Budget: Once, you have found a few options, review pricing and packaging for each venue. This can be found on the Confetti Jar website under the Business Pricing and Packaging tab for each kid's birthday party place profile. Keep in mind, most venues charge per child, so consider a package that will fit your attendee count. To keep within budget, consider all-inclusive options. Many kids party venues offer food, drinks, decor, and even party favors in some of their packages.

Birthday Party Packages: Be sure to understand what will be included in your party package and what you will choose to bring. Most all-inclusive packages do not offer birthday cakes or desserts, so we recommend considering local Atlanta bakeries to add these themed treats for your celebration. 

Does the package include a private party space? If so, how long will you have access to the space? Some venues may limit set-up and clean up time in their private party space so keep this in mind as you plan any decor or themed items you may be bringing.

Check to see if these items and extras are included in your kids birthday party package. That way, you can plan accordingly when finalizing your party plans:

  • Food
  • Beverages
  • Decorations
  • Paper goods including plates, cupcakes, napkins, utensils
  • Party favors
  • Party host or coordinator
  • Private party space

If food is not included in your package, understand requirements and options for bringing in your own food if you are planning to serve meals or snacks. Some venues may require use of their caterers or have limitations on the type of food that can be brought in.

Other considerations when choosing the best kids birthday party place around Atlanta:

  • Does the venue offer easy to access parking? Are there options you can provide your guests for convenient venue parking?
