Looking for inspiration to make sure an outside treat goes ahead, whatever the weather? Say hello to our igloo dome tent?

More of an inflatable igloo dome, than a tent of the traditional kind, an igloo dome is great for special treats – even across the colder winter months. 

Sean has so many ideas about how hiring an igloo dome adds outdoor fun to a celebration, brings a sense of something special to a well-earned break or can be a thoughtful treat for a loved one. So, the listing for his igloo dome already includes options for going cosy, having a cinema screening or enjoying a spot of wining and dining …

But how else might you enjoy an igloo dome tent for a special occasion?


2021 is set to be the year of the stay-cation. But already, self-catering or holiday bookings are hard to find and may be expensive. So why not stay at home and enjoy a special space in the garden? Consider hiring an igloo dome to:

  • Have a romantic stay space, sleeping under the stars with someone you love.
  • Oh … and that under the stars thing? The clear sides of the dome offer the perfect option for staying warm and dry without missing cosmic spectaculars, such as meteorites, super-moons and shooting stars.
  • Is someone you love missing their favourite tropical paradise? Our igloo dome can be themed and decorated accordingly so you can recreate paradise in the back garden. 
  • Fancy a getaway but can’t actually get away due to travel restrictions, responsibilities and work commitments? The hire of an igloo dome, even just for a weekend, provides a space that’s ‘something different’. Getting away in your own garden brings a change of scenery and a space to chill out. This option is especially ideal for key workers such as NHS staff when they finally get a little time off and need some sanctuary space. And don’t forget, Sean’s happy to give key worker and NHS discounts

#2.Outdoor safe space

Most gatherings are taking place outside this year – but the summer’s also when hazards can lurk! From annoyances like bugs and insects, to dodgy or dangerous areas of the garden, there may be a reason why you’d like to have an ‘inside’ space without taking the party indoors. 

Thankfully, with its 3.6 m diameter, our igloo dome can provide exactly what’s needed. Just think about how it could be strategically placed to:

  • Restrict access to another area of the garden.
  • Be a useful space for placing the food, drinks and refreshments.
  • Create a quiet play zone for children, perhaps by including a toddler ball pit or soft play.
  • Create a sit-down zone for older guests. With its extra comforts, the Cosy hire package is perfect for this.

#3. calendar celebrations

Those memorable calendar dates still come around, even if the celebrations may not be able to go ahead in the usual way. An igloo dome offers a practical and, if you organise it right, even a surprise venue for special dates such as Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Valentine’s, anniversaries and birthdays.

And speaking of surprises, it’s also a great option for making a date memorable for the first time! How about surprising your nearest and dearest with:

  • A romantic set up for a marriage proposal.
  • A baby-on-the-way or gender-reveal announcement.
  • A warm welcome home.
  • Screening of a wedding video for the first time (Sean’s Cinema set up is perfect for this).


There are many reasons why getting out there for a special occasions may not happen for some families. When this happens, an igloo dome in the garden offers a unique way to still plan something special:

  • Need a romantic dining option during a local lock down or when babysitters aren’t available? The dining option hire includes some lovely light-up accessories, such as a light-up table. So whilst candlelight isn’t possible inside the dome (for safety reasons), soft lighting, starlight and moonlight can definitely be part of a date night or romance-themed dinner party.
  • Spa venue slots all booked up? Install the igloo, invite some friends, hire a mobile beautician or buy-in special treatments and enjoy a luxurious pampering at home. 
  • A low-key event at home doesn’t have to be boring when there’s an igloo dome and access to bundle options with other hire accessories from SOS. From a baby shower for a select few, with baby reveal items, to a teen screen or gaming night and birthday sleep over, there are lots of options for personalising a hire package and for creating the space to treat yourself and guests to something special – whatever the weather brings this summer.
