Celebrating Life’s Milestones During a Health Pandemic
2020 kick offed of a new decade and the event industry was booming & ready to help their clients celebrate milestones- big and small.
Then… COVID hit. This “unprecedented time” has not been seen in many in our lifetimes, nor did anyone ever anticipate a health crisis of this magnitude. The effects have been felt world-wide by individuals, businesses & governments alike. It is varied how this has touched, changed and endangered various industries. For the Event Industry, the past six months have been a rollercoaster.
With countries & states starting to open with updated health and safety information from the CDC, we are slowly starting to host events again with new protocols.
As of today, in the State of Connecticut, we are currently allowed to have events outside for up to 100 guests and 25 for inside. Event Tents are in higher demand than ever before and people are eager to pivot their celebrations safely and within the current guidelines, rather than delay or cancel. Abbey Tent & Party Rentals has rolled out new products and procedures to meet the states standards.
Seated dinners are recommended, but for clients who want to have a buffet we can provide Buffet Plexiglass Dividers for safety. Masked & gloved catering staff can plate your meal, as you point out your choices. This helps prevent cross contamination on the serving utensils and the food. A single table can move through the line at a time, to maintain social distancing.
Hand Sanitization Stations are also required at an event. We think the phrase “Spread love, Not germs” is a cute way to greet your guests and remind them to sanitize upon arrival. We would be happy to provide you with a framed sign and sanitizer pumps, or you can customize your own. Remember to rent an additional table and/or tablecloth for this station.
Lastly, our staff has been certified “Clean, Safe, Essential” through the American Rental Association to assure we are maintaining an already high-level of sanitization of our products, warehouse, and showroom.
To further protect our staff and you, we welcome clients to our showroom by appointment only. We feel confident we can help you safely celebrate your life moments!
