We recently set up this marquee in a customer’s back garden for a private 21st birthday party. There are a few reasons why hiring a marquee was such a great idea for this event:
Given the social restrictions in public places at the moment, most venues aren’t able to offer the hire of their function rooms, so events such as birthdays simply can’t go ahead in the usual go-to places. Also, even if you did find a venue willing to host your party, is it the right size? Nobody wants a room meant to accommodate 200 people with just 50 people in it, or visa versa, cramming too many people in a small space. With a marquee, you can choose the size to suit both your party and your own back garden! That way you can invite close friends and family to a safe and comfortable environment. Not everybody has the space in their kitchen or front room to host a party, or even if they do then you’re not able to pack the house full because of COVID either, so use that outdoor space!
The invites have gone out, people have accepted the invitation and you have a set date for your party. Now, do you cross your fingers and just hope for a warm, dry day? Well, you could do, but given that this is the north east of England I’m sure you don’t need me to tell you that you just can’t rely on the British weather. By hiring a marquee, they had the best of both worlds; if it rained or was windy then they were covered by a fully waterproof, enclosed marquee with lighting, if it was cold or got colder as the night went on then they had infrared heaters to keep them warm, and even if it was a hot sunny day, they had some sun shade and then the beauty of a heated area later in the night when the temperature dropped.
Everyone is different; people want to express themselves in different ways. A marquee offers a blank canvas to do just that. Yes, we provide lighting, heating and carpet flooring, but after that, it’s down to you. You can put balloons all over the place, banners around the edges, a flower wall at one end or even dancing party lights to really create a party atmosphere. This particular customer opted for banners, balloons and fairy lights to create a unique space for their guests to enjoy all day and night.
Last but not least….The clean-up, let us do the work!
We’ve all been there, the morning after the night before when you go downstairs and see the mess that has been created from everybody partying in your house, then you’ve got to go to the cleaning cupboard to start scrubbing the floors and surfaces usually in a hungover state. Well, when you hire a marquee and you have your guests mainly outside then your house remains well protected. This customer couldn’t believe how satisfying it was to just put all the rubbish in the bin and then watch us take the marquee down and pack it away, leaving them with a clear garden, as if nothing had ever happened!
Now, isn’t that just perfect?
