Calling all proud parents! It goes without saying that celebrating your child’s life is a special occasion that calls for a birthday party. But planning kids birthday parties can be challenging, especially when it comes to finding a venue. Besides all of the usual criteria, the perfect place has to be family friendly to cater for all of the party guests of different ages and stages. So what else do you need to keep in mind? Here are SpacetoCo’s top five things that make a birthday party venue family friendly (and six awesome examples of Auckland venues), to help you plan your birthday child's party!
Open spaces for party fun - Adults can have a great time sitting for hours at a birthday party chatting, but we all know children have heaps of energy to burn! So look out for open spaces at your child’s birthday party venue for the kids to run around and roam free. The Onepoto Domain Hall in Auckland's North Shore is a great kids birthday party venue, as it has heaps of space for free play outside - just bring a couple of sports balls or outdoor activities and have fun!
Entertainment for the whole family - What activities and equipment does your venue have in way of fun? See if they have party games, toys or a playground on site so that the kids have a great time at your child's birthday party. The early learning centre at West Auckland's Encounter Christian Centre is a great kids birthday party venue, complete with an outdoor playspace, sandpit and heaps of fun toys to play with. Plus it has a television so the adults can have a great time at the party too - karaoke, anyone?
Seating for all ages - Unless you don't mind children sitting on their parents' laps all day, seating is important to think about when planning your child's birthday party. For your child's special occasion, look out for venues that offer chairs, tables and other equipment for kids, like the Garden Room hosted by the Grey Lynn Community Centre in Central Auckland.
Accessibility and places to feed, change and unwind - When going to parties, parents need to plan ahead especially when it comes to feeding and changing their kids, so keeping this in mind for your child's birthday party venue will make you a hit with your guests. Central Auckland's Owairaka Community House is a great space for a kids birthday party as it allows you to have dedicated party rooms for feeding and changing, and even quiet rooms for guests who have sensory needs. While you're at it, think about accessibility for your party guests that have special needs. The Blockhouse Bay Community Centre just outside of New Zealand's biggest city is wheelchair friendly with options for designated car parks and a disabled toilet.
Anything that saves time and money - Family life is hectic and crazy in its own unique way, so convenience is king when planning your child’s next birthday party! For example, free parking means fewer minutes driving around looking for a park (especially in Auckland!), and a kitchen on site can make it cheaper for party hosts to serve their own food. Luckily for you, the Remuera Baptist Church Hall just outside of Auckland City has all of the above, making it a great venue for kids birthday parties.
Parents, being party hosts doesn't have to be stressful. We hope that this list helps you take the hassle out of planning your kid's birthday party and that you have fun yourselves. After all, your child's birthday is also a special occasion celebrating YOU as awesome parents and life-givers!
Reviews from our customers
“I was delighted to find the space. It is a unique space in the heart of the city that strikes the perfect balance between practicality and style. The booking process, the facilities and the service were impeccable, and the space itself is cool. It was perfect for our recent media event.”
“SpacetoCo is a great solution for finding beautiful, interesting and affordable spaces. I often run small and medium-sized events and I’ve already been able to find two gorgeous new venues for hosting them. It takes the guesswork and endless searching out. I’m looking forward to exploring more!”
“SpacetoCo has helped me turn a bit of extra space in our office into a thriving co-working space in the heart of Subiaco. As a host, I love the transparency and flexibility I have with the platform, allowing us to manage bookings, guest payments and communication in one area. We get local and national enquiries from SpacetoCo for people needing a hot desk or workshop space for an hour, a day or a month, and I love that they can find Ampersand Collective without any extra work required from me!”
“The multiple dates booking is obscenely easy to use. In fact, the whole process was super smooth.”
“Didn’t realise it would be this easy”
“Being situated in the Heritage Moores Building on Henry St in the heart of Fremantle, we recognised that our Spaces were desired by many but known only by a few. SpacetoCo offered us a chance to not only streamline our processes around the booking of Space but gave us an opportunity to be exposed to a wider audience. We’ve since taken bookings for weddings, baby showers, documentary shoots and group workshops. The power of local people accessing local space is a vision we share with SpacetoCo, and one that I would encourage all business owners to consider”
