Party Rentals at New Venue Open House

Looking for a beautiful, outdoor, and secluded venue surrounded by mountains and trees for your next event? Look no further, we have a great venue for you: The Thomas Estate. Last week, Willowstone Catering, the exclusive caterer for this beautiful estate, hosted an open house and The Stuart Rental Company, the preferred tent and party rental vendor, had the privilege to provide all the party rentals for this event.

Willowstone Catering not only planned and organized this event, but also designed every aspect of it, (not to mention their delicious food!) Megan Haney Designs created all the beautiful floral arrangements for this event.

The Thomas Estates is a great venue for weddings, corporate events, fund-raisers, etc. If you are getting married and looking for a venue that can encompass a ceremony and reception site, this venue is ideal. Couples have the choice of having the rolling hills of Mount Diablo State Park as their backdrop for their ceremony, or use the onsite chapel located at the very top of the hill. Below is a picture of the chapel with a 4’ banquet table draped with our Donatello White linen.

As we go down the hill, we come to the Estate Home, with its large dining area, living room, and kitchen. To the side of the house, cocktail tables for sitting and standing were set-up outdoors for guests to enjoy views of the vineyard. Lamour Chocolate Linens with White Resin Chairs were used for the seated tables, while Crushed Iridescent Ivory Linens, cinched with Lamour Chocolate Sashes were used for the stand-up cocktail tables. Each table was accented with a beautiful centerpiece.

Inside the Estate Home, we set up a beautiful long dining table made up of 2 Kings Tables, surrounded by Mahogany Chiavari Chairs. Willowstone designed this table in fall colors that complimented the room brilliantly. Lamour Chocolate Linens are accented with Crushed Iridescent Copper Table Runners. Antique Copper Glass Chargers, Infinity Gold China, and Acropolis Gold Flatware, continues this warm brown-toned theme. Lamour Gold Napkins lightened up each table setting.

Lastly, at the bottom of the hill, scattered cocktail tables with Twilight Amethyst Linens surrounded the pool area. A built-in kitchen where Willowstone Catering grilled skewers of lamb, beef, chicken, and shrimp, topped with different delicious sauces (mmmm!) is conveniently located right by the pool.

This Open House was such a great experience and we were able to see the talents of such wonderful people in the event industry. A round of applause again to:
