If you work in catering, large scale events, or even just have a buffet style restaurant, you probably care about keeping your spaces as sanitary as possible. Especially when serving hundreds to thousands of people, you do not want to take any chance of contamination or infecting guests and patrons. So, that being said, if you have yet to do so already, this McCourt Manufacturing line of products will surely change the whole game for you.

Yes, that's right! At McCourt Manufacturing, we have an extensive collection of the best Sneeze and Food Guards you can imagine. Whether you want something simple or swanky, sophisticated or practical, you can bet that we have anything and everything in between. 

You can look at our full collection here.

 

 

Today we are going to go through some of our personal favorite sanitary guards for food. Again, these are a must have for any large scale event you host. They not only give patrons peace of mind, they also add a level of sophistication and professionalism to any event. 

One of my favorites is the Display Sneeze Guard. Why you might ask? Well, I like how this guard has a flat top made for easy use and display of all the delicious foods you are serving. Not to mention the flat laying top also allows you to use for storage of utensils, condiments, and other extra bits to make the food even tastier. 

Next, the Front Mount Stationary Sneeze Guard, is a classic crowd favorite. This is a particularly good one for those in buffet, not self-serving catering and food service situations. This allows the guest to see the food well, communicate with the server, and still be super hygienic.

 Lastly, I like the Hi-Profile Sneeze Guard, particularly in gold, because it adds some pizzazz and sophistication to any event. The swooping legs add a level of detail and swank that other products cannot compete with. If you are looking for a guard for fancy and high profile events, this is the one to go with for sure.

 

Be certain to check out all of our offerings for all your events. Whether you need guards, chairs, tables, or event storage solutions, we have you covered.

 

 

 

I am nowhere near getting married (read: I am single beyond measure), but I do love seeing all the beautiful wedding ceremonies and receptions on my various social media feeds like Pinterest and Instagram. I just like seeing so many beautiful celebrations of love! If I ever get married, maybe these will serve as some inspiration for me. Who knows?  

I have never been a big fan of really large-scale weddings. I think they are absolutely stunning and have their place, it is more of just a personal preference. I like intimate ceremonies that feel super special and personalized. However, to each their own!

 This Renaissance Opulence Wedding Feast 

You probably do not know this, but I have an MA in Renaissance Art History. Therefore, this wedding is just absolutely up my alley. I cannot imagine a more luxurious display of divine opulence and elegance than this. I love the dried bundles of leaves, fresh fruit, layered fabrics, and glorious glassware. This looks straight out of a Renaissance masterpiece and I am so here for it.

Simplified Elegance 

If you like something a little more on the understated side that just screams sophistication and classic style, then this next wedding is for you. The photo of these glasses is absolutely enough to let you know that this wedding was that black-tie wedding you only see in magazines. I. Love. It. Imagine a whole reception of clean palace settings, long, tapered candles, and chairs like these. Wow.

Vegas, Baby!

Lastly, I love those old school, almost cliché style weddings in Vegas chapels. Give me the cheesiness! However, even with the vibrant neon and velvet everything, I find these to be quite classic weddings with a particularly nostalgic charm I just cannot get enough of. Absolutely love the fun details people tend to add at these sorts of weddings, like pink frilly veils, those classic, very 80s style tiered cakes… and everything in between. This one at Sure Thing Chapel… it is everything!

With spring about to be in full swing and the summer not yet here, we are about to get in that sweet spot of warm, pleasant weather. The heat is not too intense, but it is warm enough to sit outside, grill out, and drink some nice, cold drinks. I love seeing people spend time outside, especially when just having good vibes, listening to music, and hanging out with people they care about. 

For example, I live in an apartment complex that has a really lovely outdoor and pool area. Yesterday was so sunny and warm, there were a slew of friends all hanging at the pool, listening to music, and grilling out. It made my heart smile, and it was simply a great scene to see.

However, the only thing I think that would have made that whole hang out better is if they would have had a great cooler and table for food and drinks. That can get pretty bulky and messy, but if you could have something that is a combined product that would be perfect.

 Surely that doesn’t exist is what you’re thinking to yourself… 

Well, today is your lucky day because something like this does exist, and McCourt Manufacturing sells it.

 

 

 

Let me introduce you to the Chillin’ Products line at McCourt Manufacturing. There are both large and small versions of these tables to fit your needs.

 

You can view them here.

 

The Fill N Chill Table and the Little Chiller table are two products that really shine for outdoor parties, events, and good ol’ fashioned hangouts. They are deep tables with tons of room for ice and work better than a cooler and just like a regular table!

 

 

Both versions are made of a highly durable material that are made for tons of use for years to come, can deal with various weather conditions, and so much more.

 

Make your spring and summer events, barbecues, and parties stand out! Buy a Chillin’ Product today.

 

With summer truly in full swing and June being the month to party, there is not a better time to talk about the Chillin’ products.

McCourt Manufacturing is thrilled to be able to offer our customers such a fantastic line of products for personal and company events that are innovative, practical, and multifaceted. This small line of products packs a big punch, especially for outdoor events, summer bashes, weddings, and corporate shindigs no matter how big or small.

 

 

The Fill N Chill table is one to absolutely not miss on your list of event supplies “must-haves”. The table itself is pretty simple but is so stunningly practical and innovative it is simply genius. Think about an ice chest and a regular folding table. Once you have those images present in your mind, combine them! Yes, seriously.

The table is an ice chest table that is easy to move, clean, and use. Without the hassle of a constantly falling or broken ice chest lid, this is completely open like a table. However, it is deep enough for a sufficient amount of ice to keep drinks perfectly chilled.

This table is made with durable and high-quality materials that rival other competitors and are made to last without compromising quality or price.

If you prefer something slightly smaller, then go for the little sibling, called the Little Chiller, of this incredible Chillin’ product line. Same great quality and design, just a slightly smaller version.

 

 

Think about buying these Chillin’ products for your summer events, and I can guarantee that your parties and events will be smash hits with these fantastic tables.

 

 

Everyone knows the saying “ring by spring,” and though it might be daunting or have a certain connotation to it, there is no denying that many people tend to get engaged in the springtime. Now, I honestly have no feelings or anything of the sorts attached to this as I am nowhere near a state of marriage, let alone engagement, in my life. That being said, I do know people want a good engagement party. 

So, why not utilize the weather and throw a floral, springy engagement party outdoors! Anyone would love a garden engagement party, that much is true. 

I love flowers, I love garden parties, and I love love. Basically an expert in spring engagement parties. Joking, but my mom is an actual expert party planner so this really is a forte of mine. 

For any great garden engagement, you want lots of flowers. Wildflowers are great and do not worry about uniformity. There is something so charming about some freedom in flower arrangements. This example below really just makes me feel giddy for flowers!

 

 

 

I also love how garden parties always have small bites and dainty little desserts. Everything is always on some magnificent tiered platter and just exudes loveliness. Love! This one really just provides tons of inspo for me, and no matter how big or small the party is, you can absolutely do something like this. It feels personal, quaint, and on theme.

 

 

 

For all these beautiful tables filled with flowers and food, we need some chairs. Luckily for you, the Garden Resin Folding Chair is the perfect option for a springtime engagement party. Making those garden fantasies come true!

 

Easy to clean, UV resistant, and comfortable to sit in. The chair fits the theme and definitely is a great investment.

 

 

Lastly, instead of a balloon arch, I would love to see some sort of flower arch that leads to the party or is the main photo attraction. Definitely a way to accentuate the natural world and outdoor setting!

When the sun is shining and summer is in full swing, I cannot think of anything better than a barbecue. The smell of grilled goodness, music blasting, good friends, and good drinks really just is the epitome of summer for me. So, why not use this classic event as a memorable company bbq cookoff! 

This is a fantastic way to boost morale, create teamwork, and make some awesome memories. Let’s turn up the heat and get everyone fired up for success!

 

 

You should choose a spacious, outdoor venue whether that is a rentable space or a local park. Make sure to use quality tables and chairs that can take the heat, lots of wear and tear, and are made for outdoor use. You can find multiple options on our website here. Make sure there is ample space to set up grilling stations and room for all guests to enjoy the festivities. 

Now, to make this a real competition, divide your team into various groups. You can do so based on job roles, departments, or anything else. Encourage them to make creative team names and brainstorm recipes with each other. 

Provide each group with the essentials like the grills, charcoal/propane, utensils, and basic ingredients. Let them know they are responsible for any extras beyond the necessities!

 

 

Get a few people to be the judges and set clear criteria on taste, presentation, creativity, and teamwork.

 Now for entertainment, while the teams are cooking, make sure there is music, lawn games like cornhole, and maybe even a photobooth. Make sure to have plenty of seating too! 

After the competition, let everyone dig in, but also consider giving out various awards beyond the winner. It could be for the most creative recipe and anything in between. Consider company merch, local business gift cards, or just a simple trophy for all the winners.

 

Hosting a company BBQ is a surefire way to build morale, promote a positive work environment, and celebrate the summer! Fire up the grills and unleash your creativity in this friendly competition.

 

 

 

I like warmer weather only when I can be outside a lot. I love to spend time in the parks, eating outside, outdoor concerts, and I love a casual outdoor bar! Anything and everything outdoors in the spring and early summer, I am a huge fan. HUGE!

 

Now, ask me this question again in July and August, and it is totally different unless its at night after the sun has gone down. Relief from the heat for sure. Anyway, people generally love to spend time outside. Maybe you are a restaurant, bar, or concert venue owner looking to expand into the outdoor market. There is definitely money to be made there. Are you looking for seating options that are cool, sleek, durable, and made specifically for outdoor use?

 

I can help with that! The Elle Bar Stool from McCourt Manufacturing is a prime choice for anyone looking to get into the outdoor game. Seriously!

 

 

These are sleek, sophisticated, durable, and adaptable chairs made for outdoor venues of all kinds. Whether you are opening a bar by a pool at a hotel, doing a cool day club, or anything in between, these chairs are definitely for you.

 

Coming in both black and white with small backs for added comfort, these chairs can adapt to nearly anything. These are sure to be crowd pleasers. They are made of a nearly indestructible Polypropylene frame with glass fiber, UV resistant, and 100% recyclable. What more could you ask for! Easy to clean, stack, and keep intact. The Elle Bar Stool is sure to make you swoon and take your business to the next level. Max level elevation!

 

 

Give us a call to talk about pricing and if these chairs suit your needs the best. We are happy to help however we can and point you in the direction for the best chairs, tables, and more for all your needs.

 

As the sun starts shining and the days get longer, there is an undeniable sense of anticipation for the sweetness of summer in the air. Summer is the time for celebrations, gatherings, and making such wonderful memories. Anything feels possible in the summer, and what is a better way to kick off a summer of fun than with a summer gala extravaganza? 

Summer galas transcend party status; they are simply an experience. A swimming combination of elegance, sophistication, and spirited fun. Think about your venue being adorned with twinkling lights, vibrant decorations, and guests dressed in fantastic cocktail attire. They are ready to immerse themselves in the glamour and have one heck of a good time!

 

 

Summer galas are buzzing with excitement, so create a theme that exudes just that. Think about including a champagne wall by the bar area where guests can grab and go flutes of champagne to tip the evening off with a dazzling start. Whether your gala is a fundraiser, corporate event, wedding reception, or another type of social gathering, there is a special sort of community that brings people together in celebration of life and community. 

For the most dazzling of galas, use the McCourt Manufacturing options to bring your venue decorations to level 10. Think about the classic Chiavari Chairs and how much I hype these up. They are simply perfect for a summer gala, and I can never recommend these enough. 

For tables, go for a classic choice like the Legacy Table or a round option with stellar table coverings and decorations. Think fairy lights, flowers, and opulence.

 

 

Keep decorations summery, light, and airy. That is the way to do it. As the evening unfolds, treat your guests to gourmet cuisines, small bites, and signature cocktails. Look to local caterers for these services to support your local economy and build up relationships with local businesses. 

A summer gala is more than an event, and you can make it a night to be talked about for ages.

 Make it the event of the season, do not miss out on the opportunity to host the glamour event of the summer.

 

For my day job, I work in a natural history museum. Not that you asked to know or anything, but I promise this is relevant. At the museum where I work, we host a ton of large events for colleges, private parties, weddings, memorials, and everything in between. The museum has lots of great spaces for rent, and it is a great way to get people into the museum even in an unconventional way.

 

With that being said, you might assume that because of all these events, there are a ton of tables and chairs moving around and all that great jazz. We have an entire events room that operates as our storage closet for all of our event things like tables and chairs.

 

We recently improved our storage closet organization though. Now what could that be? Well, it was none other than the EvenTrux™ Table Trucks.

 

 

The event coordinator at the museum was just beyond thrilled to order these because trust me, anything you can get to make moving tables and chairs easier is a gift from above. Not only was our storage closet a mess without them, it made the event set-up take so much longer.

 

The day she received the EvenTrux™ Table Trucks, we knew that our event setup struggles were over!

 

These table trucks are fantastic for several reasons. They keep everything extremely organized, tables and chairs fit perfectly on them, and the wheels are so smooth that it allows them to glide effortlessly for your event setup.

 

 

When we set up events and do tear down, we know we are no longer having to struggle to put everything back together like a game of Tetris. It allows us to be extremely efficient, put together, and better event hosters! We can offer a much higher quality of service to our clients because we have the table trucks to back us up.

 

If you have been on the fence about getting these table trucks for your business, do not be! These will change the way you do events forever.

No matter what your business does or what industry it is in, networking is one of the most valuable tools at your disposal. Creating networking opportunities both internally and externally can take your business to the next level, whether it is a large company or something smaller. 

Spring has sprung, and now is the time to take advantage of the weather and host a spring networking mixer. Spring brings fresh opportunities, and now we invite you to envision your next corporate event in a setting adorned with elegance and functionality, brought to you by McCourt Manufacturing’s extensive range of tables, chairs, and other hospitality products. 

McCourt Manufacturing understands the importance of creating memorable experiences for your guests. Whether it is a large corporate gala or a more casual networking mixer like this one, our product line ensures that every detail is meticulously curated to reflect your company’s essence and leave a lasting impression.

 

 

 

Once you have a venue nailed down, it’s time to come to us and find the perfect chairs and tables for your event. If your company is smaller, consider renting a room at a restaurant, bar, or other local businesses to support them as well. If this is a larger corporation, look towards more convention center spaces, theatres, and other large-scale event venues. 

The best part of using McCourt Manufacturing products is the ensured quality and through any type of event or movement from venue to venue, our products stay in top shape. 

For a networking mixer, think of https://www.mccourtmfg.com/tables/flip-top-pedestal-table taller tables that allow for movement and less sitting. This should be set up like a party, not a dinner. 

Another addition that is a must-have is an open bar. To cut costs, only offer a select list of beer, wine, and one or two cocktails. Small bites are another aspect to think about, but again, keep it casual. Let it be a moment for people to chat and make new connections rather than feel obligated to stay at one table the entire time. Save that for a gala.

 

 

 

 

Networking events are great for everyone, they let people make new connections while strengthening your own business.

 

When I was in high school, which I am suddenly realizing was a very long time ago, we had a winter formal that always around Valentine’s Day. It was a sweet little event, where everyone wore their little cocktail dresses, and we decorated it like a lovey, dovey winter wonderland. Technically, it was never Valentine’s Day themed, but it was close enough.

So, for me to reminisce on one of the sweeter memories of high school, let us plan a cute Valentine’s Day dance for high schoolers. You can also adapt this to be for a sorority date party, some sort of business event, and all that good jazz.

I always loved being on the planning committees for these dances in high school. I never put my name in the hat for prom queen, but I definitely was the decorating queen. That is a fact.

Any good high school dance is not complete without a good balloon backdrop.

Kids these days are obsessed with taking photos to post on their various social medias. Hey, who can blame them? It is pretty much the world we live in today.

Even though we want a big dance floor at this event, we need to include some tables and chairs for those wanting to take a break, who are not quite as into dancing, and who perhaps just want to rest their feet.

I am once again going to recommend the Chiavari chairs as a staple piece to this event, but I will also say the Gala Resin chairs would be a great option as well. Now for tables, this can be a little more up to you, but I would personally recommend these classic round tables we offer. They are versatile and made for anything and pair well with the chair options I have already stated. These Commercialite tables come in many shapes and sizes, so pick whatever you feel satisfies your event requirements.

You really do not need much when it comes to a high school dance. You provide the basics like tables and chairs, a photo backdrop, a solid dj, and you are absolutely golden.

Make sure to accentuate the pinks and reds and oh-so many hearts for the decorations.
