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. For outdoor venues, for some barn or warehouse style venues, or if you are using a park or your yard for your reception, you may need to rent tents, tables and chairs, linens, and more. At Sully’s we can transform your backyard or park into a perfect reception venue.

  • Tents are available in pole and frame styles and allow for accessories such as sides and café lighting.

  • You will want to consider seating arrangements before deciding on round, rectangular or serpentine tables and appropriate chairs.

  • Linens, including a variety of tablecloths and chair covers, are available in many colors and textures that can enhance your décor.

  • Depending on your venue and catering arrangements, you may also need to choose table wear, including china, glass wear and utensils.

If you are looking for help in making decisions for your wedding, there are many wedding planning websites that can help with options for any budget. Many couples also are choosing to plan a celebration of their engagement with the special people in their lives at least in part as a practice run to their reception. A small party provides an opportunity to test out caterers, photography and videographers.

The team at Sully’s is ready to help you plan the perfect wedding, with rental options for tents, tables and chairs, linens, table wear, bar service, lighting, dance floors, and sound systems. Call for details on how we can help in planning your wedding, engagement party or both.

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
  • A wide variety of colors and styles in linens and china allow you to customize your party
  • 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.

Fall’s cooler temperatures probably have you thinking about spending more time indoors and preparing for the upcoming holiday season.

At Sully’s, our hardwood floor drum sander is easy to use and available for rent along with a floor edger sander for completing corners and tight edges along baseboards. We provide tips and accessories for you to safely complete your hardwood floor project for a professional-looking finish without the cost and hassle of hiring a professional.

We recommend ventilation and a mask for protection from dust and debris produced when sanding. Also available are all the tools you need to make repairs to your hardwood floor before finishing the surface with stain, varnish or urethane.

It will likely be your last big bash of the summer, so don’t let Labor Day catch you off guard. Sully’s has all the tools and equipment you need to make this your biggest season-ending party ever.

The most common choice for a Labor Day celebration is a cook-out, so be sure your grill is up to the task. You’ve probably been grilling out all summer, so check your propane tank and connections to be sure your grill is safe and ready to go.

Are you anticipating a big crowd? If your grill is looking a little too small, consider a larger grill option that provides more grill space for those burgers and chicken breasts. Sully’s has 2’ x 5’ propane or charcoal grills available for rent, as well as food carriers that make serving easier. Consider also options for propane burners, steamers and deep fryers to provide your guests with some different food options.

You only get one chance to throw a memorable Labor Day party, so don’t risk your guests being uncomfortable. Sully’s large party tents protect your guests from hot sun or rain, assuring that the festivities can continue even if the weather doesn’t cooperate. Seating is never a problem when you rely on Sully’s—check out options for rectangle or round tables and chairs enough for everyone.

Even for those smaller gatherings, Sully’s can make it easy to entertain. Find what you need, from concession machines to games to unique lighting. Make it fun and relaxing with help from Sully’s Party Rental.

Summer tends to be prime time for tackling home improvement projects that have been put off throughout the year. Warm, sunny days and some vacation time may provide opportunity and motivation. Obviously warmer weather is best for outdoor projects, but even indoor projects seem to get more attention as the weather warms.

Among the top home improvement projects pursued as Ohio enters the summer months are exterior painting and kitchen remodeling, and there are good reasons for this.

Exterior painting

Painting your house is a big project, but mild summer weather and the long stretches of daylight make it more manageable and more pleasant. Tackle it yourself rather than hiring a professional and you can save a lot of money.

Kitchen remodeling

It may be interior work, but the dust that is stirred up from demolition and construction is much easier ventilated when you can open windows. Consider also how often you grill out in the summer. A kitchen under construction is not as inconvenient when you can use your grill for family meals.

At Sully’s, we aim to make these projects possible by offering rental of most of the tools you may need. For house painting, we carry pressure washers, paint sprayers, ladders and a full range of scaffolding supplies to help you safely access those hard-to-reach places. Work like a pro at a fraction of the cost.

Your kitchen remodel may be a few small changes or a complete rebuild of cabinets and storage, but having the right tools will make any project easier. At Sully’s you can find saws, drills, hardwood floor sanders and palm sanders, and floor tile removers. Remove wallpaper with a steamer or cut tile with a diamond blade tile saw. We have you covered no matter how extensive your remodel

Completing any summer project is easier with tools rented from Sully’s Tool Rental. Call today.

Environmental responsibility – it’s become prominent in nearly everything we do. Entertaining even a medium sized group, however, can create a surprising amount of trash.

From small to large groups, whether your event is family and friends or a more organized or formal gathering, as the host you want to keep things simple and within budget. Choosing disposable items can be inexpensive and can typically mean more time with guests and less time with prep and clean up.

At Sully’s, our goal is to provide rental options that allow you to enjoy your event, stay on budget and reduce some of that waste. By renting party essentials and décor items, you pay for only what you need—the one-day use of many of the things that will otherwise fill trash bags.

Consider the following options instead of paper or foam plates, plastic utensils, plastic tablecloths, plastic or foam cups, disposable serving trays, and disposable centerpieces:

  • Choose from an array of plates, bowls and fine china in styles that fit any party.

  • We offer a full range of serving platters and bowls, as well as buffet service that makes it easy to feed a large group.

  • Flatware in full place settings as well as knives and serving pieces are available to match casual to formal service

  • We can provide both based and stemmed glassware as well as bar service.

  • Choose linen napkins and tablecloths to complete your party—we do the laundry!

  • Centerpieces are available to fit any theme, including vases and candles.

Boost your sustainable effort even more by considering digital invitations and choosing a caterer that uses locally sourced foods.

At Sully’s, we are pleased to help you reduce your carbon footprint. Call us today for all your party needs.

Growing your own fresh vegetables is both rewarding and a healthy decision for your family. It does involve some work, however, and having the right tools can make this work a little quicker and easier.

If you grow flowers in your yard, you already know that certain basic tools are a must, and you probably keep them handy throughout the summer. You’ll need them for your vegetable garden too. These include:

  • Shovel, preferable a sturdy one with a gripping handle on the end for turning soil over and digging substantial holes for larger plants.

  • Hand Trowel for planting small plants, creating seed trenches and getting into tight spaces that need digging.

  • Hoe with a long handle to break up soil between rows, keep soil loose around plants, and save your back.

  • Pruning Shears, preferably kept sharp for trimming both small and woody branches and keeping flowering bushes and vegetable plants under control.

  • Weed Wacker to keep edges and walkways neat and weeds out of your gardens.

No matter how diligent you are with your gardens, weeds will be an issue, and in a vegetable garden it is crucial to keep them at bay if you are to get the best harvest possible. Anticipate spending time pulling weeds. For the stubborn ones, consider a notched cobra head tool to get under the weed and pull the root.

Building a garden

For vegetables or flowers, building a new garden takes some planning and some additional tools. You will want to first identify a location for your garden and determine a size. For vegetables, the amount of sunlight and the quality of soil are critical for maximizing your harvest. Remove grass from the area or use a weed wacker to trim it as short as possible, then turn it over with a shovel or tiller.

Be sure to get a sturdy wheelbarrow to haul additional soil and compost to fortify your garden and till these additives into the soil to create the perfect soil composition for your garden plans.

At Sully’s Tool Rental, we have what you need to create a garden you can be proud of. For the largest of gardens, we rent 5 and 8 horsepower tillers to work the soil. Sturdy weed eaters also are available for rent to clear your garden area or get an overgrown garden back in shape.

Check us out today for all the tools you need to be a successful gardener.
