We’re thrilled to be featuring Spokane Farm Tables today! They’re here to make all your rustic wedding dreams come true and what’s even better is that it’s all local craftsmanship. We’ve asked them to tell us more about how their business got started and what makes their tables and benches so unique:
Tell us a little about your business and why you started Spokane Farm Tables.
Spokane Farm Tables is a local family business. Diana is a wedding & event planner for Agape Events, and after seeing the huge need for wood farm tables in Spokane her husband Rion decided to build them! They are a happy couple raising their young two daughters, and spending the summer months planning weddings and providing amazing rental tables and benches.
What events do farm tables/benches work well for?
The benches alone create a rustic, backyard, casual feel when used for ceremony seating. The tables are similar to a picnic table, so work wonderful when family-style seating is desired. The farm tables and benches are a fun way to create stylish seating, they are an alternative to regular-old round tables! The tables look wonderful on grass, in a barn, lakeside, and even in a garden setting.
What are some unique ways a bride might use farm tables/benches?
The tables can be rented with benches, as a set, for seating at a reception. But they are also serve as specialty tables: dessert table, buffet tables, guest book table, DJ table, and even put together to make a long unique head table. Also, think about mixing our tables with any other rental chair for a classy and rustic look.
Any ideas on how a bride might decorate farm tables/benches for her big day. How can she make that look her own?
The tables are stained a beautiful dark walnut color, any theme works well. Homemade runners have been very popular on them. Also burlap, lace, colorful floral, glass, candles, metallic, and even vintage books all are fun center pieces for the farm tables. To make the seating work specifically for your location, think about putting tables together end to end or making L shapes.
What are the rental costs for farm tables/benches?
Benches are only $12 each, very affordable for ceremony seating! Tables rent for $60 each and we give you a little discount when renting the table with benches (called a set) for $75. There is also a delivery fee – based on distance – which includes set up and placement of the tables.
Anything else you’d like to include?
We are working on building an arch to match our benches for a special rustic ceremony backdrop. This arch will only be available with the rental of tables and benches, it will be exclusive to Spokane Farm Table clients. Keep an eye on our website for pictures as the construction is completed!
