All About Party Tents

party tents

When you are looking to buy party tents, there are two main types of tents that you can go for: pole and frame tents.

Pole vs. frame tents

A pole tent is designed for use on the grass and ground areas. The tent features one pole at the center that functions as the main support. To support the tent, the tent stakes are driven into the ground, and the ties are attached to them.

Some people love the center pole while others can’t stand it. Those that can’t stand the look of the center pole cover it using flowers, plants, vines, and fabrics.

While the tent is great, its main flaw is that you can’t install it on a hard surface such as concrete. To install it there, you need to create holes through the concrete.

A frame tent is a free standing unit that you can install on any surface. You can install it on asphalt, grass, deck, and concrete surfaces. The unit doesn’t have poles; therefore, you don’t have to worry about how you will decorate it.

While the tent is a great addition to your party, its main flaw is that it’s a little bit expensive to rent. It also requires a lot to install.

Guide to renting party tents

When you are renting the units, you need to consider a number of factors. One of the factors to consider is the size of the unit. The right size to go for depends on the number of people that you will be expecting to attend the event. If you expect a few people, go for a small tent and vice versa.

Another thing to consider is the shape of the tent. There are many shapes that you can go for, with the most common being: round and rectangular. It’s up to you to choose the one that you want. For a great impression, choose a unit that matches the party theme.

Finally, you need to consider the quality of the party tent. As rule of thumb, go for a tent of high quality. The unit will not only look good, but it also will last for a long time without developing issues.


These are some of the things you should know when renting tents from party rentals. When renting the units, also remember to rent tent accessories. This calls for you to also rent sidewalls that you will use to protect your guests in the event of inclement weather.
