How to Decorate Your Tent for a Halloween Party

If you’re throwing a Halloween party and you rented a tent, here’s how you can decorate it.

It’s almost October and you know what that means – time to start planning your Halloween party! If you want to make it special, you need to rent a tent and then get it decorated with some spooky items and guest-friendly party rentals. The good news is that we know how to throw a great party, so let’s dive into some decoration tips.


Start with the Right Tent

Tent rentals are popular for all types of parties, but you need to choose the right one depending on the overall layout and location. You need to rent a tent that’s conducive with the type of ground in the outdoor space, for instance. You also need to consider the available space and the number of guests so you can pick a tent that’s the proper size.


Rent Some Tent Accessories to Decorate Your Tent for a Halloween Party 

When you rent a tent, you also have the choice of a few different accessories. These tent accessories include sidewalls for privacy and cooling items like clip-on fans and AC units to help deal with the heat. We’re not sure what the weather report will look like for Halloween quite yet, so be sure to check it out as the date grows near and plan accordingly.


Pick a Halloween Theme

It’s pretty obvious that Halloween can be its own theme, but you might want to do something specific. For instance, maybe you’d like to celebrate scary movies like Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street. Or perhaps you want to go with traditional fare like witches, ghosts, and skeletons. The specific theme of your party will dictate the decorations needed for the tent.


Design a Haunted House

You can go about this two ways. You can either rent a tent and use it for the haunted house as the main attraction or you can have a party in one tent and rent a second one to use for a separate haunted house. This will obviously depend on the available space and how much you’re willing to spend for decorations and such. But, it’ll give you an opportunity to have a cool theme in one area and then traditional decorations in the haunted house.


Rent Basic Party Items

Tables and chairs are regularly rented for big parties. Halloween is no exception. You can even get certain items in Halloween colors (orange and black, of course) if you reserve them early enough. It’s also a good idea to rent other basic items such as dinnerware, flatwarecatering equipment, and anything else you need to make the party a success.


Add Tunes and Dance Floor

If you’re throwing a Halloween party, then you need to have some favorite tunes like “Monster Mash,” “Thriller,” and Werewolves of London.” We’d even suggest a somewhat hard-to-find song called It’s “Alive,” which is another tune in the series by Bobby Boris Pickett. Don’t forget to also rent a dance floor to add to the festivities.


Get Some Spooky Lighting

The right lighting can turn your Halloween bash into an absolute fright fest. You can also add some dry ice in a bucket or tub for a fog-like effect or go all-out and pick up a fogging machine. Just don’t forget to provide enough lighting inside the tent so it isn’t unsafe for any of the guests.
