While celebrations at restaurants, clubs, hotels and private homes are the usual venues for birthday parties, renting a tent for a birthday party ensures that you are creating a completely original setting for your event. When decorating the inside of a tent, you are truly bound by nothing, and a wide range of decorating ideas and themes is totally possible for the inside of the tent.

Traditional Decor

Just because you're using a tent doesn't mean you have to forgo traditional birthday decorations. The tent acts as a suitable blank canvas for customary birthday decor, as a tent has a quantity of open space as well as accessible ceilings and walls. Cover the tent poles in balloons so that the poles are completely concealed and look like massive balloon columns. Spiral streamers and run them in zigzags along the ceiling of the tent. Wrap coloured Christmas lights around each table and sprinkle the tabletops with confetti. Hang a disco ball from the middle of the tent's ceiling, and the environment will feel ripe for a party.

Tuscan-themed Party

A large tent with a slatted roof is the perfect foundation for a Tuscan-themed birthday party. The decor of this tent should make people think of the slightly sloping hills, quaint farmhouses and tidy vineyards of Tuscany. In order to replicate this atmosphere in your tent, wrap silk grapevines around the gridwork of your tent in a loose fashion so that the grapevines hang down a bit. Add silk flowers to the grapevines in a warm shade such as red or yellow. Establish warm lighting inside the tent as well by having candlelit tables and strands of bistro lights draped at strategic places around the tent. Use place settings that have warm, rich colours, such as yellow, red or even sage, and set out thick, textured linens.

Beach Birthday

A tent is sometimes necessary for a beach birthday party because, while it's warm during the day, the temperature at the beach at night can drop dramatically. This, coupled with strong winds off the ocean, can make for a chilly celebration unless you have a tent. To continue the beach theme, drape the poles with sand-coloured or aqua chiffon. Hot-glue seashells onto the chiffon. Instead of white or cream-coloured tablecloths, cover the tables with blue or turquoise pieces of flowing fabric that are evocative of ocean waves. Instead of a floral centrepiece at each table, make one yourself using plastic crabs, fish and coral. Hang a decorative mermaid from the ceiling for an eye-catching display.
