When planning fun activities for children bouncehouses always seem to end up at the top of the list. The ever present questions is, do I rent or purchase a bouncer? Renting can has the benefit of not having to store or maintain the bouncer.  Renting also offers larger bouncers and more options for your fun. Purchasing a bouncer give you the peace of mind knowing that you are in control of the product you are going to use. Check out the list of pros and cons below and make the decision for yourself! 

Pros & Cons of Renting a Bouncer

Pros

  • Less Stress: A Bouncer rental company will come and setup the bouncer and in some cases leave a safety operator so you don't have to worry about watching the kids.
  • Commercial Grade: Rental Bouncers are all commercial grade vinyl which means they are larger and offer much more space for bouncing.
  • Insurance: Many homeowners insurance policies do not cover injuries on the property. A commercial bouncer company is required to carry insurance for up to 1 million dollars.

Cons

  • Size: Sometimes  commercial bouncers are too tall to fit into back yards. The average size is 15ft by 15ft by 15ft.
  • Cost: Commercial bouncers can cost more than the ones you can purchase at sam's club or walmart.
  • Scheduling: On busier weekends such as holidays, bouncer rental companies are extremely busy and may not have one available.

Pros & Cons of Buying a Bouncer

Pros

  • Less Space: Bouncers available for purchase are much smaller than the commercial ones. This means less item to put in storage
  • Less to Clean: Bouncers for purchase are smaller yet offer much less surface area to clean. This means you can keep it cleaner for longer.
  • Cost: Smaller bouncers can be purchased for as little as $200.00 but remember what you are saving in money, you are giving up in durability and sustainability.

Cons

  • Less Safety: Many bouncers available for purchase are less safe than commercial bouncers. Some do not even have tie downs available to anchor the bouncer to the ground.
  • Smaller Bouncing Area: Bouncers for purchase have a smaller bouncing area meaning less kids can bounce and more kids to manage in line.
  • No Warranty: Most bouncers for purchase come with a limited warranty that covers damage when first opened only.

The Choice is Yours but we Suggest you just call us.

Executive Events & Entertainment: Cleveland and Painesville Bouncehouse and Party Rental Company. We Offer Photobooths, Mechanical Bulls, and More.
 
 
    Recently we have come across a few apps that we find can be super helpful in planning any party. Planning a party can be difficult and with all the factors to consider from food to entertainment it would be nice to have something that organizes all that information for you. Good news, here at Executive Events & Entertainment, we sent our cronies out onto the web and found some awesome party planning apps. Check out the following apps and who knows, perhaps one will help you plan your next party or event. Also, all these apps can be found in the Android and Apple App stores. 

Pro Party Planner

Picture
Perhaps one of the more complete party planner apps; Party Planner Pro will allow you to enter in all the details from the amount of guests to the floor space of the room you are throwing the party in. This app will calculate how much food you will need and will even offer suggestions on how you can save money in different areas of the party like food and venue selection. Party Planner Pro even has a holiday section which will help you plan gift giving, thanksgiving dinner, and new years intoxicant acquisition.  Check out the video below.

PitchIn

It is nearly impossible to have busy people step up and help, get your party started even if they’re your friends. The PitchIn app makes it easy to split up and delegate tasks.  You’re notified when someone accepts a task and also when the task is completed. If you’re planning an event for which you aren’t footing the bill, PitchIn will send automatic payment reminders to guests! This app really makes setting up your own party fast, easy, and a little less stressful.
For the sake of ease we will stop our list of party planning apps there. We urge you to check out all of the available apps on your app purchasing platform. Who knows, perhaps there will be a party planning app from 3E in the future. In any sense, having an electronic application that helps keeps all your party information in one place is a priceless tool. Watch the videos and see how these apps can alleviate some stress when you plan your next party or event. Or, you can give us a call and we will bring the party to you with some of our awesome Bouncers, Carnival Games, Photobooths, or Mechanical Bull Rental
 
 
Planning a party for kids can be tough. Children nowadays are not satisfied with a simple party laden with cake and presents, they want something more. They want themes!  Planning a themed party is not easy. You have to consider the likes and dislikes of the party attendees. You want to choose a theme that will be inviting to all the kids at the party not just a select few. Planned appropriately, a themed party can transport your guests into an entirely different world full of wonderment! How do you achieve this effect? Follow our Checklist to planning an awesome themed party.

Themed Party Checklist

  • The Theme: Choose a theme that best fits the crowd attending the party.
  • Simplicity: Keep the theme simple. No one should have to ask what the theme of your party is.
  • Props: Props are very important. They can set the tone for your party and are the main component that conveys your theme to the guests. Incorporate props where you can. A few good places to place props are the food tables, dining tables, corners of the party room, party room entrance, and on the stage (if one is available.) Props can be anything from furniture to unique serving dishes.
  • Party Favors: Nothing helps bolster a theme more than party favors. Party favors can be anything from candy & toys to gadgets & literature.
  • Maintain the Theme: This is perhaps the most important part of planning a themed party. Keep the theme consistent across all areas of the party from the party favors & fun activities (like Themed Bouncer Rentals like those featured above) all the way down to the food.

Overwhelmed?

Is the magnitude of your party overwhelming your attempts at planning? Do not worry there is help. There are three kinds of rental companies.services all of which have different ways of planning parties and charging for their services. Check out the list below to see the advantages and disadvantages of the different rental companies.
  • Party Rental Companies: These are companies which offer various fun activities and party supplies. The fun activities usually include carnival games, inflatables, and digital gaming. You have to be careful which party rental company you choose. Many of them are just rental companies which offer a list of items which they will drop off at your party and that is it. They key to using a party rental company is to find one that provides free party planning services. Places like Executive Events & Entertainment (shameless promotion) will take your event details/needs and discuss what they can do to achieve the level of "party"  you want. The most important and perhaps most pertinent point worth mention is that party rental companies own the equipment they are bringing to you. This means that they can keep the cost to you very low.
  • Party Planning Companies: Party planners are in a category all their own. They can be the most stress free way of throwing a party because they will try and take care of as much of the details as possible for you. They will book entertainment, foods, and party props. Some party planners will even help decorate for the party! The advantage to a party planner is that they have exposure to a multitude of themes so their expertise can help you expand on yours. The major disadvantage to using a party planner is the cost. Many party planning services do not own the items they offer. Instead they use a network of companies which provide the items to the planner or deliver them directly to the party. This translates into more cost for you. Since the planner is being charged by the party rental company, the planner has to inflate their prices slightly in order to turn a profit off of the party. While you cannot blame the party planner for this (this is just how the industry works, not everyone has space to store a bunch of props and bouncehouses) it does end up raising the cost of your party.   

Ultimately, The Choice is Yours!

Cleveland Photobooth Rental
No party is complete without a photographic memento for the guests to take home. The question arises, what kind of photo gift will you offer? There are two main kinds of Photobooths; the Photobooth and the Photo Station. You may be asking, "what's the difference?". Check out the following article for the pros and cons of both types of photo gifts and how you can use them to generate more buzz about your party.

The Photobooth

    A Photobooth is a self standing machine that usually has a privacy curtain.  The first commercial photobooth was made by Anatol Josepho in New York City. For 25 cents a citizen in 1920s New York can enter Josepho's private booth and take quality photos on an 8 x 8 strip. The photo developed and printed right inside the booth. Josepho's design was later replaced by the 900lb behemoth from the Auto-Photo company. Since Josepho Photobooths have gained in popularity and can now be seen at many weddings, bar mitzvahs and other celebratory events across the world.  

Pros

  • Privacy
  • Simple User Interface
  • time tested methods of printing
  • Uses an actual camera

Cons

  • Small camera frame
  • prints only in strips
  • Bulky & Heavy (up to 900lbs)
  • Cannot be used Outdoors!
  • Print time is up to 2 minutes

The Photo Station

Recent developments in computer technology have allowed for vast leaps in the area of photobooth technology. We no longer can simply refer to them as just booths. Now there are many more options when taking a photo that it would be more accurate to refer to them as Photo Stations. A standard photobooth now consists of a collapsible, lightweight, and completely private booth made from either pipe and drapes or a small custom made tent. The real camera has been replaced by a webcam and HD printer. Another added feature is the use of a computer interface that changes the effect on the photo. There are many more options now than just plain color or black & white. For a few extra bucks you can even have a green screen where you can put your own background in the photo. Have your guests taking their pictures in front of the eiffel tower or standing at the feet of the great sphinx.

Pros

  • Lightweight (200lbs total)
  • Full HD Camera
  • Simple User Interface
  • Quick Printing (about 15 seconds)
  • Multiple Effects: Pop Art, Sepia, Color, Etc..
  • Customizable Background

Cons

  • More Setup Required
  • Requires more cording
  • Requires more electricity to operate
  • Printer and Booth are Separate Units.

awesome party rentals
We are proud to introduce a new item that has been taking the party rental scene by storm, the Hydroblaster! This versatile game will have your party guests competing for hours. The object is to, using the pump, pump up the balloon over your opponent's head until it pops. First one to soak their rival wins! This is a perfect summertime game that will fit into any backyard r party space.

You may be asking, what if I want to use it indoors? Do I still have to hookup to water? While having the balloons fill with water and pop all over the opposing team, this game does have a dry option. You can fill the balloons with anything from confetti to glitter. The game works the same whether hooked up to water or not! This means you can take this game virtually anywhere.
