



8.       Light it up!  Nothing changes the mood more effectively than lighting.  Whether you hire pros to create a custom monogram to be highlighted at your wedding reception, or you simply use Christmas lights across your fence to create a romantic effect to your backyard garden party, lightening can make or break your party.




9.       Make sure your food is easy to eat.  All the beautiful displays that can be imagined when entertaining food can underwhelm when guests don’t have an accessible way to eat it.  Try to remember the logistics of your event when planning the menu.  For example, don’t serve steak when guests have nowhere to sit down with a knife and fork.  Finger foods without messy sauces are always crowd pleasers at parties.




10.   Last but not least, don’t forget about the kiddos when planning your next party.  In most cases, you can count on kids being among your guests, so don’t leave them out.  Even if your main focus of the party is an adult centered event, keeping the kids occupied will insure success.  A Kid Zone is the perfect way to keep the integrity of the main theme of your party still intact.



AS you can see, these party tips can be lifesavers for your future successful party planning adventures.  Have Fun!
