Hosting a big outdoor party can be a blast, but it can also be quite stressful. Unless you’re a celebrity and can afford to hire musicians, rock stars, professional caterers, and other luxurious forms of entertainment, you’re probably going to have to get creative and do a little legwork in order to throw a successful party.
There are a few tips you can use, however, that will ensure a wonderful time for both you and your guests.
Rent Party Equipment
One of the biggest worries associated with throwing a big outdoor party is the fact that you have to supply everything yourself. This can be a major problem, especially if you’re on a tight budget or simply do not have the necessary supplies. Luckily, there are party equipment rentals that you can use to make sure you have everything your guests will need. If you really want to have a memorable party, think about dance floor rentals and large tent accessories and furniture for your party. Your best bet is to rent party equipment from the same company as well, because if you rent tables and chairs from one company, for example, why not rent the rest of the supplies from that same company?

Provide “Volunteer” Entertainment
The entertainment for your outdoor party doesn’t have to be a Vegas headliner. Simply having some background music with some dancing tunes will suffice. There is probably a good chance you know a few friends who would love to get together and jam on stage for a few hours. If not, think about putting together a playlist that you can stream through your iPod or computer.
Don’t Invite More Than You Can Host
Another major problem party throwers have is that they over-invite. Just because you’re having a party doesn’t mean you have to invite every friend you’ve ever had or everyone that will find out about it. Parties are usually much better when they consist of select friends and family, because it can be much more intimate and fun. Rather than having to please a significant number of people, including providing enough food and drinks for everyone, it’ll be much less stressful to only worry about a select few guests.
