Make Your Party Planning Easier When You Rent a Tent, Linens, Tables, and Chairs From One Company
Are you thinking about planning your next event outside? Are you worried about the weather or how to structure areas for guests to be? You should consider looking at tent rentals, whether it’s for a wedding, graduation or retirement party, or other special event. It’s really the best of both worlds: you can enjoy the fresh air, beautiful views, and provide a good-sized space for your guests to chat, mingle, take pictures, and more, but a tent (such as a sailcloth tent) can add an elegant and rustic framework for the whole affair and help keep guests dry. Tent rentals can also provide some respite from the sun, important if your event is being held during the hot hours of the afternoon. Some tent rental companies may offer linen rentals, table rentals, or chair rentals as well, if you want to make things even simpler for yourself. If you can find a company that offers these rentals in addition to the tent, your backyard party or outdoor event just got much simpler to plan!
Why Should I Try and Get Rental Linens, Tables, and Chairs As Well?
For one thing, renting everything from the same company will save you a lot of time and hassle. It may also save you money in the long run — instead of having to purchase all of these items, clean them, and eventually store them, you can simply give them back at the end of the event. It makes the most sense to get everything from one place — less to keep track of in the long run, given how many other hundreds of details you’re trying to manage, from decorations to invitations, food, and activities!
Additionally, rental linens are going to be high-quality, elegant, and industry-level quality. Linens cover table cloths, table runners, napkins, sashes, and chair covers, which can also add decoration of their own, especially if you opt in for splashes of color. Chair rentals ensure that you’re going to have enough seating for everyone — and that it all matches and is the right height for tables — regardless of whether it’s a small-scale event or a large-scale event. Any event you host is going to need some form of seating.
What’s the Big Deal With the Sailcloth Tents?
Sailcloth tents have become more and more popular for tent rentals in recent years. Many outdoor weddings or more elegant events have featured them. They’re an elegant alternative for an outdoor event, adding a little extra panache and flair!
They’re nautically-inspired, of course, constructed of white, translucent sailcloth. An extra bonus: it’s waterproof and extremely durable! They give a more rustic look, with natural wooden poles, rounded ends, and gorgeous peaks. It’s a unique and lovely appearance that will certainly stand out.
They also give off a romantic air, given the illusion that you’re floating on air. It has clean and crisp lines and the sailcloth itself is so lightweight that it feels like you’re floating under a parachute or even a cloud!
What Should I Keep In Mind With Tent Rentals?
Ideally, as mentioned before you’ll be able to rent everything you need from the same company. Some companies may even throw in fun tent accessories to add a little more glam or sparkle to the whole affair.
Be sure to have your RSVPs firmly in hand before ordering the tent — you don’t want to find out later that your tent isn’t large enough to accommodate everyone! If you’re having a dance floor and also tables for eating, you’ll want to do the measurements carefully to avoid your guests feeling crammed or squished.
Find out what the insurance policies look like as well — will you have to pay extra if your linens get stained with red wine or another tough stain — and if there’s a discount for bulk purchases.
Make your life easier when planning a big event by setting up a tent and sourcing all the big pieces of furniture that you need from one rental company. You’ll definitely thank yourself later!
