Benefits of having a tent

When you plan an outdoor event or wedding, there are many aspects to consider.

Both the budget and the location play a big role in deciding whether having a tent or multiple tents is the right choice for you or not.

Choosing the right location:

When planning an outdoor event, the site is a key factor.

Banquets is another popular choice.

We are typically looking for a good choice for a small event, especially if planning a wedding is your goal.

There are many unique sites to choose from.

Such as forests, deserts, or places of parties where weddings and other outdoor parties are held.

There are also resorts and places offering beautiful views and unique locations.

They also tend to have more space for setting up a larger tent which is suitable for a larger event or wedding.

Another option is the ornamental gardens, which is an excellent option when doing a ceremony.

The tent simply gives the stunning natural beauty of the party.

When considering all the possibilities listed, you will need to keep several other things in mind.

Is there enough space for the appropriate tent?

Is Privacy a Factor?

If you are looking at a general location you may want to take care of security in this area for the tent.

Are there any restrictions for noise, lights or rules you should follow?

Do you need a license to build up your tent or for wines?

Is electricity available on site? It is very important if you are planning to have lighting or electrically powered equipment, make sure you have electricity.

Setting up the budget

You may only need to rent a tent, but you will usually need tables, chairs, heating, lighting, a dance floor, flax, Wipes, kitchen tools, table tools, glass tools and more.

Most weddings average cost is $100 per person which does not include a wedding dress or rent tent/place.

You may need to reduce the guest list when looking at your budget.

When you think deeper about your outdoor event, will you organize a concert or reception in a tent? In some places it’s usually  sunny but it is possible to rain or at least become very windy.

While tents are made to endure the weather, you should not underestimate the weather, and you must always have an alternative plan.

When choosing the style and the size of the tent that suits your event, you should decide whether you want only a tent roof or if you want walls too.

The size of the tent can be determined by a number of guests and by your appreciation of the event or party.

If you want a good reception for your visitors, you need a dance floor, buffet tables, dessert tables, etc.

All these elements are very important inside the tent and can affect the size of the tent of your choice.

Choose a decoration of the tent

When choosing your tent, you will also need to decide how to decorate it.

Each tent has a certain size, shape and internal structure that you will need to consider.

You should always ask to see your tent photos and see if they have a visual frame of the tent or central columns that may force you to change your layout.

You should also ask for options to hide the poles if you do not want to see them.

You must decide if you want walls on your tent or just a roof.

Walls are usually recommended especially in open spaces due to strong winds, and you can also specify the number of doors and windows in the tent.

Decorative possibilities are too many like bend fabric, hang lanterns, and adding plants or flowers, etc.

Heating in the tent is usually only necessary in spring, autumn or winter, especially if the event is late at night.

A heating option is the use of a large propane heater that can heat all the tent. The benefit of this type of heating is not occupying much space of the tent.

If you need energy, you may consider renting a generator or you can find out if there any portable energy source that you have it can be used.

The overall benefits of the tent event is to create a spacious and comfortable atmosphere for dining, dancing, and entertainment, that is unparalleled in any other traditional place.

You can design and customize the tent and accessories to complete your theme.

Here’s how to build a tent:

Link tent Frame

1- Link the frame

1.Make sure you have the materials you need.

Building a temporary tent is quick and easy, it does not require much.

Make sure you have a long piece of strong rope, two parts of the fabrics, and either four stakes, or large rocks in your surroundings.

Find a good place for the tent

2.Find a good place for your tent.

Find a place near two trees that are close enough to attach your rope between them, but far enough away to suits your fabrics.

You want to make sure that your tent is built at a low altitude.

As if it is a very high altitude then it will become very cold during the evening.

If the weather tends to rain, avoid building your tent in a steep valley that will gather the water later on.

Avoid building your tent directly under dead or vulnerable branches that seem to be falling in storms.

Make sure the ground is slightly damp

3.Make sure the ground is slightly damp.

This prevents dust storms if you are trying to make the tent shelter for overnight.

This will also help the fabrics to stick to the soil more efficiently, and the materials tend to adhere to the best with wet surfaces.

Use a strong rope and tie it between the trees

4.Use a strong rope and tie it between the trees.

Be sure to wrap it several times before connecting the knot.

Take the other end of the rope and attach it to the wooden shaft.

Make sure you tie the rope high enough for your tent to not be too tight.

If your rope is tied highly, your tarpaulins cannot reach the ground.

Securing the land

Securing the land

1.Check out the land where you planning to build your tent.

Make sure to remove the large rocks, gravel, and twigs from the ground before putting the fabrics down on the floor.

You want to cover the flooring to walk on a relatively soft floor that doesn’t contain anything can make a hole in the fabric.

2.Place one of the large fabrics on the floor.

Smooth and remove all wrinkles.

They should be directly under the rope that is suspended between the trees.

Try placing it so that it is positioned under the rope.

Fixing fabrics

3.Fixing fabrics.

If your fabrics have holes to get the Stakes at their corners, you can use Stakes to secure it on the floor.

Place the Stake through one of the holes and use either a heavy rock or a hammer to fix it into the ground.

Then do the same with the next corner, making sure that the fabrics are well grounded,

Don’t knock on stakes hardly, because you will knock on them again when you build the walls of your tent.

If you do not have stakes or your fabrics with holes to get stakes, use heavy rocks instead to install it on the floor.

Building walls

3.Building walls.

Suspension of the second fabrics

1.Suspension of the second fabrics

Throw your other fabrics on the rope that you tied between the trees.

Straighten it so that the fabrics are evenly attached to the bottom. If the fabrics barely reach the ground or do not touch the ground, you have tied your rope too high.

Install walls on the ground

2.Install walls on the ground.

You already have the first  with the stakes fixed on the ground, remove the wedge, then align the holes on both ends of the fabrics, then put the stakes in the holes and knock them to fixed it on the ground.

Repeat that with the other corners one by one.

If you’ve got the first tarpaulin with the rocks, simply lift all the rocks and put the corners of each fabric under the rocks then place the rocks on the corners until you get them fixed.

Build slopes to avoid water, if necessary.

3.Build slopes to avoid water, if necessary.

If you are worried about the rain that maybe threaten your tent, you can avoid water by stones and dirt.

Use whatever you can find around you, sticks, stones and dirt, to build a small wall around your tent canvas.

Alternatively, if your tent is on a slope, you can dig the trenches around your tent using a small shovel or tapered stone, which drives the rain to go round your tent instead of entering the tent.

Troubleshooting

4.Troubleshooting

1.Design tent with large fabrics.

If you do not have two parts of fabrics, but you have one large enough, you can work the tent walls with the ceiling with this big fabrics.

Place the fabrics on the floor under the rope. Place two rocks on two corners and two rocks in the middle of the fabrics on the edges.

Throw the edge of the fabrics and keep it on the rope, then close it on the opposite edge of the fabrics with the same rocks.

Cut the broken branches

2.Cut the broken branches.

If you want to install your tent with stakes, but do not have one, you can use broken tree branches.

Take the knife and make the four ends sharpened to the point.

You will need to find the branches thin enough to suit the holes in the fabrics, but thick enough not to break easily.

Make a tent with one tree.

3.Make a tent with one tree.

If you can not find two trees away, you can make the tent differently with one tree. You will need stakes and perforated fabric to put the stakes into it.

Using your rope, tie the corner of the fabrics to the tree.

Then gather the fabrics and fix it in the other corners of the ground.

If you have other fabrics, you can put it on the floor under the ceiling.

Use the same stakes to attach the two fabrics together, in the corner. After that, take an additional stake to install a tarpaulin corner of the ground that is closest to the tree.
