We’re just wrapping up from our Oscar de la Renta fashion show in Lake Tahoe this past weekend, presented by Saks Fifth Avenue! Despite the gloomy weather, we had an amazing time and made even more beautiful and amazing memories.

Thanks to your support, we exceeded our expectations in revenue, which will be working to #keeptahoeblue ! We couldn’t have done it without all of you, so thank you so much for your immeasurable support.
Special thanks to Eliza Bolen, our fashion show committee President Barbara Brown, and general manager of @saks SF, Anna Chung.

Season's greetings to you and yours
from the entire Ideas Family! Thank you all for your support during this wild unexpected roller coaster of a year...

We are deeply grateful and truly mesmerized by the strength, fortitude and perseverance of our industry - we readjusted, balanced and juggled a million things - and still continued to create beauty during one of the toughest years most of us will face in our lives.

Cheers to each and every single one of you! Wishing you all the very best in the New Year.

Happy Thanksgiving! This year, more than ever, it's the time of year to be grateful for what we have and for those we love and care for. While we might not be able to celebrate with loved ones and enjoy special moments together at the table over a bountiful feast, we can still share smiles and stories from afar.

The Ideas Events & Rentals family wishes you and yours the most joyous holiday season. We are grateful and thankful for each of you today and always!

It’s takes a lot to transform a rectangular conference room into an outdoor space, but we did just that yesterday at the @stregissf for one of our @salesforce clients for @dreamforce. We even had crickets chirping in the background! Kudos to all the hard working teams this week - especially our amazing @ideaseventsandrentals crew.
