Renting Venues For Birthday Parties

There are many factors to consider when choosing the venue for a birthday party. You want a space that will fit all of your guests, allow for entertaining games, and provide ample space for food and cake. At Island Event Planners, our work is to ensure you’re getting the perfect birthday venue. In order to have a memorable birthday party, there are some things you ought to keep in mind when it comes to venue selection.

The Party Size

A good rule of thumb when estimating how many guests you will invite is to plan for 15 percent more than what you actually want. Think of it as a guest list buffer! Should your relatives or best friends decide to stay longer, you don’t want any empty spots at the table. Stagger the arrival times of the first and second waves.

Once you know your guest numbers, look to see where they live in relation to the location of the event venue. Our team can help handle all logistics, from finding the perfect birthday venues to organizing the catering.

Choose an Extravagant Location

Every couple would like their wedding reception venue to be exotic and intriguing for their guests. Our venue on the waterfront side of the famous City Island, Bronx, is nothing like you have seen before. The sea view can make every guest dream he is somewhere else while being a few miles from the city center. Being a short distance from the famous seafood restaurants and the natural harbor full of standing boats, our venue can give you and your friends or family the best memories from your wedding party.

Event Location

It might seem obvious to rent a venue that’s close to your home, but you may not always live in an area that is convenient. You can avoid some of the banquet hall and business venue options by looking at the event calendar for any local fairs and festivals that are overlapping with your birthday party date. Many of these events will have spaces available for rent if they have been closed for the day.

The Event Food and Entertainment Options

While food is the main event of any birthday party, it is important to remember how many guests you are inviting. If you are hosting a very large event for 100 people, you likely won’t want to be responsible for a huge buffet with all-you-can-eat chicken wings. You can save on some costs by holding a potluck affair at an indoor venue that allows some food-sharing during your party hours.

Similarly, you may not want to hire a DJ if you are renting a public space that already has music playing. You can save money by bringing in some musical instruments and letting the professional venue personnel handle the microphone. You will also want to look for age-appropriate activities for your party guests so that they have fun without getting bored or potentially injured.

Work With A Birthday Party Planner

At Island Event Planners, we can assist with customizing your birthday party. You can be as creative as you like with a party that is held in a commercial venue.

You may think that renting a venue for your birthday party is expensive, but it really depends on the type of venue. For example, if you want to rent out a public space like a park or community center, then there’s little to no cost to do so.

If you’re looking for something more upscale and personal, like renting out a restaurant or hotel banquet room for your event, then the fees can start to add up and are dependent on the size of your group and what you plan on doing at your event. Remember to make your venue selection at least three months prior to your event so that there will be time for planning and party preparation.
