If you have kids and you love them as much as mine, then I can surely understand why you’re reading this material right now. You just want the best for your little lovies and I cannot agree more with you. I may be a mother of two now but I’m still a doting mom as ever. If I can, I would give the universe to my children if that would make them happy. As much as we don’t want to spoil our little ones, we can’t help but want to make the best of their lives. And we do these for reasons that are quite understandable.
Our children spend a fourth or a fifth of their lives with us at most. After they turn 18 or graduate university, most of them would want to leave the nest and start exploring the world on their own. We all know that this time will eventually come. In fact, you may even often dwell on it. Thoughts of your baby growing up may sometimes keep you up a night and we parents can all very much relate. No matter how old your children are or become, they will forever be your little munchkins and you know that. Check this out: https://www.parentingni.org/blog/time-together-importance/.
This is why I think most of us want to make them feel like they lived out their best childhood with us. Maybe, unconsciously, we want them to remember all the happy times they’ve had when we used to be the most (if not the only) important thing in their lives. We want to immortalize these memories and make them survive the passage of time. This is why we can’t help but spoil their hearts full. We just want them to feel the happiest when they’re with us.
So for your child’s upcoming birthday, I understand why you would want to make it extra special. You probably want this birthday and all of the succeeding birthdays to go down in their memories’ hall of fame. So that no matter how much time passes or how much distance separates you in the future, they will know that there won’t ever be anyone who would love them as much as you do.
Since I share the very same sentiments with you, allow me to help you decide what kind of party venues would be ideal for your child’s upcoming birthday. There are many factors that go into making this decision. Let’s just hope that I can at least extend some help in most of them. Well, here we go.
Things To Consider When Choosing A Good Venue
Time of Year
I would say that the season your child is born in is a very important consideration. Why? Well, it’s because you can only rent certain venues when it is weather permitting. For example, if you want to hold a birthday party outdoors, you should take note of the weather for the day of the celebration (read more).
If you don’t have the necessary equipment to keep the rain away, for example, and it is expected to rain on your child’s birthday, it would be best to just hold the party indoors. There are plenty of great places to celebrate the birthday and have your guests feel comfortable. Also, you should take note of the temperature outside so that you can decide whether to rent an air-conditioned place or open air space for the celebration.
Number of Guests
The number of your expected attendees is also very important. Take note that when inviting people, you should make your child’s best interests a priority. Normally, a young kid would appreciate attendees of his or her age so that they can play games and have fun together. Inviting so many adults to a children’s party is definitely not something your little one will appreciate so be sure to round up lots of playmates.
As for the venue, you have to choose a place that would accommodate your expected number of guests plus a little extra. After all, there are times when you invite people the last minute so it would be ideal to rent a spacious place to hold the event. Also, children’s parties tend to be rowdy and a little chaotic so having the extra room to breathe will definitely be in everyone’s best interests.
Setup & Arrangement
Is the party going to follow a buffet or plated style for the meals? Let’s be real here: Most people attend parties to enjoy good food so you should include the setup and arrangement of the goodies into consideration. If it’s a children’s party, hosting it in the afternoon and preparing snacks should be ideal. You can rent little tables and chairs for the young tykes as well to save space. The way your tables will be setup should be considered in advance so that you can plan the best use for the space you’re renting.
Kidtropolis, for example, has 8 party rooms available for rental. You can rent it for 2 hours or more and the venue includes: Cutlery, napkins, paper plates, party entertainment vendors, and more. Birthdays at kidtropolis have always managed to meet every doting parent’s expectations.
Children love themed parties. In fact, themed parties are usually the ones they remember most. If it’s a girl, she might like a princess or Barbie-themed party, complete with pink balloons and cute loot bags. If it’s a boy then maybe a Toy Story or Superman-themed party would be fun. You can decorate accordingly and invite mascots to the party for the kids to enjoy. You should choose your venue after you have decided on a theme. Well, if ever you’re going with a themed celebration, that is.
Depending on the theme, you may need more space to setup decorations or stage performances. You might also host activities that are theme-related and that may also require considerable space for the play area. All these things must be considered in advanced if you want your child to enjoy the best party ever and for you to also rest easy and worry less when the celebration takes off.
