You have heard of Destination Weddings right? Folks decide to pick a beautiful vacation spot to exchange vows and invite their family and friends to witness the celebration. And celebration it is with everyone in vacation mode. Think St. Croix, Jamaica, Hawaii, Jackson Wyoming and even our very own Jersey Shore.
Well, Destitnation Birthday Parties run along the same vein but there is a much less of a commitment.
Destination Birthday Parties feature a super cool place within 1 to 2 hours drive from the Birthday Kid's home. It is an opportunity to bring all your friends to your favorite museum, indoor water park, theme park or even on a train ride. Just imagine the possibilites.
Here is how it works:
1. Decide on a budget (this will help determine where you can have your destination birthday party)
2. Pick a Place
3. Call to find out about Group Rates, Birthday Party Packages and cost for Chaperones. Ask for a discounted rate, what is the worst that can happen?
4. Decide on how many kids to invite.
5. Send out invitation with a RSVP of One week Prior. Also note, ask Parents to Drive Children to the venue. You may also want to include driving directions, a schedule of events and exactly what the parents/drivers should do while the party is going on.
6. Meet the Birthday Party Guests at your venue and be ready for some fun!
