The Bills are Going Bigger & Better
Hank Parker's Party & Tent Rental has built a lasting relationship with the Buffalo Bills for the past 15 years and counting. This year, we did things a little differently...
As you can see in the picture above, we specially crafted a structure tent for the Bills Training Camp at St. John Fisher in Henrietta, NY. This type of structure allows fans to watch at a bird's eye view - in VIP style.
We also created what is called a PALAS structure tent to hold merchandise that the fans can purchase in comfort and awe. This is unlike any tent you've been in before: spacious and carpeted, with A/C.
We can go from small and intimate to grand and spectacular! Whatever size your event is - we are happy to help. Call today for more information on structure tents and see if we can assist you for your next event!
Don't Let the Rain Put a Damper on Your Day
Instead of getting caught in the rain, be prepared. If you're looking in to a beautiful white or clear tent wedding - or already have one reserved - it is vital to be mindful of inclement weather. No worries - we've got you covered. Below we will show you some tips and tricks to make your day shine.
Walkways - Protect your guests' clothes and ask us about your options including building a walkway from one area to another to keep the rain out. It's easier than you think! Call today and we can set up a free inspection right at your home or venue. Below, is an example of what yours could look like.
Hank Parker's Pagoda Tents Featured at the 112th U.S. Open Polo Championship
The International Polo Club Palm Beach in Wellington, Florida, home to the most prestigious polo tournaments in the United States, was also home to two of Hank Parker's Pagoda tents at this year's U.S. Open Polo Championship. Our Pagoda tents add a sophisticated, European flair and were the perfect solution to house two key areas at the event, media and merchandise. The Pagoda offers an attractive tent architecture featuring a classic high-peak and the highest quality materials. Aside from its appearance, the Pagodas are engineered to withstand 75+ mph winds and are extremely weather resistant.
As the leading full-service, turnkey rental company in the nation, Hank Parker's also has an extensive inventory of furnishings to perfectly transform any space. At the Polo Championship, we provided a tailor-made experience within the tents, including flooring, custom carpeting, lighting, charging stations, wifi hotspots, a variety of tables, chairs and custom branding to bring the space to life.

Make Your Celebration One to Remember with a Sperry Tent!
When it comes to planning your summer wedding or event, one of the most important aspects of the décor is the tent your guests will be mingling and dancing beneath. For individuals looking to stand out from the sea of conventional vinyl tents, renting a Sperry Tent is a wonderful way to do so. Handcrafted with genuine sailcloth and raised to new heights with its beautiful sailed peaks, your Sperry Tent will glisten in the sun, creating a charming and unique appearance your guests will love.
One of the things we love most about Sperry Tents is that they are made entirely in the USA with expert craftsmanship. From their hand-stitched panels to the hand-milled pine beams, everything about your Sperry Tent is a step above the ordinary!
Thanks to the beautiful, pillared design of a Sperry Tent, there is an array of unique and exciting lighting options for you to consider. String lights are often hung around the tent's perimeter, creating an ethereal appearance. Chandeliers and lanterns can also be hung from the ceiling of the tent for an intimate glow or a whimsical ambiance beneath your canopy. Sperry tents are translucent which allows light to shine through. This picture is a beautiful example of custom design lighting being used.
Level out the ground beneath your tent and provide your guests with a space to dance with wood or carpeted flooring. Depending on the event style you are looking to create, your Sperry Tent can easily be transformed to work with different flooring styles, creating an indoor escape from the elements.
Whether you envision a relaxed seaside escape or a chic and modern lounge beneath your Sperry Tent, the furniture possibilities are endless. With a charming, handcrafted design, your sailcloth tent can be accessorized to work with almost any furniture style; a unique and elegant addition to any festivity.
Keep guests warm during the brisk spring nights cool during the hot summer days with heating and air conditioning inside your Sperry Tent. Beautiful, clear sidewalls can also be added to maintain the proper ambiance and environment within your tent, as can canvas walls - great for catering tents and surprise parties!
The perfect way to make a grand entrance (and exit) at your wedding reception, covered walkways can be accessorized to match your décor, glimmering with strings of lights, overflowing with flowers and sparkling with beautiful ivory sailcloth.
Stylish, unique and customizable with lighting, flooring, furniture and accessories, your Sperry Tent will create a gorgeous and memorable backdrop for your special celebration! All Season Party & Tent Rentals and Hank Parker's Party & Tent Rentals are happy to provide our customers with Sperry Tent rentals. To learn more about your tent options, give us a call at 866-604-2629 or visit theshowroom location nearest you.

Hank Parker's Celebrates the Wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Ryan
Married at Miller Nurseries on Canandaigua Lake, Lauren Sands and James Ryan III hosted an intimate and enchanting fall wedding. Featured on The Knot, the couple's big day appeared like a scene out of a fairy tale. Here at Hank Parker Party & Tent Rentals we are excited to say that we were able to help make the couple's dream wedding a reality.
After an outdoor ceremony held beneath a whimsical arch, the guests headed across the nursery to a reception held beneath a clearspan clear top tent, where they could take in the beauty of the stars and sky as they dined and dance with the newlyweds. From the rustic wood flooring and balcony to the romantic hanging lights and candles, we were able to create a dreamlike backdrop to accent the bride's ethereal image.
Guests entered through two large barn doors into a garden featuring a custom built fireplace by Hank Parker's and eclectic artwork. All fifteen tables were accented with glass tableware and tiny gold animal figurines to mark the seats. Draping was hung and heaters were provided on the balcony to create a cozy and amorous atmosphere around the outdoor bar.
Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Ryan and thank you for choosing Hank Parker Party & Tent Rentals to help make your fantasy a reality!
Hank Parker's Is The Tent Provider Of The Buffalo Bills
Feel The Rush. That's the 2015 slogan for the Buffalo Bills, and after all of their off-season moves, who among us was not excited for training camp and the season to start?
Although it's easy to feel the adrenaline rush percolating through the stands at training camp, it also doesn't take long to feel the weather conditions. Whether it's the sticky heat or a downpour of rain showers, having a tent conveniently nearby is must for large outdoor events in the summer.
Hank Parker's Party & Tent Rentals is proud to be the official tent provider of the Buffalo Bills. As part of our partnership with the Bills, we provide tents at their training camp site at St. John Fisher, including our expansive, state-of-the-art, double-decker tent that has provided multitudes of camp goers with a place to cool down away from the hot sun, and a place to stay dry when rain showers escape from the clouds. For more information about our partnership with the team, please check out this video at their website.
Our two-story tent is located alongside the field and is broken down into three quadrants to best serve the Bills' needs. One area is set aside for corporate partners and features a buffet downstairs and a viewing area with wonderful vantage points upstairs.
The second area is for family and friends of the Buffalo Bills while the third section is the community relationship area for the team. Each section has a viewing area upstairs and downstairs, and brings guests close to the action.
In addition, we also provide the spacious merchandise tent that visitors pass through ontheir way to watch practice and scrimmages, as well as the kid's area tent that is home to bounce houses and other exciting games for young fans to enjoy. Remember, we can provide your next outdoor event with the same tents (or smaller ones) that we showcase each year at St. John Fisher.
St. John Fisher and the Buffalo Bills do an unbelievable job of organizing training camp and making it as fan friendly as possible. Numerous national football writers have remarked that Fisher is one of their favorite stops on the training camp trail, and it's easy to see why.
Especially this year. Can't you feel the rush?

How to Plan a Fantastic Last-Minute Holiday Party
The holiday season is here and if you haven't already, now is definitely the time to start planning the most fabulous party ever! The best holiday parties are creative, entertaining and the venues are always adorned in the most festive decorations. Great food and awesome dance music is also necessary if you want your guests to remember this event for years to come.
Here are some suggestions for throwing the holiday party of the year that will leave all of your friends and family talking about it for years to come:
Make a List
Organization is key. Make lists of all of your ideas, and all of the vendors and supplies you will need to make it all happen. If you need help, now is the time to reach out and ask, so that you will know who is available. It is easiest to assign tasks and give yourself and everyone else a deadline. Remaining cool and as organized as possible will help planning your holiday bash run smoothly.
Contact Your Vendors
Throwing a huge holiday party will definitely require some major help from vendors. Decide if you will need extra seating and dining tables, tents, lighting, linens, and silverware. If you have a color theme, your vendor should know about this so that they can consult with you to pick out the perfect linens, plates, and other decorations for the event.
Buffet or Dinner Service
If you are having a more casual event where guests will participate, a buffet-styled dinner works just fine. You will need to discuss how many chafing dishes, warmers, portable ovens or grills you will need to accommodate your guest list and your menu. If your fabulous party is a more formal, sit-down event, let your vendor know that, too, and they will know exactly what equipment you will need and how many servers will be required to keep everyone happy and in the holiday spirit.
Consider Location and Weather
In many parts of the country like Western New York, it's a chilly, cold and snowy time of year; but if you dare to have a winter wonderland party, outdoor heating is an option. Consult with your vendor or Rental Company about ways you can keep your party tents warm during the event. With the proper tenting, warm candles and lighting, and a bit of warm mulled wine, the guests may not even notice the chill.
Create an Awesome Dance Floor
Creating an area under your tents designated for dancing, is a great way to get everyone on the dance floor. Speak with your vendors and let them know that you want an area just for dancing. With the proper flooring, space, and lighting, you can have a holiday disco installed in no time. Designated dance areas encourage guests to get up and do their thing, without worrying about not having enough space, or bumping into people. Ask your vendor and party planners to make sure that your dance floor is spacious enough for the latest line dances!
The Best Way to Spend Your Black Friday
Black Friday. It is the best and worst day of the year for shopping. Yes, you receive fantastic specials and, let's face it, the holidays aren't getting any further away; on the other hand, you have to wake up earlier than you do for work just to get to a mall (it's hard to go to the mall as it is) that is going to be wall-to-wall packed with crazies all ready to trample someone for the toy of the year!
It's exhausting just talking about it! We get it, though. Money is tight these days and especially if you're planning your wedding, you always have your eyes out for a good deal and new ways to get the best for your special day, but for less (so you can get more, of course). If this sounds like where your head is at this Black Friday, we have just the place for you. We promise it won't be as exhausting and stressful as the mall, either.
Come visit us at our East Amherst showroom this Black Friday (November 29, 2013) and take advantage of the hottest wedding promotions of the year! Save big on specialty tables and chairs, beautiful linens and so much more for your big day! RSVP to [email protected], call us at 716-688-9531 or visit our Facebook page invite by clicking below. Happy holiday/wedding shopping, everyone!
The Perfect Wedding Party Rentals [Infographic]
There are many elements that all come together to create a perfect event. No detail is wasted, no matter how small - especially at a wedding. Your wedding is a chance for you to hold an extravagant event for all your closest friends and family. There will certainly be other events you'll cater to throughout your life, but none as detailed as your wedding day. If you're planning a wedding now, or are expecting to in the future, it's important to know what kind of rentals you'll be investing in. Here are items that will fully enhance certain elements of your wedding day that you should be sure to consider:
Fine china -While some may think a plate is just something for your food to sit on, they are much more than just a seat for your meat. Chefs spend a lot of time deciding on the perfect plating and cutlery to present their masterful culinary creations on. The plates are essentially the canvas for their masterpieces. By investing in renting fine china and flatware, you're going to take your guests' dining experience to the next level.
Chairs and Furniture - To go with the dining experience, not only should you consider what you're putting in front of your guests, but what you're putting underneath them! The chairs and other furniture you rent are extremely important. There is, of course, the comfort factor; your guests are going to be sitting for an extended timeframe. The look is also important; you want your guests to feel like they're in a classy environment. The furniture is going to help create that atmosphere for you.
Lighting - To take the ambiance of your event up a notch, lighting is a necessity. Nothing sets the mood like lighting. It has the ability to transform the mood of any environment from a bright and uptight one, to a dark and intimate one.
Tents -We know all too well how important it is to rent a tent for any events. They're so versatile. Whether you're planning an outdoor wedding, or want to create your own custom event venue with an enclosed double-decker tent, it's no secret, tents have the ability to create an atmosphere for your event that your guests may have never seen before.
Even the smallest details go a long way when your wedding comes together. It doesn't matter if you're choosing your silverware or your venue, it's important to consider the big picture. Taking each aspect of the event and watching it all come seemlessly together to make the event a true and memorable success is a fun and rewarding experience for all involved! Happy wedding and event planning!
