Calluna Community | Cocktails with Colorado Party Rentals

Here at Calluna we are always looking for ways to highlight and honor some of the amazing creative partners we get to work with. We feel incredibly fortunate to work with some seriously talented vendors in the industry, and we want to show them off to you in our new Calluna Community Series! We will sit down with some of the fabulous vendors of Colorado and get to know about them, their business and what life is like behind the scenes. Stay tuned for more!

This week for Calluna Community we caught up with Kelly at Colorado Party Rentals!

Cheers! Xo, Calluna

Describe what you do! 

CPR provides rentals, from tents and tabletop items, to lounges, linens, (and more!) for special events of all styles and budgets. We deliver throughout Colorado, and have recently traveled into Wyoming, Idaho, and Nebraska. 2019 saw the opening of a new branch in Sante Fe, New Mexico, as well with a mountain branch on the horizon. On top of assisting with rental needs, our diverse staff, including former wedding planners, sommeliers, and catering leads, can assist with design and event questions to ensure all your bases are covered. Looking for a special service or product? Please don’t hesitate to ask!

What is your idea of a dream project? 

My dream project includes collaboration with innovative and creative vendors and a trusting client who wants to do something outside of the ‘norm’! Destination events couldn’t hurt either!

What has been your favorite wedding that you have worked, or attended? 

I attended a wedding at a private home in Fort Collins owned by the bride’s family, who also owned a number of local nurseries, so the grounds were pristine and inspired! The reception was in a gorgeous tent – and no personalized detail was left untouched. While the wedding was grand, it still felt intimate and rooted – very much focused on family, tradition, and guest experience.

What does your morning routine look like? 

Coffee, dog snuggles, and more coffee!

What are some of your favorite trends that you are seeing? 

Texture, bringing the outside in, offbeat venues, and inclusivity.

What advice would you give to a younger you?

You don’t have to know what you want to be so young! Let yourself explore your passions. Create opportunities to grow and learn.

What makes you excited to go to work in the morning? 

CPR is growing so quickly – expanding our offerings and services so the challenge of constantly bettering our processes is right up my alley! I love any opportunity to be creative and help refine a client’s vision (our expanded lounge offerings are really giving me heart eyes).

What is your favorite cocktail, or what are you drinking tonight? 

A smoky old fashioned, or a glass of Beaujolais!

Describe what you do!

“Rentivist connects the owners of stuff with those who are looking for things to rent for their events, weddings, photo shoots and more! We are a tool for finding rentals and catalouging and displaying rentable collections. My job is to make sure the site does that as well as possible, and that as many people as possible can find out about us.”



What makes you excited to go to work in the morning?

“I love building and creating and helping people. Its why I got into event design. Knowing we are building something that helps both renters and people with rentals to list its really fulfilling. It can be hard to find the perfect rentals. A lot of planners, individuals, florists, vintage rental companies struggle with how to showcase their rentals and, we help to make that easier. Its awesome to be able to do that.”


What makes Rentivist unique?

“We care about design and style, and focus on incorporating that into our brand everywhere we can.”

What would you tell your younger self?

“You are doing everything you’re supposed to be doing to become the you you’re going to love being!”

What are some items you have that are great for weddings/events?

“All of the items are awesome for wedding and events! A few of my favorites are listed here but there are so many awesome items to choose from I could go on and on!”

Collected Rentals & Styling- Copper, geometric, taper candle holders

What are you looking forward to for Rentivists future?
