Frequently Asked Questions.
Q. What are your rental prices?
A. Rental prices are not posted on line because they vary by city. Please email or call us to speak with a representative for your area who can answer all
of your pricing questions and give you a custom quote for your event.
Q. What is your minimum order requirement?
A. We have a $2,500 minimum for orders that are delivered on Peak Season weekends (May-October, Friday, Saturday & Sunday). In the off season our minimum is
$1,000 for the San Diego, Orange County and Los Angeles areas. For all other areas the minimum remains at $2,500. Our floral minimum for weddings is $3,500, and out floral minimum for
corporate events is $1,000.
Q. Can I come to your warehouse to look around?
A. Yes! Our Southern California Showroom is open Monday - Saturday, but we do ask that you please call ahead for an appointment. We want to make sure someone
is on hand to show you around and answer questions.

Q. Can I pick up an order from your warehouse?
A. YES! We welcome Will Call/Pick Up orders with an order minimum of $500. Orders under $2,500 can only be placed within 60 days of your event. There are no
time restrictions for Will Call/Pick Up orders over $2,500.
Q. My florist would like to pick up all of the floral containers a few days early so she can arrange flowers ahead of time. Is this okay
and is there an extra charge?
A. Yes, we do allow early pick-up of floral containers by your florist (provided they are available), and no, there is no extra charge.
Q. I noticed your company is based in California. Can you deliver to other states?
A. Absolutely! Please contact us for all the details and for more information on our inventory and delivery.
Q. I noticed your company headquarters are in Southern California. Do you deliver to Northern California?
A. Yes! We deliver to everywhere in California, and have a warehouse in the San Francisco area to accommodate our Northern California events.
Q. Is it expensive to ship items to other states?
A. It depends on where your event is taking place, how large your order is and the size and weight of the items you order. For instance, shipping tabletop can be
done by UPS, whereas shipping furniture must go by truck. For budgeting purposes, if you have a large order, such as tables, chairs and sofas for a wedding, you can estimate that shipping
will cost approximately 20% of the order total.
Q. Can you style my event when you deliver my order?
A. Yes! We offer affordable day-of styling services by our Award-Winning Design Team. Please see our Services page for more details and let us know your needs.
Q. Am I responsible for items that are stolen or damaged at my event?>
A. Morally, no. Financially, yes. We require a credit card for loss or damage, and if items are not returned or returned damaged, you will be charged for either the
repair or replacement of the item. Loss or damage doesn't happen often, but we understand things happen.
Q. Do you rent things by the hour?
A. We rent things by the day or longer.
Q. Do you offer a discount for charity events?
A. Yes, we do! Please contact us and we'll be happy to help.
