Unique Backyard Tent Ideas from Entertaining to Decorating

Who says tents are just for camping? Or even for indoor family fun and sleepovers? Tents can also be the show-stopping centerpieces of outdoor gatherings in your backyard—and beyond! Just take a look at these fabulous options we’re featuring.

From two- to three-person teepees, perfect for a kiddie playdate, garden tea party, or a couple’s anniversary. All the way to roomy bell tents that can accommodate small dinner parties, bridal or baby showers, even intimate wedding receptions. Whatever the size, there’s just something extra-special about gathering within an enclosure in the outdoors to celebrate, don’t you agree? (*this post contains affiliate links)

Teepees & Tents for Backyard Get-togethers to Camping

For an intimate occasion you’re hosting right in your home garden, we found the most charming choices of tents. Two are actually teepees, and the third is a bit grander if you have a larger guest list—and the extra yard space!

The Razee Teepee (1), made of canvas on pine wood poles, and the Luxury Lace Teepee (2), made of sheer lacy fabric, both offer just the right cozy huddle space for 3 to 4 tots or 2 adults. They are basic enough, so you can decorate with greenery, flowers, rugs and throw pillows to suit your chosen theme. And since you can purchase these on Amazon, you can store these delightful teepees away and reassemble them for occasion after occasion!

Having a medium-sized garden gathering? How cool is it to have a service like (3) Sleepy Teepee, Arizona’s “professional slumber party and glamping experts.” They allow you to choose your theme to pair with their teepees, and they take care of delivery, set-up, and styling!
