1st Birthday Party?

Posted by on Aug. 31, 2010 at 6:11 PM

Does anyone know of a good place to have my sons 1st birthday party? There are tons of kids places but I'm looking for more of a hall or banquet because it will be mostly adults. We are inviting 75 people and only about 10 of them are children.  Everywhere I call is about $400 to rent. That is too much money for us for only a 3 hour birthday party! I could understand for a wedding to pay that much, but we were looking for cheaper. Any suggestions would be helpful! Thanks everyone!

I know there are mamas in your area in here. Hopefully they can give you some more specific ideas! I'm all the way up in Northern NJ so I'm not sure of an exact place! But here's a *BUMP*

Try VFW or the fire station (if they have a hall, as my DH's does).

VFW hall are great and not expenise at all. We had our wedding recpetion there. We pay about 300.00 to rent out the hall. We had out food cater, we bought our on drink but did have some aholich serve and I think they charge on 50.00 for it. Check out to see if there is on in your area.

What about a park? Lots of them are free or really cheap to rent out the space.  Most fire houses and halls around me run at least $400.00 to rent out too.  

Here are some links:
