Practical Rental Tips For Your Next Micro Celebration
Since the pandemic of 2020, people have had a special liking for micro celebrations. Needless to say, this bodes well for the planet at large.
While it cuts down on undue extravaganza by a large margin, it immensely reduces the usage and consumption of resources, thereby leaving a much smaller imprint on the planet. Some brands go one step further and make use of sustainable event supplies as well.
Whether we like it or not, micro-celebrations are still very much preferred by companies and individuals alike for public and private events.
Many event organizers still need to get used to booking event rentals for micro-events, especially in a city like Las Vegas, which is known for extravaganzas.
Are micro events really good for brands? How do you plan and prepare for one?
Here are some practical tips when booking event rentals in Las Vegas for micro celebrations.
Decide the theme, colors, and general vibe for your small event
A lot of organizers make the mistake of not having a theme because it is a micro event. However, irrespective of the size of the event it is important to have a fitting theme, a color palette, and a defined vibe so that the event looks put together, and not trashy.
Sometimes a full-blown theme is not necessary, all you need is a defined color palette or a generic style to go for. For example, for a micro wedding, a common color palette of neutrals will suffice, while for a Halloween party, a generic vibe could be comic books, cartoons, or Hollywood.
Setting a clean style and vibe for your micro event makes it look planned, put together, and inviting for guests. The last thing you want is to let your guests feel less important with a trashy event. It also lets you narrow down options when booking event rentals.
Choose a comprehensive supplier of event rentals for curated packages
For smaller events, as opposed to looking for individual vendors to rent furniture and décor, choose a comprehensive supplier of event rentals in Las Vegas. This not only allows you to streamline your rental orders but also get great packaged deals with multiple items.

Prepare a clear guest list and rent the required number of items
Preparing a clear guest list lets you decide the quantities of rental items required. Hence, decide whom you wish to invite and send out RSVPs in advance so that you get a tentative count of items required for the event well in time to confirm your rental bookings. The aim is to eliminate wastage of all supplies, while still making sure to have enough for the invited turnout. Follow the count for all supplies including food and drinks so that you have the right quantities of everything you need. You can keep aside a smaller margin for contingencies, but, for micro-events, as much as possible, it is better to have more control over the guests turning up.
Rent only the basics, DIY other items
The whole beauty of a micro event lies in the personal touch of the organizing brand. Unlike at big events, the guests feel closer and more personally invited by the organizer, which leaves room for minor human inconsistencies, and that is exactly what makes DIYs special.
Rent the basics from a holistic supplier of event rentals in Las Vegas as mentioned before, such as chairs, tables, bar counters, and bar stools. For creative concepts like an Instagram spot or a welcome board, take inspiration from online tutorials and DIY them yourself. This not only lets you incorporate your personal touch into the event but also makes the guests feel valued, owing to the effort you put in. As a bonus, DIYing is fairly sustainable, and flexible, and leaves ample room for creativity.
Curate smaller but thoughtful party favors
We know that small events run on a budget. However, there are several extravagant expenses you can cut down to reduce the costs, but party favors should not be one of them. They act as souvenirs from your event, and they give something for your guests to remember you by. Hence, it is always a good idea to include party favors.
What you can control are the things you choose to give away as party favors. In keeping with the micro event setting, do not choose ultra-fancy items, desserts, or keepsakes. Instead, be thoughtful and creative in your offering and try to give something of value away at the same time. For example, you can give away small potted plants or seeds, you can put together an assortment of homemade chocolates and candy, or homemade scrunchies, etc. There is a myriad of options through which you can even practice sustainability.
