Awkward garden marquee
The occasion: a barmitzvah party for 100 people.
The venue: a small to medium sized London garden with sloping flower beds all around.
The challenge: to accomodate 100 guests all sitting at tables within the space, and to allow for dancing.
County Marquees' solution: level the sloping edges of the garden so a marquee could be built around the flower beds. The marquee could then take advantage of every bit of available space. An L-shaped extension into the garden's patio area allowed another table to be accomodated. Children's tables were placed on top of a dance floor and removed when dancing started.
Levelling off the sides of the garden allowed 100 guests to sit in a small area - the final effect was cosy but not cramped.

With the children's tables removed, there was plenty of room for a celebratory conga.
Tables were sufficiently spread out to allow guests room to breathe - and toast!
Flowerbeds inside the marquee allowed lights to be placed amongst plants, attractively illuminating the flowers and softening the effect of the lights themselves.
