5 Questions with…Angela Cruz, Event Specialist A&B Partytime Rentals

What does your typical workday look like?

One of the best things about A&B is that every day is different. Aside from helping customers that walk into the showroom, there’s a lot of time spent on the phone and on data entry. As we transition into our busy season, there’s also a lot of time going back and forth with the warehouse, coordinating details with the other departments, and sometimes even assisting with packing last minute orders.

What are some of your favourite events that you have worked on?

Working on weddings is always fun, especially since so many of the planners and designers we work with are amazingly talented. I also really like working on industry events because those are the events we get invited to!

With industry events, we actually get to see how our product is being used and get to talk to people about what it is we do. A recent example of this was at the Cocktails and Canapes night at the Vancouver Art Gallery. We had a chance to partner with some great Vancouver companies and were able to showcase our new stoneware plates.

Wedding shows like the Hush Wedding Show at Terminal City Club are also fun since it’s an easy way for brides and grooms who are planning their own weddings to ask questions and see examples.

What are some new rental items that you are coveting right now?

I love our new burlap linens! The platinum colour goes well for so many events and the texture adds a little something extra to the table without having to rely so much on décor.

Finish this sentence. They key to a successful event is…

Planning! At any event, something will always go wrong and you’ll need to be able to adapt, but a solid plan is always the best foundation for success.

If you had an unlimited budget to plan the ultimate event of your dreams, what kind of party would you throw?

I’d love to do a large-scale seasonal event like a Halloween Carnival or something for Christmas. I come from a large family and we always go all out for holidays, so it’d be fun to take those celebrations to the next level.
