Why You’re Going To Rent A Party Tent For Your Next Backyard Get-Together (And Be Darn Glad You Did!)

You might think party tents are just those cavernous tents used for big wedding receptions and fairs. While larger events like these are definitely our bread and butter, we also rent smaller frame tents and pop-up canopy tents perfect for all kinds of smaller events. If you are planning any kind of backyard get- together, a tent is a great addition.

5 Reasons To Rent A Tent For Your Backyard Party:

  1. Shelter from the rain. If it rains the day of your event, you have two choices: 1) Cram everyone into your living room or 2) Cancel. Ah, but if you rented a tent you could go ahead and have everyone over. Renting a tent is like buying insurance for your party. Whether the weather cooperates or not, you’re ready.

  2. Shelter from the sun. Let’s say you luck out and have a perfect, sunny day for your event. That’s great, but sitting in the sun can get uncomfortable really quickly. Your guests will end up in your house jSust to get out of the sun. A tent provides welcome relief from the harsh rays of the sun. If you’re planning a summer event, rent a pedestal fan or two to keep air circulating under the tent.

  3. Keeps food covered. A tent helps keep birds and flying insects from dropping in on your food. It’s also helpful to keep your cooler and perishables in the shade. Although you can’t put your grill under a tent, you can position it a few feet away outside the tent. It’s not like you have to stand over it constantly anyway.

  4. Ambiance. A tent creates a unique and appealing ambiance, one which can be easily enhanced even more with the addition of lighting and decorations. Just putting a string of those small, white holiday lights around the frame of a tent creates a festive glow. Candles on tables is another great way to create an ambiance under your tent.

  5. Tents keep your party intact. A tent provides a focal point for your party or event. Instead of people splitting off into different groups and scattering all over your yard, a tent encourages your guests to stay together in one spot.
