Brides can accomplish this fresh trend by intertwining twinkling lights through flowered tree branches or lush flowers. Easily obtain the dramatic, yet refined appeal of the outdoors by adding greenery, antlers, lanterns, mason jars, light bulbs or candles to your table setting or natural-feeling arrangement. This approach will give your wedding the garden-like atmosphere that everyone adores!

Snow Day at St. Jude

SNOW DAY! When these two words are said, we guarantee that you will see a smile being placed upon many children’s faces. In our first “Flashback Friday” post, we’ll take a look back to a one-of-a-kind, ice-kissed event produced for the kids of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

On this day, Mahaffey Tent & Party Rentals joined forces with ALSAC/St. Jude, Holliday Flowers & Events, Twirl Events, Target Corporate, Nolan AV, and Draper’s Catering to create a spectacular “ice”capade. One of our own Mahaffey tents housed this holiday-themed show on ice, “The Great Skate-Tacular at St. Jude”. Once inside, the kids would find ice skaters performing to their favorite holiday songs, snowflakes and twinkling lights dangling from above, shiny linens and decorative pillows, animated cutouts, photo stations, face painting, toys, food, and much, much more. Altogether, this winter wonderland created a very deserving “snow day” for the families and children of St. Jude!

We were honored to help turn this place into an extraordinary space! Equipped with tents, tables, lighting, linens, and other party rentals, Mahaffey is ready to help transform your upcoming event. Stop by our showroom or call 901.457.4538 today to schedule an appointment with one of our event specialists!

Special thanks go to our partners and fellow participants for being part of such an amazing event!
