Graduation Party Essentials!

Posted on: March 25th, 2017

We here at Michael’s Party Rentals have seen our fair share of graduation parties. Over the years, we have noticed a pattern of items we just can’t seem to keep on our shelves during the graduation season. We understand that it’s hard to work full-time and plan a graduation party so we want to do the leg work for you! Below are some items you should consider for your grad’s party!

20x40-backyard

The essentials:

A Tent: Rain or shine, protect your guests from New England weather

a 20×20 is advised for 40 guests
A 20×30 is advised for 60 guests
A 20×40 is advised for 80 guests
(These numbers are based off just 8ft banquet tables and chairs under the tent. If you are planning on have a buffet, DJ, or dance floor, you may need a bigger tent. Please call 413-589-7368 for questions on sizing.)

Chairs:

Our cheapest chair is our brown folding chair, from there we have a beige folding, a white folding, a white padded garden chair and a black padded garden chair.

Canopy 1

Tables:

We have round or banquet tables to choose from in a variety of sizes. Our two most popular size tables for grad parties are our 8′ banquet table and our 60″ round table. Both of these can fit 8 guests comfortably. You can fit more banquet tables under a tent then you can rounds. We also have 42″ tall cocktail tables. Please check out our webpage for more details.

Kwik Covers 4

The Accessories:

Kwik Cover: You can cover tables easily with kwik covers. They are available in 14 colors. (Instead of using basic white, get the graduate’s school colors.)

Fill and Chill Table: They are perfect to keep your beverages cool but easily accessible. You can also use it to keep you pasta and potato salads chilled.

A Grill: The majority of home owners own a grill. However if you don’t or you need a bigger one, we can help you out!

Helium Tanks: You can decorate your house or yard with balloons. We rent helium tanks, but beware, they do book up fast during graduation season.

Fans: New England weather is unpredictable and if it’s a hot one, let us bring some pedestal fans to keep your guests cool!

Chafing Dishes: Don’t have the tools to keep the food to temp? Rent some chafing dishes. We even offer the hotel pans and the sternos! 

Market Umbrellas: Looking for alternative ideas to create shade? Our umbrellas are 9′ wide and are perfect to scatter through out your yard or patio.
