Tents come in all shapes and sizes and are often the first items to go during this season. Everyone is looking for a big tent this time of year for graduations, weddings, and reunions. Don’t delay in contacting your rental dealer for a tent that’s big enough for your guests to relax out of the sun. There are tents set up by the rental company, or – if you have the help and know-how, you can rent a Do-It-Yourself Canopy that seats as many as 50 guests or more!The second step is to rent tables and chairs. An event is not fully catered unless it comes equipped with table and chairs for guest to sit, eat, and enjoy their time. One of the great positives of working with a rental dealer is the number of options and styles that are available to choose from. Rentals offer you the flexibility to try something new and give your guests a quality experience that matches any occasion. Feel free to mix and match to find an arrangement that best meets your budget and plan for the party.

The next step in the guide is to rent all the catering tools to prepare, setup, and provide food and beverages. Items such as chafers, large propane grills, bars, and extra coolers can all be rented to help provide your guests with hot food and cold drinks at your party.

Lastly, rent entertainment for both adults and children. Moonwalks or bounce houses and games like corn hole or horseshoe are great ways to keep everyone engaged and active throughout the party. You can even take it one step further by nabbing a karaoke machine to really increase the fun.  If you have pool in your backyard, kick things up a notch by renting a slip and slide for everyone to slide into summer with a smile.

Take advantage of the tips described above to successfully cater a large backyard party. Make it easy on yourself, reduce the stress and rent everything you need. Follow this guide and start entertaining guests without any hassle and instead, all the fun.
