Want to have a party outside the home? There are many places you can go, some you may not have even thought of. Before you decide take a look at what you need to know before you go. Also see EZParty Points and Ponders for the difference between ‘Home’ and ‘Away’ parties.

The Basics of Planning a Party at a Different Location

When planning on where to go for your party think about the following and be prepared to ask questions about the party place to determine your cost.

Food

  • Are there set menu’s that you can choose from?
  • What is on the menu? Is it appropriate for your party guests?
  • Are there other food alternatives available, i.e. allergies (nuts), vegetarians?
  • Can you bring in your own food i.e. cake?

Time and Place

  • How many guests can they accommodate? Is there a minimum amount of guests that can attend and a maximum that they can hold?
  • How long can you stay?
  • Activities available? Entertainment?
  • If the party is outside is there a ‘Plan B’ should the weather be bad?

Extras

For children’s parties the place is the theme. Do they provide invitations, party favours, goodie bags, decorations? If not can you bring your own?

Cost

After determining the above estimate the cost per person, compare to your budget.

Cost Saving Tips

  • Co-host with a friend or relative. A joint party can be fun and you save on the costs.
  • Pick an off time for the party. For example pick a weeknight rather than a weekend or select an earlier date for a Christmas party.
  • Don’t plan the party at a meal time, have appetizers or snacks instead.
