There are a lot of compelling reasons to consider hosting a party, such as your child's birthday, at an area restaurant. Sure, many parents go the typical restaurant party options, like a local fast food chain for a cost-efficient venue, but you have alternatives. Talk to staff at your favorite area eatery about hosting a kids' party at their establishment and weigh out the costs when it comes to your time and convenience.
Planning a party? Consider these seven reasons it makes sense to host kids' parties at your favorite restaurant.
1. Party Rooms
Find out if your favorite restaurants offer a private party space or kids' birthday party room to serve as your venue. These areas can make hosting a lot simpler and more contained.
2. Location and Parking
A local restaurant typically has the parking and convenience of a central, common locale that will be alluring to your guests. Parents will be able to find it easier, particularly if you choose a well established or familiar restaurant.
3. No Need to Clean
When you host your party at a restaurant, you are off the hook from cleaning your home in preparation for the event. For instance, there is no need to scrub the bathrooms for party guests — the restaurant takes care of that for you!
4. The Potential
Set up a meeting with the restaurant manager or owner during normal business hours to discuss decorating possibilities and potential. This is the time to ask permission to bring in any outside food or favors, like a birthday cake or balloons. Never assume that you can do whatever you wish; you don't want your favorite venue to get in trouble or be fined for violating local fire codes or ordinances during your event.
5. The Time Confines
When you rent out space in a restaurant for a party, you are usually held to a fairly strict window of time. This can help you confine your party to a designated time frame, avoiding stragglers and getting you home on time after.
6. Extra Supervision
Hosting in a public place like a restaurant encourages parents of your young guests to stay, which provides extra supervision overall.
7. Less Work Overall
Basically, renting out a restaurant space for the party cuts down on the work that you, the host, will have to do. The staff at the venue provide ease and convenience that allows you to take time out to enjoy the party, too.
Even though the party isn't in your home, you are still the host. Be responsible and keep an eye out to ensure things go smoothly. Also, be gracious and courteous to the venue staff. It is the classy thing to do.
If you are planning a kids' party, consider why it makes sense to host it at an area restaurant. Ask about exclusive party rooms that can accommodate, yet contain, the festivities. Also, plan ahead to speak with staff about exactly what is and is not permitted, in terms of décor, activities, and outside food, such as the cake.Share

Welcome to my website. My name is Joanne Taylor. My family and I love eating out at restaurants, but with there being five of us, it can get expensive. In order to be able to continue to indulge in the luxury of eating at restaurants, my husband and I have come up with ways to order and save money. We always thought that ordering kids meals for young children was the cheapest way to go. But we found in many cases, it’s less expensive to order one regular meal and let our two youngest children split it. We make use of coupons whenever possible, restaurant daily specials, early bird specials, and other money savers. I’m going to share some of the ways we’ve been creative in the hope that you will find some useful tips.
