Planning an outdoor party is not as time consuming or as mind boggling as it once was a decade ago. By turning your attention to renting some essential items, you can save time and resources and instead allot for additional food, entertainment, or theme for the event.
If you are looking to save on costs whilst making sure you still have everything you need for the party, let this quick list of items be your guide.
Regardless of the weather, we sure want to keep our guests, food, band equipment, and outdoor party decor under a sturdy cover. There are different types and sizes of frames or tension tents to choose from. Consider the number of guests, plus the size of the venue. Find a tent that fits as much as it can. Don’t forget to include tent lighting and lighting effects. Also, placing a mat around the perimeter of the tent may come in handy in case rain falls.
- Tables and chairs
Like husband and wife, they complement each other. Most rental shops have them in sets. You can tell them what shape or size of table you want and most likely, there are already chairs that match.
Choosing the color of which linen will suit the tables depends on the party host’s preference.
- Tableware and glassware
Since there’s a wide range of designs to choose from, it is suggested to consider the theme of the party when choosing which tableware and glassware will complement the tables and chairs. The match will create an appealing look to the overall set up and will make dining experience more enjoyable, too. If most guests are coffee drinkers, we may include a coffee service machine on the side. Also, a punch fountain may come in handy.
- Sound system
Whether a live band or a DJ with a playlist is preferred, nothing beats music while dining or dancing. Sometimes a platform or stage may not be needed for as long as the microphones and speakers are working.
Most rental companies nowadays are able to present a portfolio or sort of catalogue for specific items needed for an outdoor party that can be rented out. All we need to do is list our potential preference per category so we can easily find items that will suit our party best. Why not ask the help of a catering company to take care of every detail of your celebration?
