Popular Party Tent Decorating Ideas

White fairy lights, string lights, twinkle lights, or Christmas tree lights are popular when parties are expected to last into the evening hours. Play it safe and avoid stapling the lights to the tent fabric itself or you’ll risk incurring extra charges for damages.

Photo garlands, collages, or banners are another popular way to showcase the guest of honor. Choose photos from their childhood, college days, travels around the world, or other special events. Use scrapbooking patterned papers for a unique design or create a collage with simple poster board.

Create luminaries with bags and tea light candles to line a walkway to the evening party. Choose colored bags that coordinate with the bridal colors or use LED candles for an added safety feature.

Balloons are the perfect decoration for kiddie parties or elegant parties alike. Create a balloon arch for a Sweet 16 party, hang balloons on fishing line to outline the border of your party tent, or tie bunches of balloons together for another splash of color under the party tent.

As always, safety is a top priority so if you want to hang decorations or lighting under our tents, please let us know the size and weight so we can give you approval. Likewise, keep sterno candles and centerpiece candles away from tent sidewalls to avoid accidents.

4 Thoughts on “Party Tent Decorating Ideas”

  • I love the first birthday party pin that you put. Party rentals are great for tents and stuff like that but decorating is still frustrating for me. Just doing some bright colored balloons really makes a difference though, thanks for sharing.

    • Thanks Olivia! It’s amazing what balloons can do for a party, isn’t it? They’re one of my favorite things to use and have mostly seen them as centerpieces on tables. I would love to learn how to make those balloon arches that you can find on Pinterest, too!

  • I really love the idea of decorating a tent with lights and photos. My sister and I are organizing a family event, and we are renting a tent for it. We are going to decorate it ourselves, and we may borrow some of your ideas 🙂 Thanks for inspiration!

    • Hey Daniela! Thanks so much for your kind comment. Glad we could give you some inspiration for your own party!
