Spring is in full swing, and there's no better way to celebrate the beauty of the season than by throwing a party for your closest friends and family. Of course, hosting an outdoor event of any kind is great for bringing everyone together and creating fond memories. But if you're looking for a few creative ways to use a backyard party tent this spring, we've come up with a few ideas for an unforgettable social gathering. And don't forget: you'll need the perfect tent rentals for your upcoming shindig! Here are just a few themed events you'll definitely want to throw this year:
- An elegant garden tea party
Throw on your fanciest hat and prepare to drink with your pinkies up! There's no better way to spend a sunny Sunday afternoon than in your backyard garden, enjoying a spot of tea and delicious finger sandwiches. Our perfect tent rentals will ensure your antique china and lace table linens will stay dry and safe, even in unpredictable spring weather. Be sure to decorate your tables with crisp place cards, mismatched teacups, and lots of fresh flowers. And for heaven's sake, don't forget the scones and clotted cream! This can be ideal for your monthly ladies-who-lunch event, a birthday, or even a bridal or baby shower.
- A neighborhood potluck picnic
For a new twist on a traditional neighborhood gathering, why not throw a backyard potluck picnic? Rather than have each family bring their own individual baskets, you can have everyone bring a favorite dish to pass. As host, you can provide some of the essentials, like soda pop, chips, or other snacks. Your guests can bring an appetizer, main entree, or dessert for everyone to enjoy. They can even share their family recipe on card stock so that these dishes will be loved for years to come. Be sure to decorate your tables with red gingham tablecloths and high-quality plastic or paper plates to make for easy clean-up. Keep in mind that when serving a meal on round tables, you'll need at least 12 square feet per person; with rectangular tabletops, plan for at least 10 square feet. That way, you'll have plenty of room but can still mix and mingle with ease. You could even screen a classic movie on the exterior of one of our party tents for a sweet ending.
- A retro dance party
Instantly transport your friends and family back to the 1950s with a spring fling dance party! You can even send out vintage-themed invites that instruct your guests to don their finest 50s garb and bring their steady date for a night of stepping and strutting. Hamburger sliders, french fries, and chocolate milkshakes will sure to be crowd-pleasers. And don't forget the punch! You can decorate our perfect tent rentals with streamers and dance the night away to your favorite classic hits. You might even want to use one corner of your tent for a fun photo booth, complete with 1950s props, to capture the fun!
