4 Items You Should Be Renting for the Holidays

Waters True Value is more than just a hardware store. We also provide quality rental equipment for contractors, do-it-yourselfers and party and wedding events. You name it, we probably rent it.

With the holidays approaching, here are a few suggestions from your friends at Waters on what you should be renting:

  1. TABLES &

  2. CHAIRS

We know how it goes. The whole family is coming over for Thanksgiving and you’re thinking to yourself, “How in the world am I supposed to fit all these *cough (crazy) cough* people in my house?!” You’ll put a few of the adults at the dining table, a few on the couch in the living room and of course the kids at the designated “kids table”. But what about the rest of that big family of yours? Are they supposed to take shifts? Wait to eat until a free chair is available? You could easily go out and spend a couple hundred dollars on fold out tables and chairs, but then where would you store them until the next year? (Since honestly, how often are you really going to pull those out?)

Here is an easy solution for you – just RENT them. You’ll spend half the cost of what it would be to buy and you won’t have to worry about storing them year after year. And the best part – if you rent through Waters Rental, we can even deliver and pick them up for you! It doesn’t get any easier. Make grandma proud and make sure the whole family has a seat to feast this Thanksgiving.

  1. CHAFING DISH SETS

Whether you’re organizing a holiday work party for the office, or just planning your own family’s holiday feast, chafing dish sets are a MUST. Seriously, they are a hosts’ dream come true, especially if your event/get-together isn’t professionally catered.

Chafing dish sets keep your food warm and allow your guests to serve themselves buffet style. Having a Thanksgiving dinner? Display your food in an attractive way and don’t worry about having to keep reheating things in the oven or on the stove top. If you don’t entertain frequently, renting these dishes is the best option. Plus, empty out what’s leftover after your event and Waters Rental will do the rest! That’s right – you can put the soap and sponge aside. Waters Rental will have your dish sets professionally cleaned after use.

  1. PATIO HEATER

Patio heaters are the perfect holiday event addition to help make space of your outdoor areas long after the 80-90 degree weather has passed. Don’t keep your family and friends cooped up under your roof. Open those doors and let them venture outside to enjoy some fresh air. You will all be toasty warm from the heat radiating off these patio heaters.

If the weather is nice enough and you have an overflow of family and friends over to taste that should-be-award-winning holiday meal, set up tables outside and place a couple patio heaters nearby to let everyone enjoy their meal comfortably.

Green Lights for Veterans!

There’s a movement to light up neighborhoods across the US with green in honor of veterans this November 11. We are humbled by the service of our military personnel, so we’re all about this endeavor!

Except for one small problem…it appears green lightbulbs are in short supply. So we found three easy ways to turn those green lights on at your house and in your neighborhoods…and what a great way to get your kids involved in an awesome project!

Mix up some Elmer’s Glue and green food coloring and you get a nice bright, but see through, green.

Mason Jars and glow in the dark paint, like this one from Rust-o-leum or this Krylon spray paint. Couple it with a battery operated tea light and the glow would be amazing!

Like the above projects, the goal is to line the jar to get its green color – this one uses tissue paper, Mod Podge and a battery operated candle.
