Whether from high school, college, graduate, or professional school, graduation is one of life’s milestone events that deserves to be celebrated with an unforgettable party.
And with a little planning, creativity, and the right equipment, you can host a great party for your graduate in your own backyard, one that your guests will remember for many years.
Take it Outside Under a Clean Party Tent
Surely nothing says “party” like a beautiful party tent. It’s an invitation for guests to visit and stay a while.
It’s not unusual for guests to have more than one party to attend on a given day during this busy season. If you’ve attended graduation parties for your friends, family members and family, you’ll understand how many of the guests tend to stop by and then move on to the next party. Providing a clean and inviting party tent to shelter your guests from the weather will encourage them to stay longer and enjoy your party.
Party Savvy offers both festive party canopies and sturdy frame tents to protect your guests from the sun and the rain. Party canopies may be picked up at our showroom and installed as a Do-It-Yourself project. Currently we carry party canopies in sizes 16’ x 16’ to seat 30 guests, and 20’ x 20’ to seat 50.
Our commercial white framed tents require our professional installers for obvious safety reasons and can seat up to 300 people.
We can also add festive lighting to extend your graduation party well into the evening hours once dark settles in. And the addition of sidewalls can be helpful in shielding your guests from wind driven rain.
Offer Your Guests Seats and Festive Tabletops
When trying to determine how much seating you need for a graduation party, it’s best to assume you will need 50% of your total guest list if you are hosting a party during the graduation season.
And for those who want to celebrate their Alma Mater, we offer a complete line of table linens in beautiful colors, fabrics, and prints to complement any graduation party theme or décor. Of course white linens always look great and offer a clean backdrop for your own personalized flowers, balloons and other decorations.
To the surprise of many host’s, the additional cost of renting crisp, clean linens is minimal when compared to plastic table coverings and is one way to upscale your graduation party.
Another way to spice up your graduation party is to set up a few linen-covered cocktail tables around your backyard. It’s a professional touch that won’t go unnoticed!
Feeding Your Graduation Party Guests
Young adults tend to come with big appetites so you’ll want to make sure you can quickly satisfy a hungry crowd.
Consider renting a large grill to make cooking a breeze. Fun food machines such as popcorn, cotton candy, sno-cone, hot dog rollers, and frozen drink machines also tend to be a big hit at any graduation party. We can help you with these machines, and the supplies they need.
Graduation Party Beverages Rentals
To be certain a large crowd will go through a lot of cold drinks on a hot summer day.
Our large ice chests, ice tubs, and our new Fill n Chill ice tables will allow you to set out large quantities of cold beverages at one time and avoid constantly refilling smaller containers throughout the party.
We also carry coffeemakers in a variety of sizes to brew and serve.
Outdoor games such as softball, horseshoes, and corn hole are a great way to keep party goers busy & having fun. If you have the space, we have the games to rent.
If you’re hosting a graduation party, we are here to help with all of your event rental needs. Graduation season is just around the corner so contact us today for a quote before this busy season passes! But don’t forget, those lazy, hazy days of summer are also a great time to gather under the tent and celebrate.
