How does this work?
Whether you’re looking to rent individual items or you require tailored styling from top to bottom, we’ll customize your wedding/event design.
- Choose which package you want – DIY Décor, Day-of-Decor Set-up & Take Down Services, A la Carte Decor or a Full Decor package.
- Contact us via email, contact form or phone and tell us what you’d like and when you need it. *All packages except DIY Decor require a consultation.
- After we receive your deposit, we’ll get to work reserving /designing decor for your event. All orders/packages require a 50% deposit payment at time of booking to reserve services and rentals for your date. Once your items and/or services are selected, a rental agreement will be emailed to you.
Is there a minimum order amount?
Yes. We ask for a minimum on all rental orders for DIY Décor Rentals when renting items from Blushing Pear Vintage Rentals. Contact us for details.
Full Décor packages include consultation, design plan, site walk-through, custom wedding linens, draping, custom backdrop, professional signage and stationery, flowers, cake/desserts, chair/table rentals, full set up and tear down for ceremony and reception, delivery, and access to our entire inventory.
Day of Décor package includes consultation, decor plan, site walk-through (Kelowna venues only; venues outside Kelowna require a site visit fee), option to rent our items, and full set up and tear down for ceremony and reception.
Do you deliver and are there delivery charges?
Yes, we provide local round-trip delivery for $50.00 for venues in Kelowna, West Kelowna and Lake Country. Out of town deliveries (Vernon/Penticton) are extra. Our delivery rates are based on the distance from our location in Kelowna and also cover our expenses for mileage, travel time, and loading and unloading.
Can I pick-up items myself?
No. We find it easier to deliver our vintage items as we are able to ensure proper transportation and loading and unloading. Because we take full responsibility for moving our vintage items, there is less chance of damage. *Replacement costs will be charged if rental items are missing or damaged upon pick up.
How long is the rental period?
Most items are rented for one day. Depending on item availability, items can be rented for up to 72 hours. We will generally return at the end of your reception, or the following morning to pick up rental items from your venue.
How does payment work?
We require a 50% deposit to book items for your date. Items/services will only be reserved once the deposit is paid, the rental/service agreement is signed and we have your valid credit card on file. The remaining balance is due two weeks prior to your event date. We accept cash, VISA or MasterCard and payments made through e-transfer.
Can I cancel my order?
For rental orders:
- Please be aware that once the rental agreement is signed and your date is scheduled, the pieces you selected are no longer available for others to rent for that date.
- You may cancel and receive a full refund if the cancellation date is over 90 days from your event date.
- You may cancel and receive a partial refund if the cancellation date is between 30 – 90 days from your event date.
- No refund will be issued if the cancellation date is less than 30 days prior to your event date.
- All refunds are subject to a 5% admin fee.
For design services:
We only accept a limited number of Full Decor and Day of Decor clients per calendar year.
- If you cancel 6 months or more before your event date, you’ll receive a full refund.
- Cancellations between 3 – 6 months will receive a partial refund.
- Less than 3 months and no refund will be issued.
- All refunds are subject to a 5% admin fee.
Can I change my order?
Yes! Up to 48 hours prior to your event date, you may order additional items (if available) and/or change your rental order for different items of equal value.
What if there’s something I want but I don’t see it on your inventory list?
Let us know! We go out of our way to provide you with everything you’re dreaming of for your event.
What happens if a rental item accidentally becomes broken or damaged?
We realize normal wear and tear is expected. However, we do require a valid Visa or MasterCard on file in the event of irreparable damage or lost items. Many of our items are vintage and one of a kind, so we ask that you ensure that our items are secure, handled appropriately and protected from inclement weather. In the event there are minor repairs required, we will do our best to clean or fix items ourselves, but if that’s not possible or a piece needs to be replaced, the client will be billed the repair or replacement cost. Luckily, because we have such great clients, this rarely happens!
Will you set everything up?
Blushing Pear rentals will be delivered to a specified location at an arranged time and picked up by Blushing Pear following the event. For DIY Décor Rentals, you do the set-up. For our Day-of-Décor, A la Carte Décor and Full Decor packages we do the set-up.
What’s the difference between DIY Décor Rentals and Day-of-Décor Set-up?
DIY Décor Rentals means you do the styling yourself. You rent our items and we’ll deliver to a pre-arranged location. Furniture and decor will be placed in one location. We’ll return following your event to pick everything up.
For A la Carte and Day-of-Décor and Full Decor Services, we set-up and style everything. We are available to install lights/drapery, arrange florals and set/decorate your reception tables and ceremony space. We’ll return at the end of the night (or the following day) and pick everything up.
What happens if it rains and I’m planning on placing items outside?
Though we are blessed with sunny weather in the Okanagan, bad weather/rain occasionally happens during the wedding season. In this situation, we ask that you agree to either have your items placed inside the venue (space permitting) or a tent can be erected around a lounge area for an additional cost. If your venue does not have a tent available, we have a 10 ft x 10 ft white marquee tent available for rent.
Do you provide full services for weddings?
As a full service décor company, Blushing Pear provides rentals and design services, including ceremony and reception, welcome and dessert tables, and lounge seating. We can also provide table décor and set-up and take-down services for your event. In addition to wedding clients, Blushing Pear works with wedding planners and venue owners and co-ordinates closely with local wedding industry vendors.
Can I include any of my own personal items?
Absolutely! We encourage our clients to incorporate personal and sentimental items whenever and wherever possible. During our consultation, we can make suggestions based upon your theme and hobbies and interests.
Is there a rental contract?
Yes. To protect both parties, a straightforward rental agreement must be signed prior to delivery or pick up of items. A valid credit card is required (in the event of missing or irreparably damaged items, renter agrees to pay for replacement cost of items).
