In addition to providing our wide selection of tents, we work with our costumers to provide the best products and services available in Virginia.

1. Anticipate more numbers than what you are planning for.
2. Making a list that you need for an event to keep track of what you have chosen and quanity.
3. Delegate the simple so you can focus on the important items.
From a simple 10' by 10' tent on your deck to benches and tables in the backyard, we can transform your party to accommodate any number of people rather than cramming eveyone into your house. We can even setup outdoor lighting to keep the party going strong even after dark. Call and speak with one of our special event consultants to find out more.
