  • It was great to have someone with a vision for how the theming was going to come together and provide prompt follow up with the quotes. The dance floor looked amazing and we appreciated all the assistance with the coordination of the gaming tables.
    You and your team did a fantastic job with our event and we're appreciative of all your work and how the marquee looked on the night.

  • Thank you to you and your team, for your work in creating the perfect environment for our Friday night celebrations.

    The room looked fantastic, and all reports coming back from staff are that we had our best ever Gala Dinner.

    I really appreciate you working with us on the change of theme so late in the piece, I know how complicated this makes things but we were delighted with the Route 66 room dressing.

    Kind regards,

  • It was, once again, a pleasure working with you - I felt totally confident leaving things in your hands on event day, and really appreciated the initiative you took with organization throughout the process. The rest of the team also enjoyed working with you, and your approach worked well for the group as a whole.

    Thanks again for everything!

  • Thanks so much for doing a great job for our casino night. You were very efficient to deal with - after a quick phone call you picked up straight away on the level of theming we were after and put forward a quote that was spot on. It's a nice change to know the people you are dealing with are on the same wave length and you can trust them to do a great job. The roomed looked wonderful and tied the whole night together. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending your service to other companies that were looking for some theming to enhance their events.

  • Thank you so much for all your efforts. The evening went really well and everyone loved your decorating. The wow factor was certainly there. The praise for the effects in the room was huge and I let everyone know that you were the one who made it happen (although it was tempting to take the praise). We had a fabulous evening and I can?t wait for our next event so we can work together again.

  • Donna & her team have been fantastic! I arranged a conference at the Hilton Lake Taupo for 40 delegates & was under pressure to maintain a high standard. Donna has exceeded my expectations with an amazing transformation of a cocktail bar into a themed dinner. It worked perfectly & the delegates did not even know it was a bar, they assumed that it was a restaurant, because of all the arrangements, lighting, etc which created great ambiance. There were absolutely no complications or confusion in all the decorating & planning, & everyone was stunned by the beauty of her work. Will highly recommend you again or use you the next time I arrange something in the area.

  • Hi there Donna - extremely satisfied on all accounts, the best thing about Event rent is the ability to develop contingency plans in very small time frames where necessary and seamlessly as we moved our times around so much.

    Your ability to provide quality input on what works well with theming based on your wealth of experience was also very valuable. I felt the event and the reveal went so well and that it was handled calmly and professionally by yourself from the planning stage right through to execution.

    Thank you for not only supplying to our event but "owning" it and making it successful I felt by the second night the reveal was something I could relax about because you had everything under control, it was almost as though you were working for Chrysler and I think even your ability to network with our team at the reveal was brilliant.

  • Many thanks for theming our wee event at the Hilton on Friday night. Everything looked great and our guys were rapt when they entered the room. Music Man Wayne was a find, many thanks for organising for him to come and play. We may well have been his smallest but most adoring crowd!! Very happy with the cost, the service and suggestions, thank you to you and your team. When we are next in Taupo we will certainly be in touch. Kind regards Allison
  • Hi Donna Our Christmas Party was a huge success so many thanks for all of your work and for putting the brick wall in too! ?The place looked amazing.
  • Hi Team Donna ?Oh what a night? Thank you so much for making our event so awesome. The embassy looked spectacular and we are receiving lots of emails complimenting us/you on the set up. It was a perfect evening for us and there was nothing missing. Everyone really got into it and the night just ?went off?. Your team was superb, and made it so easy and so much fun for us. Thank you!! Kind Regards Bruce and Raewyn Bartley Taupo

We set the scene from the entrance, and carry a consistent look and feel into the room, using designer centerpieces, linens, plants, feature props and effective lighting.  We aim to make best use of the venue space with a strong focus on the stage area.

Atmosphere is key and has the power to make or break your event. This is something we understand well, and we work hard to create a great atmosphere, to ensure your guests are engaged, inspired and entertained.

We will work closely with you to gain a clear understanding of your vision, and then we will be with you every step of the way bringing that vision to life! 

We welcome the opportunity to create a stunning space for your next event.
