Even though I have thrown many parties in my day, I have never encountered a question like this one: Is it appropriate toalt for adults to have a bunch of bounce house rentals at one of their parties? My answer? It depends on the type of party, haha.
Just because society wants us to all act like adults, doesn’t mean we can’t let that go for a few hours just because we want to rent a bounce house or two for a party we’re throwing, and this is both my fun and professional sides speaking here. I mean, a birthday party may not be appropriate unless there will be kids there (because they would take over anyways, naturally,) but for get togethers and other kinds of parties, sure, why not rent a bounce house?
I bring this topic up because believe it or not, it’s a question that I have gotten more frequently in the past few months since bounce houses have started to become a bigger thing.
So what do I answer these people that have been asking me to rent them a bounce house for their party. Well, in the beginning I just thought the idea was plain crazy. I mean, think about it. Picture an adult party with a bunch of people bouncing around in a bouncie house. You would think that those things couldn’t support that much weight but as my clients informed me, there would just have to be less people bouncing at a time. From that point I decided hey, sounds like a fun idea, why not jump all over renting a bounce house. Haha, get it?
Anyways, as a party planner, I never imagined myself recommending that my adult clients rent bounce houses to play in. I have done plenty of these types of birthday parties for kids with bouncie houses and slides but never thought it would extend up to the adults. That’s pretty funny stuff, don’t you think.
So now that I have personally played on a couple of bounce houses myself, I would like to personally recommed that all adults give this a try at least once in their life. Even if they don’t decide to rent the inflatable for themselves, they should at least let their kids try it out as the feeling can be liberating. Adults, it can also make you feel like a kid again, and you can’t put a price on that. Speaking of price though, it doesn’t cost as much as it may seem to rent an inflatable for a couple of hours, and the best part is that the people you rent from generally come and set everything up and clean it up again, which as you can imagine makes my job a heck of a lot easier.
