5 Kinds of Nashville Businesses That Flavor Up Parties & Gatherings

Here on The Parts Drawer, we’re all about Nashville.

Restaurants, shopping, historical locations, events, concerts, etc. You name it, we plan on talking about it.

A part of this plan includes recognizing different types of Nashville businesses that we hope will benefit our viewers. We also welcome suggestions, so leave us a comment below if you have any to contribute.

Now let’s dive in to the 3 fun companies that Nashvillians can use to add some flavor to their parties, events, gatherings, get-togethers, or whatever other kind of situation that brings together a group of people to have a good ole’ time.

And before we start, I should mention that there are a variety of companies to choose from when it comes to the following niches. A quick Google search will reveal a list of these companies when you include the service and location.

Moving forward now…

#1. Photo Booth Rentals

Grab a group of your peeps and say cheese.

Photo booths rentals have become an increasingly popular hit at parties everywhere. And why not?

  • They’re fun for all ages
  • You can make memories with friends and loved ones that can last a lifetime
  • Bring the whole group together for fun and laughter

Sounds like a win, win, win situation.

You can also use cool props to dress up for pictures, and they can usually be acquired for you to put on social media.

#2. Bounce House Rentals

Bounce houses and other inflatables have also proven to be a huge hit at birthday parties and other kinds of events.

Kids love them, and adults love watching their kids have a great time while getting a dose of exercise while they’re at it. Many of the companies in Nashville have a selection of popular kid’s cartoons like Dora the Explorer and Spongebob, making these inflatable rentals even more enticing for kids.

But the fun doesn’t seem to stop there.

There also appears to be a selection of slides (wet or dry), obstacle courses, and sports inflatables.

These all make for a great idea for any child’s birthday party, or hey, maybe event an adult. =)

#3. Game Truck Rental

This is a bit of a rare one, but in Murfreesboro, there is a company with a huge game truck that people can rent from hour to hour, where they can play Xbox and Playstation while sitting in the truck.

You can also do karaoke, and utilize the outdoor movie screen.

Check out: for more information.

#4. Limo Services

You can never go wrong with limo services.

What better way to see the sights of Nashville than riding in a limo. Travel through town with a group of your friends, and get a clearer view of what Music city has to offer.

Go shopping, attend a concert, or eat at one of the best restaurants in town – all while being chauffeured with first class treatment from one of Nashville’s finest limo rentals.

We recommend taking a wine tour, or even tour of some of Nashville’s hottest musicians and artists in country music today.

#5. Party Bus Rental

If you aren’t in to limos, maybe a party bus rental would be more up your alley.

Party buses are great for large groups of people, and a safe way to get around town if your party involves alcohol consumption.

Party with your peeps while traveling around town, and visit your desired destination in style.

Nashville only has a handful of rental companies to choose from when it comes to party buses, so check out the obvious selections for more information.

So there you have it – 5 fun ideas for companies to hire for your party needs.

They aren’t necessarily rare ideas, but they sure are fun, and a proven way to bring friends and loved one together for a day of memory making.

Will All This Nashville Snow Affect Local Businesses?

On the dates of January 20th and the 22st (but not the 21st strangely,) Nashville and most of it’s surrounding cities got what the weather channels said they were going to get for once – 4 to 6 inches of powdery white snow.

If you live in the middle TN area of know of someone that does, you may know that not only does it not snow too often, but it barely ever does when the news calls for it to; needless to say, Nashvillians may have been a bit more in shock this time around.

On both days, the snow began falling in the early morning hours between 6-8 am or so, then continued on for most of the day. This meant absolutely no school for the kids but for the adults that had to be at work, well, that was a different story. Accidents occurred on most major roads and some of those that did make it to work, got stuck until someone could come get them.

With non-stop snow all around Nashville, you can bet a pretty new penny that some businesses were affected whether customer flow was just slow, or the owners themselves couldn’t even make it in.

This snow may have hurt a little bit of Nashville business, but it’s simultaneously brought joy to those that haven’t gotten to enjoy it in so long, if ever at all.
