In this article, we’re going to cover everything from finding the perfect place for your birthday party, to how much it will cost and how much preparation you’ll need beforehand. Read on to learn more about how to plan the perfect birthday!

When Is the Best Time to Have a Birthday Party?

Before beginning the process of planning where your birthday party venue is going to be, you need to pick a time when everyone is going to be free. Here are a few options in regards to timing: 

During School Holidays: If you have a child whose birthday is coming up, school holidays are the perfect time to host a children’s birthday party as all school children will be available in this timeframe. 

Winter Birthday Party: Is Christmas your favourite time of year? If so, why not mix the two celebrations by making your birthday party winter/Christmas-themed. Most people who are employed usually have a couple of weeks off during this time too. 

Weekends: Weekends are a brilliant choice when it comes to hosting a birthday party. Whether that be for an adult or child, people in school and work are almost guaranteed to have Saturday and Sunday off. Not to mention, if you are hosting a party for an adult, there may be alcoholic beverages involved and nobody likes going to work with a hangover! 

Places To Have A Party : 

Where To Have 10-Year-Old Birthday Party:

Soft Play Birthday Party

An obvious choice for a toddler’s birthday party would be a playground or play area. Every child gets enjoyment out of visiting the playground, whether it’s indoors or outdoors. The best part about this idea is the fact you hardly have to put any effort or time into organising this. All you have to do is book a slot for a play area. Usually, they will host parties for kids and provide birthday souvenirs. Also, they will use birthday decorations to decorate the whole soft play area. 

Swimming Pools

Another simple yet entertaining choice would be a swimming pool party which is always loads of fun for children. This could be an outdoor or indoor pool, depending on the weather where you live. The children get to play in the water and use the fun water slides and on some occasions, the lifeguards will provide pool inflatables and obstacle courses, especially for inflatable swimming pool parties.

At-Home Party

This may sound less entertaining for children, however, an indoor party or an outdoor party may be the exact party venue you desire! If you host an indoor party you could create/purchase a buffet filled with party food such as; sandwiches, cakes, mini sausage rolls, chocolate, etc. You could even make party bags filled with treats for the children. If you decide to host an outdoor party, you could hire a clown or even rent a bouncy castle for the day!

Ice Skating Parties

If your child is interested in an action-themed party, then laser gun parties are perfect for this. The children would be split up into groups or sometimes even pairs and will be provided with laser guns for an awesome, action-filled battle against each other!
