We are right in the middle of the sizzling summer season, so it’s the perfect time to throw an outdoor party. Successful outdoor entertaining can be easy, affordable and you can dazzle guests with an elegant outdoor event they will be sure to enjoy.

Make sure your guests are comfortable. Outdoor events are great fun but sun and heat can become overwhelming. Often people think of a party tent merely as a last minute solution when rain is anticipated. This is true, but the importance of cooling shade is widely underestimated. Most importantly a professionally installed party tent proclaims ‘THIS IS A PARTY!’

Feeding your guests. Cooking out and potluck dinners are affordable options for serving dinner. Hiring a catering company is an efficient way to be able to enjoy your party as a guest! Regardless of which alternative you select, you likely will want to rent tables and chairs, grills, fans and coolers to help with food preparation, serving and seating. Check out our kitchen rentals for even more options.

Give your outdoor party a theme. Food and drinks alone do not complete a great party. There are dozens of themes that can be done simply and elegantly to put your party over the top. You could host a Western themed party and rent a chuck wagon to use as a dinner buffet. Adding red & white checked table cloths and blue and white spatter-ware plates will really set your theme party apart. Game areas with hitching posts and adorned with saddles and tack offer interesting play areas for your guests to enjoy.

###pTropical theme with a thatched hut over your bar area and some palm trees easily decorate your party tent. Offer your guests paper leis and serve a tropical punch for memorable finishing theme accents. Another popular theme is a sleek Nightclub Lounge with unique vinyl modular seating for guests and eye-catching bars to keep the party vibe flowing. All of these décor ideas and many more are available from the party designers at M&M The Special Events Company.

Renting party equipment, tents and supplies makes throwing a party easy and less stressful than borrowing tables and chairs from friends and relatives. All of the equipment is delivered and professionally installed before your event and taken down after the event, making YOUR party a truly SPECIAL EVENT. Everything will look fabulous and you can enjoy the credit for being the host and hostess extraordinaire.
