The Portland Chapter of International Live Events Association (ILEA) held its ever-popular Art of the Party tabletop competition at Vibrant Table Catering & Events on May 24. The fierce but friendly competition didn’t disappoint, showcasing designs ranging from grand elegance to colorful whimsy. 

Chances are, you won’t know you’re living through history until it’s too late. It’s already happening. A chain reaction has been set in motion and the ground has begun to slide beneath your feet.

Portland will be home to the first Ritz-Carlton in the Pacific Northwest. Developer BPM Real Estate Group is bringing the brand to the city, with an anticipated opening in early 2023. Plans call for a 35-story tower with 251 hotel rooms and 138 residential units, including eight penthouses.
