The beautiful, fall weather makes it the perfect time for outdoor festivities. How can you turn your backyard into your dream location for your party? When you rent a tent, there are many different ways that you can customize it to your personal style and needs.
Do you have an upcoming wedding? School function? Corporate event?
Here are some suggestions to perfect your event with our multiple tent options:
An outdoor wedding is the thing Pinterest boards are made of. Before you get started pinning pictures of flowers and tablecloths, don’t forget about the tent essentials.
Create the perfect setting for your outdoor wedding.
For an outdoor wedding, you need a space where guests can mingle and you can dance the night away. Let the Victorian tent be this backdrop for your beautiful, summer wedding. With its tall, white peaks and exaggerated pitch, this suspension tent has high, spacious ceilings that will bring elegance and grandeur to your event.
If you want to truly make the outdoor scenery a part of your wedding, try the clear frame tent instead.
With transparent walls and ceiling, this tent is perfect for giving your guests a subtle taste of the outdoors. Let the sun shine in during the day, or the stars twinkle at night. (Even better, with the clear frame tent, there’s no chance that a little bit of rainfall will ruin your day!)
Turn your tent into your fairytale wedding.
What’s the key to setting the mood and creating an ambience of warmth and sophistication? Good lighting.
For a truly beautiful sparkle, nothing is more timeless and elegant than a delicate chandelier. But when hung up in a tent outside, this traditional lamp fixture becomes a delightfully whimsical feature that is as eye-catching as it is brightening. But if you’re looking for lighting that’s a little more refined, but just as elegant, consider bistro lighting. Strung throughout the ceiling of your tent, these tiny bulbs will gently illuminate the tables and delight your guests!
When you want to give your dancing feet a rest, give yourself a space to sit that’s just as fun as the dancefloor. And what’s more fitting for a wedding than a romantic sweetheart table? Include this special table among your wedding décor and you and your partner will have the best seat in the house all night long.
And don’t forget about seating for your guests! To give them a space that is as comfortable as it is stylish, consider our selection of wooden garden chairs. Available in black, white, or a natural finish, these wooden chairs will add a rustic elegance to your affair.
Or maybe you’re looking for something a little more pristine? Take a more traditional approach to your wedding décor with our ballroom chairs, available in white, silver, fruitwood or gold.
The next time you need to host a graduation event, team dinner or any other school function, rent a tent to transform your backyard into the coolest party scene. With the right touch, you can turn your backyard into a party scene that will please both the staff, students and the parents.
Make your backyard the sweetest hang-out spot in town.
For a school function that won’t make kids groan with boredom, the canopy tent is the top choice. The vibrant, striped pattern or white is a stand-out point piece – one the kids are sure to love.
Looking for another style tent that’s just as fun, but also a little more sophisticated? Take a look at the sailcloth tent. With its high peaks adorned with small flags, this tent looks like you brought the circus to your very own backyard.
Accessorize Your Tent!
Now that you’ve set the stage for your school function, it’s time to turn up the volume with a few, fun accessories.
Looking to impress the young crowd? LED lighting is a great way to keep the tent lit and bring a bit of color onto the scene. Our LED lights fasten onto the tents’ poles so that you can bring bright color to the whole party.
If you want lighting that brings together mature sophistication and child-like fun, why not give paper lanterns a try? After all, there’s a reason you’ll see paper lanterns all over Pinterest party boards: they’re one of the best options for lighting that’s both whimsical and refined.
To add some life to your tent expertly for a school function, there’s one very important element you don’t want to miss: music. Use one of our DJ tables to play the right tunes and keep the guests having fun!
When there’s a lot of kids at the party, you want to keep the seating arrangement simple. Use our round or rectangular tables (or a mix of both) to give your guests somewhere to sit that won’t get in the way of the dance floor!
Finally, if you’re hosting a school function for children, don’t forget to accommodate the extra small ones. Use some of our special children’s chairs to make sure that every guest has a seat at the party.
Was your last work party unbearably boring? Don’t make the same mistake again. Instead, rent a tent to host an outdoor party that will put a smile on your colleagues’ faces. Also try our extra large Jenga game or Cornhole.
Think about your audience.
When renting a tent, make sure that the frame suits the audience. For example, the colorful canopy tent? While its whimsicality is great for a kids’ party, it may not the best choice for an elegant corporate event.
Instead, when selecting a tent for corporate event, the standard frame tent is the way to go. The classic, white style leaves you plenty of room to get creative with decorations, or you can stick to a simple, clean aesthetic.
Keep it classy and professional.
Colorful, LED lighting may not be the best pick for a professional atmosphere. Instead, to brighten up your corporate event, trying using string lights. These strands of tiny bulbs are a classic: polished, timeless, but with enough power to light up a room!
Want to double up on lighting? For the standard frame tent, par lights are another perfect match. Mounted on the tents’ poles and ceiling, these lights will softly illuminate the party from above while staying up and out of the way!
At a corporate event, there’s one mood you do not want to recreate: the mood of the office! Instead of tables with a rigid seating chart, use a beverage station and food service to let your guests mingle and enjoy the party space.
Moreover, to prevent your corporate event from looking too much like a wedding, here’s a tip: steer clear of the ballroom chairs. Instead, try a mix of barstools to give your event a vibe that’s a little less garden-party and a little more cosmopolitan.
