If you're having a party or another type of large-scale event that will take place outdoors, it often makes sense to rent a floor. People often rent floors from their local party rental service if they plan to have dancing at some point in the evening, but a floor can be valuable even if dancing isn't on the agenda. It provides a solid, flat foundation for your tables, chairs, and guests. While a plain wooden floor might be your instinctive choice, many party rental companies have other options. Here are some reasons why you might want to rent a black-and-white checkered floor.
A Foundation For Jumbo Games
Depending on the nature of your event, you might want to have an area in which your guests can play games. If so, the black and white checkered floor can be a perfect foundation for some jumbo forms of entertainment. Rent a set of large chess pieces and another set of a large checkers. Your party rental company may even have these products available. You can then designate a certain corner of the floor for chess and checkers games, much to the delight of your attendees.
Help With Aligning Furniture
It can be challenging to properly set up tables and chairs in a large outdoor space and have everything look tidy. One thing that you'll appreciate about your black-and-white checkered floor is that the lines on the floor will help with the alignment of the furniture. For example, instead of struggling to get all of the tables in a straight line, you can use the lines on the floor as a guide — perhaps setting the left side of the table legs on the fourth line from the edge. This will help to give your space a professional appearance.
Fun For Dancing
The unique look of your rented floor will provide a fun and visually engaging foundation throughout your event, but you can also increase the fun if dancing is part of the evening's plans. This is especially true if children will be in attendance. Before the formal dancing part of the evening begins, consider having some dancing time for the children — and use the floor to your advantage. For example, your emcee can give commands for the children to follow — things like "Stand on a black square, and then jump to another black square." This type of interactive experience will be enjoyable for the kids.
