Party Planning with Pizzazz Hosting an Outdoor Event
Hosting an outdoor party is an awesome way to celebrate a special occasion. From weddings to sweet sixteen parties to Bat/Bar Mitzvahs, an outdoor celebration allows you to create a fun, memorable occasion where friends and family can convene and celebrate in the open air.
Hosting an outdoor or backyard party may give you some anxiety and fill your mind with worrisome questions like “What if the weather is horrible?,” “Where can we relocate?,” or “How should I decorate?” With the proper planning, however, these fears will fall away. Here are some tips and tricks to keep in mind as you plan your outdoor bash.
Planning an Outdoor Party for the First Time:
- One of the most crucial elements of an outdoor party is the inclusion of a tent. If the weather turns bad and starts to rain, you have an area that guests can still relax in. If the weather is nice, then guests can lounge in the shade of the tent when the sun gets too hot. Tents also provide a great area to set up a “feeding” area for guests, especially for a wedding reception.
- When looking for backyard tent rentals for your outdoor party, look for a rental company that has a lot of experience. The more experience that the workers have, the better off you will be in terms of receiving valuable advice and quality products.
- Not only will you need a tent for an outdoor party, but you will more often than not need to rent chairs, tables and/or linens. Instead of stressing yourself out trying to find all kinds of different companies to rent from, see if the tent company rents out these products. Most rental companies that specialize in tents will generally also have these items available.
Apart from the practical aspects of party planning, decorating is a huge component. To give off an instant “party” vibe, add some LED lights indoors and outside. These lights add a fun element to standard party decor. Try using them to light up your garden, terrace or swimming pool area for some extra party pizazz!
If you really want to wow your guests, consider buying or renting some LED furniture. Yes, that is a thing. When the sun goes down, LED furniture will illuminate your outdoor party in a colorful, unique way.
Planning an outdoor party definitely involves a lot of preparation and effort. But when the actually event kicks off and you see all that hard work come to life, nothing could be more rewarding. Do you have any special tips for planning an outdoor party? Let us know in the comments below!
