Gathering even a medium sized group of family members inside your home for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinners and gift giving may be risky this season. Gathering outdoors, however, may provide the safety you need to be able to spend some time with loved ones this holiday season.

Is a late fall or winter outdoor event possible in Northeast Ohio? Consider the possibility with a heated tent and some advanced prep. Sully’s Party Rental has what you need.

Choose your tent

Your tent should be large enough to accommodate your guests with some extra room so it is not crowded and it will be well ventilated. Decide on the best location for your tent – grass or pavement – considering weather conditions.

At Sully’s, easy to set up tents are available for your lawn or driveway. Sidewalls will be a must, and ours are available in solid panels or with windows. You choose your style and we can help with set up, including securely anchoring your walls top and bottom to keep out those cold gusts.

Choose your heater

The size of the heater you will need is based upon the size of your tent. Our staff can help you calculate your best options to keep your tent comfortable inside even if it is cold outside.

Sully’s heaters available for rent come in a full range of sizes up to 85,000 BTU. Heaters operate on propane or propane and electricity and are safe to run with proper ventilation. Whether you choose a larger heater or two smaller units, propane heat will keep your guests comfortable. Our team can also help with portable deck heaters that can provide additional radiant heat for your outdoor event. Ask our experts for guidance to be sure you have enough propane to fuel your event from start to finish.

What else you may need

You may want to consider a floor for your tent to protect from the cold radiating from the ground or to provide stability if you are placing your tent on grass. Sully’s has event decking that will provide the protection you need.

Don’t limit your invitations by your available seating or place settings. Sully’s can provide all the tables, chairs, china and linens you need for any size event.
