If you don't want to empty your bank account for this party, the first thing you should do is determining your budget. Only knowing how much money you can spend can you determine what type and how big this party is. You can ask yourself a few questions to help you spend the budget. For example, how old is your kid and how many children do you plan to invite? Are parents allowed to stay? How much will the food cost, the location, the cake and the entertainment?

The backyard is the most economical thus the most common location for a family to host a birthday party for their children. This is your place so you can use everything for free, and you can decorate it exactly the way you want! If you have a large backyard, then this is the perfect place. The only downside is that you have to clean up this place at the end of the day.
2. Local Park
If your house is not big enough to host a party and you don't have the budget to rent a party venue, then the local free park is your best option. The park has flat lawn for you to set up inflatable jumping castle and large open space for kids to run around, and you can sometimes find all sorts of facilities like BBQ area, picnic tables and local kiosk. The only thing to be aware of is don't forget to contact your local council to get permission. You don't want to cancel your party at the last minute because they don't approve your use of the space.
3. Indoor Play Center
If you want find a place to host your child's birthday party that has many inflatable games and rides for children and don't need to worry about cleaning up, then a local indoor play center is right for you. Some of them have themed party rooms and offer you packages including food and drinks to suit your personal budget. This option is very convenient for family with enough budget. You can also bring your cake, snacks and meals. Just remember to look up a play center near you to make it easier for your child's friends to get there and back.
4. Venue Hall
If you want to host a great party for a large number of people, then rent a special hall is the perfect solution. This option can be quite expensive, but it will be plenty of room for chairs, tables, entertainment, AV equipment and a dance floor. Some centers do not allow external catering so you may have to get food from the approved vendors only. Therefore, when booking this venue, make sure you have all things sorted.
Step Three: Food
The party food is very important but also simple. You can make some of them and buy from outside. Here are some great snack ideas for you, sandwich, ice cream, hot dogs, popcorn, candies, traditional sausage rolls, frankfurts or party pies. People right now focus on healthy living so you may want to offer some green foods like vegetable and fruits. You can cut fruit or veggies in interesting shapes to catch children's eye.
Step Four: Entertainment
In addition to the foods, another important thing that draws children to the party is entertainment. Parents also want some fun games and activities to keep the kids busy. Here are a few ides.
Bouncy castle can be considered a necessity for children's birthday parties. In addition to the bounce houses, there are more inflatables like water slides, obstacle courses and sport inflatables to keep children entertained for hours. One great benefit of inflatables for birthday parties is that you can always find the most suitable theme for your plan, the ocean or pirate theme inflatables for boys, the pink princess or cute unicorn theme for girls. Come in different size so that you can choose according to your budget.

3. Party Games
In addition to the jumping castle, you should also prepare some traditional party games for the kids in case they take a break off the inflatable. Various board games for small group, and large team games for all kids like the classic Musical Chairs. Grab X amount of chairs, one for each child. And when the music is playing, all kids need to walk around the chairs and as soon as the music stops they must run to sit down on their chair. You can remove a chair on each round, then whoever doesn't get a chair is "out". This game is so popular and suitable for large group of children.
