Throwing An Outdoor Party? Keep These 3 Tips in Mind

Tent and party rentals

Throwing an outdoor party is a lot of work and can actually be extremely stressful if you aren’t prepared. Outdoor events if you successfully prepare, on the other hand, can be great fun for everyone involved.

Here are a few tips to help you plan your outdoor party and make sure it’s a blast.

Party Rentals

Tent rentals and other party rental equipment are often ignored during the outdoor planning process, but they can help ensure protection and fun for all your guests. No matter the weather, if you’re throwing an outdoor party, you’ll need to have some sort of shelter. There are special party rental companies that can assist you with all your rental equipment needs. It’s wise to contact them prior to any party planning.

Plan, Plan, and Plan Everything

It’s essential that you do not try and wing any part of your planning process because one mistake can lead to mass confusion, which could potentially ruin the entire party. Try and figure out at least a rough estimate of how many people will be attending. Once you determine how many people will be there, you can start planning other aspects of your party. You’ll be able to start figuring out how much space you’ll need, which is important to know whether you’re hosting the party on your own property or a rented space.

Don’t Try to Cook for Everyone

A common outdoor party mistake is attempting to cook enough food for all your guests yourself. Don’t even bother trying because you will just stress yourself out even more than you already are. Encourage all your guests to bring a dish to pass. Obviously you’re still responsible for providing the majority of the food and beverages, but it’s unfair for your guests to expect you to provide for everyone. Putting out a few sandwich platters and other little snacks is more than enough for your part and have your guests bring a few entrees and deserts.

Despite the importance of planning everything, it’s just as important to not overdo it and stress yourself out more than you need to.

Top Five Tips For Creating The Ultimate Home Entertainment System

Home entertainment lexington ky

How’s your home theater looking? It can be a little disheartening not having all the latest toys to look forward to when coming back from a long day at work or school. Thankfully, home automation systems have never been easier to cobble together — whether you’re into movies or prefer to play videogames online with friends, a little research and a proactive mind can give you the home entertainment system you’ve always wanted. Below are the top five tips to putting together the ideal home automation systems.

Know Your Goal

Did you know there are nearly four million Hulu subscribers? Additional studies have revealed a whopping 38 million people have watched Hulu at least once, if not a few times, in the past year. A good entertainment system is one that knows what it wants to be. If that means helping you address your proverbial sweet tooth, then so be it! For those interested in videogames, a strong Internet connection is a must-have so you can spend more time enjoying competitive multiplayer instead of slogging through lost connections.

Be Familiar With Different Options

Hulu isn’t the only major film source, however. There are nearly 64 million Netflix subscribers, with 30% of Internet traffic during peak hours coming from people watching Netflix movies, shows and documentaries. Nearly three-quarters of TV streamers (nearly 74%) say they have positive feelings toward binge streaming television while 76% of TV streamers say watching multiple episodes of their favorite television show is a welcome respite from their busy week.

Save Money

According to ongoing surveys, the average household energy bill is around $110 per month. That’s pretty high! With home automation systems you can save around 15% every month, adding up to nearly $20 per month or around $200 per year. This is due to the interconnected nature of home automation systems rerouting energy in a more efficient manner, making sure everyone’s happy at the end of the day!

Stay Secure

Home entertainment is pretty expensive. The last thing you want is to lose all that hard work! Smart-home security and safety systems have represented the second-largest service market by revenue for the past few years, expecting to top most industries by 2017. Studies have shown people will, on average, save around 20% on their insurance with a home automation system than the alternative — that totals to at least $1,000 extra per year.

Get Started

Putting together a flexible and up-to-date home entertainment system isn’t as hard as it looks. One of the most important elements is a powerful Internet connection and strong reception, vital for streaming films, videogames and shows alike. Staying comfortable is often high on people’s priority list, too — around 44% of participants in a survey said they had recently been to a theater with cushy recliner seats and wanted to add it in their own home. According to the latest available data, the sales of home theater-in-a-box systems have reached a whopping $750 million over the past five years. Are you ready to create your very own home theater?

Looking for Something Fun to Do? Try Zip Lining!

If you are looking for something all of your friends or family will enjoy can be a challenge. Finding family fun activities that are also fun for adults may seem like an impossible task but it does not have to be. Zip lines can be fun for everyone in your group.

What is zip lining?

A zip line is pulley that has been suspended on a cable that has bee mounted to a slope of some kind. Zip lines are designed so that a person can be moved my gravity from the top of the slope to the bottom. These are often placed high the trees or other natural settings, when they are used for family fun activities, for example. When zip lines are put up for children, they tend to be shorter and are placed lower to the ground. Zip lines that are placed higher up and go for longer distances are generally reserved for getting to remote spaces, as can be found in a rain forest canopy to to get people to and from tree houses.

How long has zip lining been around?

While zip lining for entertainment or for family fun activities is relatively new, the zip line has been around for a very long time. Early versions of modern day zip lines go back hundreds, if not thousands, of years. In China, zip lines were used to cross rivers. It was not until 2015 that bridges were installed over rivers in that country to replace the zip lines people were using to cross the rivers.

H.G Wells included a zip line in his 1897 book, “The Invisible Man.” In 1906, Alberto Santos-Dumon used a version of the zip line to do testing on the biplane he was working on. He used this to test ot before it could fly on its own power. He was able to fly his biplane that same year.

People who were in the Australian outback used to use zip lines to bring supplies such as food or equipment to people who were working on the opposite side of a river or a gully. During wartime, the military there used them to get supplies to troops who were further advanced.

The use of zip lines has therefore been widespread and goes back a very long way in human societies around the globe. They were used in agriculture and for a host of reasons.

Why should I try zip lining?

There are a lot of reasons to bring your friends or family on a zip lining adventure. In terms of family fun activities, it is safe and a lot of fun that can be done both indoors or outside. Here are some other reasons:

  • It will help people with a fear of heights. Zip lining offers a safe way to confront and overcome that fear. When people are dealing with phobias, one thing that psychologists recommend is to face it. If people are afraid of heights, getting used to being at a higher height safely can help. Zip lining is a perfect way to face heights in a safe manner.
  • Zip lining is a great way to bond with friends or family. The adrenaline rush that people get when they try a zip line for the first time is a great way to creating bonding moments. When you are looking for fun family activities, it is hard to beat the shared experience of zip lining for the first time. This can help all groups bond. Some groups that get a lot out of the experience are coworkers, sports teams, school reunion groups and families. Want to bond with your new in-laws? Try zip lining!
  • People of all fitness levels can try it. Some fun family activities require all participants be very fit. White water rafting is a lot of fun but people who do it need to be at least somewhat fit. There is no such requirement for zip lining. Anyone can do it. That is one way you can bring anyone and everyone together.

Finding fun, safe and adventurous things to do may seem hard but it can be done. If you want a fun bonding activity for your group, zip lining may be just the thing to try.

Wedding Tents for Your Momentous Occasion

Written by Contemporary Artists on September 30, 2016. Posted in Party rentals, Wedding carpet rentals, Wedding tents for rent

Tent rentals reading pa

Once you’re engaged, you want to have enough time to plan your wedding just the way you want it. After all, this is a rite of passage as well as a very special day for you as well as your families and friends.

The average length of engagements, according to the Knot’s 2014 Real Weddings Study, is 14 months, so if your engagement falls into that time frame, you are among those couples that want a bit more than a year to plan this momentous occasion.

June continues to be one of the most popular months for weddings, followed by October. The Knot’s 2014 Real Weddings Study found that 15% of weddings were held in June and 14% in October. This same study found that weddings tend to have an average of 136 wedding guests.

Now that you’ve explored all your options and have decided to have an outdoor wedding–complete with wedding tents–there are a few logistics to consider.

First of all, you may be deciding whether you want to buy or rent your wedding tents. If you and your life-partner-to-be both enjoy entertaining on a regular basis, you’ll probably want to purchase your own. However, if you only think you’ll just use them occasionally, such as three-to-four time per year, you may want to consider renting them instead.

Secondly, you’ll want to make a decision on what type of tent you may want–a frame or a pole tent. There are basically two types of tent tops available for large events: vinyl and polyester. Most spacious event tests are constructed out of vinyl because it’s not only strong and durable, but affordable as well.

The size, or the square footage, of the wedding tents you choose will depend on the number of guests you plan–or anticipate–to be at the wedding. Remember to allow space for maneuvering, especially if some of the chairs are on the bulky side.

If you are planning to have chairs, especially if they’re going to be set up in rows, be sure to allow five-to-six square feet for every chair.

Here are a few simple formulas to determine what size of wedding tents you will need.

    For table seating, use the number of guests times 15 square feet.
    For cocktail and standing areas, use the number of guests times six square feet.

        For the actual ceremony and regular seating, use the number of guests times eight square feet.
        For the dance area, you’ll need an additional two-to-three square feet.
        For the head table that seats the happy couple, you’ll need 25 square feet.

      Once those R.S.V.P.’s begin to arrive, you will have a much better idea of how many square feet you’ll need–and don’t forget the plus-ones!

      Are you planning to serve a meal or did you decide to go with assorted appetizers? When you’re serving Hors d’Oeuvres, you may not require as much space because your guests will likely choose to mingle with their Champagne or sparkling mineral water.

      If you’re having a more formal sit-down affair, then you’ll need to respond these questions;

        What are the tables’ dimensions?
        How many people will be seated at each table?

      In general, when you choose round tables, you’ll want to have a minimum of 12 square feet for each person. If you choose rectangular tables, then you’ll want to have a minimum of ten square feet for each person.

      You’ll also want to consider aisles to ease the flow of guests as well as create a special space for all of the wedding toasts and speeches! This will require approximately eight square feet for each person.

      After you’ve made the decision on the space required for your wedding tents, you’ll want to turn your thoughts to other necessary items. Here is a short list to ensure that you have everything you need for your grand entrance to marriage:

        Wedding carpet rentals
        Wedding chairs
        Wedding tables
        Wedding flooring rentals
        Wedding lighting rentals
        Wedding linen rentals

The Rise of Hip Hop

Written by Contemporary Artists on September 28, 2016. Posted in Black news websites, Latest entertainment, Latest hollywood

Current celebrity news

Hip Hop is one of the most popular kinds of music on the planet today. On Facebook “old school” hip hip has garnered over one million likes. There are hundreds of Facebook groups devoted to the music. Hip hop artist Jay Z’s album, “The Blueprint 3” reached number one on the Billboard 200. This was his 11th number one album. This made Jay Z bypass Elvis as having the most number one albums by any solo artist. This was a big deal, not just in the world of black entertainment news but for everyone.

Where did hip hop start?

Hip hop got its start on the streets on the Bronx in the late 1960s and early 1970s as rap. It offered a mix of funk soul, new technology, disco and a big dose of social uneasiness and upheaval. It was popular on the streets, in parks and clubs but it did not get much traction beyond the New York City borough where it was born until The Sugarhill Gang released, “Rapper’s Delight.” This hit radio stations in 1980. Blondie, a band fronted by singer Debbie Harry, took the music a step further with the release of its single “Rapture” that featured rapped lyrics. The next year, The Funky Plus 4 became the first rap group to play on national TV when they were asked to be the musical host for NBC’s hit show “Saturday Night Live.”

The 1980s were great for the new genre. Rap acts Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Fives produced groundbreaking music that added lyrics that talked about social and economic issues facing the African American community. At the same time the Black Entertainment Network (BET) was formed to provide black entertainment news and information. The network was launched in 1980. The new TV network was launched to appeal to an African American audience and features urban news, black celebrity news and other programming. Before there were black news websites, there was BET.

RunDMC hit the scene in 1983. Their style of music and lyrics was stark and blunt. Theirs was viewed as an uncompromising style and they payed homage to the rappers that had gone before them. Later, in 1986, their collaboration with Aerosmith when they did a remake of that band’s hit “Walk This Way” breathed new life into the rock band and brought them back to the music scene. That same year, they also collaborated with the Beastie Boys. Rap was growing and moving into other musical genres.

Meanwhile, Russell Simmons, broker of Joseph Simmons of Run DMC founded the Def Jam record label with Rick Rubin. Their first artist was LL Cool J. Soon after they signed Run DMC, the Beastie Boys, JA Rule and Public Enemy. It was not long before it became the dominant label in the genreandge;

The crossover to pop that many rap artists were looking for happened in 1990. MC Hammer’s single “U Can’t Touch This” and Vanilla Ice’s “Ice Ice Baby” topped the charts. It could have been the success or the commercial aspects of both songs but they were both shunned by most of the rap community and the black entertainment news outlets.

The 1990s saw the rise of “gangta rap” and an East Coast vs. West Coast rivalry was started. While New York City was the birth place of rap, Los Angeles rappers gained more influence as Death Row Records was started by Dr. Dre and Marion “Suge” Knight. The emerging sub-genre featured a lot of flash and emphasis on the violent lifestyle of life on the streets of the southern Californian city. Ice T released his single, “Cop Killer” that was considered to be scandalous. The situation was brought to a head when both Suge Knight and Tupac Sahakur were killed by gun violence in separate incidents.

Eminem exploded in 1999. He became he first rap artist to become the largest music star on the planet. Some have compared the white rapper’s lyrics to Shakespeare. He was able to connect to middle America in ways that no other artist could. In 2000, he released his second album. It sold 1.8 million copies.

Since then, there is little doubt that rap and hip hop are part of our pop culture. No longer confined to black entertainment news areas, it is everywhere.

Reasons Your Business Can Benefit from Professional Photography

Written by Contemporary Artists on August 9, 2016. Posted in Digital photo retouching services, Photo publishing, Professional photo editing service

Photo correction services

No matter what goods or services you are working to sell, your business can profit from using professional photographic services. Pictures that were taken by a professional photographer get more attention that is often more positive than photos that are taken by an amateur. When Redfin looked at how people view professional and amateur photos, they found that the professionally taken images were twice as likely to be shared on social media and via other channels. They also reported that when some houses for sale were photographed with a DSLR camera, sell for between $3,400 to $11,400 more than those where the images were captured with an amateur camera. This was true for homes whose selling prices were between $200,000 and $1 million. Homes that were photographed with the DSLR camera also sell faster. For homes valued at between $400,000 and $500,000, the time on the market was less than six months about 64% of the time. Homes that were photographed with amateur cameras were sold within six months only 46% of the time. Choosing a professional photographer who uses a photo editing service can only improve the quality of your images and generate more leads and sales.

Reasons to Hire Professional Photographer:

  • You will get the results you want. It is easy to think that you can have your staff take the pictures for your website or of the events you hold but it just does not work that way. From real estate marketing to taking head shots of your team, people notice and respond to quality images in a way that they do not to amateur photos. As has been noted, professionally taken photos that have been worked on by a good photo editing service will be consistently the quality you need to show your company in the best light possible. A professional photographer can come in and take the same quality photos at your company retreat as they can when they are taking photos in a studio. They know what they are doing and your materials will reflect that.
  • Professional photographers use only the best equipment. As was noted earlier, the quality of the camera makes a difference in the quality of the resulting photographs. They also have the experience and expertise to make the most of the better equipment. Great photographers can work magic with lower quality cameras than they will have to shoot your project but they will have cameras that are top of the line to get the best shots possible. Most also take advantage of a professional photo editing service so that the quality of the finished product is always right on the money.
  • Your brand deserves nothing less than the best. When people visit your website or look over your marketing materials, they may not say out loud or even acknowledge the thought but will judge your business based on the quality of your images. They may not even be away that they are doing it but the more professional your images look, the more seriously they will take you and your brand. You have only one chance to make a first impression, make it count by hiring a professional to take your images. Between the photographer’s skills at taking photos and the photo editing service’s skill at editing the, your photos will reflect well on you and your brand.
  • When you hire a professional photographer you get a real professional. This means that they are straightforward and upfront with you. If they say they will have your photos done by a certain date, you do not have to worry about getting them on time. When you are working with any kind of professional, there are benefits to it. You should have a fairly detailed contract with them that specifies what your expectations are and what theirs are. That way, if you asked for them to remove the background in your images and they do not do that, for example, you have some recourse.

People like to say that we should not, “judge a book by its cover. This policy is ignored when it comes to images and photos on web sites. Hiring a professional to take your photos can improve how the public sees your brand.

3 Big Reasons to Use Real Estate Photography Editing Services

Written by Contemporary Artists on August 9, 2016. Posted in Photo editing companies for photographers, Photo touch up service, Product photo editing

Photo color correction services

Does it make sense to use real estate photography editing services? Will it make that big of a difference on image quality to compensate for cost? As a professional photographer or even an amateur photographer taking real estate photos, you may question the cost and benefit of professional photo editing services. And understandably so: If you’re already using one of the best cameras on the market, how much help can professional photography editing services really provide?

The short answer: a lot. From freeing up your time so you can do other things (like actually taking photos) to helping grow your business and ultimately earning a higher selling price for the real estate you photograph, photography editing services can be a major asset for any professional or amateur real estate photographer.

Here’s why you should use photo editing services:

  1. So you can spend more time shooting

    Professional photographers often turn to photography editing services when their workload becomes so much that they don’t have time to edit their photos themselves. Whether you’re a professional or amateur photographer, real estate photography editing services can take a big weight off your plate.

    Why spend hours in the editing room when you could be spending that time doing other things like taking photos for clients and growing your business?
  2. To grow your business

    Speaking of growing your business, it can be hard to attract new clients if your photos aren’t as pristine as they could be. The market of professional photographers is growing, meaning competition is getting stiffer with each passing year. Between 2014 and 2024, the employment of professional photographers is expected to grow only 3%, slower than the average growth rate projected for all occupations combined. As companies continue to shift to freelancers as opposed to on-staff photographers, finding salaried jobs is going to get even more difficult.

    As any freelancer will tell you, when you freelance, you’re constantly marketing yourself. Your every paycheck depends on your ability to attract new clients and keep the old ones coming back for more. And these days, it’s all about online and word-of-mouth marketing through digital sites like social media. To get the word out there about your business, you need to get people talking – – or, rather: sharing. One study found that people are twice as likely to share professional photographs as they are user-generated photographs. The difference between professional and user-generated? Quality.

    You’ve got the camera and the eye for capturing those perfect moments; real estate photography editing services have the technology to make your photos shine online.
  3. Because quality matters

    When it comes to real estate, the quality of the pictures is almost as important as the quality of the real estate itself. Real estate marketing relies heavily on digital and print media to reach its customers. Chances are your client’s customers are going to see your pictures before they ever seen the actual product (i.e. house or land). As such, realtors depend on professional photographs to help them in their real estate marketing efforts.

    Professionally photographed homes sell for higher prices and in shorter time frames than unprofessionally photographed ones. One study compared homes photographed with DSLR photos to those marketed with point-and-shoot photos. Within six months, 64% of the DSLR photographed homes in the $400,000 to $500,000 price range had sold while only 46% of the point-and-shoot homes had. Similarly, Redfin found that homes selling for between $200,000 and $1 million sold for $3,400 to $11,200 more when photographed with a DSLR camera.

    Since quality clearly matters, taking the time to ensure your photos are professionally edited is crucial. After all, what good does using the best equipment do if you skimp on the editing?

Professional and amateur photographers alike can fall into the trap of wanting to skip professional real estate photography editing services in favor of saving a few bucks. In the end, however, it’s not only your photographs that will suffer, but also your ultimate home selling price or photography business. Homes and photographers alike depend on quality photographs to bring in the dough. Don’t let skimpy editing hold you or your business back from earning what it deserves. Make an investment in your future by using real estate photography editing services.

Are You Are a Professional Photographer? Improve Your Bottom Line by Outsourcing Photo Editing

Written by Contemporary Artists on August 8, 2016. Posted in Photo album design service, Professional photo book, Remove the background

Hdr image creation

Are you a professional photographer? This is a profession that is a lot of fun. Photographers get to travel the world taking pictures of wildlife and the events of the day. If you are interested in something closer to home, you can be hired to take photos of weddings and other celebrations. You can help people document some of the most important events and memorable times of their lives. More and more companies are hiring freelancers to handle their photography needs. These jobs provide a lot of freedom and flexibility for people who enjoy working on their own schedule. Using photo editing services for photographers can help you grow your business, spend more time doing what you love and make more money doing it.

Reasons to Consider Using Photo Editing Services for Photographers:

  • You will get to spend more time on the actual photography. All the hours that you ‘spend working on editing the photos you have taken, cannot be spent taking photos. The photo editing process is very time consuming and can be tedious. You may think that you are the only person who can edit your images but the truth of the matter is that you were hired to take and deliver excellent photos. Your talent lies in framing and setting up the right photos. All that time you spend at the computer, scanning through the hundreds or thousands of photos you took of an event is time that you are not spending out doing another job. When you got into this business, it was probably because you love taking photos. When you use a photo editing service for photographers, you can spend more time doing what you love and make more money doing it.
  • Photo editing services for photographers are very cost effective. How much money can you make per hour when you are out working? When you are taking photos, that is what people are paying you for. When you price out the different photo editing services for photographers, you should find that you can make more money because you can take more jobs. Many of these services are a lot more cost effective than you may realize when you start looking at this as an option.
  • Spend more time developing a marketing strategy. Anyone who runs their own business knows the importance of marketing. But marketing takes time. If you outsource your photo editing needs to a professional photo editing service, you can spend more of your time working on and implementing a marketing strategy to get the word out about your services and the quality of your work. Even if you are considering hiring a firm to help you with this, there are still some things that you are going to have to do to promote your business.
  • You get a better finished product. You may be a decent photo editor but the people who work for photo editing services for photographers are experts in photo editing. You may have been trained to take great photos and that is important. The people to whom you can outsource your editing needs will make your photos look better than even you imagined they could look. This is a win-win-win. They get more business, you get to do more business in the time you were editing your work and your client get a better quality final product. Everyone ends up happy with this arrangement.
  • Network more to get more business. One of the best ways that small businesses grow is through networking. The problem is that this is also a time consuming endeavor. The good news about networking is that the time spent on it will have a huge return on investment (ROI). When you are out mingling with people in your industry, you can drum up new business and improve your bottom line. The less time you spend tied to your computer editing and scanning the photos you took, the more time you can spend on promotion.

You got into photography because you are a creative person who likes working with different people in different settings. Hiring professional photo editors can only help you do more of that.

Remember All of the Party Rental Essentials

Tent and party rentals

Planning a big event can be exciting, but it is not without its challenges. Proper time and care must be taken in order to accurately prepare for an event if you want everything to go smoothly. Generally when you throw a party or event, you don’t want anyone to put any thought into the set up of it all, other than to admire it all and have a good time. One of the biggest aspects of your event will be your choice of venue. While there are plenty of options for indoor parties, such as event halls, schools, hotels, churches, and other buildings meant to serve the needs of many people at once, more and more people are opting to take their event outside.

From sound equipment to wedding carpet rentals
If you are planning an outdoor event, chances are you are going to need to look into several different types of party rentals. There are many different types of outdoor events that you might be celebrating, but one of the most popular and significant would be a wedding. If you rent a tent for a wedding, you could choose to have the ceremony out in the open air with the reception and festivities taking place in the tent, or you could make the tent versatile, converting it between the ceremony and celebrations, as long as you have enough help, as well as a place for guests to go during the transformation. But a tent is not the only thing you will need. If you are expecting a sizable crowd, you may want to have a sound system available during the ceremony, and you will certainly want one when it comes time for the dancing and musical festivities. And of course there are chairs and tables to consider, and you will likely need to look at wedding carpet rentals for the aisle during the main event.

Wedding chairs, wedding tables, wedding carpet rentals
If you have a lot of friends and family members willing to help out and pitch in to help prepare for the big day, you might be able to save some money on the cost of rentals and labor. But if you are not quite sure who will actually be able to show up to assist, and if you are not quite sure if the handful of tables that your uncle can bring will match the handful of tables that your neighbor was planning on bringing to set up, you might want to consider finding a rental service that can ensure everything is just as you envision it. If your event is large enough to warrant the rental of a tent, you are probably going to want things to look sharp, and not thrown together. And the right service will also help you think about everything, including the details you may have forgotten, like wedding carpet rentals.

Preparing for an outdoor wedding

One study conducted by The Knot showed that June and October were the two most popular months in which couples choose to marry. Getting married in June is a great time to have the event outdoors, and October could also be a pleasant time to celebrate outdoors, depending on the location and the setup. That same study showed that 136 people is the average amount of people attending a wedding. That is a pretty significant number, and one that will need to be aptly planned for, particularly in an outdoor setting where every item must be put in place. There is more involved in the set up process than just double checking the correct amount of chairs and places at the tables. You also need to ensure there is enough space for everyone to comfortably enjoy every part of the event. It is recommended that about five to six square feet is provided for each chair or seat lined up in rows, and 10 to 12 square feet for each person at tables.

You want your day to be perfect. Proper planning and finding the right rentals to fit your needs will help to accomplish that dream of perfection.
