Whether you are planning your annual corporate barbeque or a family reunion, a dunk tank is a perfect party rental that gets people excited, spurs some friendly competition, and even cools people off!

    Horseshoes : For those who love traditional carnival and event games, consider renting a horseshoes setup. This may be an old-fashioned game, but it appeals to all ages, making it a great game rental that can enhance the fun atmosphere of your summer carnival.

    Kick & Score Soccer : While many people might think that only kids love to kick soccer balls around, parents can have fun by joining the action too. A Kick & Score soccer setup is fun for both children and adults, and is a great way to get people’s blood flowing and the party started.

    Tug-O-War : Stir up some friendly competition at your summer event by playing Tug-O-War. Split your group up into two teams and compete for a prize, or just for the right to call your team the winner!

    Raffles : Drawings and raffles are huge hits at many events, especially at corporate events. Gather some fun and unique prizes and hand out raffle tickets to your guests—or have them win the tickets by participating in some of the previously mentioned games.

    Every event can benefit from table and chair rentals that give guests a place to sit down, eat, and take a break from the dance floor. Optimize your party planning by finding equipment rentals to meet all of the needs of your next event. When searching for table and chair rentals, use the following tips to ensure that you are getting what you want:

    • Know When They Need to Be Set Up
      One of the biggest issues that can happen with party planning is overestimating the amount of time you have to prepare. Consider when your event is going to start and make sure that all of the tables and chairs will be properly set up before your guests arrive. Whether you are filling a tent rental with ample seating, accessorizing your wedding reception, or throwing a company dinner, the tables and chairs need to be set up on time.
    • Order the Right Sizes
      There are a few different factors that you have to consider when choosing a table size. Firstly, think about your venue and how many tables can fit inside. Be sure to account for the number of guests you plan to invite and make a seating chart that works. It is a good idea to order a few extra chair rentals just to be sure that everyone has a place to sit. Whether you are providing food service or simply want everyone to socialize comfortably, tables and chairs are must-have party supplies.
    • Think About Linen Rentals
      Once you know the logistics of the table rentals, think about their decorative possibilities. You can choose table covers, sashes, and skirts that add style to your event set-up. Coordinate the linen colors with the rest of your decorations to bring more style to your party.
