Finding an Inexpensive Hall for a 1st Birthday Party

I am trying to throw a 1st birthday party, but can't find a nice hall that is not so expensive. Any help?

I agree, have the party at home. But, if your home isn't big enough and you live in a community with a club house inquire about renting it for the day. Typically your community clubhouse will be inexpensive and the money goes back into your community fees.

Have the party at home. You don't need to invite that many people and a 1 year old isn't going to know if he/she has a huge fancy party.

Why would you need a hall? No 12 month old child needs a gala! He/she will not appreciate it, nor remember it. They get overstimulated, eat cake and throw up. Enjoy a small, at home gathering with family or a few close friends. If your family (or both sides) expect more, let them host it. You could also have several small parties. If you just want to do something fun, go for small now; and have a picnic at a local park (where you can reserve a pavillion) in the good weather.

Go to a senior citizens center (ours here in NC rents for $75 for 4 hours and that includes a kitchen with a sink, a stove, oven and microwave, tables and chairs for approx. 60.

Got a grandparent in a nursing home - get the elderly invovled and let them have the party there where they stay - there is usually a extra side room that they are able to use to entertain their guests for free...you could bring in drinks, chips, pop corn and a cake. I am sure that everyone involved with it would be very,very happy AND more then glad to help you with the party.

Nursing home residents are so lonely... invite them to the party too! Good Luck and keep us informed in what you end up doing!

A big party for a 1 year old isn't for the child, but for the parents. You need to first be honest about what you are doing. Have you checked your church's hall, other churches in your neighborhood will rent their halls out, many city parks have enclosed pavillions, a VFW hall, often restaurants or pizza places will rent out their party room, a park gazebo, renting the city swimming pool, schools will often allow you to use their cafeteria, gymnasium, or playgrounds.
