I know we are all wanting summer to stay forever but let’s be real, fall is one of the most beautiful times during the year in Colorado. Parties can be held outside still with the colors changing but there are a few things you will need to make sure you think about before hand.
Location and the ground sounds like something you wouldn’t need to think about before your rentals but there can be extra charges and complications you might not see coming. During fall the weather and ground can get hard and cold due to the temperatures dropping. If you are having a tent this is something you will need to think about. If we are unable to get our stakes to hold down the tent than we will have to use water barrels to make sure that there is enough support. This might come at an extra cost so make sure that you add a buffer into your budget.
Fall days tend to be very hot and cold with the temperatures dropping low in the evening time. This is something to also take into consideration. You do not want your guests leaving the party early because they are cold. You might think that there will be enough body heat in the tent or event space to be comfortable but I would recommend that you have heaters just in case. If the temperature drops that day you don’t want to have to end the night early.
Tents are the perfect rental equipment to use during the fall weather, to be able to, capture the essence of the leaves changing and the beauty that Colorado displays. With this being said, you need to make sure that you include sides on your tent in case the weather wants to change during the course of the day. This will help your guests to stay warm, dry, and all your décor from flying away in the wind. The last thing you want is to get to your reception under a tent and have everything be dirty because the wind decided to pick up.
This leads to the last think you will want to make sure you are aware of prior to the event. Whether you are having a gathering, wedding, or just a celebration make sure that you get a few extra tableware, silverware, table cloths, and chairs. Yes we all know that uncle and aunt that never RSVP’s and end up showing up. You want to make sure that you do have some extra space for this to happen so nobody is left out. Also, if the weather changes and the wind or rain comes you don’t want to not have any extra table ware items to switch out in case it is too dirty to keep on the table. With this said, also consider having your food tables be covered in black table cloths so if the food spills (which it always does) there are not food stains your guests have to look at all night. This will also will come in handy when you return the table cloths and you are not charged extra because the food stains ruined the rental items.
