    Standard Party Rentals- San Jose
    901 Cadillac Court
    Milpitas, CA 95035

    Standard Party Rentals San Jose welcomes us for an evening of networking, delicious food from A Catered Affair, and a design challenge for your enjoyment! We look forward to ending 2018 on a high note with you, and we hope the designs will inspire you for your 2019 events! Please be sure to wear closed toe shoes as we will be in a warehouse environment. 

    Each designer will be given a 10'x10' area that they can design in any way they like and you will be given the opportunity to take a look at each section and vote on which vignette is your favorite. All teams will be working with the vast inventory of Standard Party Rentals and the luxurious linens of La Tavola and we can't wait to see what they create!
