Are you looking for a fun and exciting venue to celebrate a birthday party? At The Pier Arcade offers an unforgettable experience that overflows with laughter, fun and entertainment.
When it comes to throwing the private party of the year, a little bit of planning can go a long way. We’ve put together a few key tips to help plan a memorable event.
1. Determine the Number of Party Guests
Whether you’re celebrating your child’s birthday party or a spring break celebration, it’s important to determine how many guests you want to include. Deciding on your number of guests from the get-go will help you prepare for an unforgettable bash.
When planning your guest list, keep the following in mind:
- Venue – each venue has a capacity and different party packages.
- Budget – the cost of the party will increase with a higher number of guests. At The Pier Arcade has different party package options that increase in both value and price.
- Parents – consider whether the children’s parents will be invited as well.
- Child’s preferences – ask your little one to review the guest list and confirm that they are happy and excited.
Top tip: Make sure that you include an RSVP date when sending out your invites so that you can plan accordingly.
2. Plan Your Munchies
Fuel the fun with delicious snacks and treats. Find out whether the venue allows food and if it offers party packs and outside food options, which can decrease a lot of stress during the planning process.
Make sure that you plan for various snacks that everyone can enjoy, including chips, popcorn, fruit and cookies. It’s better to have too many snacks than too few, so keep a few extra goodies stashed away if you run out.
Top tip: Find out about any allergies beforehand to ensure that the day goes off without a hitch.
3. Make Sure the Guests are Entertained
It’s party time which means that it’s time to have some fun! Take a moment to consider how you plan to welcome your guests and make them feel comfortable. Consider whether the group is close-knit or whether there will be any shy individuals who need more attention.
When planning an arcade party at our venue, you have confidence that your entertainment options are covered! With a range of awesome games such as air hockey, coin pushers, and interactive games, there’s no doubt that your guests will have the time of their life.
4. Organize the Decorations
