Tents Aren't Just for Camping Anymore: How to Make Your Outdoor Event Stand Out

With summer just around the corner, the number of outdoor events and parties is going to skyrocket. There may be so many, in fact, that you'll probably be inspired to plan your own! Whether it's a wedding, corporate party, or just a relaxing event for your friends, the great outdoors is calling. But with so many other outdoor events going on, how can you make yours unique and memorable? Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Rent a backyard party tent
You can always choose between purchasing and renting a tent, but if you're only using it three or four times a year, it may be best to rent. Not only are tent rentals an affordable option for any outdoor event, they're a great way to ensure that your party will go on, regardless of weather conditions. Tents can be a welcome relief from the hot sun, and can even be ordered with side panels to block out the wind and rain on cooler days. 

Decorate your space
What are tented events without some cool furniture and decor? If you're planning a relaxing event for this summer, you may want lots of blankets and pillows strewn about to ensure a comfortable, yet cool, get together. Not only that but tents allow you to set up one to two days prior to your event, so you'll have plenty of time to decorate. Draping sheer fabric and string lights from the ceiling of the tent will give your party a warm look, and ensure that it can last through the evening and night!

Keep the seasons in mind
No matter what time of year it is, you want to make sure your tent can keep all of your guests comfortable. Since most weddings occur in June or October, you may be looking into either heating or cooling options. A summer tent may have open sides with simple drapes while an autumn tent might have sturdier side panels and heating fans to keep the chill out. In addition, you may want to provide your guests with hand fans or shawls, depending on the weather. Not only will this keep everyone comfortable, it can add a touch of style to your event.

No matter the occasion, it doesn't take much to take a relaxing event into the great outdoors while keeping it simple and stylish. What are you waiting for? Get planning today!
