Many people equate parties to be held at home to kid’s birthday parties. A dozen children show up, they run around for a couple of hours, eat some ice cream and go home. There are more parties to throw than just birthday parties, although they are important, but so are weddings, a retirement party and even an anniversary party just for the two of you. Getting a party rental tent can make any occasion special. When you decide to rent a party tent, there are a few things that need careful consideration.
There are three basic issues to consider:
- The set up location
The size of the tent is usually based on two things; the number of people in attendance and the type of event. Events such as family reunions or weddings have to be carefully planned out, there must be plenty of space for the guests to feel comfortable in, but there also has to be consideration given to tables and chairs that will be required for dining. There actually are web sites that have specific layouts for affairs; these sites can give you a good idea of the tent size based on function and attendance.
Most of the party rental tents are rigid frame; this makes it ideal if power cables have to be suspended for lighting or sound systems. The rigid frame tent is usually set up by the company you decide to rent it from, depending on the size; they may erect the tent the day before the party.
Once you have the size of tent and the construction under control, the next consideration is the location. If the party is small and intimate, the tent can probably be set up on the patio quite neatly, however, a larger affair will probably take a large area of grass. Under these circumstances it is advisable to rent a tent that has a floor. The floor will not be made from the same canvas material as the walls; it will be laid up from a number of pieces of plywood or similar material.
No doubt you will have a budget to consider. By this time you will know the size and optional equipment; get on the phone and start calling around to determine who has the best offer.
