LAURIUM - Whether you're planning an intimate backyard get together or celebrating a special occasion on a much larger scale, U.P. Event Rentals has the experience and flexibility to accommodate.
The Laurium business is owned by Ryan and Royale Walter who together help take the hassle out of party planning. Specializing in indoor and outdoor events, they provide rentals for tents, tables, linens and chairs; and on top of that, offer delivery and help with setting up.
Ultimately, they "bring the fun to you."
"On the day of your event, the last thing you want to worry about is getting your rental items and setting them up," Royale said. "We do all of that."
Delivery within a 15-mile radius of Laurium is free, and delivery fees outside of that range are very reasonable.
U.P. Event Rentals can accommodate all sorts of occasions - weddings, reunions, graduations, birthdays, holiday celebrations, sporting events - and can set up at just about any location.
"For some of the events we've covered, customers have used their backyards," Royale said. "We've also been fortunate to cover events with beautiful outdoor ceremonies along Portage Canal, on Eagle River beach, at Big Traverse, at the Eagle Harbor Marina, and in Copper Harbor ... It's rewarding to see people enjoying some of the most precious memories of their lives, and in some of the most beautiful places right here in the U.P. We're so fortunate to be able to take advantage of our surroundings for special events."
Items customers can rent include black and white chairs, 8-foot rectangular tables, linens, and tents, ranging in size from 10-by-10 feet to 40-by-60 feet.
"We currently boast a 40-foot-by-60-foot tent with beautiful cathedral windows," Royale said. "With enough notice, we can get you just about anything you are looking for."
This time of year, families are planning graduation parties, and U.P. Event Rentals does offer party packages.
The party package includes a 20-foot-by-20-foot pole or frame tent, 6, 8-foot rectangular tables and 40 chairs.
Rental packages are also available for large events. Providing rental services specifically for tables, chairs, linens and tents allows U.P. Event Rentals to offer customers reasonable prices and free delivery.
"We're very affordable and reasonable and can accommodate any budget," she said. "Not only that, Ryan has 15 years of experience and is great with helping people decide on event locations and how to set up. We both enjoy helping people plan for their special occasions, and it is a great feeling watching as their event comes together."
