Are you planning a wedding, family reunion, graduation party or milestone birthday party? Whether you are going for a formal or casual look, there are a variety of options to fit your needs. One of the nicest things about a tent event is the number of creative possibilities available. A tent is like a blank slate upon which you can build your own world, creating exactly the atmosphere you desire for your grand celebration.
Here are some ideas when planning a summer tent event.
A tent provides a shaded space so your guests can enjoy dining and dancing in comfort. Depending on the surface, there are various tent types to meet your requirements. A traditional white tent works well for a formal event like a wedding. You might consider using a pink & white tent for a Baby Shower or Sweet Sixteen Party. Blue & White and Red & White Tents are a hit for a kid’s birthday party. Check out the Tent Styles and Colors that Indestructo Party Rental offers.
Does your event extend into the evening hours? Consider lighting both under and outside the tent. Add color with festive paper lanterns or project color onto the tent ceiling or dance floor. Street lamp posts for areas outside the tent that have limited lighting create additional areas for guests to mingle. There are many lighting options available to create excitement. Check our website for the different lighting options available.
There are many options for tables and chairs. High Boy Cocktail Tables are perfect for an area around a portable bar. Umbrella Tables add a festive look with sun protection while your guests enjoy a beautiful day. Kid’s Tables and Chairs are a great option for your smaller guests.
Dress up your tables and chairs with colorful linens to set the mood, express your style or accent the theme of your event. Try layering a shorter tablecloth on a long tablecloth to create elegance and drama. Tie a sash around the tablecloth on a Hi-Boy Cocktail table. Chair sashes and bows add color and elegance to an event.
Keep cold food and beverages cold with utility tubs, ice chests and Chill N Fill Tables. Keep hot food and beverages hot with chafing dishes, coffee makers and carafes. Consider a keg bar or a Marquerita Machine for your adult guests. Treat your smaller guests to a Popcorn or Cotton Candy Machine. There are many options available.
If your tent surface is level, a full tent floor may not be necessary. If your event is on a grassy, wet or uneven surface, and formal enough to call for high heels, consider a full tent floor to provide your guests with a hard surface to walk on. You might also consider a platform for a head table or musicians. In any case, you may need a leveled dance floor to keep your guests safe while dancing the night away.
Keep your guests cool with fans to circulate the air in your tent. They can be pole mounted or free standing. For especially hot weather, portable air conditioning units may be needed. A generator is needed to power the A/C unit, which is located outside the tent. A thermostat inside the tent controls the temperature. Tent sides are needed to keep an air conditioned tent cool.
- Keep bugs at bay by having your site sprayed by an exterminator.
