Have you ever been to a party in the evening where you could hardly see from one side of the dance floor to the next?
Well, I have and it made wanting to walk around and mingle with other guests such a hassle that not many people did. Lighting for an event is crucial to set an ambience for your guests and to help create the tone in which you are going for. Here are a few things that you will need to consider when thinking about lighting for your next gathering.
Things to Consider for Lighting
You will first need to either visit or visualize what your space is going to look like. Is there a bunch of windows? Is this a narrow place or have the capacity for doors to be open and let in more light? You will also need to consider what kind of tone you want to set up for you guests. If you are wanting to guests to party all night and only have one light, well odds are they are not going to be moving around much because they can’t see. So consider doing a light spray (the top picture) over your dance floor. If you are wanting it to be more classy than you can always get chandeliers to hang with some softer lights around the perimeter of your space/tent. Remember that you want a balance between functional lighting and decorative lighting.
Your lighting plan will determine how your guests feel in your event/tent space. The brightness, appearances, and overall effects will help your guests enjoy themselves on the day. By renting your fixtures, you can pick and choose everything you need for a memorable celebration.
To find the best lighting rentals for your special event, contact Park Avenue Parties today to get started.
Can you believe that we are mid-way through July already?! I know that we still have hot days ahead and many more parties to come, but fall is coming, and we are here to kick start all you need to know.
Fall colors are in the air with rust, green hues, and burgundy. Good thing, that here at Park Avenue Parties we have all the linen colors you need to spice up your table settings. From our linen napkins to our options in tablecloths your guests will fall in love with your details.
Wine barrels are still huge this fall with them being placed at the front of the aisles, used as bars or desserts tops, and cocktail tables around the dance floor. We are also seeing lots of people using natural elements such as wood blocks and tons of votives with candles making us nostalgic for fairytales.
Finally, another consistent element this fall are the farm tables and chairs. This is a rustic look allowing all the colors to shine on the natural wood.
So, whatever if you have in mind for your fall weddings, gatherings, events, or even a family reunion come on down or call us at Park Avenue Parties.
Can you believe that it is almost Fourth of July! This summer is flying by and we want to soak up all the memories this summer.
I don’t know about you, but I love celebrating my birthday with family, friends, good cake, and lots of laughter. This Fourth of July Park Avenue Parties wants to help you create all the memories for years to come. This summer has been extremely hot outside and no matter how big or small your gathering will be let us help you with outdoor shade. Our 20x20 Marquees tents are perfect for some shade while your outside barbecuing with the family. We also have poly tables, chairs, fire pits (to roast marshmallows when the sun goes down), disposable table clothes and silverware. Accessorize with fun party supplies like a snow cone machine and a popcorn maker. Come on down today or give us a call so we can help you celebrate like it’s your birthday this Fourth of July!
A favorite tent for special events, fairs, trade shows, and food service use. With its ease of setup and light weight frame, the original Peak Marquee (MQ) is user-friendly as well as attractive for party or events. (Warner Shelter Systems Limited.Peak Marque Tents pg.1). The frame tents are great to keep all guests out of the weather no matter rain or shine, range in size from a 10x10 to a 20x40, designed for a quick and easy setup and can also be combined to create a larger space. Along with the original shape marquee tent, another one of our tents and favorite shape is the hexagon tent. This shape is sleek and unique giving your guests a one-of-a-kind atmosphere. This tent can also be connected to other frame tents allowing you to make room for all your guests, catering team, and even put your dance floor in the center!
Last but not least, our biggest tent of them all is our pole tents. These tents are open and airy like a big circle tent. They are easy set up but require more time with higher tent tops. This allows your guests and you to feel more connected and free to roam around. So if you are planning on a larger wedding with plenty of space this just might be the route for you! Our ole tents range in size from 30x60 to 40x120, waterproof, and can attach sides for all weather conditions (excluding snow).

When having a wedding, you need to take into a count the variety of tables you are going to need to have. Since most likely you won’t be using these tables again and it gets expensive to buy all the necessary tables, come check out what Park Avenue Parties has for your table and chair rentals and place your order.
There are many types of wedding tables you can rent from Park Avenue Parties with the most common ones being:
THE HEAD TABLE
This is often a rectangular table that the wedding party sit at. Farmhouse tables are a great and elegant head table that allow the wedding party to stand out. This also creates a great atmosphere for a family setting meal to be shared.
Wanting more of an intimate moment for just you and your partner? Consider going for a smaller sweetheart table. This is a small round, or square table that allows you and your loved one the much-needed alone time. The table also allows your wedding party to mingle with the guests.
Food is a many gathering area for a wedding reception. Whether you’re having a ton of guest or a smaller reception make sure that you have enough tables to properly get people through the line. You do not want granny or uncle bob to be waiting all night to get their food.
When it comes to renting your food tables take into mind what food is going to be served, more and more people are doing informal dining. This dining is best served as a buffet style, you can have three large rectangular tables that make a T shape. This way you can get more guests through the line quicker and everyone should be eating around the same time.
THE CAKE TABLE
The best table to rent for your cake is a round table. The wedding cake can be one of the most expensive and significant parts of the wedding so you should place it at a place where everyone can see it and marvel at its beauty. This also goes for a dessert table if you are doing something other than cake.
Smaller cakes, look great on display using a highboy table. The extra height of the table will make the cake stand out and allow for the extra WOW factor.
THE GUEST BOOK / CHECK-IN TABLE
From its name, this is a table that you place for your guests to check-in and find their tables. The guests will also be given a chance to sign the guest book. You can rent a rectangular or square table, ensuring that the table fits in with the overall theme of the wedding. This is also a great way to add a custom color linen to the table to make it pop at the entrance.
Unlike the cake table that you want everyone to see, you want to make sure that the gift table is accessible but not in the way. However, make sure that even though the table is not on display, that this table is not hidden. The best table to use as a gift table is a rectangular table that you

So many of our clients have requested a stand-alone lighting system that we have finally answered your prayers. As you can see in the middle picture above, we have designed a new lighting system that will allow clients to not use a tent if they are no wanting one. The wine barrels allow the weighted pole to stand tall while placing the stools in the first picture around each barrel. This allows you to get some awesome lighting as well as space for your guests to sit around the fun. This is a great way to optimize space and put your dance floor underneath.
So come on down and see our showroom with all your rental needs.
