If you’re in Durham and want to arrange an impromptu party – there’s no better service for you than American Party Rentals. And no, I’m not talking about the Durham in the United Kingdom. No – I’m talking about the other Durham – the big city of North Carolina.
So let’s imagine a scenario: you just won the lottery. You feel so good – you want to give a party for the whole town to be invited! Of course you’re going to go too American Party Rentals! What better service could you choose? And the best part about their service: they even offer inspiration material on how to organize your party.
The only thing you need now to make your party a success: money. Of course, APR don’t offer over-the-top prices for the rental services they have available. However, at the same time, they’re also not one of those cheap rental company that just gives you a ton stuff and then leaves you to it. They make sure that the end user actually knows how to use their American party rentals. And judging from their reviews, their descriptions, and the about section on their website – they actually care about the customers. And this probably stems from one key factor:
They’re a family business. Started in the quite eventful (on a world scale) year of 1989, the company was founded on the strong family principles that Pete and Judy Daymont had. But also: on Pete’s over 10 years’ experience in the rental business. The two started their own micro revolution against the fact that most companies that offered things for rent for parties were far from serious businesses. They even mention that the sets of wine glasses these companies had encompassed 5 total makes – totally unaesthetic.
So, if we haven’t yet made you decide on American Party Rentals for your party providers, here are a few of the types of party supplies they have:
Types of American Party Rentals
To give you a glimpse of just how extensive the American Party Rentals catalogue is, we’re here to make a small list of their most requested – and their most rented – party equipment. Mostly, what you will rent depends on the nature of the party that you are going to throw. If you’re a college student looking to organize a graduation party, you might want to ditch the crystal glasses for more unsophisticated ones. At the same time, you may choose basic, black linens instead of embroideries with fancy models. But if you’re having your wedding, you may just want the opposite.
Here are all American party rentals that you can choose from:
Linens Party Rentals
Now’s the time to decide on which type of linen you’re going to want to “accidentally” spill that bottle of wine on. It’s really up to you – if you choose one of the expensive ones, you may not really like it when someone stains them with hard-to-clean stuff.
Stemware & Barware Rentals
You’re wondering what stemware and barware means? Well – basically – glasses. Small glasses, tall glasses, colored glasses, or transparent glasses. Crystal glasses, gold rim glasses, martini glasses, and plastic glasses. Shot glasses, whiskey glasses, whiskey jars (yes, you heard me right). They even have copper mugs – if you’re feeling like a blast-from-the-past night.
It seems like the company has arranged its website so as to satisfy the exact order in which you actually set a table. Next up, you’ve got dinnerware rentals. Or, more commonly known as: the plates and other china things that you usually lay on the table.
Flatware & Serving Utensils Rentals
After you’re done with the chinaware, don’t forget that you will probably also need some tools with which your guests to actually eat. You know – spoons, forks, knives, teaspoons, desert spoons – all that sort of stuff. That’s unless you’re planning on going full paleo on the menu.
Tables & Seating Rentals
Oh! We forgot that for your ideal party you will probably also be needing tables. No, not excel spreadsheets – real tables. And probably also seats. If so, American Party Rentals offers a wide array of stuff that you can sit your guests at. Check out this fancy table setting:

American Party Rentals Reviews
Leigh S. from Carrboro mentions that she and her husband ordered tables and chairs for their wedding and they were distraught when APR didn’t want to add tents to their order, despite having them in the store and the wedding being one week from the order. Leigh also mentions that the linens would have been cheaper to purchase from Amazon.
Fay B. on the other hand, says that she ordered a few tables, chairs, and glasses for her small party at home and that everything went smoothly and it was actually very cheap. We’re glad you had a good time, Fay
