Whether it’s a wedding, birthday, homecoming, Thanksgiving, Christmas party, Valentine’s Day, fall festival, baby shower or any other celebratory event, Seymour’s Harvest Party Rentals wants to make sure your event is full of pleasant memories and stress free.

“We try to be different than any other rental company, because I want to treat you like I want to be treated,” said Harvest Party Rentals Co-owner James Hancock. “In everybody’s life they have big events and we want to make sure they are memorable. We like to be a part of every bit of that and have a wonderful experience. Every life has unique points that are celebrated.”

To help ensure events go off without a hitch, Harvest Party Rentals offers a variety of party supplies such as bounce houses, inflatables, tents, dance floors, heaters, linens, glasses, flatware, chairs, tables, popcorn machines, and practically anything else all the way down to concession supplies.

But even with everything Harvest Party Rentals has to offer, they are still adding to their fleet. Most recently they added chocolate fountains to their arsenal.

“My wife and I talk about chocolate strawberries all the time,” Hancock said. “I thought around here that would be a good idea because you can rent the machine and get if for the week. To have your own, to me that’s a whole lot better than going out and buying them because they are fresher. But also, it’s a moment.”

And while strawberries may be first on the list of the many foods people tend to chocolate-ize, other suggestion that have been favorites include bananas, grapes, marshmallows, pineapples, pretzels, cantaloupes, and kiwi.

“You can actually use any kind of fruit,” Hancock added. “It’s really good. You can even get a fruit platter.”

To sweeten the deal, Harvest Party Rentals even includes the chocolate with the rental. One of their specials includes a chocolate fountain with 6 pounds of gourmet SF Signature chocolate for just a $150 rental.

“That’s enough chocolate for about 50 people,” Hancock explained. “It’s nice too because the chocolate fountain makes a nice center piece and serves as a focal point.”

For those who want more, larger sizes are available. And an extra special idea includes chocolate that is either light blue or pink for baby showers.

Hancock said as long as there is a fountain available, customers can pick it up that same day, but does advise to book a rental at least two weeks in advance for busier times of the year such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day.

Offering free set up as well as free delivery for those in the local area, Harvest Party Rentals is sure to make your next event a success.

“We have great people here in Seymour and we are watching children grow up,” Hancock said.” We’ve been here for eight years and they are like family to us. You couldn’t ask for a better place to live and own a business.”
