3 Tips To Furnishing Your Summer Event with Rental Furniture

After a long winter, most of us are ready to get outside and enjoy the summer weather. And as the temperatures rise events and get-togethers tend to move from the indoors out for obvious reasons. In this article, we’ll share 3 great tips for creating an outdoor party event that is sure to be a success with the help of Executive Furniture Rentals!


Tip No. 1 – Finalize Your Necessities

Outdoor parties might make entertaining a little easier however the same considerations apply when planning an outdoor or indoor party. Some obvious factors include finalizing food and beverages, tablescape (including centerpieces, cutlery, tableware, and napkins), seating, music, and more depending on your event.


Tip No. 2 – Consider Transitions From Day to Night

Your summer event requires just the right atmosphere to welcome and set the tone for your guests. During the day, you’ll need to provide various areas of shade, especially if the weather is hot. You can achieve this by utilizing the trees in your area, umbrellas, a canopy, a gazebo, a tent, and more! There are so many variations and temporary solutions that offer your guests this comfort while allowing for a smooth transition from day to evening. Plan to have adequate lighting by using candles, lanterns, strings of lights, and tiki torches. You can also use solar-powered ones for efficient accessibility. These low-light options allow for a beautiful ambiance into the evening. And lastly, consider the area and whether it would attract insects at night. If so, you’ll need to consider specific options like citronella candles, and special lighting to ward away insects and keep your guests comfortable. 


Tip No. 3 – Formulate a Seating Plan

Your guests will need adequate seating to enjoy the event. Create conversational areas around outdoor sectionals and patio sets, bistro sets, and more! For example, you can do this strategically by placing small bistro sets close to your bar or bar cart for guests to land and converse. These smaller focal points or conversational areas allow the opportunity for guests to sit, mingle, stay longer, and enjoy themselves comfortably.
