Why You Absolutely Need an Outdoor Event Tent

Whether you are planning a large event, intimate gathering, or a casual neighborhood get together, having a tent is a must. Here’s how and why you should include a tent rental in your budget.

Enjoy peace of mind…

First off, we know how Mother Nature can be fickle. Having shelter will protect guests from bugs, rain, snow (gasp), or the sun’s rays during the warmer months. Having a tent can also help protect your food from the elements.

Customize the flow…

A tent gives you freer rein to curate the type of event experience you’re after. For example, you can create multiple spaces within (i.e. cocktail areas, lounges, dining spaces) to allow for both form and function. Speaking of form, the beauty of tents is that they come in all shapes and sizes, so you don’t have to feel stifled that way. Regardless of the number of guests, there will always be a tent size that can accommodate it.

Make the event your own…

With a tent, you’re in control of the atmosphere. Such a feature will allow you to create any mood you want your event to evoke. For example, certain events call for a separate place for VIP guests to gather and be entertained. A tent can serve this purpose and bring an element of exclusivity to the occasion.

Up the ante with sound, lighting, and other details…

Tents can act as sound barriers, making the sound inside livelier and more controlled within the structure.

Lighting can take your event to the next level, and we offer a few options to shine a light on all your hard work. For example, we offer chandeliers and bistro lighting, to name a few. Creative lighting gives you the flexibility and options to bring your vision to life.

Your guests may not be looking down, but the flooring is an important addition, practically and aesthetically speaking. Depending on the atmosphere you wish to achieve, we have flooring rentals ranging from modular-interlocking to wood to carpeting.
