About

A team of creative can-doers. A warehouse full of stories. RENT reclaimed wood tables. Handcrafted backdrops and bars. Vintage furniture. Custom signage and more. Personalize your next event with A LA CRATE.

We’re the place you go when you need to rent anything from dishes to a harvest table for 10 and you don’t want your event to feel like the same old thing.

Think of A LA CRATE as your friends with cool taste. The ones who find treasures in the darnedest places, are always discovering some new artist or designer and have a great story to tell about each and every item on our overflowing shelves. We’re the friends who get the biggest kick out of sharing our treasures with you—and we’ve got just the thing, no matter what you’re up to. And don’t forget our uncanny ability to take a shelf of odds and ends and turn it into something new: The perfect way to tell your story.

Browse the shelves of our warehouse and you’ll discover an eclectic selection of treasures—things that evoke a time, a place or a way of life. Some were found—everywhere from flea markets, antique shops, Grandma’s attic and thrift stores to eBay and Craigslist. Others were created by artisans committed to function, thoughtful construction and beauty. Some are just fabulous new inventory that we couldn’t resist.

Each tells a story that our clients can use to tell theirs.

We strive to keep our collection boutique (edited + trend forward). If you don’t see something you are looking for please check out our parent company, Event Essentials! They have you covered. And by covered, we mean to say they carry FABULOUS tent rentals and then some! Linens galore, stemware, flatware, flooring, heating… you name it. We’re better together! ee + ALC #bettertogether

A La Crate Rentals has become the boutique rental division of Event Essentials in January of 2021.

    One of a Kind Vintage Rentals

    A La Crate is the perfect vendor to give your event a little extra something special in terms of design. They have a beautifully curated collection of items, and even offer pre-designed sets to make designing your event stress free. They're communicative and professional, with easy to understand invoicing and a great team that makes designing your event super easy. We rented chairs for our micro-weddding dinner, and beautiful dessert platters to showcase our treats. We couldn't be happier with our experience and how lovely these items made our day.

    Great staff, beautiful pieces!

    Staff is fantastic and always willing to help! Overall, an amazing experience!! We rented some wooden tables and chairs to use as a statement piece as our king’s table. Everything was beautiful!

    Highly recommend!

    We rented a curated collection for a lounge seating area at our wedding as well as some mirrored trays to display our desserts on and LOVED them. It really elevated our wedding and we received so many complements the entire evening. Would highly recommend A La Crate to anyone!
