To be honest, we are never bored at Classic Party Rentals of Virginia! As this week unfolds, we find ourselves in the midst of a whole new level of wedding awesome-ness as one of the sponsors for’s "Wedding in a Week”! Theresa Daniels and DeVan Harvey were the final couple selected to receive a $30,000+ wedding this Friday.  You can view their story, as well as the other two finalists, Tiffany and Michael on in their CBS6 interview here, and are invited to meet the happy newlyweds this Sunday, January 25, 2015, at the Richmond Wedding Experience. This premier bridal show will take place at the Greater Richmond Convention Center from 11 AM to 5 PM and of course, we will be there with bells on! Purchase tickets in advance online for ultimate convenience and plan to stop by our exhibit and say hello.

We are quite honored to sponsor the Wedding in a Week event with a host of Richmond’s finest wedding professionals, including: Maymont, with catering and decor by Mosaic Catering & Events, linens by Classic Party Rentals, photography by Dimples and Cheeks Photography, music by Manny Green Entertainment, flowers by Coleman Brothers Flowers, wedding consulting by Richmond Bridal Consulting, a dress by Bella Rosa Richmond, video by Memories Videography, transportation by James Limousine Service, a cake by Frostings, tuxedos by Jos. A. Bank Tuxedo, a photo booth by Party Pictures RVA, and a weekend getaway at the Apple Blossom Plantation. 

How does one plan a wedding in a week? It’s not for the faint of heart, but it can be done when a team of pros works together with a common purpose – a magical day for a magnificent couple. Watch Theresa and DeVan’s big event unfold this week and share congratulations with them on Sunday. We can’t wait to see you there!

Pantone Color of the Year 2015
Posted on: 1/21/2015  by Angela

It’s January again, and with the new year comes the annual launch of Pantone’s Color of the Year. We pay close attention to this perennial announcement as it tends to dictate the year’s color trends for events and bridal fashion – two of our very favorite things!

What is the Pantone Color of the Year for 2015? Marsala! Described as "a naturally robust and earthy wine red” Marsala is considered versatile and "equally appealing to men and women.” Marsala is said to flatter most skin types, and will be featured in makeup, bridesmaids dresses, men’s ties, floral design, linens and more. Pantone makes several suggestions for delicious pairings – easy to see these incorporated into a sophisticated winery wedding, or a peaceful outdoor event, right?

How do you plan to use Marsala in your 2015 wedding? Share your ideas with us in the comments or on our Facebook Page. We can’t wait to see how the color of the year inspires you!

New Year’s Eve Party Ideas
Posted on: 12/26/2014  by Angela

Need some inspiration for your New Year’s Eve 2015 celebration? Look no further than our planning and design experts to point you in the right direction!

Create a Special Photo Backdrop

There is no better time to create lasting memories than the night you welcome a new year! Put your best glitz and glam together and create a photo backdrop. Pre-select an Instagram hashtag where your friends can share photos taken on their personal phones, or arm someone with a polaroid for instant favors. If you’re having a real bash, you might hire a photo booth company to take care of all of the details for you. Your photo booth will generally come with an attendant, props, and souvenir photo strips for each of your guests.

Get Glamorous

It’s not every night that you can expect your friends to put on their finest garb and venture out just to celebrate with you. Make sure your décor reflects the glamorous atmosphere in which you hope to herald the new year. Choose from our sequined and textured linens when considering how to cover your guest tables, cocktail tables, catering and beverage displays. Use faux crystals, lush feathers, and jewel tone color schemes when creating your décor. Select a menu worthy of an elegant celebration, and create custom beverages with names evoking everything you hope the new year will bring.

Add Pizzazz

At every opportunity, add a hint of something special – a little pizzazz to keep party-goers on their toes. Frilly drink accessories, elaborate food and beverage displays, and simple décor accents all add to the excitement of any party. Go ahead and stalk the DIY sites, and keep an eye on our Facebook Page ( for inspiration! Your guests will love the extra effort and elbow grease, and you will be a happy host or hostess extraordinaire!
