Tell us how you ended up in this line of work

During the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, when we have lots of family and friends over for dinner, there is a need for extra tables and seating. So we rent. Most of the time the tables and chairs are not clean, so we spend a lot of time cleaning them. For two years we said we should start a rental business where the tables are clean and sanitized. In June we were making plans for the holidays and rentals came up again. We said, “Let’s do it now and add a decorating service also.” The next day, we applied for a business license, a resale permit and a business loan. God blessed us to get them all and Starlight became a reality.
