Keeping Your Crowd Cool At Outdoor Events
by The Writing Team of

As heat waves continue to roll across the nation, planners who have upcoming outdoor events may tend to panic. How in the world are you going to keep your guests cool and comfortable if the weather turns blistering?

Of course, there are always portable air conditioners and fans, but if that stretches the budget or exceeds the power supply, you have some other options.

A Cool Damp Towel

Nothing feels more refreshing than a cool, damp cloth when the temperature is feverish. You can offer your guests that sensation with individualized, 100 percent cotton, pre-moistened towels. Patterned after the traditional oshibori nakins offered before a meal at restaurants in Japan, they can be used on hands, faces or even feet. It's a snap to chill down the packages in a refrigerator or freezer before the event.

These napkins come in different sizes and scents including lemon, lavender and peach mango. They are also available unscented. A nice added touch is that you can customize the packaging to include your branding or sponsor information. One source:
