Consider renting some of these items:

Bounce House

The bounce house is always a classic at any party. It is always a hit with the kids and it gives adults the perfect time to mingle and socialize. The Bounce House doesn’t only have to be for the kids either. Have you seen the new Photo Booth bounce houses? Capture the perfect bounce photo with family and friends!

Lawn Games

From Giant Jenga to Giant Connect 4, to Cornhole and golf chipping games. If you have a TV set up in your backyard, another great idea would be to set up any activity video games like Just Dance, Nintendo Wii, or Mario Kart. These are all perfect choices for outdoor parties. Easy to set up and guests of all ages can play and have fun.

Movie Night

Movie Screen

Watching a movie under the stars is a unique and fun party activity for all. Renting a movie screen and projector is a great way to wind down and create a memorable outdoor movie experience for you and your guests. Set up a snack bar with popcorn, candy, drinks and ice cream next to the movie. Gather some pillows, blankets and enjoy the movie! Your guests will love it!

Tent or Canopy

A tent or Canopy is an ESSENTIAL for anyone and everyone who is planning an outdoor event during the daytime hours. The sun can be extra overwhelming especially in the city of Los Angeles. You will want to provide your guests with the most amount of shade as possible in order to keep everyone comfortable, including yourself.

Portable Sound System/DJ

Music sets the tone for any party. Whether it be a children’s birthday party or a 50th Year Anniversary, music is an essential for any celebration. Having a DJ or a Portable Sound System is an easy way to ensure your music is loud and clear. Lucky for you, we are partnered with LA’s favorite DJ Agency; Famous DJ Agency. They provide a wide range of DJ’s and packets in order to ensure you have the right tone set for your next event. They also have portable sound systems available to rent.

Fill and Chill Tables

Renting a mini-pub fill and chill table is a fun way to create a space where guests can chat and have their choice of drinks all right in the same location. This is great for creating table space that doesn’t take up too much room.

When planning a party, you may get caught up with the exciting aspect of renting out new items and the activities to keep your guests entertained. However, in order to plan a well functioning event you will need all the essentials to keep it running. Some essentials you will need to rent out include:

  • Plates – Make sure to plan accordingly with your meals. If your event will be serving appetizers, salad, dinner, and dessert then you will want to make sure to have the appropriate plate setting for each. 
  • Glasses – Like the plates, you will want to make sure you have the right glass for each beverage like water, wine, beer, soda, and coffee. Some can be used double!
  • Silverware – Think about each course meal and what your guests will need. 
  • Tables – How many guests will turn out to this event? Create a visual map of who will sit where and how many tables you’ll need to make that happen. Also take into consideration any extra tables for presents, cake, snacks, and so on.
  • Chairs – Where will your guests sit if you don’t have enough chairs for each of them? Make sure to count those RSVP’s! 
  • Theme Decor – Every party events has a theme and you’ll want to decorate accordingly. Is it an 80s themed party? Boho style? Great Gatsby? The themes are endless!

Other non-rental items that should be kept in mind are:  

  • Ice
  • Paper Towels
  • Garbage Bags
  • Extra Toilet Paper
  • If Grilling; charcoal, lighter fuel, and check tank

Note It. 

After the celebration has ended and all of your hard work of planning an event has been put to the test. Then, it is a good idea to record in a journal how much was left over and what people enjoyed the most. Recording this will help you in the future when you plan your next gathering. Think of your party journal as a reference to look back on when you are trying to remember your aunt’s favorite drink. That way you can have it at the next celebration.
