There are many different ways to plan an outdoor summer party. All of them include essentials like party tent rentals and rental chairs, but in order to make your event special, you need to think outside the box. Put yourself in the shoes of your guests and go beyond party tent rentals to find fun ideas like the following.
Paper Balloon Lanterns
A traditional Chinese art, sky lanterns are made from paper into the shape of a hot air balloon. A candle is suspended by strings so that the hot air fills the balloon. Eventually, it will take flight and give the night sky a beautiful glow.
Nope, not candy, Kandi! If you run with a crowd that likes electronic music and raves, make some bracelets out of beads to spell out clever words, then get ready to dance the night away. Consider outdoor dance floor rentals for this one too.
Giant Finger Painting Canvas
For art lovers out there, set up a huge station outside with paints and a large, unbroken piece of paper. Watch as your guests come together to create something beautiful.
Remember being a kid? Good, do that again in a sandbox. Provide tiny plastic shovels, buckets, and a water source for your friends to build something spectacular.
Kite Building Competition
Nothing heats up an outdoor event like a friendly kite building competition. Provide only the materials necessary and let the teams find the rest in nature.
Hide and Seek Capture the Flag
A combination of two total classics. Each team hides their flag on one side of the outdoor space. The teams then use teamwork to hunt the flags down. Don’t get tagged, though, or you have to go to jail!
Squirt guns, water balloons, and strategically placed refilling stations. Combine this with Hide and Seek the Flag (patent pending) and you have a seriously high stakes party.
High-quality rental companies have a good deal of experience in helping provide everything necessary for a great outdoor summer party. Leave the basic stuff to the professionals so you can have fun and let your imagination run wild.
