Party Rental Ideas for Birthdays in December

How to plan the best birthdays in December!

Planning December birthdays has always been a little stressful because the birthday boy or girl can feel as if they’re not getting the attention they deserve. Add to this the fact that we’re still in the middle of a pandemic and you have a recipe for stress to go through the roof. To help alleviate this, we’re compiled a few tactics that you can use to help ensure successful birthdays in December and what type of equipment you should consider renting from a party rental company to give the event a little extra flair.


Quick Tips for Birthdays in December

With holiday decorations everywhere you look during the month of December, it can get difficult to make a pointed effort to separate the holidays from an upcoming birthday. This is especially true as you get closer to each holiday. While there’s no cure for every situation, here are a few quick tips to make things a bit easier:


  • Fuse the two celebrations together but do one at a time.
  • Select a special birthday activity, such as a bounce house.
  • Don’t include any Christmas decorations at the party.
  • Only combine gifts if a single item is especially substantial.
  • Consider throwing the party earlier in the month.


What You Should Rent for the Party

If you want a birthday party during the month of December to stand out, renting a few pieces of equipment is the perfect way to accomplish this. Here are just a few of the most popular items that you may need:


Large Tents

For December birthdays that take place outside, you should definitely consider a tent rental for your guests. This is a great way to keep the party contained and provide a separate entertainment area as needed. If you’re afraid of the weather getting too chilly, there are tent accessories available such as sidewalls and heaters.


Basic Needs

Picking up event rental equipment often begins with the basics. By renting items such as tables, dinner & glassware, and other common party necessities, you’ll make the party look better by being more uniform. Plus, you’ll save a good deal of time trying to find enough of these items for everyone.


Catering Equipment

If you’re planning on having a variety of food at the party, it definitely won’t hurt to rent a few pieces of catering equipment. This will make it easier to serve the food without worrying about collecting catering items from your friends or family.



Like bounce houses, renting concessions will always make December birthdays a lot better. Many people don’t realize that renting popcorn and cotton candy machines are so simple and affordable, but they’re actually an extremely popular item for all types of celebrations.


Dance Floor

Kids and adults love to get their groove on, so if you have the room for a dance floor, add this to your party rental list. They come in different sizes, so you’ll have some leeway. If the space that you’re using is sizable enough, consider picking up two – one for the adults and one for the kids.


Audio/Visual Equipment

Renting audio/visual equipment for the party is a great way to keep everyone entertained. Available items include a projector and screen for movies and a sound system for music.
