Planning for celebrations from wedding receptions to graduation parties this spring and summer is focusing on a relaxing of pandemic mandates with an eye for continued caution. Make sure you are ready for anything with Sully’s Rental.

Trends for wedding receptions, rehearsals, Easter and spring parties, and graduation parties are moving toward bigger gatherings with colorful accessories and fun themes, while using settings and setups that provide space for guests to move and gather. Setting a festive atmosphere with places for guests to linger is a priority as we get back to celebrations with a feeling of normalcy.

For weddings, especially, planning seems to be moving away from the small, intimate parties of the last two years and toward large and even blowout bashes, with the benefit of open-air settings that still provide the safety of the outdoors and ventilation. These receptions may be formal affairs with elegant touches or whimsical, colorful events with guests going all out for their attire.

With Sully’s Rental, you can have everything you need, from the formal to the whimsical, for your 2022 celebrations.

  • Open air tents with optional windowed walls to protect guests from the elements, maintain ventilation, and provide the elegant atmosphere you desire.
  • Tent draping in a full range of color and textures that will transform your tent into a stunning party room or a themed venue.
  • Linens, china, glassware, and bar service for the ultimate celebration of spring, Easter, or your nuptials.
  • A wide selection of extras to complete your special event, including fountains, centerpieces, and concession machines.

Whether your next event is a formal party or a casual summer graduation celebration, Sully’s has a team on hand to help with the details, from those high school and college colors to dance floors and disco lights. Pole and frame tents are available in multiple sizes to accommodate even the largest gathering.

Is seating your concern? Use Sully’s tent size calculator and our party seating and table layout resources to maximize space and create the perfect setup for your guests to safely gather. Add a finishing touch with table skirting, chair scarves, or Chiavari chairs.

This year, nothing is more important than throwing the party of your dreams. Contact Sully’s Rental for all your party needs!

Congratulations on getting engaged this holiday season! The dreaming, the fun, and the work begins now, and Sully’s Party Rental is available to help with all your wedding planning details.

Considering the start of your life together is some of the best time you will spend with your chosen partner. Be sure to enjoy this time before diving into your wedding planning.

  • Call your family and friends to share your news.
  • Plan a small engagement celebration.
  • Show off your ring and be sure to get it insured.
  • Discuss your dream wedding with your fiancé and those closest to you.

Wedding planning tips

Actual planning of your wedding day will likely begin soon after your engagement, but take your time before locking in a date and vendors. Your early discussions should revolve around those traditions and elements that are “must-haves” so you can build details around them. It also is helpful to have an idea of the size of your guest list and budget so you don’t get your heart set on a venue that isn’t big enough or is outside of your budget limit.

Keep the following in mind as you begin your planning:

  • Pick a season that fits your dream first. Your venue, colors and decorations will all follow naturally from the season of the year you have chosen.
  • Create a venue checklist before you begin visiting potential locations. Your list of requirements for your venue will help eliminate unsuitable locations and guide your questions as you visit those locations that may fit your dream.
  • Lock in your date and venue before moving on to other potential vendors, including rental of tables, chairs, and glassware. Having a couple dates in mind within your chosen season will make it easier to book the venue you like best.

Your wedding planning team

With the many decisions you will need to make as you plan your wedding, the team you build will be crucial. Identify your go-to team members at your venue, catering company, photographer, and all vendors providing items to complete your day.

At Sully’s, our professionals are on-hand to help you with the perfect rental items as well as working with your venue to supply everything you need to create your dream wedding.

Choose Sully’s services for the following:

  • Small ceremonies set in a park or yard
  • Large weddings at outdoor venues
  • Traditional weddings in party centers or church halls

We can outfit any wedding celebration with beautiful tents draped and decorated, tables and chairs finished with table skirts and runners, as well as a full complement of linens, café lights, china and place settings, full bar service, a dance floor and music equipment, and seasonal specialties, including heat or air conditioning.

Contact Sully’s Rental early in your wedding planning process and add us to your team of planning professionals. We are ready to help you take your holiday engagement to the perfect wedding of your dreams.

At Sully’s Party Rental, our goal is to ensure you have exactly what you need for any event. For outdoor parties, weddings, festivals, and more, a tent is critical, but not every tent is right for every venue.

Our experts are always available to work with you when it comes to choosing a tent for your event. We supply frame tents and pole tents (also called canopies). How the space will be used, the amount of available space for the tent, and whether the surface is pavement or grass are all important considerations when choosing a tent.

Check out the following features and considerations and contact our team for guidance on your frame tent or pole tent.

Pole tents

Pole tents are great for short-term events such as parties, weddings, and festivals, because they are easy to set up and take down. Tension between stakes on the outside of the tent and center poles keeps them erect. Although the center poles can block views, they also can lend themselves to additional decoration with vines, drapes, or flowers. Because these tents must be staked, your venue must be grass with additional space for the ropes.

Pros and cons

  • Set up is relatively easy, but surface must be grass to allow staking of the tent
  • Available space must be larger than the tent itself to allow for stakes and ropes
  • Attractive exterior profile
  • Center poles may limit set up options for interior
  • Generally less expensive to rent


Frame tents

Frame tents are more versatile than pole tents because they do not require staking. The framework itself provides structure for the tent, so they can be erected on grass or pavement with concrete blocks to secure them, making the overall footprint only slightly larger than the tent itself. With no center poles, interior set up has no obstructions. However, setting up the tent is more difficult and involves more parts and some heavy lifting.

Pros and cons

  • May be used on any surface and where space is somewhat limited because of its frame and smaller footprint
  • No center poles to obstruct views or limit interior set up options
  • Visible interior pole structure can be covered with draping
  • Tend to be more expensive because of labor and parts needed for set up


Our frame and pole tents are available in multiple sizes and may be accessorized with sidewalls and lighting to provide the atmosphere you desire for your event. Call Sully’s today for information and guidance on the best tent for your event.
