Mahaffey’s January 2013 Bridal Shows: Part Two

This past Sunday, Mahaffey attended the Pink Bridal Show at the Hilton Memphis. While we did not have room to create another “mini showroom,” our event specialists did an amazing job making the most out of the space they had. Our prime location made for a busy and extremely fun afternoon. Not only were we right in the middle of all the action, but we were across from a Memphis DJ! It was hard not to break out dancing and we are sure someone caught us doing reserved dance moves during the Electric Slide. 😉 We got to visit with people we met at the Bridal Rhapsody show and introduce ourselves to new brides-to-be!

Our farm table made its way back to center stage, this time with a coral sash and coral napkins, accenting a grey and white chevron table runner. Beautiful centerpieces from Club Windward decorated the table top, creating ooh’s and aah’s from every passerby. We also showcased our newest inventory addition, whiskey barrels!

We were so happy to supply rentals to several of our partners for their booths, including the River Inn of Harbor Town, Club Windward and The Retreat at Spring Creek Ranch.

Spring Creek Ranch Wedding Reception

This past Saturday was a busy one for Mahaffey Tent & Party Rentals, and we’re excited to share what we were up to!

We provided two tents and the tent accessories for a wedding reception at Spring Creek Ranch in Collierville, TN. Spring Creek Ranch contacted us last fall needing to double their capacity space to accommodate a 580+ guest wedding reception, the largest they’ve ever done.

We worked quickly to develop a solution, which was adding two tents as an extension off the main golf house. We built scaffolding to match the height of the outdoor patio area outside the golf house and laid Bil-Jax on top of the scaffolding to create the floor surface. Two twin-tube tents were then installed side by side. The largest tent measured 40 ft x 75 ft while the other measured 40 ft x 45 ft.

Finishing touches on the tents included a gorgeous ceiling liner, three wrought iron chandeliers, carpet, wood dance floor, staging, canister lights, railing, banquet tables, cocktail tables, silver chiavari chairs, white chair pads, as well as steel and ivory pintuck linens and silver satin sashes.

This event was quite an undertaking and it definitely presented its set of challenges, the biggest one being the scaffolding since it was built on various ground levels. Our crew overcame the challenges and everything turned out great. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Spring Creek Ranch and all the other vendors to make this wedding a huge success.

Here are some of the photos we captured just hours before the event! Enjoy!
