Teepees are the must-have accessory for summer 2021 parties and events

As most of us put away our passports and buckle up for a summer in Blighty, we’re turning to tepees for shelter, safety and a sense of occasion.

From mini tepees put up indoors or children’s slumber parties to bigger bell
tents for Covid-safe garden gatherings, these impermanent structures seem to be the ‘go to’ summer experience.

‘We launched in October 2020 and were told by many people that we were taking
a big risk,’ says Jenni Parks, co-founder of Buckinghamshire-based Teepee Partees, who has organised more than 60 Covid-compliant parties in six months.

‘We’ve been blown away by the response.

‘The consistent feedback from our clients is that they want to organise special experiences in a safe environment.

‘Many have vulnerable relatives who have been shielding and safety
is a top priority.’

A big appeal is how Instagrammable tents and tepees are, with their bespoke decorative services and add-ons, including snacks, balloons and fairy lights.

Even celebrities want to pitch a tent or five – actress Daisy May Cooper recently held a Frozen-themed tepee party for her daughter.

Meanwhile, for many families the ‘tent’ aspect is simply the closest they can get to a holiday.
