If you’re planning to host an outdoor celebration, of any size, it’s worth considering whether or not you need to rent a tent. Tents not only give you shelter if Mother Nature should decide to rain, they also provide guests with a cool and comfortable space to get out of the sun. But more than sheer function, tents add a fun and festive element to your party that help set the tone of the celebration right from the start.

Still not sure whether your next party could benefit from having a tent? Take a look at these four benefits!

Less Stress

If you’ve ever hosted an outdoor party before, you know the stress that comes along with checking the weather a few days out. Will it rain or won’t it? Taking this chance with Mother Nature can really cause you to worry, even while the event is going on. By renting a tent in advance, you’re guaranteed some dedicated dry space so guests can gather until the storm passes and so that everyone is not jammed in your home – or worse yet, huddled under some umbrellas and trees!


Rain is just one of the elements from which tents will protect you and your guests. Sitting out in the hot sun can be just as miserable as a cold rain storm. A tent also provides a shaded space, making it much more enjoyable to sit and eat with one another.

Decorations and Lighting

Tents also add ambience! What was once an open field or a bare backyard can be transformed into a magical venue filled with lights and color. The many different styles of tents, combined with accessories like walls, windows and ceiling treatments, give you the ability to create something truly unique. You can also make a tent festive by adding some handing lights and bringing in some plants or flowers to landscape the space.


If the three other benefits we just mentioned weren’t enough to sell you, here’s one more! Tents provide you with privacy. An open, outdoor space can feel vast and spread out, but a tent creates a smaller, defined area to pull guests together. It also gives you a barrier between your party and the outside world. An intimate celebration, like a wedding, could feel awkward with neighbors or passersby looking in. A tent makes the party a bit more personal.
