When you want to have a party or get-together, one of the first things you must decide is where you will hold the event. You likely have an idea of what you are hoping the party will be like – the theme and décor, the vibe, the time of day, how you want it set up. Maybe you even know what you will wear! Before you spend all your time looking at hotel conference rooms, banquet halls, park pavilions, or personal living space – how about you consider a tent rental? Let’s face it – the “normal” spaces are boring and everyone rents them. Perhaps it is time for you to step outside the box and give your guests a more unique experience –without that crazy banquet room carpet.
Deciding to go with a tent rental for your next event means that you can decide on a location anywhere – vacant lots, parking lots, backyards, parks, etc. Find a space big enough for your event and erect your tent. If you are still on the fence about whether a tent rental would be the best idea for your event, here are five events that are made even better by choosing to use a tent!
When you think about outdoor weddings, you likely think of a beautiful nature backdrop to the big day and dancing the night away under the stars with a soft glow of string lights. Then you probably think about how the biggest rain storm could just happen to form and ruin the day you waited your whole life for.
So, what if you could have your cake and eat it too? Meaning – you can still have your outdoor wedding and if Mother Nature wants to throw a fit, let her! That is where a tent rental comes in to play. See, you can have your wedding outdoors, with all the convenience of being indoors.
Tent rentals provide you with walls to protect from the outdoor elements and a dance floor to get down with your wedding party and guests. Decorating can be easy, as a tent is an open canvas – allowing you to set up the layout just as you have always imagined. Problem solved!
Brunch is a wonderful time to get together with friends, family, and colleagues. Especially during the spring time when the weather is warming, the trees are starting to return with a breath of life, and flowers are blooming in shades of the brightest colors. People want to be outdoors. So much so that holding a brunch and blockading everyone in your dining room seems a bit suffocating.
While it is a beautiful time of year, it is also often rainy. You will want to make sure you have some sort of cover for your guests just in case. If you have a large backyard, consider renting a tent to hold your brunch. It is sure to make it a winning experience for everyone involved.
Cocktail parties are fun get-togethers that allow you to avoid the formal sit-down full-dinner type events and lean more toward tapas while your guests sip their adult beverage of choice. These parties involve a lot of mingling. They also tend to involve a lot of music and a little dancing.
You don’t need a fancy hall to have a cocktail party. In fact, that seems a bit boring. You can decorate a tent, giving a soft, warm, slightly-seductive ambience to your cocktail party. Outdoor parties seem to liven the mood. Spills or other accidents – will be much easier to handle outside, rather than inside…especially if your other option was to have the party in your own home!
Networking events also work well in tent rentals. Why? Because you never know how many people are going to attend. Many times, these events are not by reservation or invitation. And, even if they are, colleagues usually invite others who invite others who send an email blast inviting others and, before you know it, you are overloaded. Many people choose to come for the freebies – the food, drinks, and entertainment – while hoping to score at least one new contact.
Choosing a tent for networking events allows your overflow to spill out into the open areas. Tents are customizable and can be as large as your space will allow. If you still need more room, the sides come up, allowing your guests to feel free and able to move.
Kids’ Birthday Parties
Imagine it: A party of 25 six-year-olds, hyped on sugar, running from one end of your house to the other. You will be on edge secretly waiting for the first sound of the crash of one of your precious items – or kids. Combine that with messes, crowded games, and spilled Kool-Aid – and you will be thankful that you are reading this article.
When you have your next kid’s birthday party – rent a tent. Just do it and don’t even think twice. The tent will provide ample space for kids to run. It offers open space for a variety of party games, without having to worry about things getting broken. Forget about having to pin the tail on the donkey – an outdoor party will give you the freedom for such games as:
- Potato sack races
- Three-legged races
- Egg and spoon race
- Apple bobbing
- Treasure dig
And let’s not even mention the high-pitched squeals of those 25 six-year-olds – this sounds so much better when combined with open air instead of four concrete walls. The other parents will thank you.
Choosing a Tent Rental
The good news is that it doesn’t even matter what time of year you decide to party. Tent rentals come in many shapes and sizes – depending on what you are looking for. You have the option for walls, flooring, and climate control. The tent will keep your guests safe from outside elements, while allowing you to relax and enjoy your party worry-free.
