  • We are having my son's party at my parents house. It's have a lot of parking, a huge yard, a couple ponds to feed the fish for all the kids, and everyone knows where it is at. But if you are in a city, what fun places are around that you can afford for the number of guests you want?

  • At home. At that age they aren't really into destination birthday parties yet, and they are still young enough to have meltdowns if over stimulated. Save the desitination parties for when they are old enough to have little friends.

  • If it is a nice day---in your backyard. If it is raining, in your living room. I see no point in going somehwere and spending a bunch of money. Really. It is getting to be a competition lately with Moms trying to outdo each other with the best and biggest birthday parties. How silly and pretentious,.The kids don't care. If they play games,win prizes and eat cake,that's all they need.

  • for that young I would have it at home or a church/community center if you dont have the room or access to something like that. If you really want to have it somewhere else we had my daughters 3rd birthday party at a bowling alley because we were visiting family and didnt have a place to do it. The kids had tons of fun, they had bumpers and a little ramp thing for the kids to push the ball down.

  • I agree w/ PP. Have it at home, weather permitting in your backyard. If you dont think your house is big enough, maybe a family member's house. Or a city park.

  • I had mine at the Martial Arts studio where my husband works, just because there wasn't enough room in my own house, LOL.
