Rustic Drift Launch Party

On December 7th we had the awesome opportunity to host our very own VIP Launch Party @ Black-Eyed Susans in Harvey Cedars, NJ. Our good friends and co-owners Ashley Pellegrino and Chris Sanchez were kind enough to open their doors in the off-season to help host our event. We invited local wedding professionals, vendors and venues to attend our launch party, snack on some delicious hors d'oeuvres, drink some craft beers, listening to the acoustic rhythms of local musician, Ryan Zimmerman and take a gander at the rental items we would be offering for the 2014 season. Some items we featured included our 10’ and 5’ farm tables, mismatched china, wine barrel high tops, wine barrel cooler, reclaimed lumber bar cart, ice cream cart and both our Edison and lantern string lights. We packed the house and received amazing feedback and recognition from the peers among us in the industry. We couldn’t be happier with the turn out, not to mention the wonderful write up we received from the Sandpaper.

As we broke down the event the next day we were hit with the very first (of what seems like 200+) snowstorm of the season. Moving everything in a couple inches of powder was no easy feat but after the night before nothing could break our spirit. We want to thank all of our attendees. The support from the LBI community, our family and friends has been commendable beyond our belief.

Clear top tent, walls up, 65 degrees at night.. the absolute most perfect weather for last weekend's Fall inspired cocktail party. . . #rusticdrift #winebarrels #winebarrelhightop #cocktailtable #cocktailparty #harvestparty #backyardparty #tentedevent #eventrentals #weddingrentals #rusticparty #falldecor

Happy 3rd Birthday baby girl. I'll never forget this birthday, when I fabric markered your birthday shirt and you thought it was the best thing ever. Stay sweet, stay kind, stay you 💕

Heirloom heaven. This weekend's event is going to be a goodie 🍂🌾🎃 . . #rusticdrift #falldecor #heirloompumpkins #pumpkins #october

I can't get enough of all the pretty little details on top of our table from Krissa + Bill's Wedding. This bride and groom went all out collecting vintage bottles and greeting cards to use in their tabletop decor for over a year. And not just our sweetheart table. Every table was this perfect. Totally obsessed. This wedding was really incredible.
