Gala, Inc.

Last week, SoireeInternNicole and I had the opportunity to visit Gala, Inc.! This event decor company specializes in providing rentals and props to spice up the mood at your event. With their in-house floral designer, I loosely compare them to being the Preston Bailey of DC. Here are some examples of their work from their website:Here are some photos from our visit to their showroom in Rockville, MD:They'll set out a naked table in their Design Center and let you select linens, china, glassware, chairs, and everything else to try out different tablescapes. There are walls of rental items to pull out and play with:
And a multimedia display area to check out local bands:
Every wedding invitation book you could ever want:
Their 'back of the house' is where they make the magic happen. It operates fully as a prop shop where they can paint tables & chairs or build new pieces. Gala will even make you a custom piece if they don't carry it in their stock. The possibilities are endless!
There is an entire wall of ribbon. This must be what heaven is like:There was row after row of lounge furniture, picnic tables, urns, huge lampshades for ceiling suspension, lighting, and anything else you could imagine: A quick example of the extent of pieces they have. They must have at least 50 different styles of floral pedestals:I really enjoyed our visit to Gala, Inc. and recommend you stop by too! We'd be happy to set up an appointment for you in their Design Center if you'd like to play with a tabletop design or select furniture items for your lounge. You may also visit them on your own...Kristi Pichler is the gal to ask for. Their website has more contact info.
