Delightful Douglass Reception

As spring begins, wedding season starts to bloom! This past weekend, Mahaffey Tent & Party Rentals proved its dedication to providing quality structures by constructing an elegant reception tent for a wedding planned by Social Graces that brought simplistic décor and elaborate design together to create the perfect atmosphere!

Fortunate to have beautiful weather for such a special occasion, the setting and décor of the event established a simplistic yet sophisticated ambience. Guests gathered beneath a 40×80 Mahaffey clear top tent, which allowed in natural light and provided a view of the clear blue sky above. Adding further simplistic elegance to the setting, Italian bulbs provided by Event Brite draped from the ceiling and were accented by an ornate chandeliers.

Mahaffey’s simplistically-styled farm tables and farm chairs filled this extraordinary space and struck a harmonious balance with the exquisite look of the chandeliers, Italian bulbs and elegant ceiling liners. Functionally, they also provided guests means to take a short break from dancing the night away and take in the scene around them before continuing the celebration.

Did You Know Series: Event Tent App

If you are planning a party, wedding, corporate or any type of event that needs TENTS, download the “Event Tent” app, by  IFAI’s Tent Rental Division, that will begin the tent planning process for you! Planning an event is not the easiest thing to do. Especially when you have a checklist of (what seems like) about a million things you have to take care of before the big event takes place.

This app is super easy to use and is similar to Mahaffey’s tent size tool. The app is free to download and once opened, you enter the date of your event, the event type, the location and ground surface. On the second page, you put in your number of guests, seating arrangements and accessories (such as tables and entertainment). Simply hit Calculate after entering your information, and the final page displays your estimated area needed, the best tent size and room to spare. Simple as that! If you need further help, simply enter your information and within MINUTES you will be contacted by the nearest tent rental company, such as Mahaffey, and you can order your tent!

Have fun, party planners!

Spring Creek Ranch Wedding Reception

This past Saturday was a busy one for Mahaffey Tent & Party Rentals, and we’re excited to share what we were up to!

We provided two tents and the tent accessories for a wedding reception at Spring Creek Ranch in Collierville, TN. Spring Creek Ranch contacted us last fall needing to double their capacity space to accommodate a 580+ guest wedding reception, the largest they’ve ever done.

We worked quickly to develop a solution, which was adding two tents as an extension off the main golf house. We built scaffolding to match the height of the outdoor patio area outside the golf house and laid Bil-Jax on top of the scaffolding to create the floor surface. Two twin-tube tents were then installed side by side. The largest tent measured 40 ft x 75 ft while the other measured 40 ft x 45 ft.

Finishing touches on the tents included a gorgeous ceiling liner, three wrought iron chandeliers, carpet, wood dance floor, staging, canister lights, railing, banquet tables, cocktail tables, silver chiavari chairs, white chair pads, as well as steel and ivory pintuck linens and silver satin sashes.

This event was quite an undertaking and it definitely presented its set of challenges, the biggest one being the scaffolding since it was built on various ground levels. Our crew overcame the challenges and everything turned out great. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Spring Creek Ranch and all the other vendors to make this wedding a huge success.

Here are some of the photos we captured just hours before the event! Enjoy!
