Playing Catch-up on postponed parties

Playing Catch-up on postponed parties

It has been a rough time globally. Socializing has been abandoned in the face of a force beyond our ability to contain. In the interest of our friends, family, and neighbors, we have given up gatherings to celebrate both joy and sorrow. There will be an end to this portion of our lives, and when it does, we are going to want to make up for the lost time. We are going to want to celebrate joy first because most of what has been broadcasted to us has been gloomy.
When it comes to fun for the kids that didn’t get their birthday parties, and families kept apart, nothing says fun like a party in the park, like tents, bounce house rentals and water slide rentals. If money is tight, you may have to pick just one of these attractions for your “out of quarantine” festivities. So let’s take a look at each one to see what will work for you.

When considering tent and canopy rentals, the primary considerations are:
Tents
Cost – For the 20’ x 20’ tent is around $400 for the duration of the party.
Size of gathering – 32 – 40 guests will do well inside a 20×20 tent. If you want to be sure that your event avoids getting canceled for inclement weather, this is an ideal solution.
Canopies
Cost – For the 20’ x 20’ tent is around $400 for the duration of the party.
A 15’x15’ canopy will cover the size of the gathering – Up to 25 guests. Tent and canopy rentals are good choices to keep the sun or weather from spoiling your event.

The pertinent factors when choosing a bounce house rental is:
Cost – Plan on spending $30 to $50 per hour. If your party is going to be a two-hour birthday party, $100 may be in your price range.
Age of partiers – If your party is for children, a bounce house with a splash area might interest you. If your group consists of inebriated adults intent on reliving their youth, I recommend the plain bounce house as there is less to break. The bounce houses with sides and/or splash areas go for anywhere from $200 to $575 per day.
Size of party group – The commercial rental bounce houses can hold between five to ten children at a time, so your party should top out at fifteen guests.
The bounce house rental company should provide set-up and takedown, the generator to keep the bounce house aired up, and liability insurance.

For water slide rentals, the following should be taken into consideration:
Cost – from between $150 and $500, the average for water slide rentals that had a splash area at the end was about $300.
Age of partiers – There were several water slides that would accommodate adults, making it a more family-friendly item.
Size of the group – water slides can accommodate a large crowd. The only thing to keep in mind here would be the wait time to slide. Parties with 15 – 30 guests would be ideal.
