Our unmatched experience planning company picnics and providing fun activities and entertainment for corporate crowds is by far the best part about hosting a picnic. Planning your company picnic can be a daunting task- but hiring us to manage everything- to handle the catering, site reservation, cleanup, and most importantly the entertainment can make your next event one which will be remembered for years!
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.
One of the most important things for any party is the menu. Whether you are having an elaborate meal or just serving appetizers, guests appreciate having good food to nibble on while they mingle. The ideal appetizers should be easy and inexpensive to prepare, and they also need to taste great.
Chips are easy (just open the bag) and inexpensive but served by themselves, they are also boring, You can get a container of salsa to serve with the chips, and but unless the salsa is something really special, it is unlikely to be a source of much praise. Luckily there are many other kinds of dips you can make or buy.
Mexicali or 7 Layer dip is a favorite for parties. It doesn’t actually have to have 7 layers, there can be more or less depending on your preferences. You can purchase premade layered dip in stores; however, it is not difficult to make yourself and it tastes much better if it is homemade.
Here is the recipe I grew up with:
In a large flat bowl, layer the following:
2 nine ounce cans bean dip (smashed flat)
3 ripe avocados mashed and mixed with 2 tablespoons lemonade
½ cup sour cream mixed with ½ cup mayonnaise and 1.25 ounces taco seasoning
Grated cheddar and jack cheese (enough to cover the entire bowl with a thick layer)
Chopped olives (1-2 small cans)
Chopped green olives (1 bunch)
Serve with corn chips.
This dip can be made a day or two in advance and kept in the fridge until the party. Be sure that if any perishable foods are going to be kept out for any length of time that they are kept at a cool temperature so they do not spoil. Placing the dip bowl over a tray of ice may be a smart idea during warm weather. You can purchase an inflatable buffet tray to fill with ice and set up on a table for a nominal cost. Another option is serve smaller portions and keep the remainder in the refrigerator or ice chest until the food that was served has been used.
If you want to serve warm appetizers, making nachos is another great way to serve chips at a party.
