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.

‘Twas a Festivious Season at Mahaffey

We absolutely love this time of year, not only due to the warmer weather, but also because it’s festival season! Two huge festivals we love being a part of are New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. Although it is crazy busy at Mahaffey getting ready for these events, we wouldn’t have it any other way.

We have been providing the structures for Jazz Fest for the past 30 years, and it’s always an honor. After the inaugural festival in 1970, it was envisioned as an important event with both cultural significance and popular appeal. No other fest can quite compare to the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, ranked the Festival of the Year four times by Pollstar magazine and called “the country’s very best music festival’’ by Life magazine.

Bonnaroo, which takes place in Manchester, Tennessee, offers four full days of  music, comedy, art, shopping and camping. Set up like a miniature city on over 700 acres, this festival is quite an adventure. For over five years, Mahaffey has been providing tents, clearspan structures and stage covers for this event. Well-known artists including as Jack Johnson, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers, Passion Pit, The Lumineers and Drew Holcomb & the Neighbors performed at this year’s festival.

Here are a few pics of our tents in action!

Snowy Nights: Memphis’ Own Winter Wonderland

Ready for a night out with the kids or a night to just act like a kid? The Memphis Botanic Garden has the perfect event for you… Snowy Nights in My Big Backyard. This fun, giant play area located in My Big Backyard is complete with a playhouse, musical light show and an interactive snow globe. Games and crafts projects will entertain little ones with activities such as cookie dough ornament decoration, Mitten Toss and Tic-Tac-Snow, designing a Giant Light Bright and searching for hidden snowflakes! Just in case in gets chilly, campfire pits are located on the patio. Don’t forget your s’mores ingredients though; these fire pits are for more than just keeping warm. S’more kits, hot cocoa and other concessions will be available for purchase for those craving some winter treats.

Not only did Mahaffey install the structure for the giant snow globe, but we also wanted to share this neat experience with the community. We were able to donate tickets to FirstWorks, a non-denominational, faith-based,  501(c)3 non-profit organization that strives to meet the needs of inner city children in Memphis, Tennessee. Founded in 1988, the organization still continues to meet every Tuesday night during the academic school year.  Children are dropped off for dinner and then participate in academic lessons, life-skill initiatives, tutoring and assistance with homework. FirstWorks loves to provide opportunities for the kids to have fun, so we are excited to share the good news!

Snowy Nights will be open Fridays and Saturdays from November 23rd through December 15th. Beginning December 17th, through the 29th, it will be open daily. On the 20th, 24th and 25th, Snowy Nights will be closed. Hours are 6:00-8:30, with the last admission at 8:00 p.m. We hope to see you there!
