Garden Marquee for a 50th Birthday Party
January is always a quiet time of year for marquee hire, that’s not just for us, it applies for all marquee hire companies. It is out of season at this time of year but marquees do get hired as there’s a wide range of uses for them, not just weddings which people so often associate with marquees and similar structures.
Our first hire job of 2014 was for a 50th birthday party in Creech, Dorset. A great location, quite, countryside and fields for views. The marquee was from the smaller end of our range and extended the living space in the house to accommodate the additional guests arriving for the event. A 6m x 6m clearspan was initially erected to the back of the house, covering the patio area. We then assembled a 3m x 6m to the side of this which was joined to the first marquee and sealed with our guttering system to ensure people could walk between the two structures without getting wet should the weather turn bad.
Interior hire for us was minimal on this event, with a little lighting and chair hire along with matting on the ground. The lighting we did was a favourite I must admit, festoon. Our festoon comes on 20m strings with clear bulbs set at 1m intervals. The strings can then be linked together to make the desired length. For this marquee we only required one string as we also incorporated some coloured led uplighters to add to the atmosphere.
All in all a simple setup compared to the normal wedding marquee type events we do so many of through out the summer months. Let us know if you have a requirement for a birthday marquee, we’ll be more than happy to quote, advise and survey your site before any commitment needs to be made.
