It seems like kids’ birthday parties are getting bigger and bigger every year. No doubt if you have kids you’ll have been to some elaborate events, with parties including an entire class. The pressure to hold elaborate events can be overwhelming. There may be an expectation that you will welcome up to 30 of your kids’ nearest and dearest.
We can help you take the fuss out of your celebrations.
Venue hire can be extremely budget friendly:
Hosting a party does not have to break the bank. Vennu has some of the best party venues for hire for as little as $25 per hour. These spaces will give the kids all the room they need to run around and have a great time. Luckily, many are blank canvases so the birthday child can choose their theme and you can bring in your decorations. They may even have enough room for you to have defined spaces for food, games, and adults.
Here are some of our favourites
BETTER YET, MANY OF THE VENUES ARE PERFECT, RAIN, HAIL OR SHINE
Unpredictable weather can end an outdoor birthday party in tears. To ensure your party goes off without a hitch, look for venues that have both indoor and outdoor space, giving you the best of both worlds. You’ll be covered no matter what Mother Nature throws at you. Plus, you’ll have the added benefit of private bathrooms, kitchen space and heating and cooling.
Let them eat cake:
With the rising cost of living, feeding up to 30 little ones and several adults is a daunting task especially when you consider that Australia has the highest level of food allergies in the world. However, you don’t need to hire a fancy caterer, just keep it simple. Sandwiches on regular and gluten-free bread can be made the night before and cutting up fruit and veggies is an easy way to keep everyone happy. When it comes to the main event, the birthday cake, having a few gluten-free cupcakes on hand (there are quite a few packet mix options at the supermarket) just in case is always a good idea.
Putting the good in goody bags:
Even though it’s your kids’ birthday party, goody bags for everyone who attends are generally expected. You don’t need to go over the top with these, remember they’re just a small thank you. They can be as simple as some sweets in paper bags which can be sourced for under $1 per bag. Or you can skip the candy together and pick up 30-piece themed goody bag kits for around $10. Whichever route you choose the kids are sure to love them.
