Over the last two years, people have become more creative with how they spend time at home. Because of that, we’ve seen an increase in the sale of party tents - and people aren’t just using them for parties anymore!

We love how creative our customers get with the party tents they purchase from us. If you’ve been looking to invest in a party tent, but aren’t sure how you’re going to use it after the party is over, check out this article. 

We’ve listed all sorts of ideas, from using it as a shelter for your car to lending it out to your community. Anything it takes to put your investment to good use. 

5 Unexpected Uses

Did you know that party tents are often white because white stays cool, it’s easy to clean, it’s versatile, and it provides plenty of decoration options? That’s why!

Now that we’ve gone over why white is the best color for your party tent, let’s discuss those five unexpected uses, and what tents from Party Tents Direct suit each situation best.

1. A Private Movie Theater (Pole Tent)

Create an unbeatable ambiance on a balmy summer or fall night with an outdoor movie theater that you can share with friends. The only thing you’ll need to buy is the snacks, because the side of your white tent can act as the projection screen! Your party tent can create a cozy, private spot for you to spend an evening with your loved ones - just remember to bring the bug spray. 

If you and your crew aren’t into movies, a party tent can also double as a karaoke stage. Set up your equipment at the front and enjoy a song-filled night that no one will soon forget.

2. Yard Sales (West Coast Frame Tent or Speedy Pop-Up Tent, depending on size of sale)

If you have a bunch of stuff that you have no use for, but that’s too good to throw away, your first instinct might be to have a garage sale. But what if you don’t have a garage that’s big enough, or a garage at all? Well, if you have a party tent, your answer is right there. 

Just set up your tent in the front yard and lay out the items you want to sell in an organized, alluring fashion. Then, all you have to do is wait for the shoppers to arrive! 

Placing your yard sale items under your party tent offers great protection from the weather. It would be heartbreaking to put all of that work into your sale only to have your belongings get rained on and ruined. Plus, if the sun is beating down, the tent can protect you from getting overheated.

3. Carport (High Peak Frame Tent)

If you care about your car, you probably want to keep it safe from the elements. But not everyone lives in a house with a garage, so their only option is to park the car in the driveway and hope that no hailstorms come by. 

A party tent has what you need in order to solve this problem. It creates a canopy over your car, sheltering it from rain, wind, snow, and hail (as long as the hail isn’t giant). A carport tent can be a great comfort for those who are looking for a bit of extra protection for their vehicle. With a big enough party tent, you might even be able to park two cars underneath it! 

4. Tailgating (Speedy Pop-Up Tent)

If you’re a frequent tailgater, you know how unpleasant it is to tailgate in the rain or in super-cold weather. But, since you’re a dedicated fan, nothing can keep you away from the game. We have a way that you can show your loyalty to your team while remaining comfortable at the same time. 

Just bring a small or medium sized party tent along with you, and you’ll be sheltered from the elements and supplied with a warm, dry place to gather.

5. Donating/Lending (any size)

If none of these options appeal to you, we understand and that’s okay. Since someone will always have a use for your party tent, you have the choice to donate it or lend it out to your community for events. There’s no doubt that your community officials will be grateful for one less party item to buy, and you’ll get that warm, fuzzy feeling that comes with doing a good deed.
