Before we get started, maybe you’re wondering why would you want to buy a party tent or commercial tent when winter is already here? But actually, it is possible to have a perfect event outdoors in winter, and what would be better than sitting around a campfire with friends and drinking hot drinks. So we’ll make some useful suggestions one at a time, and you can pick a suitable party tent from Quictent, a brand that focuses on making outdoor products. With this guidance, we hope you will be able to make the perfect choice for your needs.
Size of the tent
This means that you should know what type of party you are hosting and how many guests will be coming. They are the two questions that determine how much space is needed. Ask yourself a series of follow-up questions. Where will the party be held, the street, the backyard? Will the tent be decorated? Will there be music and dancing? Each “event” in your party requires a dedicated space, and it is up to you to decide whether that space is outdoors or indoors under your tent. As for space for each guest, you can refer to the following general rules.
For standing people, the 10 x 20 size can accommodate up to 30 people, making it ideal for small outdoor events. The 20 x 20 party tent can accommodate up to 65 people, whether it’s a birthday party or a wedding. Knowing your party needs ahead of time will allow you to determine how large your tent needs to be and how you will use it.
What is the material of the tent?
The material affects the durability of the whole tent, and you wouldn’t want to choose a disposable tent. This is not only very environmentally unfriendly but also not cost-effective. For longer use, we recommend that you choose a steel frame, which is heavier but can give the tent stability. Steel tubes with anti-rust coating are a better choice as they prevent the frame from rusting in the rain and snow, extending the life of the tent. Especially in winter, you will need a heavy-duty party tent so that it can stand stronger in the snow.
As for the fabric of the top of the tent, I would recommend polyethylene material. This is because polyethylene is the most common material for canopies and other semi-permanent structures because it is both UV resistant and waterproof. And it is thicker than other materials to prevent tearing.
Note that you may need to purchase a fireproof party tent if you need to place a heater inside the tent, for the safety of you and your guests.
Sidewalls are important
No matter what season you’re in, sidewalls are an integral part of the party tent. You can choose from opaque, clear, mesh windows, as well as some with fake windows. Sidewalls not only provide privacy but also protect against the elements and bring comfort to your guests. Mesh sidewalls, on the other hand, can provide good ventilation in the summer while keeping mosquitoes out.
What is your budget
I’m sure by now you have an overall plan in mind, and the last step before you start shopping is to list your budget. Think about these questions: How much are you willing to spend on a party tent? How often will you use it? How much money do you need to spend on decorations? If you just want to throw a party once then renting a tent will be more appropriate. But if you are a party lover then investing in a quality party tent would be a wise choice.
I hope these suggestions above can help you find the tent that best meets your needs and wish you to hold a successful and cozy party.
