Planning an Outdoor Party-Tips for a successful event
Outdoor party or wedding planning can be a considerable challenge. There are many details that must be addressed and if you try to do it all yourself you could find that something has fallen through the cracks.
Peach State Party Rentals can help you with many aspects of planning an outdoor wedding, birthday party, or event.
Tent, table, and chair rentals are a big part of staging an outdoor event, but there are many other things you’ll need to consider and accomplish to make your event a success.
Here are some tips and ideas to help you with planning your event.
Give yourself time--Never commit to a party that you’ll have to pull off at the last minute. Give yourself 30 days, longer if at all possible. A short notice event can turn into a disaster, and while Peach State Party Rentals is available on short notice, planning in advance is always the best approach.
Make a list--Once you commit to planning a party, start a list for everything you might conceivably need or want. WRITE IT DOWN!! When you have put together a comprehensive list, create a chart or spreadsheet and check off items as you get them set up.
Got a Theme?--That might help you choose the type of tent decor, food, or additional items necessary. Think about what is needed to tie your theme to the space you are creating.
Survey the land--Where is your party going to be held, what obstacles might need to be overcome?
When planning an outside event or party, you need to choose a spot that is reasonably elevated and level, especially if you intend to include a dance floor in your rental package. You’ll also want an area that doesn’t get saturated if it decides to rain. Setting up your tent a couple of days in advance to keep the area dry in the event of rain can be a good idea as well.
Give yourself room--Make sure your tent is big enough and that you have the tables and chairs necessary to accommodate your guests.
Make a seating plan and event layout. Nothing is worse than staging and party and not having the proper size tent to house the affair. We can tell you exactly what you are going to need in order to accommodate your guests comfortably.
Serving Food and Drinks?
If you are planning either, make sure to account for the additional space that is needed and get the proper bar and food serving set ups. Plates, tableware, garbage cans…all these must be taken into consideration to ensure that the party is a success.
Other items you might want to consider will be based on the time of year or the time of day you will hold your event.
Temperature control-We can provide heating, fans, and portable air conditioning if required.
Lighting-A night this is a must. If your event is held during the day, you’ll need to provide illumination if the tent has closed sides.
Activities-Depending on they type of party you are having, games or a bounce house for the kids can be a great addition.
