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 sister 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




What they’re saying

“My wife and I held our outdoor reception in northern Wisconsin and were having a hard time finding a tablescape we were satisfied with. Then we found A La Crate and everything fell into place. Tablecloth rentals are astronomical in price. For almost the same cost we could rent amazing wood tables from A La Crate. I'm so grateful we found them, I honestly don't know what we would have done had we not.”

“When I walked up to the pavilion, I could not believe the transformation — how magical it looked. The items from A La Crate were essential and phenomenal ... Wow, you folks are terrific. It was gorgeous.”

"From your service to your fantastic rental items, you guys are first class! The set up definitely made a positive impact on sales! Our overall sales increased 16%. One area created from A LA CRATE rentals increased 50% and the other area increased by 60%! We got TONS of compliments on how everything looked. We will definitely rent the items again."
