Preparing for Labor Day Events With These Important Party Rentals
Demand for party rentals tends to increase during holiday weekends, especially during the summer. That means that Labor Day could potentially be one of your biggest money-making holidays of the year. That is, if you play your cards right.
There are a few things you can do to prepare for Labor Day parties. With these tips and inventory suggestions, you’ll be ready for party success!
Essential Party Rentals For Labor Day
No matter where you are, Labor Day tends to be one of the warmer holidays during the year. If you’re coordinating an event that starts in the daytime, it’s essential that you provide some shade options for guests. The best way to do that is to offer market umbrellas as part of your party rentals package. That way, you’ll bump up your invoice and keep guests cool. Win win!
Three-day weekends tend to mean that people are more likely to let their hair down. With the promise of Monday off, guests want to cut loose! That means you’ll need to keep the cocktails and hors d'oeuvres going during the party. Make sure you have at least 1-2 Fill n’ Chill Party Tables to give every event a fun vibe. Your client and their guests will thank you.
There are perhaps no more essential party rentals than folding tables. Plastic or wood, rectangular or round, you simply can’t run a party rental company without a variety of them. Make sure that you have enough stock on hand for seating, buffet service, cocktail tables, and anything else that your Labor Day party requires.
Did we mention that you should expect people to cut loose? It’ll be easier for them to do that if you recommend or provide a skilled DJ or band for the event. And if you have portable dance floors to rent, it’s an easy way to get clients to sign on the dotted line.
When people get tired of dancing or simply want to sit down while they enjoy some food and drink, they’re going to need chairs. Since Labor Day is an outdoor event-friendly holiday, it’s best to opt for lighter, less expensive folding chairs to rent. Their easy maintenance requirements make them perfect for grassy areas or patios, and they’re much easier to stack and move after the event than heavier banquet chairs.
From twinkle lights across a field to indoor floral arrangements, it’s crucial to work with your guests before the event to get a sense of the aesthetic they’re after. For more formal Labor Day parties like weddings, you’ll want to pair gold Chiavari chairs with upscale bouquets and linens. For more casual gatherings like a birthday or retirement, you may want to offer white folding chairs with more rustic touches. No matter what type of event they’re after, make sure that your inventory of rental equipment can accommodate a variety of approaches so you have the best chance to maximize your ROI.
