As the nice, warm weather slowly fades into fall, many people are planning their last outdoor shindigs of the year. A laid-back backyard party or tented corporate event, even in late autumn, can be really amazing, as long as you plan right. So if you aim to have your guests out on the dance floor for your next event, check out these expert tips for planning the greatest autumnal outdoor dance party ever.
Tip 1: Prepare For the Weather
Even if the weather forecast says sun for a week before and after the event, it is extremely wise to prepare for your event by covering your outdoor dance floor rental with party rental tents. Things like rental chairs and rental tables can easily be moved in the event of a sudden storm (which is liable to happen), but an entire dance floor isn’t as easily uprooted. Besides preventing your guests from dancing, you also might run into trouble with the dance floor rental company when you try to return a soggy dance floor.
Tip 2: Make It a Focal Point
Location, location, location — this mantra isn’t just for real estate agents. Setting up your dance floor in the middle of the party, with the tables arranged around it, is the best way to ensure that your party and the dancing will get rolling. By having a focal point, it is easier to make announcements, toasts, and hold whatever ceremony you need to.
Tip 3: Consider a Projector
In addition to a DJ, it’s always nice to have some light effects at a dance party, indoors or out. And instead of going the traditional route (although a disco ball never hurt anyone), having a projector casting psychedelic or colorful images onto the dance floor or the tent ceiling adds an extra oomph to the affair. Plus, with the right images and design, you can really create a specific mood for a theme party.
By being prepared, from your outdoor dance floor rentals to your projection of a montage of cute family photos, your dance party is sure to be the celebration everybody needs before the winter.
