West Coast Event Productions: Beach BBQ, Adirondack Chairs, and Fire Pits!

When West Coast Event Productions needed Adirondack Chairs, they turned to Designed for Outdoors. Read more about how they created an amazing beach side barbecue from Event Planner Kayse Dahl. Find out more about Kayse and WCEP at their blog.

As the largest event planning and production company in the Northwest, West Coast Event Productions is always looking for products that help enhance our clients’ outdoor events, and provide a neat, authentic Northwest feel to their occasion. As event planners, there are many situations that require we not only select décor and seating arrangements that look nice, but are functional and feasible—particularly for the outdoors. 
This past summer, West Coast helped a Nike team celebrate the end of one of Oregon’s most iconic races, the Hood To Coast Relay, by planning a party on Cannon Beach — complete with BBQ, music, and much needed relaxation. 
Beach Barbecue Setup with Adirondack Chairs
The Hood to Coast relay is a staggering 199 mile long race, so in the planning process, we knew providing the team with comfortable, yet stylish and logistically sound seating was imperative for the beach bash. Holding the event right on Cannon Beach also imposed other considerations as well—checking tide tables, navigating delivery trucks around Frisbees, dogs, and sun bathers, and having to park 150 feet away from the site to avoid sinking sand were among these challenges.

The furniture we selected had to be comfortable certainly, but also easily transported and stored which is why we ultimately choose to use Designed for Outdoors’ signature folding Adirondack chairs that worked seamlessly in the set. 

The beach conditions and questionable weather forecast made it imperative that the rentals selected also be durable and weather proof. The signature Adirondack’s Honey Gold polyurethane stain is UV and moisture proof, offering a great solution for the Nike racer’s event, and most importantly from an event planner’s perspective, a fabulous sheen! 
Adirondack Chairs circle Fire Pits on Cannon Beach

West Coast built two fire pits, and circled the Adirondacks around both to provide optimal areas for socializing and swapping race stories and protein-packed recipes around the fire. The Adirondack chairs elicited the perfect vibe for the laid back evening on the beach. We’re looking forward to offering our clients unique seating with the Adirondacks that encapsulates the Northwest through seating not often seen at events.

When choosing Adirondacks for a gathering, be it a large outdoor gala or intimate occasion at your home, it’s important to keep supplemental décor natural and understated to maintain a consistent vision. Hanging lantern lighting

and incorporating neutral colored centerpieces or florals can be very complimentary. If you’re looking to create a natural and casual, while polished look for an outdoor event, Adirondack and stained wood chairs are a great option.

Natural centerpieces compliment Adirondack seating. Use neutral color floral elements for a more elegant look, or lively colors of an eclectic mix of flowers for a casual atmosphere. Lantern lighting provides the perfect ambiance for a laid back but polished gathering.
