Kids Party Location Planning 101
If this is your first time arranging a kids party outside the
home, ask friends and neighbors for recommendations, or recall
where your kids were invited to a party venue that they especially
enjoyed. Then, schedule way ahead enough time (at least a month
or two) to reserve a date and time.
When making a reservation, be prepared to answer questions about
age of your child, the special occasion, and the approximate number
of kids and grown-ups that will be attending.
In turn, be sure you ask about decorations, food and cake. Is
there entertainment provided or can you provide your own? Does
the party venue come complete with invitations and/or directions
you can mail to your guests?
To keep costs down, consider a community center in your area
that simply rents out space while parents provide the food, decorations
Whatever you decide, it's always a good idea to have other moms
or dads to help out with supervision, especially with small toddlers
If birthday gifts are opened, be sure to have a safe and discreet
place to keep them and - last but not least - always be sure to leave enough room in the car trunk
to haul all that good birthday loot home!
