So, you're looking forward to Fall with its beautiful colors and cooler temperatures. It's a great time to plan an outdoor event. But, where do you begin? I'd recommend starting here:

  1. Create a guest list. You can expect that approximately 80% of the people you invite will attend.
  2. Choose a location. It can be your backyard, a park, a bed and breakfast, the home of a friend or family member, or another venue.
  3. Research vendors for tents, other rentalscatering, event planning and entertainment.
  4. Expect the best weather, but plan for the worst. If you plan to have any portion of the event outside, have a backup plan to add another tent or move it indoors in case of rain.
  5. Plan the details:
    1. Lighting
    2. Heating or cooling
    3. Tent layout
    4. Tables and chairs
    5. Linens
    6. Flooring
    7. Restrooms
    8. Power
    9. Enjoy your event.
