Mother’s Day is coming up in a couple weeks. If you are planning on celebrating with just yourself and mom, there are many Mother’s Day events that may be fun for the two of you or you can take mom out to her favorite restaurant for a meal. If, however, you are planning for a group, including perhaps your mom, yourself, your siblings, and your kids, you may decide to plan your own Mother’s Day event for your group.
First you need to determine who will be included in your event. Is everyone grown up or are there kids too? If you are having a Mother’s Day party with lots of little kids, plan something to keep the kids entertained so that the adults can enjoy themselves. Antsy, bored kids can make a party unpleasant pretty quick.
Where do you want to hold your event? Many restaurants have banquet space and will be happy to hold your event if you reserve the space in advance. Mother’s Day is a busy day for restaurants, however, so be sure to reserve the space early. The huge benefit of holding an event at a restaurant is that the restaurant provides the food, so there is not a lot of work left over for you to do. However, if you have a large group, it can get expensive.
If you like doing things yourself or are on a budget, consider having your party at a city park. Many Portland area parks have picnic shelter’s available to reserve in advance or if you want to try your luck you can show up and get a picnic table on a first come first served basis. If the weather is nice, there will probably be a lot of people having picnics on Mother’s Day, so if you have not reserved a space, be sure the park you choose has multiple picnic tables available, just in case.
One potential problem with having an outdoor party is that Portland has unpredictable, often wet, weather, so plan accordingly. If the picnic venue does not have a shelter, rent a tent to keep your guests dry. You can also rent tables and chairs if there are not enough at the venue where you are holding your party.
Parks are great for kids as many of them have playgrounds. If there are a lot of kids at your party, pick a picnic spot close to the playground so the kids can play while the adults visit. Another option is to rent an inflatable or hire an entertainer to keep the kids busy.
Don’t forget to get mom a gift for Mother’s Day. Most moms appreciate flowers, chocolate, and jewelry, but a more personal gift may win you more brownie points. Use your imagination and what you know about mom to make something really special. Consider using photos to make mom a personalized gift such as a photo album, a photo mug, a t-shirt, or a calendar. Kids can make cards and artwork for mom. If you are going for a traditional gift, you can personalize it by wrapping the gift with a child’s drawings, attaching a photo, or having a hand made card.
Mother’s Day is an opportunity for kids and adults to let mom know how much they appreciate her. Regardless of what kind of celebration you plan and gifts you give, a son or daughter’s love is perhaps the best gift anyone can give to their mom.
Having a birthday party for kids? How are you planning on keeping them entertained? The last thing you want to hear kids say at a party is that they are bored. Even worse, when kids don’t have constructive activities, they tend to get in trouble.
One way to keep partygoers entertained and make the party extra special is to hire an entertainer. Clowns are a popular choice for parties. Clowns add a bit of comedy to any event and may also perform a magic show, or make balloon animals. Magicians perform amazing feats and humorous tricks to entertain adults and children alike. Balloon artists make amazing creations out of balloons. Face Painters can paint the children’s faces like their favorite animals or characters to help bring the kid’s imaginations alive or paint simple creations and fake tattoos.
There are many other entertainers that you could choose for an event including musicians, acrobats, caricature artists, and more. Does your child have a favorite character? Consider having a costumed performer come dressed up as that character.
Having an entertainer makes keeping kids involved in their party much simpler. A good entertainer will make your party the event all of the kids talk about for years to come… and that is one way to make sure this birthday is a happy one for the guest of honor.
The large empty field seemed like the perfect venue for a party. There was plenty of space for tables, chairs, a dance floor, and even a stage. Parking wasn’t going to be a problem either. Everything seemed good to go, until in a conversation with the DJ, he asked what power was available for his equipment. Suddenly everything needed electricity including the sound equipment, the lights, the video projector, and the food prep equipment,… and there was no power source anywhere near that big field.
If you’ve ever planned an event in an area without electricity, you know how challenging it can be to find alternatives that don’t require an external power source. Luckily, there is an easier solution that will allow you to use all your electric equipment pretty much anywhere. Rent a generator. Clowns unlimited rents a portable Honda generator and a large 25,000 watt electric generator .
What can you use a generator for? Pretty much anything that needs power. For events needing just a little power, the Honda Generator is just the thing. For large festivals and events, that 25,000 watt generator can power a lot of equipment.
