Planning a Thanksgiving party this year? Make things easy on yourself and rent a tent!
Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends, and, of course, food. And if this is your year to host a Thanksgiving party during the holiday season, then you’ll want a tent!
Here are four reasons you should seriously a tent for your Thanksgiving gathering.
4 REASONS YOU NEED A TENT FOR YOUR THANKSGIVING PARTY
Rental tents aren’t only for weddings and special events; they’re also perfect for large gatherings.
1. Impress your guests with a unique décor scheme.
When you decorate the interior of a tent, the possibilities are endless! You can go for a rustic feel with some burlap and twinkle lights, or get creative and transform the space into a chic indoor/outdoor lounge. No matter what your style is, impress your guests with the attention to detail you put into your outdoor tent rental.
Pro Tip: Go the extra mile and rent all the essentials — such as tables and chairs — which can help streamline your preparations and minimize set-up time on the big day. Plus, you won’t have to worry about dragging your own tables outdoors or borrowing outdoor tables from friends.
2. Keep things flexible.
Having a tent rental for your backyard gives you the flexibility to move your party indoors or outdoors, depending on the weather forecast. If it looks like it might rain, no problem! Just roll up the sides of the tent, and voila – instant shelter. And if the sun comes out unexpectedly, you can open up the sides of the tent and let in some fresh fall air.
Pro Tip: If it’s a chilly New England day this Thanksgiving, don’t forget to rent outdoor propane heaters. That way, everyone will stay nice and warm…even outside under the tent!
3. Enjoy time outdoors.
Taking the party outside is a great way to enjoy the cooler temperatures and autumn scenery. Plus, it’s the perfect opportunity to break in that new patio furniture you’ve been eyeing all season long! With an outdoor party tent rental, you can take advantage of being outdoors by serving up some seasonal favorites like apple cider and pumpkin pie.
Pro Tip: Don’t try any new recipes this year! Choose recipes you’re familiar with and that you know will turn out well. (There’s nothing worse than risking disaster by trying to make something complicated for the first time when all your guests are watching — and judging.) Stick to recipes that are tried and true, and you can’t go wrong. And if in doubt, save yourself the trouble and cater!
4. Host as many people as you desire.
Lastly, renting a tent for your Thanksgiving dinner is an excellent idea as it allows you to host as many people as you like, without worrying about limited space. Whether you want to host a small gathering or bring the whole extended family together, renting a tent ensures everyone has a spacious place to gather.
Pro Tip: Keep the little ones entertained (and out from underfoot) by setting up a kids’ table complete with coloring books, crayons, and simple crafts. This way, the adults can enjoy their meals without having to worry about wrangling little ones, and the kids will feel like they’re part of the festivities. That’s what we call a win-win!
We hope this post has reduced some of your stress about hosting the big feast this year. With a little planning with a special events rental, you can pull off a Thanksgiving dinner that will have your guests raving for years to come.
