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.

  • Pink and White Frame Tent

    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.

    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.

 

 

  • Pole mounted Fan

    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.

These are just a few ideas to help you when planning your summer event. Contact Indestructo Party Rental at 847-375-8510 to help you to choose the tent style and equipment that fits your vision.

Planning A Winter Event

We are excited to launch the Indestructo Party Rental Blog. Since the Chicago cold is here to stay, the topic for our first Blog is about Planning a Winter Event. Chicago winters can be a challenge for an outdoor event. If you are considering an event that needs more room than your home or facility can handle, don’t worry about the weather. Consider using a winter tent. Here are some ideas to keep the winter wonderland outside while keeping your guests warm and cozy inside your tent.

  • Winter tents need quality sidewalls that are properly secured at the top and the bottom. This will prevent cold air from blowing in and the heat from seeping out. It is necessary to keep the tent at 35 degrees or warmer from the time of installation to the time the tent is taken down.

    A covered walkway with sides to the house, building or parking lot will keep your guest warm and out of the elements as they arrive and depart. Use a tent door instead of leaving openings in the sidewall. Tent doors come in a variety of styles to suit almost any occasion. Pictured is a marquee entrance with double doors leading into the tent.

  • Crank up the heat before the guests arrive. Set the thermostat to regulate the temperature. If they arrive and it is warm, they will forget they are outside. Make sure you have enough fuel to heat your tent. Have a designated person to monitor heat and fuel levels.

  • propane heater units outside the tent

    Propane heater units are the best option to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout a tent. They are placed outside the tent and controlled by an inside mounted thermostat. Hot air is forced into the tent through diffuser vents placed on the ground. The pictures show the heater unit outside the tent and what the vent looks like inside the tent. Patio or mushroom heaters have no blower and only provide a 3’ – 4’ circle of warmth. Since the propane tank is located in the base of the heater they also take up additional space under the tent. Indestructo Party Rental does not recommend these heaters for heating a tent. They are generally used for a small outdoor seating area.

  • Consider a carpeted elevated floor to keep your guests feet off the frozen ground.

    Use warm, soft colored lighting to create a cozy and inviting environment for your guests. They will add magic, mood and light to a dark winter evening. Pictured is the cozy interior of a winter tent for a corporate holiday party.

  • Add a warm beverage bar with coffee, hot cocoa and tea in addition to the usual liquid refreshments to warm up your guests.

  • You may need to consider snow removal prior to the tent installation.

Don’t let the cold dampen your plans for a memorable outdoor winter party. We hope you finds these tips helpful when planning your unique winter event.  Contact Indestructo Party Rental at 847-375-8510 to help you choose the tent and equipment that is right for you.
