Hosting a Canada Day celebration shouldn’t be stressful. It’s a birthday party that everyone can enjoy, and you don’t have to bring a gift.
But if you feel like you have no idea where to start, party planning can feel hectic. When you’re planning your big Canada Day party for your office or community, it can be hard to figure out what items you should get. You also don’t want to buy expensive niche items that are only going to sit in storage for a year until you need them again. That giant indoor beanbag toss with a Canada leaf on it only works for so many occasions.
Whether it’s your first or fifteenth time hosting, Gervais Party & Tent Rentals has you covered for all your event needs. With us on your side, you can get rid of the pre-party jitters and grab the BBQ spatula because it’s time for Canada’s birthday.
Here are four definite must-haves for any Canada Day get-together.
- Propane & BBQ Accessories
Nobody is going to come to a celebration of this scale if there’s not food promised. Freshly grilled ribs, steaks, hotdogs, hamburgers, and kabobs will make your event a success.
A propane BBQ is an essential item for any good Canada Day celebration.
If you don’t have a grill of your own, you can rent this high-quality BBQ for less than what you’ll spend on drinks and refreshments.
Don’t let anyone leave hungry by providing for everyone’s dietary needs. Gervais offers a kosher-only BBQ and a deluxe BBQ with two chambers, which is perfect for veggies on one side and meat on the other.
While you’re renting the BBQ, make it easy on yourself and get propane and grilling utensils as well. That way, you won’t have to worry about tracking down who lent them to you. You can conveniently pick up and return your BBQ essentials from one location.
- Coolers & Ice
Warm soda, water, or beer on a hot July day? That doesn’t say party. You can keep your coworkers, friends, family, town constituents, or other guests hydrated all day with cool beverages stored in an ice cooler with 26 lbs of ice.
Gervais Party & Tent Rentals makes it convenient for you to rent the cooler and buy the ice from the same location at the same time. You don’t have to go out of your way to pick up the ice after getting the cooler, and it’s one less thing to worry about while planning your event.
- Garbage Cans
A garbage can may not be the first thing you think of when planning a Canada Day celebration, but you’ll certainly regret not having one when you’re cleaning up. After going through all the preparations, from the decor to the food, the one thing you may have missed is also the most vital.
Nothing is worse than being caught at the end of the day without enough receptacles to deal with the aftermath of a party. Or worse, it’s 10 minutes into the party, someone asks you where the garbage is, and you realize you’ve made a big mistake.
Keep the park, community space, or office parking lot clean all day by renting enough garbage cans. Trust us; it’s the essential item for any party.
You, your coworkers, friends, and family may have plans for the day, but the weather won’t always adhere to them. No matter what the forecast says about the chance of rain, you can bet that the weather is going to do whatever it wants. You can’t postpone Canada Day for a day with better weather, so you need to be prepared. Note: we do not recommend that anyone stand in / under a tent when lighting or high winds occur.
Don’t take a chance and make sure your Canada Day celebration goes on, rain or shine, with a tent. Whether you need a tent for 40, 480, or any number of people in between, Gervais Party & Tent Rentals offers premium tent rentals with plenty of options to choose from. With the tent’s high canopy roof and options for clear plastic side coverings, you can be protected from the elements and still enjoy a spacious and comfortable set up.
Make Canada’s birthday the best one yet by holding a great event with the right items for your family, coworkers, community, and friends.
