Party rentals like a tent, chairs, tables or even entertainment for the kids like a jumping castle, can make an event great fun. Planning for what party rental equipment you might need is at the top of your checklist because the rental places may need a bit of time to deliver or to arrange for you to pick up the items that you need. When planning to have a party, the party rental equipment can be an expensive part of the event. Shopping around for the best prices from the rental places can save you some money. If you know exactly what you wish to rent, then comparing that item in the local stores is fairly easy. If you only have a general idea like just getting party rentals for kids or party rentals for adults, then it will be harder to compare one place to another. Deciding what to have at your party might be based on a theme. With a theme you can focus on one type of item, so you might be looking for party rentals for kids that have to do with clowns.
Party rentals like tents and chairs are not as much fun as bouncy houses but can be just as critical, because if the kids aren't having fun, no one does, and if the adults have no place to sit or to stay out of the sun, they wont stay either. Comparing prices for the chairs and tents is probably not as hard as comparing the kid stuff, but it might be a bit time consuming, so giving yourself plenty of time before the event can help you find, rent and pay for the equipment. The last thing you want is to be unable to rent the things that you need in the time that you have remaining before your party date.
A tip for a tent rental is to make the size of the tent a bit bigger than you need, if you have the room to do so, because if it rains, the water may run off from the top of the tent and can make the edges of the tent soggy. Having guests seated close to the edge might make them uncomfortably damp, really wet or just worried that they will get rained on, so the larger area alleviates the rain-dripping issue altogether. Planning a party when the weather will be dry can help with the rain issue, too.
Party rentals for adults are not x-rated; they can be something like a frozen drink machine to make pina coladas, strawberry daiquiris or margaritas. Some rentals that people first think of for children are fun for adults, too, like the gladiator joust with the big puffy pillow-sticks and even some of the inflatable slides or castles can make adults giggle like kids with the right theme and fun-loving guests. Renting a cotton candy machine or popcorn machine can be a nostalgic way to provide snacks and smiles for the kids at heart adults.
Party rentals can be a great way to enhance a party by adding some fun or entertainment value, or they can be practical like a tent or shelter, chairs and chair covers or tables, but they are a good way to provide for your company in a way that you couldn't without that equipment. With a little advance planning your party can be spectacular from the food that you serve to the bouncy castle that sits in your front yard; your guests will remember your gathering as a fun time with thought about every last detail, including the frozen drink machine.
