Avoid the Summer Sizzle with These Market Umbrellas
Sunburns suck. There’s no other way to describe them. And with summer in full swing, without the protection of market umbrellas or natural shade, the chance of getting crispy during an event is higher than ever.
No one wants to sit in the sun all day, but it’s a busy season for outdoor events. How can you prevent your guests from sizzling in the sunshine during weddings, graduations and other parties?
Well, if your venue or the event location doesn’t already have natural tree coverage, you’ll want to have some other shady options available to add to a rental package. These include market umbrellas or even rental tents for larger areas. With a few of these sun-stopping options in your inventory, you’ll be able to bump up rental package margins and leave your guests sunburn-free!
From the classic white outdoor umbrella to giant pole tents, here are a few shady selections to consider adding to your party rental inventory.
