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!

Quick Install of Luncheon Tent

Mahaffey provided a 66 ft. x 216 ft. tent a corporate employee luncheon today. The company contacted us and requested the tent on March 8th and within a week we had it up and ready to go, four days before the actual event. We quickly addressed their needs and immediately began preparing for the event after being contacted. Mahaffey also provided the tables, chairs and lighting for the event.

Here are some photos from the luncheon. Enjoy!

Beautiful Clear Top Tents

As cooler temperatures approach, now is the perfect time to book a clear top tent. Fall is a beautiful season for any event and a clear top tent can provide the elegant and sophisticated look you desire. You’ll be able to enjoy the beautiful clouds by day and the moon-lit sky by night. On this blog post, we want to share some pictures of clear top tents that we’ve done in the past! These first few pictures are from a gala event that took place in Little Rock, Ark., a few years ago. We covered the pool with a clear cover flooring and used blue lighting to create a bold, striking effect. Take a look!
