Winston Churchill said, "Those who plan do better than those who do not plan, even though they rarely stick to their plan," which is why he ruled England's party-planning committee for many years.

Better Party Rentals stocks the supplies and expertise necessary to enliven celebrations, from tables to chafers. Party hosts can pick up 9-foot market umbrellas and shield eyes from the sun's light ($32), plus tiki torches to warmly glow when the sun goes down ($3.50).

Pump up the party by setting up a dance floor ($1.20/sq. ft.) and fuel dancers' energy with an antique-style cotton-candy machine ($75) or other carnival-style items. The red-carpet runner serves as a means of honoring special guests ($30), and the chrome stanchion and rope ($10.75+) serve as a fence to keep out bow-tie-wearing deer that aren't on the guest list.
