Whether it is your toddler’s third birthday or a Sweet 16, you want to plan a party that creates a memorable event, from décor to activities and food.
Where do you want to have this party? Is it an indoor or outdoor venue? If it's outdoor, what's the back-up plan if there's inclement weather? Figuring out the answers to all of these questions should be done at the very beginning of the planning process.
This might seem self-explanatory, but choosing a date in advance is the first step in planning a birthday party. Many venues book several weeks in advance, so you'll want to adjust accordingly. Pro tip: have a back-up date in mind in case your first choice isn't available at your chosen venue.
3. Number of attendees
This number is super important when determining what types of activities you want to do. Whether you're inviting the whole class or just bringing a small group, it's vital to know how many people your chosen venue can accommodate.
4. Types of activities
Your ideal birthday party activity might be laser tag, it might be a movie, or it might be something else entirely. Figuring out what you want to be doing will help you figure out where you want to be.
There are some venues where you need to bring your own food and decorations, and others where they provide all of that and don't allow outside food at all. Asking these questions upfront can help eliminate confusion with your venue down the road.
