Essential Equipment Every Successful Party Should Have

Planning your next big event in Colorado? There’s a lot to consider, and sometimes it can be confusing to decide which rentals are essential and which ones you can skip. If you’re having trouble figuring out what you need to make your guests happy, take a look at this quick guide on what to rent for parties.

Popular Choices

Chairs and Seating

Creative layout at event

Make sure every type of seating and table serves a purpose.

No matter how much you think your guests are going to stand and dance, they’ll eventually need to sit down. If you don’t have enough comfortable furniture for guests, expect everyone to leave early. Make sure you have enough chairs to seat everyone in attendance.

Climate Control

There’s nothing worse than feeling uncomfortable because the party venue is boiling hot. If your reception hall lacks substantial airflow, head to your party equipment rental provider and rent out a few fans. Are you planning on hosting an outdoor venue? Save your guest from a chilly night by providing them a few heat lamps to stand around.

Food Serving Equipment

Whether you make your own catering order or hire an in-venue food service, you’ll need serving tables and serving platters. Make sure you have plenty of equipment for your foodservice stations — chafers, stands, and serving utensils are all required if you’re planning on serving food to your guests, buffet style.


Make sure you rent out enough dinnerware for all of your guests! You should have at least enough place settings to accommodate everyone on your guest list, though it’s a good idea to have a few extra settings stashed away. If you’re planning on using a buffet, rent 30% more plates and utensils than you might need, in case guests decide to get rid of their plates and decide to go back for seconds.
