January 15, 2010, Newsletter Issue #103: Party tents: Backyard barbecues will be easier with a party tent

Tip of the Week

For your next backyard barbeque, use a canopy to provide shade, warmth and a rest area for guests. Canopies and shade tents come in a variety of sizes and you can choose the best size for the amount of people you're having. For a group of 30 people or less, choose a 10 x 20 canopy. For 40 people you need a party tent that is about 20x20. There are a variety of types avaialable. You should allow for about 10' around the perimeter of the tent so you'll need about 30x30 for proper set up. A smaller area will work but you'll need to make adjustments. Be sure to check for trees that might be hanging low branches or any home fixtures that would interfere with your set up.
