Another view of the interior space when most of the walls were in place...you can see the poles in the middle of the tent. The windows helped bring in lots of light.
Another interior shot. The ends of the tent have zippered doors, so we left one open for ease of movement. We placed string lights in the tent and they worked perfectly with just the right amount of light provided.
I used black, orange and green tulle to drape over the top of the tent. Because it has been so dry here in Tennessee, our lawn is more dust than grass. We scattered hay over the tent floor to keep the dust down and provide a good base for the people traffic. Next year, I would like to have a couple rolls of outdoor carpet turf for the flooring.
We also had to set up the hay play. This year, Mike set it up by the playset so that the kids could slide down the slide into a hay tunnel. This is an in progress shot with Connor (GB 3) providing his stamp of approval.
Mike and Alden (GB 1) unloading the hay to set up the hay play area and the fire pit seating area. My brother, Peanut, is great and allows us to use some of his hay bales each year for the party. This year, we met in the hay field and picked up the hay as he baled it.
