It’s that special time of year for high school and college graduates. Time for family and friends to recognize and celebrate students’ achievements, college scholarships, career choices, the next big goal. Sully’s has ideas and everything you need to throw a graduation bash worthy of your high school or college graduate.

The summer is wide open for celebrating your graduate so go ahead and make your plans now for a party full of memories he or she deserves. For example, document your guests by having them sign in on a unique keepsake for your graduate: A soccer ball or baseball bat for the scholarship athlete, a globe for a world traveler, a computer bag for a business major, a stole for a seminarian, a lesson planner for a teacher.

For this big crowd, a tent, tables, and chairs are a must. Sully’s makes it extra special with graduation packages that fill your needs at a price that fits your budget.

Our canopy tents with chairs and either round or banquet tables let you create a backyard space that is festive for guests and protects from rain or hot sun. For a truly festive look, ask about our high peak canopy tents. Pick-up and drop-off your items for the best deal, but if you need your tent delivered, choose one of our packages that provide delivery to your venue along with set up and break down of your tent. We’ll even set up your tables and chairs for a small additional fee.

Looking for shelter over a driveway or patio? Our frame tents are an option in our graduation packages and can be erected anywhere. Accessories also are available, including linens and tent lights for an atmosphere that enhances any theme. Consider tent sides and portable heaters for that unexpected cool evening.

This is the year to let your graduate know how special he or she is. Add flair with decorative and fun additions, including sno-cone and popcorn machines, a nacho cheese dispenser, elegant pipe and drape backdrops, even ice tables and pig spits.

Crank up the music with a portable sound system and be sure to add a photo booth or a photo backdrop to document the day. Surprise your graduate with an Instagram hashtag just for the party and get the word out to your guests.

At Sully’s, we are looking forward to those summer months when graduates everywhere are celebrated and recognized. Contact us today for details on how we can help you plan your special day.

If you have just become engaged, the sooner you start planning the better. Why? Because with so many details to set, having things the way you want with minimal stress is more likely if you start early.

Of course, take a minute to enjoy your new engagement. Share the news with family and friends, post pictures on social media, and then consider the following.

  • Set your budget – An exact figure is not necessary but establish a general budget that is realistic, so you have a starting point.

  • Start a guest list – Yes, this is just a draft, but like your budget, you need a starting point for number of guests.

  • Decide on a season for your wedding – If the time of year and the weather are important to you, make this decision early.

You now have the basics to move forward with choosing your date and your venue. If you are set on getting married during the most popular months – June and September are the big ones – you should do this quickly. Visit venues with a list of dates in mind so once you settle on your location you can book the date that is available.

Depending on the type of wedding and your venue, you may need to act quickly on some rental arrangements.

If you have plans to work outdoors or in an unheated garage or shop during the winter months, a quality torpedo heater can make all the difference. Sully’s has 50,000 to 80,000 BTU units as well as units up to 190,000 BTU to warm any size space for your projects.

An appropriately sized torpedo heater is the best way to keep unheated space comfortable. Both kerosene and propane units are safe to operate in garages, barns and workshops with minimal odor and limited moisture build-up. Units have a thermostat and run automatically to keep your space at a steady temperature.

Smaller units provide adequate heat in smaller spaces without the noise associated with larger units. We recommend larger units to provide more comfortable conditions for outdoor work.

Also available for garage and workshop applications are our 85,000 BTU tent heaters. Frequently used for outdoor gatherings to warm tents on cool nights, these units also can be attached to your natural gas line for use indoors.

Tips for using indoor portable heaters

  • Crack a window or door to provide ventilation when running your heater.

  • Aim your heater into open space and not directly at any object to avoid damage from overheating.

  • Consider using a fan to distribute heat more evenly.

  • Install a carbon monoxide detector in your garage or workspace for added safety.

Sully’s offers a wide variety of heaters for various applications, including outdoor gatherings. Ask us about how our tent heaters can be adapted for both outdoor gatherings and indoor activities, as well as options for patio heaters, cool air movers, and propane and kerosene heating units.

When holiday party plans and guest numbers exceed your inventory of table wear, rental options can solve the problem and remove the stress. China and table linens are often used only once or twice a year, so renting these items not only makes sense, it allows you to personalize your party.

Your china, flat wear and glass wear can set the tone for your gathering, creating a table setting that provides the celebratory atmosphere you seek. Even simple white china is an elegant addition to your dinner spread, while matching flat wear and glass wear finishes the look. Best of all, you have what you need to serve all your guests.

Table linen rental goes beyond a simple tablecloth and may include napkins, chair covers and table runners. And while the most popular choice is basic white polyester, options can include a host of colors, as well as satin, pintuck designs, velvet, and sequined options.

For your holiday party, consider china and linen rental from Sully’s. Advantages of rental over buying your own include:

  • Reasonable rates for rental of high-quality linens
  • Tablecloths available for a variety of table styles and sizes
  • Ready-to-use linens are clean and need no ironing

  • Options available for every budget
  • Consider china, flatwear and glasswear rental so you have exactly what you need for your guests
  • Sully’s service makes setup and cleanup easy before and after your party

At Sully’s we have a wide variety of party supplies to make entertaining this holiday season easy for you and your guests. Call today for an estimate for your linen and china rental, or for any supplies you need to make your party perfect.

Fall maintenance, winterizing with air compressor

It is the time of year to begin preparing your home and yard for the winter months. This means completing projects you may have put off, such as building that tool bench or finishing exterior repairs on your deck, house or garage.

If you have water features in your yard, a sprinkler system or a pool or spa, you will need to winterize water pumps and lines to protect them from freezing.

An air compressor can make your job easier no matter what items are on your maintenance list. Air compressors will power a wide variety of air tools, from jack hammers to grease guns. Since home repairs and winterizing can mean needing everything from a socket wrench to a drill driver, an air compressor can make all the difference in your efficiency.

Protecting water lines and pumps in sprinkler systems and pools means draining them completely before temperatures drop to freezing. While the pipes can be drained manually, blowing out the pipes with an air compressor is recommended to ensure the pipes are protected. Once the water is turned off, an air compressor connected to the water line will effectively clear the pipes of all water.

When using an air compressor, it is important to check the psi limits on your air powered tools and to confirm the type of water lines running to your sprinkler system and pool to determine appropriate psi that can safely be used.

Sully’s offers for rent a 185 cfm towable air compressor that will handle everything from powering your air tools to blowing out water lines, making it easy for you to finish all your fall projects. Diesel powered with a psi range of 80 to 125, it provides convenience even in rural settings.

Check with our experts to get tips on using a variety of tools and an air compressor from Sully’s to winterize your home and yard this fall.
