There is only one holiday listed on most calendar’s in March, St Patrick’s Day. Whether or not you are Irish, for those wanting to hold a party, it’s a pretty good holiday to celebrate. After all, what better excuse do you need to drink Irish ales and munch on corned beef and potatoes?
Kell’s Irish at 112 SW Second in Portland has an Irish festival March 15-18 to celebrate St Patrick’s Day.
Thinking about holding your own St Patrick’s Day Party in Portland? Having the event at an Irish restaurant can make it simple. Kell’s has banquet facilities for events with up to 250 people, but since St. Patrick’s Day is such a busy time for an Irish restaurant, there is a good chance that their facilities will not be available near the holiday or if they are you will have to reserve them far in advance.
Odds are you will have to pick another venue and decorate it to suit the holiday. Local dollar, party, and craft stores sell a wide variety of decorations, paper plates, napkins, cups, tables cloths, and more with a St Patrick’s Day theme. If your event is outdoors, be sure you have appropriate shelter or rent a tent. Portland can get pretty wet this time of year!
Book an Irish band or pick out some prerecorded Irish tunes for a DJ to play at your party. Be sure to book your entertainment early as this time of year, anything Irish is in heavy demand. Having an Irish dance? Consider getting a dance floor.
Food and drink are important parts of any party and St Patrick’s Day is no exception. If you are having your party catered, book your caterer far in advance to make sure you get your first choice.
Check the space requirements in regards to serving liquor if you intend to serve Irish alcohol. Coloring your beer green? Stock up on the green food coloring. A bar ran out of green food coloring and started using mint in their beer instead to keep the St Patrick’s Day theme. A lot of patrons stopped drinking and left rather than drink the minty ale.
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.
Portland is a beautiful place with lots of green areas. However, there is a reason that the city is so alive with plants, and it isn’t because residents water their lawns. Portland gets a lot of rain throughout the year. The same rain that makes the city such a beautiful place can make planing an outdoor event very challenging. After all, no bride wants to be soaking wet on her wedding day and many a picnic has been ruined by a sudden downpour.
There are certain times of year of course that are less likely to be rainy; however, there is a saying in Portland: “If you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes.” It is not unheard of to get precipitation even in the driest times of year.
When planning an outdoor event in Portland, always have a plan in case of rain. Many parks have shelters that you can rent for an event. Some event venues offer both indoor and outdoor spaces. If the venue you have chosen for your event, does not have adequate shelter, you can also rent tents.
Whether or not it rains, outdoor events during winter, fall or spring can get downright cold. A tent or patio heater may be a good solution to help the guests stay warmer during your outdoor event.
Even if your event takes place on a beautiful sunny day, offer tents or other shelter so guests can have shade. Being too hot can be just as uncomfortable as being too cold. On really hot days, a little extra moisture might not be such a bad thing. Consider renting a misting tent so the guests have a place to get cooled down. Water games also provide a fun way for guests to cool off.
While outdoor events are at the mercy of the elements, being prepared can help make sure that any event is a success no matter what the weather may bring.
