What a fantastic year 2017 has been and one full of big changes for Burns Rent-Alls! After moving their warehouse in January 2017 to a new location of 2401 N. Home Street in Mishawaka, Indiana, they followed with a move of the Special Events Office in May, once the remodel was complete. “Our company has continued to expand with each passing year and we needed a location that would allow all of our operations to be in one place while providing plenty of space for our ever-expanding rental inventory!” says Amelia Huston, Special Event and Warehouse Assistant. “Our new location has allowed us to create a brand new showroom and an up and coming interactive design studio right in our office! Before our move, this long-standing family business had been located on Mishawaka Avenue for over 100 years! We are so excited to be in this new space and look forward to continuing the journey of making this new building fun and exciting for everyone who visits!"


As part of a night of networking and inspiration, WeddingDay partnered with Burns to celebrate our new issue release and Burns’ Open House on November 1st, 2017. Just one of the evening's exciting events was a tablescape contest in which teams were formed and each created their own unique tablescape. “We provided multiple styles of chairs, linen, china, flatware, glassware, chargers and centerpieces,” explains Amelia. “Teams chose their inspiration and created their table. Event specialists judged the tables based on expertise and standards we use to set-up events. The winning team was chosen based on proper placement of glassware, flatware, china and overall creativity.”



Here are just a few great examples of the impressive tablescapes Burns presents to guests as they walk through their stunning, new space:

Fall Elements

“We were thinking of nature and fall when designing this table. The copper flatware and bronze runner brought such a warm feel to the wooden farm table while the vibrant flowers, greenery and orange napkin pulled in the fall colors. The final touch, our Jenny plates, added to the look and tied the china into our theme.”


White & Burns Green

“While designing this table we were thinking of a pure white look with a pop of color (Burns Green). We set sheer white drapes to softly frame the table, white flooring, a white rosette linen to add texture, and white furniture for a lounge area to the side. We brought in color with black china and flatware and the bold, crisp, green chair and drape ties, napkin rings and centerpieces.”


Modern Elegance

“For this table we used our new customizable modern furniture paired with a metallic linen (from our newly launched linen line!). We used silver china and added in color with our cobalt goblets and black Rizzo flatware. The mirrored centerpiece box and crystal ball finished off the elegant look while keeping it modern."
