     Throwing A Party At Home VS. A Party Place

   Every parent has a lot on their plate, from taking care of their children to going to work.  Which hardly ever leaves free time. Now try adding your child’s birthday party. Putting together what seems to be the best day ever. Except, this year you decided to do your child’s birthday party at home and somehow you’re going to manage to take your so little spare time to organize the party. You the have the location obviously, your home but what about everything else?
              From food to set up to clean up, this whole party is going to be on you. Every last detail haunting you till the day of the party. For starters, you have to get pizza, drinks and just about enough for both parents and kids even the ones who haven’t rvsp'd yet. So that about on average is about between $100-$200 dollars. Oh by the way that’s not counting parental guests. Moving on to decorations. That’s about another $100-$250 dollars on a few banners, plates, napkins, etc. Next you got the cake which rounds about another $150-$300 dollars. Of course you can always make the cake yourself but who’s got time for that. You have a lot of work to do. Alright now that you prepared everything, what are the kids going to do during the party? Will it be a rented bouncy castle ($150-$400), or a costumed character ($250) or maybe a magician ($250-$450) or the photo booth ($400)? And don’t forget about the tip on top of that. Finally you’re done. The party’s set up, the food is in order, the entertainer is coming and the cake is on its way. Two, three hours pass and the party is over. Your child is ecstatic and you’re exhausted. Except it isn’t over yet. It’s time to clean up the mess all the kids made. Don’t worry it will only take a few hours. Finally you’re finished.
         The party was a knockout and all went well. So you proceed to do the math and calculate how much you spent all together on the party, it landed to over $1000 dollars. Now you decided to see how many hours you spent organizing the party, which was close to about a whole day.  Look on the bright side the venue was free.
           Unfortunately, you’re not done yet. Your daughter’s sixth birthday is coming up which means it’s time to throw another party. Except this time you don’t want to spend all those hours organizing, cleaning up, shopping, etc. So you start to look for other options, maybe a birthday party place. You find one near your house called MaxAdventures. By doing a birthday party place there, you’re going to save the time and energy of setting up, plus the entertainment comes with the birthday party places, tons of games, a soft play gym, huge beach ball pit, arcades, virtual reality, laser maze, glow in the dark party, pie in the face, dancing, photo booth, bouncy house and much more. This will also be good if you party contains kids of various ages, so no one will feel left out or bored. Of course you can always invite your adult friends and they can even participate in all the fun activities and games. Food and cake comes with the party place, so that already eliminates shopping time for decorations, food and entertainment. Not to mention, the best part you don’t have to spend the time cleaning up food it’s all done for you. So in the end all you have to do is focus on you and your kid having the best day ever. Luckily the birthday party packages start anywhere from $795 and go up. That is right about the same if making the party at home. In the end your daughter's sixth birthday went perfect and this time you didn’t have to go through the hassle and you can enjoy the day with your family.
