Why Not Host a Vegetarian Awareness Month Event Inside of a Party Tent?

Vegetarian Awareness Month is in full swing throughout the nation. As such, why not throw an impromptu dinner inside of a first-classparty tentand join in on the special occasion? We know of a few tips that will help make planning the event even easier than shelling peas:

Do remember to print off some complimentary pledge cards and posters from the North American Vegetarian Society. They make great additions to environmentally friendly goodie bags. Plus, you might want to include a list of the vendors participating in your local, winter farmers market with the pledge cards. That way, attendees may be encouraged to go shopping for farm fresh produce once the holiday party ends.

Dont forget to incorporate eco-friendly tablescapes, linens and decorations into your Vegetarian Awareness Month plans. For example, you might want to use placemats decorated with vegetable dye block patterns or table clothes that feature images of seasonal produce. Good places to look for such items are online sites like Etsy, Zazzle and Rakuten. There are also soy candles, zero waste lunch trays and drinkware made from recycled products available for purchase through many of the same shopping sites.

Do think about downloading a few songs about vegetarianism and playing them at your holiday party too. A few fun ones to consider are the Beach Boys tune,Vegetablesand Frank Zappas song,Call Any Vegetable. Both are a little on the silly side. So even the youngest children in attendance are likely to enjoy singing along to the two songs.

Dont stress yourself out by trying to cook up a bushel basket full of vegetarian dishes or make crudits platters for a crowd. Instead, opt to contact a local restaurant and have the event catered. Many should have plenty of vegetarian options available to fill your holiday table. Among those to consider are veggie rolls, edamame dumplings, various salads, tofu and gluten-free rice.

Party Tents Make Perfect Natl Hispanic American Month Celebrations Possible

party tentGet ready to set up the colorful party tents and dance floors. Its almost time to celebrate National Hispanic Heritage Month. Its been taking place each year, from mid September until mid October, since 1988. Prior to that, it was only a weeklong celebration. So here are a few fiesta planning ideas to help you keep the party going all month long:

The extended event, in part, is designed to recognize Spanish speaking cultures found in North America, South America, Europe and the Caribbean Islands. As such, a great way to keep the fiesta going is to highlight a different country each day. At present, there are 21 countries that recognize Spanish as their national language and many more where it is simply spoken.

Given that, dividing the countries up into groups by continent or hemisphere and setting up booths under one large party tent may simplify that planning process. Another option would be to set up more than one tent and highlight different areas inside of each one. If you do decide to go with the multiple, party tent option, consider choosing ones that match the various countries flags.

For example, the flag of Cuba is known to contain sections of white, red and blue. We have decorative party tents that feature solid blue tops as well as those with blue and white stripes. The blue and white stripes are similar to those found on the countrys flag. Once those tents are set up, you could decorate their perimeters with replicas of the flag or white star lights and red, triangular shaped flags. The party tents interiors, on the other hand, could be outfitted with matching chair and table linens.

To uncover more party tents that could be used during National Hispanic Month celebrations, please contact us today. Custom models are available. Just make sure that you allow for enough advance notice.
