The question of where to hold the party comes about 1 month before my nephew’s 2 year old birthday.
My nephew is fortunate to have both stay-home grandmas and a maid looking after him. When it comes to birthdays, there is no option of saying “Let’s celebrate in school” and doing away with the issue of venue, decoration and guest list like I did.
They feel their apartment is too small. You invite 5 kids there is already 15- 20 people in the house since parents and maids are definitely coming along too. Any way, cleaning up the house after a party is not exactly a smart way of spending limited bonding time with the kids. So what are the options when it comes to finding a place to party for a few hours?
So, here goes the brain storming session:
Me: Hmmm so how much you wanna spent?
Answer: Not too sure how much all this will cost. About $200 plus? Definitely no going to be more than $400 for everything.
The session ended with me promising to exercise my google search skills for the purpose.
So here are the places I found featuring the packages that meet the above requirements. Most of the places have a variation of packages to fit different needs. The information below is a rough indication for reference only.
