Tent Rental Size: What Size Tent Should You Rent for Your Party?

What size tent do you need for your party or event?

Many Floridians have relied on party rental equipment to plan for their party guests and make the planning a lot easier. One important factor of many parties is the use of tents and what size they should be.


Let’s take a look at a few factors that you can use to figure out the proper tent rental size for your upcoming celebration or event.


Consider the Available Space for Your Tent

The most obvious thing to consider when calculating tent rental size is the available space for the event. If the space is large enough, you can even have two or more tents if you need to split up any activities or groups. You’ll just want to also keep in mind some of the other factors that we’ll go over below.


Calculate Number of Guests

The next important factor in determining the size of your tent will be the number of guests that you expect to show up. To give an example, if you are using 60-in round tables that seat eight people and have 150 guests, you’ll want approximately 19 tables, with 100 square feet for each one. Similar calculations will be needed for square or rectangular tables.


Don’t Forget About the Buffet

Tent rentals often include a buffet and that must be calculated, too. As a general rule, you’ll need a 10-ft by 10-ft area for each 8-ft buffet table. This will allow room for the tables themselves and the buffet line. The good news is that if you’re using a caterer, he or she will assist you with these calculations to make sure there’s enough room for everyone.


Decide on Other Party Needs

In addition to tent accessories, you might want to include other rental items in your calculations. If you’re planning to have a dance floor, for example, then you may need a larger tent to accommodate that. The same is true if you plan to have a stage, band, or even an area with concessions. In addition to the size of the item itself, you’ll want to add in room for people to be around it.


Work with a Rental Professional

Since party planning takes so much work, why not get help from an expert?  When you rent a tent from a professional event rental company, they will assist you in calculating the proper tent rental size based on your available space, guests, and more. This will help ensure that everything runs smoothly and takes the pressure off of you.
