October Business of the Month


If you’ve ever had the joy of planning an event you know the stress that can accompany it. When working with Trimmings and Charm for your event planning needs, you can stop stressing and start impressing. They are local, family owned and operated Event Company that makes it their mission to express your personality at any occasion by renting or creating anything you need.

Trimmings and Charm began their rental business in 2013 by marketing themselves through trade shows and a Kiosk Store in the Hutchinson Mall. In June of 2016 they moved into a more permanent location in the Hutchinson Mall – a place filled with amazing displays of their inventory to help you visualize the potential in your event and browse ready-made items.

When the business owners, Ann and Alexis Martinson began planning an event of their own, they noticed there was a need for quality, affordable, chic rentals in the area. The Martinson’s created everything for Alexis’ wedding, including custom paper creations and bouquets, and now they are here to make your event unique as well. From decorating, to consulting, to vintage flare sales and rentals – Trimmings and Charm covers it all. A few of the products and services they offer include:

  • Rentals:
    • Ceiling Décor (lights, fabric, & chandeliers)
    • Banquet Linens
    • Mix & Match China and Flatware for up to 400 people
    • Chalkboards and Easels
    • Centerpiece Collections
    • Unique Accent Pieces
  • Paper Creations:

    • Banners
    • Flowers

    • All available to order custom

Ann and Alexis tell us, “We love making every event unique and seeing the smiles that follow.” Take a trip to the Hutchinson Mall and stroll through the store – you can rent everything you see and more.  Ask about making an order for custom paper bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, head wreaths, or anything else you can imagine to give your event a personal touch from Trimmings and Charm.
