Throw an Unforgettable Memorial Day Party with These Four Essential Items

Throw an Unforgettable Memorial Day Party with These Four Essential Items

Memorial Day is the unofficial start to the summer season, and also one of the first days of the year employees have time off to enjoy with friends, family, and loved ones. This year, instead of going to multiple parties, why not throw one of your own? Tents and Events, a tent rental company near Southampton, has all the essentials needed to throw an unforgettable Memorial Day party. We are a full-service outdoor party rental company that has everything from chairs, to stages, for the complete party package.

Tents and Events has created a handy guide to help those plan the ultimate start of summer bash!

Rent a Tent – The summer heat can be unbearing, so guests will need some shade to cool down. Renting a tent or a canopy will not only shield the sun, but it’s also a good measure for if it rains. Tent rentals are affordable and completely customizable, it’d be foolish not to have one at your party.

Keep the Menu Simple – Our one tip here: anything that can be grilled is perfect. Summer is the season of grilling hot dogs, hamburgers, skewers, chicken, and vegetables. It is also not uncommon that guests offer to bring sides like potato salad, macaroni salad, or dessert. Keep the menu simple and don’t forget hamburger buns and toppings!

Chairs and Tables Are Important – Consider renting a couple of extra tables and chairs if your party is going to be particularly large. People will need somewhere to eat, and older folks will definitely need a spot to sit and relax. Chairs and tables that are wooden, or made of resin are ideal. We do not recommend anything of metal material, unless of course it stays in a shaded area.

Red, White, Blue – Although Memorial Day is a day off from work and the unofficial start of summer, it’s a time to remember those who have passed away fighting for our country. It is only right to theme your party with red, white, and blue decorations. A couple balloons, streamers, American flags, paper products will really give the party a patriotic vibe.

Tents and Events not only offers tent rentals near Holland, but rents table linens, an assortment of chairs, cooking equipment, and so much more! Browse our website today to view everything we have to offer.

How to Host a Flawless Outdoor Wedding Reception (In the Spring!)

We heard the good news – you’re getting married! Congratulations!

We’re sure that getting engaged was fun but now here comes the hard part, planning the wedding reception. Okay, it’s not that hard (especially if you come to us for help here at Tents and Events!), but it can be a ton of work to make sure everything is perfect for you, your new spouse, and, of course, your friends and family.

At Tents and Events, we provide everything from event consultation to tent rental in Warrington, PA, and the surrounding areas. We’re also here to tell you how to host a flawless outdoor wedding reception, especially if yours is in the spring.

  • Allow the master of ceremonies to keep the reception moving – No one likes when an event feels stalled or they don’t know what’s coming next. Choose a master of ceremonies, whether it’s the DJ, bandleader, maid of honor, or best man, to let your guests know when to stand, sit, and go dance. They’ll also announce the toasts and speeches, so you can sit back, relax, and enjoy your night.
  • Find the right ambiance – Depending on what type of wedding reception you want; you’ll have to find the right ambiance. This involves selecting the most appropriate tent rental in Lansdale, PA, and other local areas, as well as the best food, music, and decor for your event. At Tents and Events, we’ll be happy to help you find what would work best for you and the ambiance for your wedding reception.
  • Let Tents and Events keep everyone happy – That’s our job at Tents and Events. We exist for the sole purpose of keeping you and your guests satisfied throughout the day and night of your wedding. We’ll be the first ones to arrive in the morning (to set up the area), and the last ones to leave at night (to provide the clean up). We’ll also keep everyone happy throughout the event, by providing food, assistance, and more.

Three Classic Games You Can Play at Your Child’s Birthday Party

Kids can be pretty difficult to figure out. It seems like most of the time they’re either bored out of their skulls or excited out of their minds. If you’re a parent, then you probably know how exhausting it is trying to entertain them when they’re bored or keep them calm when they’re overly excited. And for some parents, birthday parties can be the WORST. Of course, you want your child to have the best time during their party, but entertaining all of those kids can (let’s be honest) make you want to pull your hair out. Fortunately, as one of the leading outdoor party rental companies in Bucks County, PA, and other local areas, we came up with five fun games you can play at your child’s birthday party:

1. Tug of War – No matter how young or old, everyone has a good time playing tug of war. All you need is a strong rope and a bunch of kids. Split them into two even teams and tell them when to start. Mark a point for the center, and the team that pulls the other one past the center point first wins.

2. Hide and Seek – This is another classic game with minimal supplies needed. In fact, this game has been around since the beginning of time (or at least it seems that way). Make one child the seeker. They’ll close their eyes and count to 100 while the other kids find hiding places. The first one found will be the next seeker and the last one found is the winner.

3. Capture the Flag – This game is perfect for a large group of kids with some competitive spirit. To play: split the children into two teams and give each team a base and a flag. Then, they must try to steal the other team’s flag and bring it back to their own base without getting caught. If they’re in the other team’s territory and they get tagged, they must go to that team’s jail. One of their team members can free them without getting caught themselves. The first team to capture the flag and bring it back to their own base wins.

Those are three classic games to play at your child’s birthday party if you want them to have a fantastic time. Here at Tents & Events, we also provide tent rental in Holland, PA, and the surrounding areas, to protect you from the elements.
