Tucson Wedding Vendor Spotlight: Frostings Event Design and Rentals
categories: Floral Inspiration, For Your Ceremony, Meet Our People, Reception ideas, Trends, Wedding Inspiration, Wedding Resources, What's Hot in Rentals

Event rental companies hold the key to your wedding decor dreams- the furniture, linens, draping, and all the other extra goodies they provide make a huge impact on the atmosphere of your wedding- and planning your wedding in Tucson has never been better. The wedding vendors you have access to right here in Tucson are phenomenal and Elite Circle rental and design firm Frostings Event Design and Rentals is, without question, one of the very best you’ll ever work with.

Frostings recently moved into a huge showroom where you can see, touch, and “play wedding” with their rental and event supplies. We’ve worked with them for years and not only will you adore their selection of rental items, you’ll love their warm and helpful attitude. They’re true professionals and every event that makes an impression on us typically includes Frostings Event Design and Rentals as one of the vendors involved.

How is the new showroom different than the previous showroom? We ran our business for almost 7 years with no showroom, it was with the use of a virtual catalog and on site consultations that allowed us to take care of our clients… As we grew our inventory with more and more specialty rental items, we decided to enter the wedding market, and here we are, producing over 40 weddings a year!

In our new space you can see our collection of specialty rentals and décor, you can touch our furniture and fabric treatments, and play with natural florals; we can set up a mock-up for you to help you envision your special day and of course you can play with color and texture until you find the perfect look.

What are some of your most popular pieces? We are well known for our Lounge Furniture Rentals- our collection is the most varied in the Southwest with more colors, shapes, materials and styles than any other company and many of our pieces are one of a kind, designed by us, exclusively for the event industry. They are pieces that will enhance any space with beauty and functionality.

Also, our fabric treatments are unique to the rental market- designer fabrics help you create stages, backdrops, canopies and chuppahs; we carry many velvets, damasks, silks and satins; we also have sequin fabrics, embroidered and tri-dimensional panels, mirrored and diamond curtains…you name it, we can create any look, fulfill any dream.

We carry a new Couture linens collection that used to only be available in large cities but now, they are all here. These linens are beautiful and special- the perfect touch to highlight a sweetheart table or simply help create the most exclusive tabletops in Tucson.

What can a couple expect to see when they come to the showroom and what might surprise them? Our 10,000+ sqft 1920’s warehouse is an inspirational space with Tabletop and Lounge installations that change 4 times a year; while here, a couple will learn about the details that separate a typical celebration from one that has been planned with every detail in mind. They will get in touch with all of their senses: sight, touch, sound & taste…We offer the perfect playground for couples to reflect on their personalities and how they want to show them on the day of their wedding. Our endless possibilities ensure that their special day will be memorable.

What are some new event rental trends that you’re excited about? Our favorite event design trends include: Decorative lighting and tables with no tablecloths; the use of furniture and lighting fixtures for a more residential feel; unusual containers for candles and floral arrangements, asymmetry and the use of unique pieces, textures and colors when designing an event; transitioning your guests through different environments for a more dramatic experience.

What does Frostings offer couples planning their weddings that is completely unique to Tucson? We are the perfect fit for the discerning couple. With a Décor & Event Rentals collection like no other in the Southwest (our inventory keeps on increasing by the day) there is always something new, special and unique awaiting our clients; we never rest when it comes to making the newest trends accessible. From classic to contemporary, rustic to glam, we carry an array of pieces to cater to every taste and budget, and that is what makes us different.  The variety of our rentals and décor items is curated by our talented head designer, Paloma Rodarte, who will guide you through the entire process of creating a memorable celebration for you and your loved ones.

We are the only design firm in Arizona that owns all of our inventory, therefore, you deal directly with the source. The items are all here, available, at your fingertips.

We did our most recent fashion and cover photo shoots at the Frostings warehouse and we were so impressed by the sheer amount of space and limitless options available. The resulting images were just gorgeous!

We understand the stresses that can come from creating a delicious menu while trying to stay in budget and we are here to guide our clients and help ease their worries.

What are you most passionate about in regards to catering?

When it comes to catering we are most passionate about the food and the experience…we are also very passionate in providing top level, worry-free service. We strive to make the bride and groom feel special and important!

What trend(s) in wedding menus do you see emerging this year?

The biggest food trend we are seeing in 2014 is with interactive food. People are interested in making the meal portion of their reception memorable and fun. Whether it be family style meals, all finger foods or food stations, bringing the food to life is a huge part of the wedding this year.

2 Hearts, 1 Kitchen is a full-service caterer meaning they also make desserts and cakes. They have a vision for Tucson’s food scene that centers around impeccable service, a casual and friendly vibe, and fresh cultural fusion cuisine. Sounds perfect for a modern couple planning their wedding!

What do you want couples to know before they meet with you? 

The most important thing people need to know before our initial consultation is the budget. We can do anything- if you dream of a meal or a specific cake,  we can make it, but without knowing your budget we can’t comfortably write your menu. When it comes to money, we don’t assume, ever. We never want anyone to spend over what they are comfortable with and the only way to stay away from that is by doing the math and knowing what you have set aside for the food and or cake.

What do you think is the key to a fabulous wedding in regards to the food and menu?

What makes a wedding fabulous, when it comes to food, is making it your own. Think outside of the box and always stick with food that you like. Don’t worry about the rest of the guests- this day is about you! Do what you want and let us create a menu that you will love and it will always be special and memorable.

If you were catering your own wedding, what would be your “dream” menu?

Actually, we did cater our own wedding and it was a crazy day! Our menu consisted of Asian inspired fingers foods, like pot stickers and wontons, we also had Hawaiian local favorites including Kalua pig and chicken katsu, and we topped everything off with macaroni salad and a Chinese chicken salad. We compiled all of our favorite foods and put it in a buffet for our friends and family to enjoy. We finished our meal off with a chocolate on chocolate ocean themed wedding cake, which was made by us also. It a was wonderful evening and still one of my favorite gigs to date!
