Many people prefer not to use a pole tent for their outdoor event because the pole(s) can be considered an eye-soar. Because you have one or more poles supporting the tent, a little bit of the entertaining space is compromised for the poles. Having poles can also limit where the tent can be placed. While these are not major drawbacks, you may also want to consider a frame tent. A frame tent requires no poles to be fastened into the ground. Because of this, frame tents are often set up on patios, decks, driveways, and on other various types of terrain. Rather than poles, interlocking bars provide support as they create a barrier-free, freestanding structure for you and your guests.

The two different types of commonly used tents for outdoor events and gatherings are pole tents and frame tents. Pole tents, just as they sound, are tents which are stabilized by securing poles into the ground. Because of this, they are ideal for areas with grass but not for areas with hard surfaces such as concrete. For a tent to be considered a pole tent, there must be at least one pole holding up the tent. For tents with just one single pole, the pole will be located in the center of the tent. This offers balance and stability as well as an opportunity for additional decoration to be hung. It also gives the tent a more traditional tent shape with a tall peak in the center. While some prefer this option, others do not. If the pole is a concern for you and your guests because it may be seen as an eyesore, frame tents are also an option. If a pole tent does sound like a good option for your next event, there are different options to choose from to best meet your needs. To browse these options, please click here.

We live in a beautiful state. Those warm weather months come and go quickly though, wouldn't you agree? With spring finally here and summer right around the corner, I suggest taking your parties outside. Who doesn't love a good outdoor get-together with family and friends, after all? Sunshine. Fresh air. Cool breeze. Scenic views. Laid-back feel. Spacious environment. Planning an outdoor party or event provides you with a beautiful blank canvas. You are free from space and layout restrictions that come with planning something indoors. You can make it as formal or informal as you would like. It is also the perfect opportunity to throw some food on the grill. Grilling can be easy and inexpensive compared to some of the other food alternatives. You and your guests will have a good time as you enjoy the season while it is here and all that it has to offer. So, what do you think? Kick back and enjoy the sounds of nature, have a hamburger, and grab one of those drinks with the little umbrellas in the cup.🍹🌞
