It’s that time of year again - your child’s birthday! This year, you want to throw an amazing birthday party to celebrate this great time in your family’s life. And so the search for the perfect place for the party begins - but where do you start? Finding a venue for parties can be daunting because it determines what fun food, games and other unique experiences you can plan for your guests. What should you keep in mind when it comes to finding a party venue your birthday child and the whole family can enjoy?

At SpacetoCo, we’re all about keeping things simple and stress-free. Kids parties don’t have to be complicated, and you don’t have to do everything Pinterest suggests. Start with your priorities. What are the main things you want to achieve through your kids birthday party? Is it to keep your wallet happy? For your child and guests to have fun? To have the kids froth over the food? Or to celebrate in a unique way with a memorable party experience? Put your goals in order of importance and this will help you look out for the perfect venue suitable for birthday parties (and keep your stress levels and budget low).

Let’s have a look at some of these goals and awesome New Zealand venues for birthday parties to consider!

Low budget? Free play!

If keeping your wallet happy is your main priority, try out venues with heaps of space for free play - just BYO party games and activities! Eastdale Hub hosted by Avondale Community Action in Auckland, is an affordable venue with a large reserve the kids can run around in, a community BBQ and a shaded area for rainy days. The Johnny Mitchell Hall in Auckland is also a great place to host an affordable party, with the Tole Park Reserve nearby for extra outdoor space for the kids. Just bring a rugby ball, some cones, and away you go!

Low Stress? Fun Games at the Venue!

If an awesome birthday party for the kids means having fun things to do (and not having to think about how to entertain them), then venues that provide activities and party games could be what you're looking for. Your child's birthday could be hosted at Cloud39 in South East Auckland where they have a dedicated kids play area with heaps of toys already at the venue. Or what about having your child's birthday party at West Auckland's Encounter Christian Centre? With an outdoor playground, sandpit and heaps of indoor toys and games, you can let the kids roam free, knowing they'll have fun no matter what!

Memorable Party? Unique Experiences!

If you want your child to have one of the most memorable parties ever, why not host it at one of our out-of-the-box venues? TenForward in Central Auckland is a gaming themed space suitable for these types of birthday parties, complete with a wall of Xboxes and a bunch of laptops for the kids to play with. For fun non-screen activities for the kids, what about having your party at Escapist Entertainment in Hamilton? Gaming themed, Escapist has a large collection of board games or better yet, an option to use the space for free if you opt for an escape room experience and food! Each of these options can be the perfect place for your child’s next birthday party, with unique experiences the whole family can enjoy!

Great food? Think cafe or DIY!

You have plenty of options when it comes to keeping everyone at your child’s birthday party well fed. You could opt for a venue that provides food already - think Fusion Cafe in Ponsonby, Auckland, serving up an all day menu with All Press Coffee while the kids play on the outdoor playground and sandpit! If you’re a chef in the making and want to cater the party yourself, a venue like The Courtyard Room hosted by St Luke’s Church and Community Centre in central Auckland could be the perfect place for you. Just cook up a storm at home and use the venue’s kitchenette to do final prep and plating up!

Planning your child’s next birthday party, especially looking for the perfect place to host, doesn’t have to be stressful if you prioritise your goals. Remember to keep it simple, knowing that there are plenty of venues in New Zealand to choose from to fit your needs. That’ll free you up to focus on being fun and dedicated party hosts for your child and their guests!

Reviews from our customers

“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!”

Allison, Ampersand Collective

“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”

Jennifer, PaperBird Books

“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!”

Karen, Conscious Cravings

“SpacetoCo has made it so much easier for me to find unique trendy shop spaces for my popup shops. What I love about this service is that I can do a popup shop anytime I want. The booking process is user friendly & very reliable. I will continue to use their service for sure!”

Alexandar, Ikuku Athletics

“Didn’t realise it would be this easy”

Kara, City of Tea Tree Gully

“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.”
