When it comes to planning your kid’s birthday party, you want every last detail to be perfect. Who doesn’t? They are, after all, your pride and joy. From finding the perfect venue to designing a birthday cake that they will love, you have a lot to do to make sure that the party is one that your little child will talk about and remember for years to come. This how-to guide, for instance is to help you pick the perfect venue for your child’s big day. When picking a venue for your child’s birthday party, keep the following tips in mind:
The Venue’s Stance On Food And Drinks
While venues that offer to cater for the party are great for last minute birthday parties, if you want to throw a memorable birthday party for your child, plan on catering the party yourself and taking lots of pictures. DIY foods and drinks can significantly improve the mood of any party.
Instead of the usual pizza or snacks served, when you provide the food and drinks yourself, you have the option of presenting your kid with a birthday cake as an unusual one; to serve each dish on plates that are in line with the theme of the party; and to customize the small details (if you want to ), such as napkin holders and tablecloths. If you are getting a caterer for the birthday party, make sure to check what is actually included in the catering price and how much food and drinks will be served.
You do not want to waste money and not get value.
The Venue’s Stance On Wall Decorations
Just how plates and napkin holders can significantly affect the feel of a party, so can wall decorations. Whether you want to hang a few homemade “Happy Birthday” signs or you want to go all out with wall décor and balloons, you should be able to. This is your kid’s birthday party, and you should be able to celebrate in a way that is as special for him or her. When checking venues, ask about their stance on wall décor. Those that don’t have a problem with it should be given highest consideration.
Private Vs. Shared Space
Private space is definitely preferable over a shared space. It allows you to create the intimate birthday party environment that you desire. Moreover, if you go for a shared space, you will need more hands on deck to watch the little ones, as they will be more willing to commingle with another party’s members.
If you get a private venue, you will be able to bring your own music and entertainment which is sure to create an even more fun mood. If it is a public space, ask the venue if you are able to bring and play music.
The Amount Of Space You Will Need
Finally, consider how much space you will need for the party. Are you hiring live entertainment, such as a comedian or balloon maker? If you plan on hiring entertainment, you want to make sure that the event venue has enough room to accommodate the performer’s act.
Even if you don’t plan on hiring a performer, you will still need enough space to accommodate all of your party guests, whether the final count is 20 or 50. Check also if there is enough parking space for all the guests and parents or a designated drop-off and pick up area. If parents are also invited, think about great ways to get them involved in the festivities.
