Birthday Party Venues for the Young and the “Not-so-young”

One of the most important aspects of hosting a birthday party  is choosing the perfect venue. A number of factors must be taken into consideration when you plan the location of the birthday party. Will it be large enough? Will it be too large? If it’s outdoors, does it have covering in case it rains? Is there ample parking? Is it a convenient location for most of your guests? Is it too formal? Is it too casual? Does it have staff to assist you? Tables and chairs? Food? Drinks? There are many things to consider when choosing your birthday party location.
