Planning to have a picnic in Portland? Perhaps the most important part of any picnic is the food. Hamburgers and hot dogs are favorite picnic foods and are easily prepared on the grill at the park. You can also rent a large gas grill for your picnic. If you don’t want to cook any food at the park, pizza or sub sandwiches are an easy solution or go pot luck and let everyone share the work.
Portland has many gorgeous settings for picnics, but there is one potential problem with having any outdoor events in Portland- the weather. Portland is one of the rainiest cities in the United states with an average of 222 cloudy days per year. When planning for an outdoor event in Portland therefore, plan for the rain. Pick a park with a picnic shelter or use a tent. On the off chance a picnic takes place on a warm, sunny day, guests will be glad to have the shelter for shade. Even Portland gets hot sometimes.
If you are having a large party of using any special equipment for your picnic, be sure to reserve your picnic site ahead of time to make sure that the space is available when you have your event. Smaller picnics do not necessarily need to reserve a space, but keep in mind without reservations another party might take the space you want if there is a specific site you have in mind.
If you are having a party with lots of kids, consider renting inflatable bounce houses or other games and entertainment. A covered bounce house provides a space for the kids to play out of the rain.
Hope your picnic day is sunny and bright, but with a little preparation, your picnic can be a success no matter what the weather.
Looking for a fun, inexpensive way to add a lot of color to a room for a party? Decorate it with Helium filled balloons! Balloons provide festive decoration for all sorts of events, plus kids love to play with them, and they are cheap enough to send home as party favors. Just be sure to tie a ribbon and a weight to the end of the balloons so they don’t get away outside. Kids get pretty upset when they lose their balloon.
Balloons come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. You can purchase bags of latex balloons in single colors, multi colors, with different images on them, or in various shapes at stores such as party stores and dollar stores. Mylar balloons can also be filled with helium. Most balloons are pretty inexpensive, but if you want the store to fill them with helium, the price can add up when you are getting a bunch. A more affordable option may be to rent a helium tank and fill the balloons yourself.
A word of warning about helium tanks. The tanks are not toys. Never, ever inhale helium from the tanks. Doing so can have fatal consequences.
Once you have filled the balloons with helium, tie ribbons or strings to the bottom. You can let the balloons float to the ceiling, tie weights to the base, or tape or tie them to walls and furniture.
A movie screening can be an event by itself, or watching a movie can be entertainment for an event such as a party or festival.
A movie theater is the ideal venue for a movie screening and most offer their facilities to rent for events. You can also arrange to play a movie at a park or an outdoor venue using portable equipment. For a smaller, more intimate event, quality home theater equipment can be used to play a movie from a DVD.
There are many things to consider when planning a film screening. Is this a private or public event? Are you selling tickets? What movie do you want to play? Are you debuting an independent film or playing a commercial release? What format is the movie you are playing: digital, 35 mm, or a DVD?
Many theaters can arrange the details of the film rental, but some movies may not be available or may only be released in limited formats. Make sure that the correct equipment is available at the theater you are renting for the movie you want to play. Film rental costs vary depending on many factors including how new and popular the film is and whether or not you are charging for tickets.
Once you have determined what film you are playing and arranged for the venue and film rental, there are other things to consider. If you are selling tickets, how are you going to promote your event? Newspaper advertising, event calendars, posters, and social media are a good start. Will there be any other attractions besides the movie? Perhaps actors from the movie can attend or you can give away prizes. If you make the film screening into more of an event then just watching a movie, you will probably bring in a larger audience.
If you are holding your film screening at a theater, the concessions equipment will already be provided. If, however, you are holding the event at a park or a private residence, consider renting a popcorn machine and serving fresh popped popcorn with your event.
Most people enjoy watching a movie, so with the right planning, a film screen can be a popular and successful event.
