Birthday Parties

Everybody loves a good party. Parties are occasions where people gather together for socialization or recreation. A party is a light-hearted occasion that brings together friends, family members, colleagues, and acquaintances. A great party will usually feature food and beverages, and oftentimes, music and dancing as well. Some parties are held in honor of a specific person, day, or event.

One ubiquitous celebration is the birthday party. A birthday is a day when a person celebrates his or her day of birth. The traditional western birthday,especially for children and teenagers, features cakes, candles, balloons, streamers, ice cream, and gifts. The birthday cake is served with lit candles. The celebrants and the guests will then sing “Happy Birthday” or, more rarely, ”For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow”.

Birthdays for young adults in the western world tend to emphasize partying: music, dancing, food, liquor, and socializing. Different cultures and religious groups have their own birthday traditions. The bar mitzvah is a Jewish rite of passage for boys on their 13th birthday.

In Hinduism, a celebrant’s 12th or 13th birthday is celebrated with a grand thread ceremony.

Many major religions celebrate the birth of their deities or founders such as Buddha’s Birthday in Buddhist Cultures and Christmas in some Christian countries. Birthday celebrations and galas on a grand scale are often held in outdoor gardens or lawns inside large tents or marquees. Birthday celebrants can make their parties more memorable by hiring companies that provide services for tent rentals.

Modern party marquees and tent rentals offered by many tent rental companies are made of durable materials such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or polyethylene. Marquees and party tents are often beautifully decorated and come in different styles and colors. This versatility allows party planners to create tent interiors that can be either elegant or festive, depending on the nature of the birthday celebration. Party tents often require specialized equipment and skill to erect.

tent rentals companies use tensioned ratchets or stakes to hold down marquees and party tents. For pool parties, garden parties, and children’s birthdays, aluminum frame marquees are more appropriate. Aluminum frame marquees have no center poles or guy ropes and can be erected on any stable surface next to adjacent buildings or other tents. Aluminum frame marquees can be spread over pool areas, gardens, or trees.
