Kids Party Planning on a Budget, Affordable Venues in the Illawarra!

 Jenny Henderson Mon 7 October 19



What busy parent doesn't love the time consuming challenge of arranging and hosting a beautiful kids birthday party!?

If outsourcing the paaaartay fun to a venue who provides all the entertainment isn't within reach of your budget, fear not!

If you'd love to get the local park for free but you are worried about the weather, fear not!

We've chatted to Vennu who are the experts in budget Illawarra / Wollongong Venue Hire for kids parties (or any get together, celebration or community event actually!) and here are some awesome, cost effective local venues (from $20 p/hr) which you can book for your kids party - plus how to keep down the costs!

Thanks Vennu for sharing your wisdom, here we go parents - get inspired!

1. Find a local, cost effective kids party venue that is clean, safe and practical and means the party can take place rain, hail or shine so you don't have to add 'praying to the weather gods' onto your to-do list - Vennu offers you around 50 community spaces and venues of all sizes across the North and South Illawarra, plus Wollongong - click here to find your ideal budget venue!

2. Book the party time not at lunch or dinner (so you only have to cater for snacks, not full meal options) eg 9.30am-11.30am.

3. DIY catering saves heaps of money and can be prepped the night before, eg fruit and veggie platters, bowls of popcorn, lolly bowls etc, plus you can get cardboard or recycled plates (or bring your own crockery) so your party can be more sustainable in nature...

4. Bring a portable speaker and play the best kids party game classics, like musical statues! Buy a newspaper and an array of small gifts and do a pass the parcel (make that the night before, it is surprisingly time consuming!).

5. If you want to theme the party but not have to spend money on decorating the venue, choose a dress up theme like super hero's so the kids bring the theme with them..
