The Ultimate Guide to Outdoor Summer Party Rentals

How to plan and rent what you need for a summer party.

If you’re planning to have a party over the summer, we’d suggest that you host it outdoors. Of course, purchasing all of the items that you’ll need for the event is a big waste of time and money. Instead, you should rent as many of the items as possible.

You might not realize that there are many different types of fun summer party rentals available. Here are some of the things that you’ll be able to rent for your event:

Tents and Tent Accessories 

The first thing you should consider renting for your summer celebration is a tent. This will help protect your guests from Florida’s very hot sun. This will also give them a bit of privacy and a sense of enclosure.

If you want an even more contained environment, then you may want to consider adding some sidewalls and maybe even a door. Self-contained parties are definitely easier to control and clean up afterwards.

Coolboxes and Pedestal/Tent Fans

Tents are great at protecting guests from the sun, but sometimes it’s just not enough. If you want added comfort, you can rent several pedestal and/or tent fans. If it’s especially hot, you might also want to rent a few coolboxes, which are basically portable air conditioning units.

Or you can pick up a portable Big Ass fan. Yes, that’s actually what it’s called, and it’s very powerful. All of these items will keep your guests cool and comfortable during your event.


Dance Floor and Sound System

Your list of outdoor summer fun party rentals won’t be complete without a dance floor and sound system. After all, people love to get jiggy with it (it’s okay to quote Will Smith again, right?) Dance floors come in a few different shapes and sizes.


You might even want to give the dance floor its own tent. You should also rent a sound system that’s compatible with a smartphone so that you can easily create your own playlist.


Matching Tables and Chairs 

Renting tables and chairs for your event is simply the smart thing to do because it costs a lot less than purchasing them. Plus, you can match the design and colors. Guests might not realize this is important, but they will subconsciously enjoy the surroundings a lot more if everything matches.


Tables and chairs can be rented for all types of budgets, so be sure to check them out. This is a lot more convenient than purchasing them or getting friends and family members to bring some over.


Glassware, Flatware, and Linens

Since glassware, flatware, and linens are such small items, many people don’t even think about renting them. But the truth is that purchasing these items can add up very quickly. What’s even better is that you can match them up with the tables and chairs you’ve rented. Instead of spending several hundred or even thousands of dollars on purchasing all of these things, contact your favorite party rental company to get a list of rental choices.


Catering and Bar Equipment

Your long list of fun summer party rentals should definitely include catering and bar equipment. There are several different types of catering equipment available, such as chafing dishes, drink dispensers, carving stations, coffee makers, serving utensils, thermal food boxes, etc. You can also rent a skirted or foldable bar, in addition to party tables for drinks, whiskey barrels, and ice coolers.


Concession Stands and Supplies

Another type of item that you don’t want to pass up for a summer outdoor event is a concession stand or two. There are several different types available, including ones that dispense popcorn, cotton candy, and snow cones. Other summer favorites include hot dog rotisseries, pretzel warmers, and nacho cheese warmers.


You can also purchase any supplies that you need, such as popcorn packets, popcorn bags, cotton candy cones, sugar, etc. This is a wonderful way to keep guests happy during your event.
