Outdoor Holiday Parties

Your Guide to Outdoor Holiday Parties

With the holiday season right around the corner, you might be thinking of new and creative ways to get all of your friends and family together for a celebration. If there is one thing that the pandemic has taught us, it’s how to throw a fabulous outdoor bash. Having a party or gathering outside offers you more creative freedom than being contained to the four walls of your living room. Outdoor get-togethers provide a more romantic and picturesque setting for events like dinner parties and weddings. The family-friendly nature of these events makes it easier for those in attendance with children or pets. Even in the coldest, darkest winters, sometimes having a party outdoors is way more fun and exciting (if you have the right setup and equipment). Therefore, why not throw an epic outdoor bash? Here are a few ideas on how to take your holiday celebrations to a whole new level by hosting them outdoors!

Intimate Dinner Parties

Celebrate any occasion this holiday season, from birthday parties to bridal showers, with an intimate outdoor dinner party. Depending on your space, you can keep the focus on the decoration of the dinner tablescape, including candles and plating, or, if you have a larger space get creative with lawn games and a bar. Pop-ups are perfect for intimate outdoor dinner parties because they can protect you and your guests from whatever weather conditions you might face. If the weather is not in your favor, consider multiple or larger tents (and tent walls), allowing you to invite more guests and provide maximum party entertainment. Offer up festive seasonal dinner dishes and cozy blankets to your guests to play up the winter ambiance, and keep them warm with a few patio heaters from a mobile stage rental or tent company.

A Winter Wonderland Wedding

We usually think of “wedding season” somewhere between summer and fall, but having a winter wedding around the holidays is amazing for so many different reasons (one being the cheaper price point). If you are planning a wedding but are not feeling inspired by traditional indoor venues, get creative with a magical outdoor wedding. Snow, rain, or shine, many couples are opting for outdoor winter weddings because of the charming nature aspects and flexibility with guest schedules. A winter wedding allows you to experiment with different decor, styles, and entertainment that stands out from traditional warm-weather weddings. Since weddings tend to be larger events than say, an intimate dinner party, it’s best to find an outdoor wedding tent that will comfortably fit all of your guests. Your selected mobile stage rental company will be able to decipher which outdoor tent is best for you and your guests on your special day- from capacity and fabric to custom branding.

Holiday Staff Parties

Being crammed inside a stuffy office for a staff party isn’t always the most exciting way to celebrate the holidays. Think outside the box this season and organize an outdoor workplace event! Getting outside gives you an awesome opportunity to get creative with different team-building exercises. Host a bonfire or a Christmas-themed potluck, enjoy some holiday-inspired trivia games, and sip on hot toddies while your staff gets to know each other better. Whether you have a small team or need space for a larger crowd- tent rental is the way to go. If you want to spoil your employees, consider hiring a mobile stage rental and some musical talent for a few hours of entertainment and dance the night away on dance floors.
