With the Epiphany or "twelfth night" falling on Saturday, it is safe to say that we can all now bid adieu to the holiday season. Here's hoping that all Los Angeles area parties celebrating Christmas or ringing in the New Year have gone off without a hitch. We're proud to have been able to provide the event rentals for some of them. Of course, we're also hopeful that even though the seasonally mandated festivities have come to an end, our event rentals will continue to be useful to Californians, who have no reason to suffer the same mid-winter malaise as so much of the country. Historically, areas like Santa Monica and Malibu maintain a vigorous demand for event rentals throughout the year. That's partly because of the necessity of bar mitzvahs and bat mitzvahs and partly because winter can be a fine time for a wedding in Southern California. But we also like to think it's because our client base doesn't need a prefabricated excuse to have a celebration. We would even argue that the end of the holiday season isn't a reason for party planning or event rentals to taper off, but rather for them to see a local resurgence. After all, large numbers of people have just recently from colder climates and tense gatherings of extended families. Isn't that a good enough reason to call on us for event rentals and organize a house party or other gathering in order to celebrate the people you choose to spend your time with, in a home that you love?
