The 411 on Pole Tents Vs. Frame Tents

One of the most frequent questions we receive from customers is, “What’s the difference between a pole tent and a frame tent and how does this affect the price?” With this post, we hope to clear the fog around this common confusion!

To begin with: what’s the difference between pole tents and frame tents? The difference can actually be found in their names. Pole tents, also commonly called “circus tents,” have large poles in the center of the tent that help hold up the tent top. These poles create the swoop effect commonly seen in circus or fair tents:

Make Your Event Unique!

Whenever we have brides or event planners in our showroom, they are looking for the one thing that is going to set their event apart from all of the others. With so many weddings/events going on every year, how can yours stand out and be truly unique to who you are? One solution is with your rentals, and we are seeing exciting new options out there for brides and planners! Check out some of the different ideas we’ve seen on Pinterest, the web, or from our own inventory:

Colored Chiavaris: Painting or renting colored Chiavari chairs is one way to really pump some excitement into your event! With so much color going on in the chairs, allow your tablescape to remain neutral and use your florals to provide additional pops of color.

Gatsby Glam

It’s Friday, May 10th, which means The Great Gatsby movie is finally coming out! The event world has been buzzing with the art deco glamour of the movie and time period for some time now. To celebrate all things Gatsby, we’ve planned the perfect event for you to party like the man himself!

Venue: Choose a location that screams glamour, elegance, and maybe a touch of deco. Nashville has the perfect venue in The Frist Center for the Visual Arts. The old style of the lobby will bring you straight back to the 1920s! Also look for grand hotel ballrooms or elegant estates, such as the mansion at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens.

Décor: Below we have compiled some of our favorite Gatsby inspirations. Think golds and bronzes with pops of feathers, pearls, and sparkles.

Florals: Lush white flowers work best for this theme. Gardenias, white roses, and mountains of orchids arranged in lush centerpieces will provide elegance to the rest of your glamorous décor pieces.

With these elements, plus a creative menu, you will be ready to throw the perfect Gatsby party!
