Renting a party tent from reputable party rentals isn’t enough—you need to rent other party tent add ons to make your event comfortable and memorable. Wondering which party tent add ons do you need? Well, there are many of them, with the common ones being:
If you have been researching wedding tents, you must have seen tent liners in bridal magazines. They are floaty, parachute looking linings that are often white or ivory in color.
When you are reading the wedding magazines, most of them make the liners a necessity for every event, but they aren’t. In fact, if you have rented a good quality tent, you don’t need these liners at all.
The only time that you must think about getting these liners is if you are having an official wedding with an elegant theme. And even when getting the tent liners, don’t blow up a ton of money on a custom or premium liner—go for a simple liner, then play around with the lighting effects to give the liner an interesting look.
Your need for tent walls depends on the season you have your outdoor event. If having the event during a hot summer, you can skip the walls as they will make the tent hot, and you are forced to install an air conditioner or fan to keep the guests cool.
On the other hand, if having your event in winter, you need the walls that will keep the cold, wind and other weather elements out.
There are two main types of tent walls you can go for: walls made from the same material as the tent and those made from a piece of fabric. While the fabric walls are exciting to look at, they don’t keep out much of the weather elements, so if you are looking to install them, do it simply for the look—not for the functionality.
Like the liners, your need for the flooring will depend on the type of party you are having. If having a formal event, chances are you will have a carpet, and you can’t put on a carpet on the grass as the grass will look rumpled and stupid. The carpet will also be a tripping hazard.
If having a simple, informal event, you can get away without installing a floor.
If your event requires you to have a floor, ensure the floor matches the theme of your event.
Even if you have your event during the day, you will need the lighting effects to create an inviting look. Thankfully, there are many types of lights you can install in your tent.
One excellent option is the stage lighting that comes with color gels. To get the most from these lights, mount them to the framing structure of the tent.
You can also use Christmas lights, but you need plenty of them to create the look you want.
Don’t like either of these lights? Go for a shower curtain type of lighting system that you can attach to the back of the tent to give your tent an exciting look you are looking for.
You can buy the lights or rent them from the rental company.
If you love entertaining, you should buy the lights as you will use them a couple of times, but if this is the only event you have ever put together, save some money and rent the lights. The beauty with the rented lights is you won’t struggle to put them up as the rental company will help you out.
If you have your event during a hot winter afternoon, it’s common for the air inside the tent to get stuffy and uncomfortable for the guests, and you don’t want this, do you?
To keep the guests happy and satisfied with your event, have an air conditioning system to cool the air. The cool thing is you don’t need to buy the air conditioners—you need to rent them from the event rentals Rockland NY.
If planning to have the air conditioning systems from the get-go, ensure you have the party venue in an area with easy access to power as this will save you a lot of money you would have spent hiring huge generators.
