A great party - sometimes referred to as a "destination party" is the type of party that involves going someplace for your party activities, rather than having your party at home.
What is the allure of a party away from home? Some people like it because they don't have to use their home for a party. Others like the convenience of having a party planner take care of all the details, leaving them free to enjoy the party themselves.
Especially for places that do kids parties (bowling alleys, rock climbing places, arcades, etc.) - birthday parties at these one stop family entertainment centers can account for a good chunk of their revenue, so they have the party system down pat.
If you have a favorite spot where you like to go, check and see if they offer a birthday party package deal. Often priced at a flat fee, packages can include decorations, cake, servers, someone to be in charge of your party and invitations. Sometimes food and drink are available too, and themed goody bags or favors can often be provided for an additional fee.
Party venues can be as varied and only limited by your imagination (and by how much money you want to spend.) BUT you can have a party at a different spot, and one that is free! Instead, for a party, how about a park or the beach?
Weigh all your options, then decide what will fit your personal style, time and party budget best.
