What should I keep in mind when planning a children's birthday party?

To ensure a fun-filled day, there are a few factors to consider when choosing a party venue:

Venue Type

If you're looking for a relaxed and chill atmosphere or something more exciting and festive, Gold Coast has a wide range of options to choose from. From beachfront bars and restaurants to private party rooms and open-air lounges, there is something to suit all tastes.


Your budget will largely determine what type of venue you can book and the amenities available. Be sure to allocate enough funds for food and drinks, decorations, entertainment and other supplies needed to ensure a successful event. Additionally, many venues offer special packages tailored specifically for birthday parties, that include a dedicated party host, party bags, catering, etc. So take the time to explore all that the area has to offer - you won't be disappointed!


When considering a venue for your children's birthday party, make sure that it is located in an easily accessible area. It should also be close to any additional activities you may want to include on the day (e.g. swimming pool, beach) and have ample space for all guests.

Food and Drinks

It's important to consider the food and drinks you plan to serve at your event. If you're hosting a kid-friendly birthday party, make sure that there are plenty of tasty treats available for all ages. Additionally, opt for alcohol-free options or provide your own adult beverages if you will be serving alcohol. Oh, don't forget about the birthday cake!


When planning a children’s birthday party, entertainment is key! To ensure that guests have an enjoyable time, think about booking some fun activities such as face painting, bubble soccer or hiring a live band. Alternatively, if it’s an adults-only gathering, consider playing classic charades or organising karaoke sessions. Whatever you decide to do, make sure it reflects the theme of the party.
