Happenings Party Rentals

Take a moment to think about the question, “How do I envision my wedding?” A thorough understanding of your vision is the foundation of wedding planning. Help can always be found with the details, but no one can tell you what you want. Start with what is most important to you. What is the purpose of the celebration? Do you want to intimately share your vows with your loved ones? Do you want to shout, “I’m in LOVE!” for the whole world to hear? The layout, theme, entertainment and guest list of your event are built on these answers.


When it comes to planning an event as important as a wedding, delegation is key. Describe your vision to your friends, family, caterers, event planners and decorators. Help them understand the goals and purpose. Delegating responsibility can ease the work load but investing in the wrong kind of help may alter the vision. Have criteria and test their compatibility, be selective in the recruitment of these suppliers.


Proper wedding-related businesses should ask relevant questions and clarify their importance. As much as you, they want to ensure your needs have been met as promised. They aren’t just asking questions about your plans; they’re getting to know all about you.

Any good business will not make a promise they cannot keep. Solicit friends and neighbours, read the customer testimonials for reviews of these suppliers. Did they deliver on their promise? Was their work satisfactory or barely above par? What are the limits of their service? Don’t make an uninformed decision!


As a representative of the wedding industry in the Georgian Triangle, we here at Happenings Party Rentals do our best to live by these standards. We learn as much as we can from our customers to provide the memorable experience they seek. We educate on the processes of our business so a mutual understanding between the supplier and the client can be met. We only promise what we can deliver, and we’ve had a great time doing it for nearly 30 years. If you need equipment, decor, linen, place settings, or tents for any social gathering - we can help fulfill your purpose. Don't hesitate to check us out! If you’re looking for inspiration, our blog, product catalog and picture gallery online can kick start your research.

Petals in Thyme

Abigail Hitchens CFD, CAFA ~

Specializing in Canadian, Slow Grown, Fairtrade and Rainforest Protection approved flowers, Petals in Thyme’s, Abigail Hitchens CFD, CAFA (proprietor) opened the doors to her rapidly growing event business in 2012. She has completed a total of 3 years floral and floral art education, is a graduate of the Canadian Institute of Floral Design, holds Canadian Academy of Floral Art (CAFA) credentials and she also sits as a member of the Board of Directors for CAFA. She teaches the floral design course at Georgian College. Teaching, learning and sharing knowledge is part of her passion in floristry. Her attention to detail, art and floral training sets her business apart as she can easily move from style to style according to her client's needs.


There are many aspects to a day in the life of Petals in Thyme, being a professional florist. Abigail’s favourite part is when she meets with starry-eyed couples, sitting with them to learn about them - their personalities, favourite flowers or hobbies… About their pets and family members. Every aspect of her clients’ cherished moment and of their lives is important. It is by learning about her clients that she can personalize their designs. “It is what inspires my creativity to create custom pieces, I can then soulfully design based on the interests and personalities of my couples.”


“Weddings are about romance and there is only one chance at getting it visually flawless. I live for and enjoy the challenge that weddings bring to me. Every wedding is different; where some would say they are like snowflakes, I say they are like flowers! No two weddings are ever the same and as such, they inspire my passion and creativity. Flowers are the symbol of new life; quintessentially they imbue the feelings of new life. Let us help you celebrate your new beginnings as a wedded couple by telling your story through the art of flowers.”
