Picking the venue of a party is the first and most important step of planning a party!
If you are going to hold the party at a house, make sure that you have a space big enough all the activities going around. Be sure to clean the house before the party to ensure that the guests will be comfortable. An empty 40sqm living room (average singapore living room) should be enough to accommodate a cozy party of 20 kids and 30 guests.
Childcares and schools
A childcare or school is the most fuss-free location to hold your kid’s birthday party; no booking or money is needed, you do not have to worry about attendance of the little ones. All you’ve got to do is to check with the teachers when would be a good time to hold the party. Parties held here are usually short (1 hr – 1.5hr).
Condominium function rooms are the most popular venue for birthday parties, and booking of function rooms are mostly free of charge! Do ensure that the activities planned are able to fit in the function room especially if you”re getting a bouncy castle.
Common areas under HDB
If you are staying in a HDB and the living area is not big enough to accommodate all the guests that you are inviting, the common area under the HDB is the best way to go. Once it”s booked, you will get access to the power-points and water-points. The booking fee varies from areas to areas; the range is around $20 – $100 per day depending on the venue. Bookings can only be made 3 months prior to the event date. For example the earliest you can book for a party on 1st April is 1st Jan. I always advise my clients to book the areas as early as possible as they are hot spots to hold parties, weddings and events etc, and it is based on a first come first serve basis.
Other spaces available for rental
If you are holding a grand party that the house or function rooms can’t accommodate, or are planning a last minute party and all the spaces available are fully booked, don’t worry. You can always check out restaurants and cafes or hotel function rooms! Many restaurants do offer the place for free when you order their food catering! 🙂 PartyMojo do work with a few venue partners and we do help you to book the venues if our services are booked.
