Let's Make It Epic : A Conversation with Denise Simon

Did you catch us on Loving Living Local??  Well, if you’re not local or you missed it you can definitely check it out here.  The real reason I bring this up is because I was able to share that experience with one of my favorite vendors, Epic Events & Rentals.  I absolutely LOVE this company.  Not familiar?  Let me introduce you!

Epic Events & Rentals is a mother-daughter owned business, specializing in upscale event rentals.  They cater to weddings, private parties, birthday events, anniversary celebrations, corporate meetings, church functions, school events, and more.  Their rentals are top notch and they take pride in helping you put together the perfect event with your vision as a guide.  I love partnering with them because there is no vision of mine that is too big. 

I had the chance to chat with Denise of Epic and get her perspective on events and what she loves about what she does.

Epic Events & Rentals

Bree: What does Epic provide to their clients?

Denise: We provide all your event essential needs including linen, furniture and drapery.  Skies are the limit!  If we don’t have something you are looking for we are always getting new inventory.

Bree: What is your favorite type of event to do?

Denise: I LOVE kid parties! More so because I can create the spirit of a child and make it come to life.  Thinking like a child and creating what they see in their mind truly stretches me creatively.  Plus we have tons of fun child size furniture to offer our little clients.  We also love nontraditional experiences that are outside the box. Weddings, special events, showers, birthday parties, bridal showers and so much more.

Bree: Give me examples of some of your favorite event(s).

Denise: Harambee Ball!  Their theme is challenging each year.  Wakanda was the 2019 theme and it was beautiful.  Being able to bring your interpretation of a live film to a table for all to enjoy was really special.  With a client like Ryan, he gave us the freedom to really get creative.  No one table looked the same, but it all comes together beautifully.

Bree: I love that you are a family business and that you work with your mom Lynette and sister Denette, especially because that is how I got my start.  What is your vision for this business moving forward?

Denise: I love working with my mom and sister in this mother-daughter business.  I like the fact that we are building a family legacy and I get to be creative with the people I love the most.

Bree:  Let’s get personal. Lol. Where is your favorite places to eat in SBC??

Denise: Orlandeax!! Love Dii! Parish Taceaux & Silver Star are also my go to places.

Bree: What do you do for fun?

Denise: Church!  Church is my life.  My parents go to Lake Bethlehem Baptist Church in Shreveport and we pastor First Baptist church in Cullen, LA.
