Summer and Festival Season has Arrived!!!
Forget boring white and bring color to your outdoor festivities with a brightly hued tent instead! These colorful tents are sure to be a conversation piece. 
Strategically placed tables and seating add to the allure of the tent during the day and dim lighting will make the colors glow in the evening.

Festival Food

Food on a stick is a given during any festival so for your next event spice it up by presenting it in a beautiful and unique way.  Get creative by displaying culinary bites in a grassy “food” patch along with dipping sauces presented in edible dishes like this hollowed out pepper.
The food can be simple like the fried catfish shown here. It’s the presentation that makes it fun.

Flavorful Fusion Feasts

Festival flavored drinks like margaritas and beer are staples during the summer. Why not fuse the two into a margarita shandy for a new flavor twist?
INGREDIENTS1 (12 ounce) can frozen limeade concentrate

8 ounces reposado tequila

12 ounces water

1 lime, thinly sliced

24 ounces lager or pilsner, chilled

Optional: kosher salt for rimming glasses


  1. In a large pitcher, combine limeade concentrate, tequila, and water. Stir until limeade is dissolved. Chill if desired, up to 6 hours, or proceed immediately to next step.
  2. Just prior to serving, fill pitcher with ice, lime slices, and beer. Serve in salt-rimmed glasses if desired.

Photo booths may seem overdone at festivals, so why not over do it a step more and get the full 360 degree shot like this 360 degree photo booth. Guests can get crazy at every angle and print either their best side or a panoramic selfie.
