A good party has many elements – dear friends, delicious food and drink, lots of laughter. A GREAT party takes those ingredients and adds that something extra – ambience. Whether the gathering is a wedding, holiday party or a grand opening, setting the stage with high quality tents, tables and chairs, as well as lovely decor, makes a real difference.

I had the pleasure recently of meeting Jim Gutierrez of High Desert Party Rentals and seeing their showroom. The business just celebrated its fourth anniversary and Jim is very excited about the future. Working with his two sons (each of whom have many years of experience in the industry) Jim has built on his 24 years living in the High Desert, being an active part of the community to create a thriving business. High Desert Party Rentals’ reputation is founded on quality and professionalism.

Like many small business owners, Jim and the team have had to make adjustments over the last year or two.  Instead of cutting quality, though, they have worked hard to expand into new markets. When the traditional party business of weddings and other family events dipped, they went after corporate clients, providing the same level of care and panache to grand openings, groundbreaking events and special sales. “Professional economists say we are a couple years away from a recovery,” said Jim. “But because we are exploring other opportunities, we’re optimistic.” When we talked about the health of the High Desert economy, he shared his view that the High Desert “will fare well. People still need homes and its still affordable and spacious, so it is still attractive. We will see an accelerated recovery.” He added that High Desert Party Rentals supports fellow business owners whenever possible. “It is important for our local economy for consumers to shop local.”

When he’s not working, Jim said he just likes to go home and relax with his family. After 24 years in Hesperia, his roots are pretty deep here and they do enjoy events like upcoming Hesperia Days. “Its been going on forever and the Sunday evening fireworks display is practically in my backyard!” Though they lived for a short time in Seattle, Jim and his wife returned to Hesperia for the same reasons they moved here in the first place: the sun, clean air and the environment.
