choice 1 - plan a party at my home

good - no time limit on the venue, kids can play in pool (if we go that causal) or with video games in the play room

bad - every one would have to travel about 1.5 hours to get here

chioce 2 - plan a party at a nice venue near all the guest.

good - closer to everyone

bad - cost extra to provide entertainment for kids, there would be a time limit on the venue.


I have a very generous budget so either one will be equally as nice.  I will have both catered and decorated.

is there like a hotel closer to your family, with a pool, arcade or something? usually you can rent halls in hotels and still have access to their amenities...

I've done both.  Option 2 is less hassle.

would be less hassle for the guests but more for me the party planner because everything would be out of town for me.  I could do a lot on line but touring the venues, tastings, etc would be multiple trips for me.

This is what we did for my grandparents 50th.  And the family booked them a room at the hotel for the night too.

2. No ones running around your home, clogging toilets or spilling wine. I think meeting somewhere in the middle of the 1.5 hr drive is fair.
