think about buying. 


consider this:


renting a tall cylinder vase can mabe cost $20/vase (an example I do not know how much it is to rent). You have 15 tables that is  = $300


to purchase a vase it cost $30/vase (again just a random number), for 15 tables it is $450


but if you sell those vases online for even half price (I would suggest selling it for more then 50%) then each vase is really $15 saving you $5 per table = you save $75…



Remember rental companies purchase these expensive items and with just about 2 uses (rent outs) I am sure they break even or make their money back. 


So maybe you could purchase. But for linen be sure to make sure they are stain free…it’s kind of hard to ensure that so if you cannot prevent a possible mess then maybe rental is better.
