  • Visit potential birthday party venues to make sure the space is large enough for your group size and the layout works for your shindig’s needs – including amenities. 
  • When researching birthday party venues in Sheffield, look at the online reviews and see what past customers have to say. 
  • Check if your preferred location is available on or near your birthday.
  • Ask about the deposit and payment schedule.  
  • Check if your venue hire in Sheffield has any restrictions concerning elements such as a minimum age, parking, and accessibility. 
  • Estimate your number of guests.
  • Set a budget that includes birthday party venue hire, catering, decorations, DJ/band, etc… 
  • Send your dapper invites – virtual or printed. 
  • What are the drink options? Are you offering your attendees an open bar or drinks on tables? 
  • Decide on the catering, such as a 3-course meal, hot buffet, or finger food. 
  • Create the ideal theme/style for your party and plan exciting decorations accordingly.
  • Consider games or interactive activities like photo booths. 
  • Keep track of RSVPs – the birthday party venue will need to know the exact numbers for catering. 
  • If it’s a seated party, put together engaging table arrangements. 
  • Advise transportation and accommodation options available to your guests.
  • On the day of the party arrive early to check everything is looking exactly how you had in mind for an extraordinary afternoon or evening. 
  • Post-event, collect anything you saved at the birthday party venue from the night before.
