What to Rent for a Cinco de Mayo Theme Party
What should you rent for your Cinco de Mayo party?
With Cinco de Mayo just ahead of us, we’re sure you’re planning some huge celebration filled with party favors, Mexican flags, chips, salsa, and maybe even a taco bar and mariachi band. But, decorations and food are just the beginning. You also need to rent plenty of equipment to make sure that your guests are taken care of.
By renting several different types of items instead of purchasing them, you can save a lot of money. Here are some of the items that you should rent for your Cinco de Mayo theme party:
Tents and Accessories
First off, you can start by renting a tent, especially if you’re holding the event outdoors. This is a wonderful way to protect your guests from inclement weather and give them a little bit of privacy. You may also want to rent some tent accessories such as cooling or heating equipment, sidewalls, or maybe even a door if you’d like to get a little fancy.
Tables and Chairs
Chairs can be metal or wooden. Renting allows you to color-match everything, which will make your party look more attractive. Plus, the rental company will set everything up for you!
Dinnerware and Flatware
With so many things to worry about when organizing a Cinco de Mayo theme party, there’s no reason to deal with purchasing dinnerware and flatware. You should definitely rent them instead. Your local party rental company will have plenty of different styles to choose from. All you need to do is tell them how many guests you’re planning to have, and they’ll point you in the right direction.
Since it’s Cinco de Mayo, you can bet that a lot of people will be dancing all day and night. The best way to handle this is by renting a dance floor. This helps designate an area for dancing so that guests will know exactly where to go.
You can even rent one dance floor for adults and a second one for kids. And of course, if you’re going to rent a dance floor, then you’re also going to need…
Listening to music is a big part of Cinco de Mayo. If you want to crank up the tunes, then you’re going to need a great sound system. Instead of lugging one around yourself, rent one from a party company that will travel to your location and get it set up for you. If you’re so inclined, you may also want to rent a projector and screen, and then download a karaoke app.
Cinco de Mayo won’t be complete without a bar of some kind. If possible, make it an open bar. You can rent equipment such as portable bars, whiskey barrels, Fill N’ Chill party tables, and ice chests.
Just keep in mind that people tend to drink a lot during Cinco de Mayo, so make sure that you have a system set up to keep everyone safe. We’d suggest free Uber rides to get people home.
Games and Bounce Houses
If you’re planning to allow kids at your Cinco de Mayo celebration, then you should give them some entertainment. Set up some games and maybe a bounce house or two. There are several giant yard games, including Yardzee, checkers, chess, and Connect Four. Bounce houses are a great way to entertain kids and let them burn off a little extra energy so that they get a good night’s sleep at the end of the event.
