Approaching the New Year offers the ideal time for reflection on the previous year’s successes. So, we thought it’d be the perfect opportunity to take a little trip down memory lane and remember the best posts we shared with you in 2014. But rather than picking our favorites (that’s like trying to pick just one kind of our favourite ice creams!), we let you decide. Here’s the list of the most read, new stories on National Event Supply in the past year:
While buying wedding linens direct is quite prevalent in the United States, finding good quality, seamless wedding linens wholesale in Canada can be a more time consuming and difficult task. One of the questions that we often get asked is where to buy wedding linens direct in Canada. Besides National Event Supply (who as you may or may not know have a new line of polyester linens and spandex table covers), we’ve rounded up 4 companies you can purchase wedding linens direct from.
One of the first questions a party rental, event rental, hotel, banquet hall or caterer asks themselves when they begin the process of buying chiavari chairs wholesale is: How much does a chiavari chair cost, and what are the expected prices for different kinds of chiavari chairs? Unfortunately many Canadian companies run into road blocks when they research online as to how much chiavari chairs are really going to cost with few in the industry posting prices online. This article will attempt to answer this important question – just keep in mind that chiavari chair prices vary drastically between the United States and Canada – buying from US companies may look like a better deal but with the exchange rates, duties and shipping – your end cost could be higher than if you’d bought from a Canadian company. As the different types of chiavari chairs have different price points, this article takes a look at what a Canadian company buying from a Canadian event equipment sales supplier can expect in terms of pricing.
Each year, we at National Event Supply work with restaurants around the Greater Toronto area with respect to their restaurant supplies such as porcelain platters, bowls, porcelain dinnerware, flatware and glass stemware.

We like to be as transparent as possible with our customers and because of this, this post lists a few of the companies that have a solid restaurant supply history in the Toronto area.
There are many events especially in Canada that may opt to be outdoors and want the assurance that regardless of the weather, their event can continue as planned. Because of this, tent rentals are vastly popular – especially in climates such as ours that experience different changes in season, weather and temperature. If you’re in the market to purchase tents – whether they be pop up tents or portable fabric structures - knowing the best tent manufacturers to look into can help get a head start on your research and due diligence.
Next to the Chiavari Chair, the most popular event chair for weddings would be Wedding White Folding Chairs. Party and event rental companies, hotels, banquet halls and caterers often start their search off for these chairs asking what different variations of white wedding folding chairs exist and how much do white wedding folding chairs cost? This blog post will detail the range of cost (if buying from a Canadian event equipment supplier) and styles of white wedding folding chairs and the reasons for the cost variations.
More and more over the years National Event Supply has increasingly gained additional customers in the catering / foodservice industry – particularly in the Greater Toronto area with respect to their catering supplies such as porcelain platters & bowls, melamine platters & bowls, porcelain wonton spoons, porcelain tasting spoons, amuse-bouche spoons & amuse-bouche forks. And because so many folks know our thoughts (from this website) on quality products and great service, they often ask us who would we classify as the best catering supply store and competitors that sell catering supplies in the area.
