“How do I measure my property for the correct tent size?”
If you plan to use a pole tent, it needs to be staked into the ground all around your party area. We need at least 3 feet on all sides of the tents for stakes and ropes. For example, a 20×20 pole tent needs an area of at least 26 feet x 26 feet. If you do not have a grassy area for our pole tents, then you can see our selection of frame tent options for your event.
A frame tent is a free standing structure that does not need to be secured with stakes and does not have center poles. They are more formal and are ideal for placing over a patio, deck, driveway, around the pool or even against the house to add an extra room to your house for those winter parties or holiday gatherings. Of course, you may choose to have a frame tent placed over a grassy area as well.
“How do I decorate tents for a party?”
See our Party Decor page for our linen options, tablecloths, centerpieces, balloons and other items to make your party complete.
“What are sidewalls and when do I really need them?”
Sidewalls are attachments along the sides of the tent used to enclose the tent area and protect against the elements. We carry sidewalls with “cathedral” type windows for privacy, style and to let in the natural light. Sidewalls are also used to enclose a tent for accomodation with a heater, allowing you to host parties in the coldest of temperatures!.
We offer options to reserve sidewalls for your tent if you should need them.
“What if I am not sure what tent or package is best for my party?”
No problem. We can send someone to measure the location of your event and go over all your options with you at no charge.
