Plan for a change in the weather

Plan for a change in the weather

Dreaming of an idyllic sunset as the backdrop to your next event?

Or imagining your guests chatting the day away in a relaxed outdoor setting – at the lake, beach, river, park or in your backyard?

Don’t let the uncertainty of the weather forecast dampen your excitement. Get your weather preparations in place early to reduce your stress. Then you can get on with the fun parts of event prep: planning your theme, choosing your cuisine and ordering your decorations.

Get covered

A sturdy marquee is a great option to ensure your outdoor fun isn’t taken over by the rain or wind.

From 3-metre to 20-metre structures, with open or closed sides, our range of marquee and canopy sizes and styles can fit into a surprising variety of spaces. And the best part? We’ll come and put it up for you.

Remember, hiring a marquee could save your outdoor event!

Warm it up

On a cool evening after the sun retreats, you want your guests to stick around. Not everyone will keep warm on the dancefloor!

Order some outdoor column heaters to warm the crowd. They’re easy to move around and can be switched off if things get a tad too hot.

Cool it down

When it’s scorching outside, you’ll need to offer some shade and comfort to your guests.

Our umbrellas or spring top pagodas are ideal for shade from the hot sun and add extra style to an outdoor setting. Hire a few of our market umbrella in yellow to really make an impression.

We also recommend strategically placed ice tubs for relaxed access to a refreshing beverage or two.

Other outdoor ideas

Depending on your party theme, you may want to introduce rugs, blankets, cushions, lounges or stools.

All these give you options. They’ll encourage people to congregate in different locations – listening to tunes or catching up – but all within reach of the main event.

Now, our final word of advice (cause we’ve been doing this for a while now): In the case of a once-in-a-decade storm front, always lock in a Plan B – just in case.
